My unit does not have the "full" EPG described in the online manual and shown in the screenshot in the first post in this thread (by Symbios). Menu -> Apps shows only "Simple Guide", and the "short" EPG does not have any menu (the only key it responds to is EXIT). The full EPG is also missing from my manual.
A number of other features seem to be disabled or reduced. There is less available with INFO. There is no AUTO option for aspect ratio...
Is there a serial number on the outside of the cardboard box that might be different between the two versions. Or is the outside of the cardboard box itself somehow different (color, print type, etc) than the box that Symbios has ?
These would be the things to look for since one usually can't power-up the CECB's in the stores to see the "software version".
P.S. ProfQuill, do you know if the Dollar Tree or other remote has a code for this box ?
