Thx for the topic edit.

But, why do you say "all versions"? Do you own both a 8300 AND a 8300HD?

Are you beta-testing?

This seems to conflict with what one of their people said just recently that no date was planned for the deployment. Then again, what do they know!

Hey Jean-Claude! You mentioned you live in the "Montreal area". Does this actually mean in Montreal itseft or rather the north or south shore?

Thank you for this tip. I did not get the update and followed your advice... Sure enough, as soon as I replugged the unit, the update strated to load and it lasted about 5 minutes. Now, I have all the new features at last :-)))

8300HD update

In Sherbrooke, too!
Is it my poor memory, or is there now a longer blackout pause when changing channels?
