I got a message to download a new upgrade Friday 7/20 around 1:15am. I clicked later. It then downloaded at 2:08am.

I've searched the forum for this upgrade 0x17e and can't find any information. Can someone give me a link to a thread about this upgrade?

Right now, the only change I can find is on the My List page. There's some yellow print about some sort of tip.

Which CE is the same or similar to this 0x17e upgrade? I'm trying to figure out what changes have been made other than the yellow print tip in My List.

What about the HR20-100? Almost everything centers around updates for the HR20-700 in other forums. When will the next CE be for the HR20-100?:confused:

Don't worry, HundredNation Brother. Our time will come. As Earl and Tom have mentioned, there are many more -700 boxes out in service. For now, they are focusing on testing the -700, then updating the -100. For the last 2 months, the -100 has received a NR about every 30 days. (and it looks like we might be getting another one soon)

Once there are more -100 units out, I'm sure we'll get some CE's as well. In the mean time, we can enjoy our fine HR20's and let Team700 work out the bugs.

If you really mean CE and not national release, this should give you some hope:

I didn't check my HR20 before leaving the house this morning so for all I know, I may have it.

However, I just read Earl's announcement of the upgrade and this caught my eye:

New feature(s)
...

  • Fast Forward correction to compensate user response time when pressing PLAY key
...


WOO HOO!!!! :) :) :up:

Another TiVo advantage erased!

Not that I consider this a "competition" with TiVo, mind you, but this was one of TiVo's features I missed the most! :)

Yes, this feature is working well, IMHO. As part of the CE team, I've enjoyed early access to this feature.

Since the hundred nations always feel left out, you get the CE release tonight of what "we" get as a national release.
You guys [& gals] are catching up.
Do good with your CE and you might get to join us for the next CE. :D

Or if you are fortunate enough to have both a -100 and a -700, then you can play with the -700 CE until its national, then get to see if you can locate all the bugs later on the -100!!

You could also look at it this way: "we" don't get to roll back from an untested [CE'd] release while you get to test and rollback if needed.
You'll have been wanting to play, here's your chance.
Do a good job & "they" might think you can "play well with others". :lol:
