The thing just keeps doing exactly what it's supposed to do.
It doesn't need to be rebooted.
I don't need to clear any cache or turn off any features or anything. It just keeps working.
My wife's looking at me like she's thinking I may no longer be needed around here. :D

Yeah, Hopper/Joey are pretty stable, that is, once they are set up. Initial setup is a pain in the ass. Hopefully they'll preload some better software on them in the future, as the initial firmware on Hopper (S051) is VERY touchy.

S0.16 ? I've seen only S0.54

Mine is starting to act flaky. Twice now, I have turned it on to watch something and the 30-second skip button wouldn't work. The second time, almost none of the buttons responded - FF/Pause/Stop. It just refused to do much. Trying to go into System Diagnostics didn't work - it said it would have to stop recording to do a system test.

The first time, I did a reboot after it froze completely some 10 minutes into the program.

The second time, I turned it off and then back on, and everything worked fine.

Running S212, and I only saw these problems crop up in the last few days. Not sure what the issue is.

My only problem was a corrupted on demand download of "the Smurfs" for my kids. The video was acceptable to the kids and wife but it was too choppy and with errors for me.

Perhaps overheating ?

Unfortunately you're not bored like the OP is with his system.

Gentlemen,

I have deleted several rude posts. Please be polite to each other, as I must unfortunately say that otherwise there will be consequences.
