Well, the STB rebooting started about 2:45AM and I went to bed after the second timed reboot.
Woke up this AM with ODN version 5.2.0_9 on my non-DVR
4250HDC - the famous 'black guide'.
It seems to be both a maintenance and a feature upgrade release.
It does seem more stable and slightly faster; the previous version would 'run away' about twice a day when scrolling in the guide. To this IT guy, that looked like a bad memory leak or other total SQA failure. This version, So far so good.
The only new feature I've noticed is the return of Favorites Only functionality - I can exclude Hundreds of non-favorite channels from the guide - HOORAY!
I don't know if the 'multiple favorites lists' feature (per TWC website ) exists for non-DVR boxes - will investigate.@warren193
- even though I'm not a DVR customer, I feel your pain. TWC [huge air quote] customer service
[/huge air quote] is Totally Useless due to their lack of BASIC training and poor scripts. They could learn something if they read the User Manual for Navigator --- OOPS
--- THERE ISN'T ONE! ... (AFAIK) ... With the world's human overpopulation, you would think that their sorry excuse for HR could screen for a higher level of technical aptitude and communication skill.
As a previous poster observed, TWC can't move functionality back to the headend (cloud) fast enough. They are hopelessly behind on deploying STBs with faster CPUs, more memory and Lower 24/7 power consumption. WRT to the latter feature, on most boxes (like mine) the Power Save function is an Lie.
