Despite the product being out a while now, the firmware is clearly still beta quality. It would have been nice if they completed the development before launching it before its was ready, but alas they did not.
Once I accepted that its just flakey beta firmware, I am no longer dissapointed, as I dont expect anything to really work.
At the same time however, given that's what they rolled out, I dont expect to pay full price for half a product. It would be nice if they gave 8642 users a 50% discount on cable service until such time as it truly is ready.
But for some reason they are more than happy not to do so, and would sooner lose customers (and annual revenues for life) rather than earn loyalty and respect. I will never understand such a business model.
Time to bring out the VCR for a while (or the old 8000)- at least that worked.
