Version 530511440 is the most recent, but if your box is an RTV55xx, that version has IVS and CA disabled, so if you want those features (and I can't imagine living without IVS now) you will need to...

I second that! I wish there was a way we could hack them a bit further so they could handle digital pictures and wide screens. In fact, ReplayTV is the main reason that I have resisted going that...

Compared to most computer related tasks, I would say it was pretty simple. Certainly a whole lot simpler than setting up WiRNS. But, to your point, if it was really so simple, would people have...

What do these words mean: "5-1/4" floppy drive" ??? :D

And more to the point, why on Earth do you still have a floppy drive?

Then you can do him a favor, because if he ever decides to fire up the 5500, it probably won't work properly because it has very out of date firmware on it. So, before he tries hooking it up, he'll...
