Upgraded the firmware to 202
I ran into my first problems over the weekend. I experimented with recording two shows simultaneously - that "worked" but the dvr was less than graceful about it.
- I tried to record a third program in the same time slot to see what would happen. It was not pretty. It wiped out all the guide data, said something about a failed internet connection (I'm not using the ethernet port) but continued on fine a moment later. The guide data re-populated soon afterward.
- when the dual programs were recording, it did allow me to flip between the 2 channels, but not any others (what I though it what do) but shortly afterward, it flashed an error message about a failed update.
- at some point during the recordings, the output to my tv stopped
- after the recordings, one of the recordings was split in two. One half had the incorrect program title/description. The other recording had no program title or description. But otherwise the recordings were fine.
So, I upgraded the firmware to 202 (using USB). I only watched it for an hour or so afterward it seemed ok. I have a recording set up for tonight. I'll see how it goes. I'll try a simultaneous recording later this week to see it the new version handles it better.
