    New Software - 4/11/2006
    Manufacture 500-10B8
    Manufacture 300-???? (I don't have the version for the 300 Model Yet)
    ---------------
    As reported by Kwilis
    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=56288

    The 10B8 software version is starting to spool out.

    Here is the list of items addressed in this release.

    - 30 Second SLIP
    Hitting the Clockwise Advance button (forward) the unit will FF exactly 30s of recorded material. It takes 2.5s to move the 30s. You can hit the button multiple times (the onscreen display will tell you how many times you hit it). 6 times will "slip" past a standard network commercial brake. Also during the movement the progress par will only remain on the screen for a few seconds.

    - XM Background and Screen Saver
    The XM Channels now have an updated background and now have the DirecTV Screen Saver

    - XM Trick Play Improved
    Some of the previously mentioned issues with Trick Play in the XM enviornment have been improved.

    - Stability Fixes; Specifically (but not limited to) Find By Keyword/Title

    - To Be Announced in ToDo List; Corrected (this primarily affected Local Channel Records)

    Some Notes:
    -) Don't go crazy deleting all your Series Links this time around. Only delete ones that you think are not functioning correctly. However, more improvements to the Series Link logic did occur in this release.
    -) This list is subject to change....

    PLEASE DON"T POST... DIDN'T GET IT, or GOT IT tracking posts in this thread, they will be deleted

    You read it right. The 'jump to the end' button now functions as a 30 second advance button. Unlike UTV or Tivo it acts like a fast forward because it takes 3 seconds to do the 30 second jump. This is something I really missed from UTV and I am glad they added it.



    Bug #1
    This is the problem which happens when viewing a currently recording program on delay. When the recording ends the very next button push of the "Jump Back 6 Seconds" button will cause the "Do You Want To Delete?" message to pop up. This causes you to have to exit the program and start over and then fast forward to where the bug happened. Very frustrating especially with sports because you have to FF over a couple of HOURS to get back to where you were before.
    This bug has been FIXED.
    this problem looked like it was fixed when I tried it, but later tonight the same bug happened twice. sorry.



    Bug #2
    This is another "Jump Back 6 Seconds" bug. This button doesn't consistently jump back 6 seconds but instead will jump anywhere from 2 to 7 seconds back randomly. Most annoying is when it jumps back 6 seconds, plays about a second of video, jumps FORWARD about 2 seconds, then plays video. It's very quick(like a fast video glitch) and it appears most people don't even notice it, BUT I DO.
    This bug has been oops, I thought it was fixed but the problem remains. It does seem to be improved though, and usually shows up only after2 or more 'jump back' presses.

    Specifically, has the first run vs. repeat logic been improved at all?

    So, does this mean that I can no longer press ADVANCE twice to get me back to the beginning of a recording?

    You'll probably have to hit FF then advance twice.

    Anyone had a chance to check the live buffer to see if it does not clear when going to active, or my vod, etc.?

    Okay....

    Just had a nice long conversation with my contact... Here is the deal.

    10B8 is the next version... However.... It is in an EXTREMELY limited release mode... Those of you that have recieved it, happened to be at the right place at the right time. Right now, it is not expected to be pushed completely for at least another week, he will let me know when.

    So at this point, you can try the 02468 and you may get "lucky" as the slowly release it to more areas, but don't go crazy with it. It should go full tilt in about a week or so.

    With that said... I too now have the 10B8 version (on one of my boxes), remember... "Someone up there loves me.. :) "

    As of right now.. all is good with it. As for the mentioned FF "Slip" issue that was posted here... It didn't happen on my system. And didn't happen on the test systems at DirecTV (they saw the post and tried it).

    IMHO it is either some sort of miscommunication, or an issolated error on a system, or i just flat out incorrect...

    FYI... just got an email...

    You don't lose the previous "Advance button function" with the 30s Slip
    Push and hold the Forward Advance button down, and you will jump to the end as you have before.

    Yeah I just figured that out too, BUT cant seem to find a way to jump back to the beginning. Seems you have to go to the yes/no delete now, select no (goes back to myvod) and re-play it.

    Has anyone been able to confirm if the logic has been changed so the system knows the difference between first run and repeats?
