Trust to a parrot ? Who putting you down publicly and same time asking you in PM a technical question, what FW in stream ?
If you interesting in the info, just ask here and you will get real facts, not rumors.
Check TiVo thread here for example.

Look, I don't under stand a thing you are saying. Who is the Parrot, who got put down publicly and who got ask a PM questions, etc.?
I was just mentioning a report from another Technical media outlet. If that is not allowed or looked down on here from you or others just say so. This exercise in interpreting mixed metaphors is boring...
Thank you and
Best of luck

If you need facts, just ask here what you want to know.
Instead of pointing to somewhere where is rumors posting.

Like, what FW is spooling ? How many boxes getting gamma SW (for that mentioned S2.13) ? Etc.

Nope, you're in right place.

Easy choice: rumors - there, facts - here. :)

S212/S264: the "percent viewed" with PTAT recordings seems to be wildly inaccurate and broken. If I watch an entire PTAT recording, the percent viewed usually shows something like 5%.

It's probably 5 percent of the entire stream.

Edit

I moved a show off PTAT and watched it in its entirety... it shows only 1 percent watched.

If you tip over into the next show, (like into the padding,) then it shows the percentage of that next show. I know this because I discovered that if you skip back a little bit, you will see 99% or 100%.

It would be really usefull if they changed this percentage to be relative to only the indicated show, not the behind-the-scenes timeslot we're in.

Got my new Dish Hopper (and one Joey) yesterday -- love it. But according to their tech chat person there is no way to disable the automatic shut off from lack of activity. I used to leave my old Dish receiver on all day to entertain my parrot. Tech woman says I need to set timers so something happens on the receiver or it will shut off. Seems like that will be a nuisance, recording things I don't want and erasing them. She says you need to change the channel or do something, anything, or it will sleep. Can't teach the parrot to change channels.

All day today I was outside gardening and every time I came in Sunshine was furious, as she had no TV. Got to go to work tomorrow, so I guess I have to set timers. I've had her since 1988 and she has watched TV her whole life.

Bummer.

If you go into the Menu, Settings, Updates, you can turn off the inactivity standby on the Hopper and Joeys or change how many hours until standby. You have to do this on each unit.

Rumor has it 213/265 rolling perhaps tonight.


I see the new FW S2.13/S2.65 at 129W as test spool [ID is ZLTD and ZMTD], only 300+ devices covered. It has new Java/Apps part [AX047] and new J's [ZNTD], perhaps other changes inside.

The 300 should be seeing it ... if their machines are off during the feed window.
And if they are not sworn to secretly we'll find out about it.
