    CE Version: 0x026C
    Diagnostics Key: 20080828-2054
    Receiver: HR20-700

    Issue: Stuttering Video. Once again, while watching channel 654-1 FSN FL HD, during the Rays / Jays game, the video began stuttering to the point of being unwatchable. A menu reset fixed the problem. The diagnostics key was sent as the video was stuttering. Hopefully this problem will get corrected soon. As stated in earlier posts, I had not experienced stuttering video until this CE cycle started.

    On a side note, I still get no daily fortune but can get the widgets coming soon screen to pop up. Network services still fails the system test.

    Life is still good here. Another firmware update and my printer/receivers are all on the network living in harmony.

    Version 0271, HR20-700, HR21-700

    For the first time ever, the network, Internet and Network Svc worked right on the first boot after the upgrade. YAY! Fortunes and widgets were immediately available.

    My HR21-700 that I give info for this special request was just replaced on 9/2/2008 with the HR21-100 so I don't know if this issue applies.

    R22-100 Report ID: 20080907-3BEB
    HR20-100 Report ID: 20080907-20F6
    HR21-100 Report ID: 20080907-31D1
    CE: 0x0274

    Issue: After download and restart network services failed and info screen showed bang and n/a (301) and also showed internet was not connected. I connected to internet and at first the R22 still failed network services and but the other passed no problem. The R22 had Daily Fortune in the menu so I selected that and pulled up the fortune and after that network services passed. I have no Widgets on all three receivers but I think thats becase they were disabled for this release. Also before I downloaded the ce I changed the network services from manual to automatic on the R22 and HR20 if that might have something to do with the issue.

    Software: 0x0274
    Receiver: HR20-700
    Diagnostic Key: 20080907-2A19

    Issues: Stuttering video, network issues. Well once again, I am experiencing the stuttering video on all channels; SD, HD, OTA. Channel changes seem to correct the problem. Thankfully it hasn't got to the point of being unwatchable.

    As far as the network issues are concerned, I am sucessfully connected to the network and internet. Network services are set to manual settings as are my IP address settings. System test passes except for network services and in the system info I have status: 5000 for the network status. I still have no daily fortune and now with this release I can no longer get the widgets coming soon screen to display. I am not sure what else to try to get this network services stuff to work. Many many CE's ago, it was working just fine.

    0x274 - still no issues with any of the DVRs and the printer being on the network. Keep it up!

    I'm not sure if this thread is dead or not, but still no issues here.

    Yes, and since the "special" firmware went into a CE, it is probably time for the mods to close the thread.
