. The updater presented 4 items as being available:
- Stable Hardware Version Update (7359)
- Stable Firmware Version Update (I don't recall the exact version number, but lower than the beta version)
- Beta Hardware Version Update (7287)
- Beta Firmware Version Update (184.108.40.206)
These are all intended for the InfiniTV 6 ETH. The instructions very clearly stated to select the stable versions of pooling wasn't desired or the beta versions if pooling was desired. I blithely forget about that while I was making my choices and decided to go with the highest version number on each, so I've got a mix of a stable hardware version and beta firmware version installed in the device. I'm not sure if having a mix of stable and beta installed is the source of my problem or if something else is causing the it.
The hardware and firmware versions the device shipped with were REALLY ancient, so I'd definitely recommend that anyone getting one of these follow the instructions and upgrade to either the stable (no pooling) or beta (pooling) set.
Once the problem gets resolved, I'll post an update so (hopefully) nobody else will run into the same problem. I'll have a limited window of opportunity to do anything with it tonight as I've got an important hockey game to watch (Go Bruins!)
When I got home earlier, I gave the PC a good-old-fashioned shutdown, unplugged the InfiniTV 6 ETH for 30 seconds or so, plugged the InfiniTV 6 ETH back in, and powered the PC back up. I then setup 10 recordings from consecutive channels in the guide and headed off to the gym. When I returned, all 10 had completed without any apparent issues. I also had a reply from Ceton support - they suggested installing several updates / hotfixes, etc. (a few of which the PC already has), but didn't suggest the simple solution of power cycling everything... The updates and hotfixes might have some benefits, but I've been running 2 InfiniTV 4 PCIe's for many months without ANY issues, so I'm not exactly confident that a PCI driver update would have helped solve the problem I ran into

I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about
But yes go B's. I know you won't admit it but you def went to bed game 7 at 4-1 lol. I have been pleading the 5th when asked by my non-mass counterparts.
I considered shutting it off, but my normal bed time is later than that so I decided to stick with it (and I've got the phone records to prove it
). Boy am I glad I did - that was one heck of a comeback
. If it had been a regular season game, I probably would have shut it off, but not a game 7 in the playoffs. I hope the B's play more consistently in this next series as they've been driving me nuts...
