According to DSL Reports, Someone got a new Navigator Update recently: (New York Area)

My Samsung smt-h3090 got a update the other day : V7.1.2.1

I have to say this update is one of the best updates they have come out with.A lot of stuff has been changed:

1.) One is when u record instead of a red bar on the whole show it only shows dots now next to the show.
2.) The unit is better at knowing when a show is going to start if say NFL or a BASEBALL game is going over it time shifts the program now.

I tested this with Big Brother for my wife last night. It worked and it did not work.
Yes the Big Brother was started after 60 min was over but Big Brother ran over 20 mins in to the next program and the dvr did not know this so i was lucky and recorded the next show after big brother because we knew it was going to happened like that.

3.) Overall the new update is a lot faster on the Samsung box
4.) Not that many times I'm rebooting the box because of freezing or what not.

People might like the Samsung boxes but i have had most off of them and they all have problems like getting stuck after a bit of beening on, if you have the DVR on for 2 months then it starts acting slow. this can be 1 day to 2 months it all depends on the how the DVR is feeling.
I cleaned it up for grammar and punctuation a little bit.

Per the TWC web site they haven't bought the 4742HDC, only the 4640HDC and 4642HDC . The last time I checked the Energy Star web site, cable STBs still consumed a ridiculous amount of power in 'power save' mode. It matters here in the Nanny State where enviros have 'influenced' our legislature and PUC for higher electricity rates to 'encourage' lower use.

That's weird my sig says: "Samsung SMT-H3272 - Nav. v7.0.9.2" and it was that version when I looked when I checked when I made my sig... Now it says (v2147) Boot ROM v1.09 build date Dec. 2013.

I know it was at one point.. weird.

I cannot6 tell what version ODN because it runs off the screen in diag screen.

Samsung SMT-H3272 - Nav. v7.0.9.2
SA 8300HD (no C) *AZiO ENC311SU41* eSATA- WD black- 1TB - it works!-
-8300HD no more because TWC deliberately made it unusable in my area! :-/ :-(
