    All

    After my 7 resets in one day saga DTV sent me out a new box. Couple of things I noticed right out of the box are:

    1) Manufacture Date 11/13/06 instead of 9/23/06 of my old device

    2) New remote with much larger buttons on it

    It had the old 0xbe 8/29 FW on it so am forcing the download now. Funnily enough 0xbe seemed fast in comparison to the newer FW but I am downloading anyway for comparison testing.

    Hopefully this unit will be more stable but will post more when I have tested

    I'm not sure what the good box bad box ratio is but if you experience the same problems it would be interesting to know. It would certainly lend credibility to some people's contention that it is less HR20 issues and more setup issues (ie. cabling, switching, etc.)

    It would be interesting to get an idea from everyone what their manufacture date is on their boxes

    I believe there is a thread for that very purpose.
