I think v10 is your best bet. I haven't heard of anyone with the original iview who had any problem running that. I've run v10 and v12 for months at a time each with no problem on my iview 3500.
V13 and v14 are known to disable the L/R audio outputs on older Homeworxes and iViews. (But HDMI audio still works.) v10 or v12 work, but they use the original remote layout, so if you have a newer Homeworx remote, several buttons may not function as expected.
FYI: v10 is OTA only; v12 was the first QAM-enabled version.
Newer Homeworx version numbers don't necessarily increase: the next firmware versions released were, in order, v8, v13, v14, and finally v1.
Also, after v12 Mediasonic stopped using different numbers for OTA and QAM-enabled firmware. So the QAM versions are just v8 QAM, v13 QAM, etc.
v8 uses the new remote layout. I don't think anyone has tried it on an iView or older Homeworx yet, so it's possible that it doesn't disable the L/R audio like v13 and v14 do.
