I just checked my 9242 and it is at firmware version V184. It has acquired an IP address from my router.
I'm not seeing any problems with the remote, but I have a Panny plasma (V10) with the auto brightness feature disabled.
The 'nickname' feature works for me, but it's very tedious using the numeric keypad on the remote control to enter it.
I'm not using an external hard drive, so I can't comment on that.
On the Diagnostics / Connection screen, it now displays the connection for phone and broadband. In my case, it shows phone connection failure (no landline) but OK for the broadband connection. I tried the Call Out feature, and it succeeded using the broadband connection.
So far so good - no weird behavior or reboots.
