All I see there is 111R

I snagged 108R from pachinko's Hightail URL. Thanks, pachinko!

Apparently CM can't be trusted to not do Blindingly Stupid Things . Henceforth I'll make sure to save and manually install downloads, so I can revert, and not be so quick to jump on new releases.

question is will your DVR+ downgrade or accept any version, not just higher number?

I certainly hope so, or that would be an additional black mark against the product.

The external hard drive not sleeping is not acceptable behaviour. Those things are not designed to run 24x7. They'll die an early death, being run that way.

Never mind the energy waste of having the thing spinning 24 hours a day when, for example, in our case, it need be running only about 4-6 hours, at the most.

Of course that's all that is there. I was responding to the post I quoted with a dropbox link for version 111R. Why would I link to anything else?

Actually there are pros and cons with respect to hard drives running 24x7 or shutting them down. Most drives are designed for low energy use and to run 24x7. There is opinion that more damage can be done by turning drives on and off. I suspect but don't know that the DVR+ with the internal 1 TB drive runs 24X7. Also some other DVRS have their drives run 24x7.

Perhaps because the question was "Does anyone have a copy of the 108R software?"

Nevermind.
