Paul, don't get so excited.
There were/are a lot of problems with that version and that's why no one else has deployed it. There may have been some fixes for Cablevision, but all other cableco's are waiting for OS 1.5 and don't want to inflict their customers with lost recordings, etc., just to get a faster FF and Start From Beginning option.
If you look back through this thread (maybe serch for 1.88), you will see that all was/in not well with the 1.88.x.x series software. Also, you'll see several of my posts in this thread where I haven't run into a lot of problems that others have. That doesn' mean they don't exist, it just means I use my unit differently or my IPG is more stable, etc. The fact that Remy is happy now simply means he may not have the same experience as others, though it seems to me he originally posted about some of the problems way back when.
Also, I believe Cablevision was the beta-test site for this version, so there is no telling when it was made available to other cableco's, if at all.
