Interview: Shaw Direct says recent firmware update a success

At the beginning of September, Shaw Direct introduced new firmware for the company’s flagship HD (model HDDSR 605) and HD PVR (model HDPVR 630) satellite receivers.

Since that time, the Digital Home forum has been flooded with complaints from HDDSR 605 and HDPVR 630 owners who say the new firmware has significantly slowed down the speed of the user interface, spontaneous resets, lost recordings, and missed recordings.
