Real automated testing

Whatever buttons users can press, whatever values they can enter, we can see and do with automation. But applying inputs is only the first part of manual testing. Human testers can see subtle variations that lead them to say “that’s a bug.” This is the primary limiting aspect of automation. Programs aren’t good at seeing output and processing behaviour. They can see crashes. But they can’t notice major bugs like navigating to the wrong page or rendering an image incorrectly.

    Hi there, Very interesting blog. We have recently started using this automated STB / HD PVR test system for testing our HD PVR STB’s and it has offered us tremendous savings in terms of time and costs. It offers some really wonderful features like full viedeo search / analysis etc. Well recommended
