Either I wasn't clear, or you didn't understand what I was writing (I was rather tired when I posted last night, so it's likely that I wasn't clear), so I'll try again
. The updater presented 4 items as being available:
- Stable Hardware Version Update (7359)
- Stable Firmware Version Update (I don't recall the exact version number, but lower than the beta version)
- Beta Hardware Version Update (7287)
- Beta Firmware Version Update (188.8.131.52)
These are all intended for the InfiniTV 6 ETH. The instructions very clearly stated to select the stable versions of pooling wasn't desired or the beta versions if pooling was desired. I blithely forget about that while I was making my choices and decided to go with the highest version number on each, so I've got a mix of a stable hardware version and beta firmware version installed in the device. I'm not sure if having a mix of stable and beta installed is the source of my problem or if something else is causing the it.
The hardware and firmware versions the device shipped with were REALLY ancient, so I'd definitely recommend that anyone getting one of these follow the instructions and upgrade to either the stable (no pooling) or beta (pooling) set.
Once the problem gets resolved, I'll post an update so (hopefully) nobody else will run into the same problem. I'll have a limited window of opportunity to do anything with it tonight as I've got an important hockey game to watch (Go Bruins!)
