I am REALLY happy with the update and everything seems to work much better. No missing recordings, no need to reboot after adding/removing recordings and the 'most excellent' performance improvements (Deleting recordings/scheduling-rescheduling etc) are significant IMHO
SD_630_SUPPORT: I did have a problem last night where audio/video were fullscreen but when I tried to use any function where the video was in the video window (Guide, DVR List, Options), the video was displayed in the video window correctly, but everything else was black. I had to reboot in order to get proper operation again.
Looking at the diagnostic log, I am no longer rebooting in background anymore but there are pages and pages (About 200 pages) of: "TSI section filter: error caching buffer - dropping:S_errno_EAGAIN hal_db_filter_mgr_neptune.cpp:error - saving TSI data" (no timestamp) error messages. I know this error was causing the neptune task to get suspended in the previous release ... may be related to this and other problems being reported.
add me to this list for the same problem: pvr list, guide, options, anything and everything goes to black except for video, which plants itself upper left.
Exit will bring video back to full screen, but no guide features work, and pressing any button relevant to bringing up a text screen results in top-left video, all black everywhere else.
I received 4.06 almost the day it was released, but this problem just appeared in the last two days, which is odd, since the update was a month ago?
The ONLY way to repair is to hard-reset with front button, but usually after accessing just ONE program from the PVR list, the problem is back again.
Here's some info that may help:
Until a couple of days ago, I hadn't set-up the guide to hide channels, nor had I set-up a password to lock-out channels I don't subscribe to.
Once I did that, the problems started appearing.
PVR usage is close to 70%
has anyone ever seen a Tivo work? 10 year old technology - rock solid. Cmon Shaw - get it together, and get it together fast. Netflix is here, soon to be followed by Amazon.ca video on demand, etc, etc.
A DVR that is this trouble-laden at this point of the game, ESPECIALLY one for $400!!!! is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE.
