No beans to spill.

They have been working on the next release, since the release of the last one. But most of my contacts are still "recovering" from holiday time off... so new information yet.

Personally, unless they have a fix for a critical bug, I'd rather them spend the month working on a rock solid release to squish as many of these nagging bugs that some people are still seeing.

Also everyone needs to understand that updates will start coming farther and farther apart as the platform becomes more mature.

Earl, it's funny to see your face with tight lips, when you typing the reply :D :p

BTW, each section of spooling SW ( a few packets, up to 4 KB ) is secured by 4 bytes CRC, so there is no way to get corrupted image as someone mentioned here.

ROFL!

I can see why typing round here might make you a bit squeeky!

Let us know when we should beg to play beta tester. As long as it is not only availaibe during the first LOST of the spring season, I am good with anything that might make this box better.

No offense, but when 80% of the forum is getting regular (daily) black screens requiring red button resets, no one at DirecTv should be getting vacation outside of Xmas and New Years day...sorry, if I cranked out as much sh#t as D* has in this last update causing a non stop black screen party on everyones TV at my job, I would not be worrying about vacation..........I woulb be washing my Arby's smock, as thats where these "programmers" as they call themselves, should be working...

My xmas eve was littered with 3 red button resets on the NFL Sunday Ticket....my little gift from D*....

But seriously, hope you had a good holiday though Earl....

I've had no black screen issues, as have many others. I'd love to see where you get your "80%" figure from....

He must be a politician to use statistics like that.

Not to speak for him, but I'm sure he got it from this poll, which is at exactly 80% (at this moment) having had the BSB at one point. So no the poll doesn't indicate that 80% have it daily, but 80% of the population in this very unscientific poll have had it at least once. Personally, I've had it 2 or 3 times in almost 2 weeks. Not daily, but not acceptable either. I don't know if I'd go so far as to say that all the D* programmers should be fired and working at Arby's, but I'd like to see these issues fixed as soon as possible (as I'm sure everyone does).

I thought I read somewhere that D* was having a problem duplicating the black screen bug. Kinda hard to fix if you can't duplicate it.

For the record, I've been bit by the black screen bug a few times.

Unless I missed it, I don't recall seeing the steps to replicate it. I've seen a few ideas, but no concrete steps to replicate it, so I'd say that would be hard to fix. (not a programmer, but cars are like that too)
