OK, to quash any speculation regarding DLNA; it will "NEVER" be activated with Shaw, or so I'm told.
And now to get us back on thread topic; I got to see some of the 'improvments' in the 'new code' being tested and while it's always nice to have things 'work as they should', there is little of substance in the update. They have added some 'artwork' to go with the program descriptions and there is more 'metadata' in the info section too. The other 'improvements' are things that should have worked properly from the beginning, like smooth FFWD and REW, etc.
Still no 'date and time' recording option. I am still waiting for that one as I need it to capture Nascar races that get rain delayed, sometimes as long as past midnight. I can't just set EVERY program after the scheduled finish as that is just too much of a pain to watch later when they do run long.
Now, one thing I did find interesting is that Shaw is also apparently testing some new Gateway hardware. I don't know what that means for all of us current owners but I'm sure it won't be good.
If you can then do rather than not. You're your own worst enemy. They're parking their car over there.
