This is a "start over" discussion thread
The original discussion thread, had some good information about 0x108.. but it was over run with other discussions. So now that the user base is increasing (thanks to Santa), I have decided to "restart the discussion"

PLEASE keep this thread about issues/concerns/items about the 0x108 release.

Not about... why isn't it pushed to everyone one.
Is there going to be another Santa Claus run... ect...
First Bug?:
When going into the antenna set up area, the box to choose "Inital Setup" etc., covers up some text on the screen. Not a big deal, but some folks might be annoyed.
The only thing I have found so far is, that initial setup didn't pick up all of the sub-channels on some stations. Is there a way to manually add a sub-channel?

Right now, no.
It is based off the guide-data database.
Its working well here. I do have one sub-channel that is not showing up in the guide.

Ok, that is no biggy. But, that would be a good feature for them to add in the future.
So far.... "Pinky" hasn't shown up. Could this be the end of the pinkster?
I added a poll, to get a simple count of how everyone got 0x108...
Note: I voted "other" ;)

Can we start a "Bring back Pinky" thread?
Been spying on you the last few days. Decided to join. Downloading in Idaho.
I started reviewing some of my recordings to see how the update effected them. I do this with every update. I recorded the movie Eight Below (For my kids!) prior to 0x104. When I tried to bring it up after 0x108 the screen just stayed blank. I reset and now all but 2 minutes of the movie is gone. Not a big deal, I guess this type of problem is not unusual?

Otherwise everything seems to work.
Not sure if this is a software or hardware issue . . . but, although I was able to receive wbbm (ch. 2) via my tv's atsc, my hr20 will not acquire the signal.

Could there be a sensitivity difference between the tuners, or might the software require a minimum signal strength before giving a green light?

A BIG "PLEASE" :lol:

Try the signal meter under settings, sat&antenna, antenna setup signal strength
An odd situation here....with 0108 local channels acquired fine. However, I now see that the video is slightly pushed off to the left, I'm losing perhaps 5% of the picture. This is occuring on all OTA HD channels when the 480i/480p "crop" mode is selected. It also appears on MPEG4 channels. I do NOT see the effect when viewing in 1080, any mode, just 480. The monitor is a Sony XBR series 32" set, hooked up with component cables.

You could also try a preamp ampliphier from Radio Shack
