Free announces Freebox Revolution STB firmware update

Wednesday 12 September 2012 | 09:28 CET | News
French broadband operator Free has announced a firmware update for its Freebox Revolution STB. Thanks to its HDMI CEC functionality, the STB's remote control can be used to turn their TV and other audiovisual equipment on and off, control the volume, etc. The Freebox Revolution now also offers Picture in Picture functionality, allowing viewers to watch two channels simultaneously. For example, they can see a programme while keeping an eye on another channel for the start of a film they want to watch.
