Rogers 8300HD 1.89 firmware update (Rollout Begins week of Jan 8th)
I had an email conversation yesterday with a CSR at Rogers about the update to the firmware version 1.88 for the SA8300HD. He said that Rogers is current doing a segment by segment update to this latest firmware, and we all should have it soon. He also suggested doing power cycle to the device, which will apply the update if it is available.
No timeframe from them, but its good to know that it is coming. Just FYI.
For anyone interested, here are a few of the new features;
- Faster FF 128x
- Fixes for HDMI issues (including intermittent Pause/FF/REW issues when HDMI is used)
- Ability to "Play from beginning" when tuning to a show in progress that you are recording.
- Record setting for "First Run on this channel", in addition to "TimeSlot" and "All episodes"
- Plus many bug fixes.... (including the 'jump to live' issue when watching a show that is being recorded)
