I don't know if this is random or related to 2.08. Last night, just as PTAT was firing up, the Hopper crashed and rebooted. It had been acting flakey during the day... guide was not smooth and responses to remote actions such as page-up/down were very slow. Screen refreshes when switching from full screen TV to the guide (or any other menu-type display) and back were very slow, as well. After the crash and subsequent reboot, everything appeared to be back to normal. I will try to reproduce this today, after work.

Don't waste your time - there are 300 gamma testers who doing that for money. More important - there are two gamma versions what are updated 2.08.

Okay... then I guess I won't try to duplicate it. :) I wish I was getting money, though. :)

Speaking of paying them, since you're the resident spooler spotter, any idea how many have been upgraded to S2.08?
The reports are sparse to say the least, I've read more about folks not getting then getting. On the other hand the reports from getters indicate they have gotten some additional buggyness.
Thank you and
Best of luck

Looking for someone who could do that 24/7 - that's why the S2.08 full info missed - it was quick spool what lasts one hour IMO.
lparson21 mentioned 500 boxes, but I found the word off mouth in the area is not true.

The other place mentioned 5K were suppose to get S2.08. After the vet the rest, but I don't think it's been near that, just a feeling by what has been or not been posted.

Yeah, after I posted the 500 number, I read about the 5000. But since it is being randomly (from our POV) sent out, we aren't seeing as many comments about it here and at the other site as I would expect.

And S2.09 is also being reported.

Perhaps it was one time limited spool [for innocent guinea pigs :)]...

Right Now I see superseded S2.09 gamma versions ANB1/BLB1 spooling for 270 boxes.

POV ? What is that ? What relation you have with the SW Dept ? Or just spreading around someone's posted info ?

POV = Point of View. It appears to "us" to be random, not targeted.
If you could actually see the targeting it would be less random.

S208 crashed again, just now. Start of PTAT. Two nights in a row after almost a week of trouble-free performance. Interesting stuff.

I will not be posting a screen shot when I get S2.09 (or whatever I get next) either.
It is not needed.

OMG.

I would read a question before reply ... just in case if the process ignored - asking for DATE and TIME, no need screenshot for such thing.

As clearly stated, I will not be providing a picture - and I do not believe any picture or further information should be demanded. If someone wants to share the date of their download it is their choice - not a requirement nor something that should be asked for in a demeaning manner.

Hey... make those crashes three nights in a row. Something has definitely gone south with S208. Bedroom Hopper is still on S207 and works fine. I'm going to do a power-off reset when I get home from work today if 208 is still there.

Any comments on whether the new software release will allow me to play previously recorded programs from currently unsubcribed channels?

Thanks.
