OK, nobody here has the slighest clue how DIRECTV is setup to code and implement their firmware.
Nobody here has the slighest clue what DIRECTV's capabilities and skill levels are.
Nobody here should pretend they have the slighest clue how to do it better.
Lets get back to the topic of the 0x05CD/0x45CD firmware. If you want to discuss something else start a thread but don't do it here.
OK, I don't know where this is coming from, but to get back on topic.
I hope you aren't speaking for DIRECTV, because this software release is unacceptable. In the real world, I would demand a roll back to the previous version that worked. Having to power-off and power-on my $2000 A/V receiver everytime I change stations is unacceptable.
Having risen to the top of my profession as a systems engineer of more than 30 years, I don't care about the details of how DIRECTV produces software. All I care about is the failed result. As a customer since 1997, I have kept this company on the map through battles with network TV and several technology changes.
If the topic of this forum is the poor implementation of 0x5cd, then that is what I care about. It needs to be fixed quickly.
