Got a message on my digital box this morning that said:

In Your Area, August 12

We are upgrading the Digital TV Channel guide
in your area to provide new updates including
search function & DVR enhancements.
A brief interruption in cable service
may occur between 3 & 5 am.
I guess there updating the firmware again. We shall see how it goes.

Possibly, we shall see on Thursday morning. A28 is the only other update that is available after the A25 that we have now I think.

I had heard a rumour that A28 was coming sometime sooner rather than later, so this is probably it. Very good news if it's true.

Hopefully the DVR Upgrades mean that a DVR expander will work and we can have a larger external hard drive.

As far as I can tell it's mostly DVR upgrades. Now if you tape more than one episode of a show it'll make a folder for that show so they're all grouped together. You can delete a bunch of shows at once through DVR cleanup rather than scrolling through your list and deleting one by one. It'll remember what shows you've taped and deleted so it won't record them again if it's shown later in the guide and listed as new.

I'm sure there are other improvements that someone can fill you in on.

The last firmware upgrade to version 16.76 added the capability to add an external drive to the Motorola boxes. The port just may not be authorized yet. A friend of mine has a drive hooked up to a DCT6416 in Sudbury and he says it works great.
