    We're expecting a software push sometime this weekend for our PC playback receivers. :)

    So please don't download this weekend's normal CE for those HR20-700s.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    (And as always, release notes and other paperwork as soon as we get it.)

    Will there be a location to download software to the PC that will be needed to view it the HR20?

    If we see that software hasn't been pushed at 10PM CST tonight, any harm of doing the CE in case the push doesn't happen this weekend?

    We have no details on WHEN it will be pushed, what the version will contain... where the PC software will be... ect.


    Don't download the CE tonight for the systems that are part of the trial.
    As at this time, I do not know what the side effects will be.

    There is a 90% chance now that you will get a version.

    It will be pushed, once it is available.
    It's feature set will be very close to that of tonight's CEs for the other systems.

    Software for the PC side of the equation, will be forwarded on soon.

    How do we want to hand testing of these releases? Will there be a thread generated like standard CE releases, with release notes, and do we post any and all problems or only stuff pertaining to the PC capability?

    I am sure there will be a issue thread in this forum and they will want us to post all issues.


    BTW thanks for the update Earl. I can't wait to get started!!!

    Once we have the details of the release...
    We will have an issue threads.

    We will probably have two threads.

    One for general DVR issues (like missed recordings, failed recordings)
    Then one specificall for the PC feature.

    Similar to what we had initially with DoD

    Thanks for the update. :)

    I submitted one of my two HR20s for the trial so I'll be downloading tonight's CE for the non-trial HR20.

    I was wondering about software for the PC end.
    (Asked earlier but nobody responded)
