....the Kick-out issue is fixed for me at least...done numerous tests yesterday and it hasn't failed once.
Apart from 4x FF-RWD, we seem to have:
The options to return to Live tv when viewing a recording.
SAP second voice channel.
4 day menu instead of 3 (new?).
Hard disk sleep at around 1:30 am
Ability to find a show in alphabetical order (using more than 1 letter) in the videotron special menu by selecting "A".
Ability to choose external front video source (not tested).
...and a negligeable bug in scrolling recorded shows with slightly un-synched columns.
