    Since you asked (and I liked the idea), we've created this thread as an subscription thread for the moderators to make general announcements including new firmware pushes, PC application software upgrades, new requests for information or testing, etc.

    So if you would like emails of the announcements, subscribe to this thread with an instant email option.

    Just like the other subscription announcement threads (like the CE Announcements) only moderators can post to this thread. Usually with a link to the thread with the full announcement itself.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    CE Early Estimate

    Software Download Windows:
    Push and FTP download

    HMC Playback status: Maybe this weekend. (Last estimate was 50%)

    Expected is greater than 75%
    Possible is greater than 50%
    Maybe is greater than 25%

    This round will include both client software and HR20 firmware upgrades that must be applied in conjunction. As you can imagine, the logistics of getting the two pieces of software (from two companies) at the same readiness is more difficult than just working on something that is entirely in your direct control.

    DIRECTV is hoping for this weekend, tho only if testing proves successful.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    There is an early anticipation of CE activity this weekend. I'm guessing both HR20 and client, but as always, things may change. We'll keep you posted.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    There is a new client, V4224 available at any of the three normal sites.

    http://hr20.dbstalk.com/PC-Playback
    http://www.sizethis.com/download/PC-Playback/

    as well as the original FTP use/site.

    That said, don't download tonight's CE on the HR20-700 (or at least one receiver) if you want to test the client. This week is a step back CE as a National release candidate so turns off PC playback.

    Cheers,
    Tom
