I've visited their support site and the last firmware release is from 06/08/12 (22.214.171.124) which is still in beta,
with all the problems I'm reading I would hope there would be continueing firmware updates to correct these issues.
Could I get some advise from current owners of this product (would you recommend it at this point).
I have also looked at KDLINKS HD 700(built in Wifi and BD menu support)
but I favor this product because it can support an internal HDD.
Amazon purchases were never eligible for the MIR any way.
Depends on your usage, I don't use 126.96.36.199 any way, just stick for with SO R22, which has more bells and whistles than 188.8.131.52
Presentation will be lacking in comparison with something like XBMC (you can make it look good, but not as good).
UPnP is problematic with some servers (where order is messed up, and you click on a title but the title next to it gets played).
Not optimized for audio access (supports m3u lists but missing features like playlist creation from the interface, or a proper audio jukebox).
Available movie jukeboxes are not optimized for TV shows.
Still a good option to consider as an HD-Audio bitstreaming capable device compatible with most of the manistream encoding profiles.
Might want to go through amazon for no question asked returns if you don't like it.
