It also removes the "nag" screen when there are no IR codes captured and a pop-up "Disk Full" notification added.
Even if you are a D* user it is a good idea to use the v1.4. Eventhough we haven't seen any corrupt data passed from D* yet, there is always the possibility, and this version offers increased tolerance.
The R5000-HD is really cool. Still messing with it and I'll post a review and my workflow methods when I get into it more.
Stupido question #1 : is the PVR application purely to manage the scheduling of programs??
Yes. Unless you need to change some settings in the recorder, you can pretty much work with the PVR exclusively since it will automatically launch the recorder when it is time to make a recording.
Feature Request : It would be "nice" if the Rec and Stop button on the remote caused the R5000 DVR app to record and stop. So far, it appears that it only works if a recording is scheduled and the unit sends out the info. I imagine I can work around this with girder and that the feature might be unique to my situation, and thus, not overly useful to the rest of the world.
Is there a way to get zap2it to show PPV programming? I noticed both it and TitanTV were not listing most of the PPV schedules.
Currently the only way the STB can control the recorder is via the VCR/timer control. Yours is an interesting idea, though.
AFAIK zap2it & Titan don't show PPV...Thanks for the comments.
