I checked the software version, and I have that updated one you listed.
Yesterday some channels turned from off to on randomly, but today they are ok. Of course there is no way of knowing if my software was updated, so we'll see.
I also pulled guide data for a second straight day, now have 1, 2, 7, 8.
Last night I had scheduled to record US Open highlights because they were in HD. Today when I looked though, I had a couple minutes of Letterman in HD, and then US Open highlights in SD. That's odd because I didn't even know letterman was broadcasting in HD, and in the listings he isn't listed that way. Guess it takes them a bit to catch up.
Still impressed with this box.
Oh, and I love the S-Control with my sony tv. The DVR sits way low to the ground out of IR sight, so being able to use the tv's line of sight is great!
