    This thread will be used to send you "official" news about the trials.
    So subscribe to it, if you want to get notifications about software updates and other news items about the trials.

    -) No one is to open their systems for any reason. No unit will be replaced if it is damaged from opening, and you will be removed from the trials and future considerations.... so please... do not open them.

    If you are concerned that the H21/AM21 combination will not perform well... please don't be... in short order, the units will be pretty solid. However, the first release will be "high risk"... because if you revert to the NR from it, you will lose all your settings. This will be fixed in future releases of course.

    H21 testers, there will be a push tonight, Friday 10/10.

    Please revert to the national release before the push. You will lose all your settings; we regret this but hey, this a field test.

    Should we leave the AM21 connected or pull the USB cable first?

    Don't think it matters, but I plan on having the AM21 disconnected during the whole deal.

    Then so will I as my first H21 did "have problems" when I connected the AM21 before the first push.

    We may need to lock this thread as I keep getting emails.:lol:

    Not sure how to report this issue. Just reverted back to the NR and disconnected the AM21 before doing so. Went through guided setup and get a failure on 103. Signal strength on 103a says 103(s) Signal Failed. HR20's not seeing any issues

    In this case, folks, no news is not good news. There will be no software push for the H21-200 tonight.

    The primary reason for this release is stability in preparation as a candidate for National Release.

    Yes, this should not be an issue .. I'd forgot all about the fact that no one else knows that :lol: .. I will double check, though.

    So I assume this will be a "pull", not a "push" and will include the prior AM21 CE (since I haven't seen any NR notice) as well as whatever happens with "baby steps" MRV??

    Do you think we'd need the latest CE on the HR20/21 as well? I've been avoiding the CE's for the most part just because it's prime recording time of year. But I'll load it up on one of them for testing if needed.
