Hugh: Go to menu 8-2 (Preferences-Favourites) You can go back to the other way of changing the Guide type.New functionality in the 9242 that I hate is that pressing Guide multiple times does not switch the guide to the next favourite. Instead it brings up a dialog box that forces you to then select the Guide you want.
I hate it.
Anyone know if you can switch back to the old behaviour?
Yes, we started doing that. Still, doesn't help when you're trying to access a prerecorded show in your PVR list.An idea from another thread is to press play as your last command as the 9242 seems to keep repeating whatever the last command was, if it repeats play while watching nothing will happen. Still need to be careful when navigating the menus but at least you can watch programs with relatively no issues.
Same issue here started about a week ago. Only solution I've found is to cover the IR reciever on it which means I can use the Harmony or the Slingbox repeater.One of our two 9242's is doing the same thing. Started jumping around like crazy. Turned it off and the power kept cycling on and off. Tried a hard reset on it. Seems a little better but is still doing a few random jumps.
What started out promising seems to be a bit of a buggy update now.
That's not going to happen. According to the agreement everyone signs when subscribing, Bell can do what they want with the firmware. I've seen much, much worse than this and nothing ever happened. If you call Bell, they might give you a month's programming credit on your bill. It sounds like they are trying to fix this ASAP, I've seen worse firmware than this go out with no fix for almost a year.Bell will be held responsible for any damage to receivers from an update they send.
As mentioned, turn off any automatic settings. These go by different names on each TV but can usually be found under the video menu. Then set the video mode to "Movie" for all inputs. That's a very basic initial setup for new TVs.Now I'm left trying to figure out what settings work best on a Bravia KDL-52W4100 series
Thanks to everybody who has shared their comments about the remote control issue.Yeah, the firmware changed the sensitivity to IR. It seems to be affecting mostly people with LCD TVs and mostly people who have left the LCD in default picture modes, high backlight levels, etc. These are items that should be changed when you get the TV home, but probably 90+% of people don't do. I believe it's easy to test if you unplug/turn off the TV and the lights on the PVR return to normal. (too bad the PVR has no "display" on the device itself.)
The people who are actually discussing the "features" of the new firmware in this thread (and not the IR problem) are likely people who don't have LCDs, or have set them up properly.
I have a 32" Sharp. LC-32DA5UOf those that are seeing this issue, is anybody not using Sony?
