    Mine crashed at what looked like after the forced reboot about 30 min ago. Had to pull power.

    Same thing happened last time iirc. After reboot its successfully downloading now on second push attempt. (no user intervention)

    I haven't even gone to the app yet, I wanted to see if the MediaShare issues were fixed first. I fired up music and was able to skip through songs with ease. I tried video as well and it worked with no issues!

    OK, got to ask, why is this CE release called HMC Lite while the prior CE was just HMC????

    Could be just a name change. Remember SWM used to be called FTM and MediaShare used to be called Media Bridge, IIRC.

    HMC Lite Server is what shows up on my network and that is what it has been since the first update for PC playback so maybe it should have said HMC Lite all along.

    I'm hoping that somewhere out there is a HMC "Standard" that has MRV in it:D

    As far as the name change, it's something I got while processing the release notes. Also it is the plug and play name of the device. The name may not be permanent, but we'll see. Did anyone notice the PC Playback software was renamed as well?

    Both favorites lists were empty and needed to be rebuilt.

    It's close enough to "after Sunday" to mention, again, that I didn't get the update.

    Hopefully, someone will notice and push it out with the correct Card ID. Boy, one mistake and it lives with you forever; perhaps that's the nature of the internet.

    I can't really post this where it oughta be posted but I know many of the same people read this:

    HR21-200 (0x022b) now shows three actors, a director and writer in its info. HR20-700 HMC Lite (0x1229) now shows six actors, no director and no writer. I do not know if there is a limitation on the size of the More Info screen but I would like six actors and a director and writer.

    I noticed this last night, my playlist is set up for A-Z but wasn't in that order. I'd manually change my playlist to A-Z but it didn't take. Menu reset fixed it.

    Also noticed this in the AM. All that I did was change the sort order to something else then back to A-Z and it's OK again.

    I have had this problem with the last couple of updates too.

    Same thing worked for me but the last time I did it the problem happened again after a day or so.

    At 7:30PM, "Lewis Black's Root of All Evil" was scheduled to record from Comedy Central. The recording started on schedule and stopped on schedule. It was completely playable.

    However, DURING the recording, the history entry for the recording IN PROGRESS said Canceled, with detail of "This recording was canceled by the user (1/0/)."

    After the recording the history entry changed to "Recorded."

    Problem

    I have only had this problem with one program so far but yesterday I had a recording of "NFL Total Access" on NFL Network HD (212).

    The program was still recording when I started watching it but it had already recorded the first half an hour of the hour program.

    Two times when I pressed FW to FW through a commercial it exited me out of the program. Then one time I got exited out of the program and I did not press anything.
