So far my experience has been this release has very few improvements over the last. I'm seeing fewer dropouts of the whole picture and video, but still getting 3-5 second audio dropout on both my HD locals (MPEG4) and other stations. I'm still seeing programs that I've deleted listed in MyPlaylist. I still have problems with recurring manual recordings not recording or showing up in the To Do List. I still have situations watching shows where the unit becomes unresponsive to any pause/rw/ff commands. I never had the "Searching for Satellite" issue, and don't have an external drive plugged in (what's the point of adding storage if there's a 50 show limit in the Prioritizer?). In summary, you're not missing much.
