Fetch will be rolling out the much anticipated 2.26 Litchfield update to Optus Fetch set top boxes commencing Monday 15th June 2020 and concluding Monday 22nd June 2020.
This update has changed the set top boxes (STB) in multiple ways. Below are a few of the bigger changes:
Amazon Prime Video:
The Amazon Prime Video app will be added to Fetch Mighty boxes at Menu > Apps > Prime Video. The app lets you watch exclusive Amazon Originals, as well as popular TV shows and movies.
Existing Amazon Prime Video subscribers
Simply go to Apps > Prime Video on your Fetch box to see your box code. Enter the code at primevideo.com/mytv to sign in and start watching on your Fetch box.
New to Amazon Prime Video?
If you don’t have an Amazon Prime Video you can go to www.primevideo.com to sign up. Once signed up follow the flow for existing Amazon Prime Video subscribers.
*Amazon Prime Video will be rolled out to Mini set top boxes in a future update.
10 All Access:
The 10 all access has moved from the apps dropdown menu. For customers to access 10 All Access they will need to go to Menu > Apps > All > 10 All Access.
Other functionality of the app has remained the same.
Stan in 4K:
This update will allow the Mighty set top box to view Stan content in 4K if available.
To view 4K content customers must have the following:
*Not all content on Stan is 4K but can be easily identified with a 4K icon next to the content synopsis.
Optimised Audio Settings:
You can adjust your settings to optimise audio performance on Fetch. The following steps are the best way to increase volume and / or equalise it across different content types.
Pair your Fetch remote with your TV.
Enable 5.1 Surround Sound & Audio Levelling (Audio Levelling on Mighty only).
Optimised Video Settings:
You can optimise your video experience by selecting the ‘Auto’ option in video settings. Your Fetch box will then select the highest possible video quality available on your TV for the content you are watching.
To change to Auto video settings please do the following
Menu > Manage > Settings > Audio and visual > Video > Auto
New Parental Control:
Fetch have added some new Parental Control features for enhanced worry-free kids viewing. These can all be accessed at Menu > Manage > Parental Controls
The new features gives parents the ability to block viewing at specific hours of the day and to lock down access to specific channels or apps.
How to get this new Software update on your Fetch Mighty:
The STB will detect the upgrade and will download and install the update automatically. This will not involve customers having to do anything and usually happens overnight.
Another method is forcing the update by restarting the set top box. This can either by done via the settings or power cycling the set top box.
Thank you so much for replying. I spoke to the Optus Fetch help about this also and my Fetch box won't do it as it is a series 2. They are sending me a new Fetch mighty and that should solve the issue. Thank you again.
My Box updated yesterday, and now we have no picture.
The sound works on all channels.
The Menus all work
The apps such as Netflix/ Optus Sport can be browsed but when you play something it is a blank screen with just audio.
When we called Optus they have sent another box but our 2nd box in the bedroom has now updated and now has the exact same issue. It seems to be an issue with the update so I doubt a new Box will fix it. I would personally recommend not updating until this issue is resolved.
Has anyone else had a similar problem?
Hi. After installing this new update, I can’t watch all of Optus Sport programs through the Fetch box. When I try to watch, by way of example, a reply or highlights, it ask me to log on again. When I try to log on again in Optus Sport, it says I need a premium account. Never had this problem before the update. Please help. Thanks
