I've been running the P4 cards in both of my UTVs for a month or two, but they are only running the 3.5 software.
I beleive one of my units has bad sectors on the hard drive, because it keeps rebooting when I try to start only one of the shows recorded, but everything else about it is fine. Just that one show. Now I seriously doubt this is sabotage on the part of DTV. LOL The other box has been running the P4 card the same amount of time and is just fine. I just got the replacement under my CC service plan within 72 hours by the way.
I think I can become a test subject for this hypothesis. Read on and also see my thread here...
I was part of the beta for 3.5, but cut off my land line in favor of a cell phone, which meant I could no longer be in the beta program. Well, my phone will be back on at 7:00 tonight and my contact in the beta program said I could get the latest beta release as soon as I reactivate the two boxes with WebTV and give her the e-mail addresses associated with them.
So, here's my plan. Since I have the P4 cards, am in the beta program, and have a box that for the most part is fully functional to test with before sending back for service, I will download 3.7 to that box and let you guys know if the box completely dies. If it does, no big whoop, I can just send it in as planned, because I already have my replacement. Besides, it will be good to find out wheter what athene024
says is true or not before I download the beta to either of my two pristine boxes. I'll let you guys know as soon as I get the beta installed.
By the way, I will not answer any questions about features in the new beta.
