    I just noticed a software update on my receiver. It's 1.2.42 and I got it this morning. It's the first update on this receiver since July '05. Does anybody know what was updated? I'm not seeing anything different.

    Since I haven't had mine plugged in since 2004, no I can't. :D

    It was a good box though...

    The only reason I noticed that my Samsung had been upgraded, is the night before I displayed a message the it had failed the upgrade and would try again.

    I searched the net and did not see any information on the upgrade.

    I went through the system menus and did not see any thing different.

    This has been moved to the SD receiver discussion forum.

    I agree this has no place in the SD forums. This is an HD receiver it just doesn't do the new MPEG4 channels. But unlike DIRECTVs new receivers it still has OTA NTSC Tuners as well as the ATSC tuners.

    I've got two of these in the closet, and they always worked flawlessly. I wonder if the OTA ATSC tuner, which is pretty good, still works after the FW upgrade on a receiver which is not activated? I can't imagine what they would be upgrading after all this time on an mpeg2 receiver???

    1.2.42

    ~Fixes problem with loss of guide (for example, problem cell filled with Regular Schedule).
    ~Guide data will be reduced from 7 days to 5 days.

    First thing - cool.

    Second - kind of sucks.

    My TS360 recently started locking up while watching Ch. 12 the NBC station in Phoenix. Does anyone know if update 1.2.42 would fix that? It's 1.2.35 now, how do I get the update?

    Since this is in the SD section, I have a ts360 which I bought "new" a few years ago and never activated. I was wondering if I could have it replace one of my old receivers and use it for just SD without paying the HD fee? I currently use it for OTA. I only have 101 and 119 LNBs on. Currently using R-15 DVR and an old RCA unit.
