My bet is they deploy Navigator to new boxes, but leave the older less memory Passport boxes like Pioneer alone until they die out and need to be replaced, OR a customer wants some of the features talked about that would require a Navigator upgrade.
On the other hand, they could be working on ways to deploy Navigator to boxes with less memory. For instance, a safer and alternative browser to IE is Firefox, and Firefox can run on Operating Systems as old as Windows 98. I think Time Warner WANTS Navigator to be like Firefox. (But it really has been IE on Vista!) I suppose such a move to make Navigator more stable could be done, but ONLY if Time Warner hires and maintains outside engineers to do the necessary box upgrades or software downloads for an upgrade.
There is no way that Time Warner wants to have customers experience the horrors that people had with Navigator in Lincoln Nebraska. I just count my blessings each day with my Pioneer Passport box!
Have their been any service improvements in Lincoln Nebraska with TWC Navigator? When was your last software update downloaded to your boxes?
