Here is an easy couple to test in the new firmware, if someone with it wouldn't mind checking:
Start playing back a recording. Pause it. Press "menu", look at the menu screen for a second then press "exit". Press "play". Does it start playing or open the menu again?
View recordings by "Program Name" and "Episodes". Navigate to a series where you need to delete something. So you have for example "NCIS" and "5 Episodes". Press OK to open the list and select one to delete and delete it. Press "Go Back" - How many episodes does it now say you have? 5 or 4? Also, of secondary interest, did you have to wait more than 10 seconds for it to actually delete your episode before you could do anything else?
I have read that the skip forward still rewinds on the first push, but what about when you are near the end of a recording and you just want to skip to the end to bring up the menu? Does it not let you skip forward when you have less than 30 seconds left like the 0.13 firmware?
I'm not targeted yet...but if these simple and obvious bugs are not fixed I will be less than happy.
I'm hoping that the new firmware gives me some reason to change my mind about this hardware. As it stands now I am convinced that it is "substantially different than described at the time of purchase", is "unfit for the purpose for which it was intended", and "is of substantially poorer quality than comparable goods commonly sold in the marketplace". The TOS tries to scare anyone away from attempting to enforce any implied warranty with regards to merchantability but you can not waive this right in many provinces, including mine. I figure 2 years is enough time to give the merchant a chance to repair his products that I have paid over $1,500 for?
