Do showstoppers still get software updates? I have a HS2000 and it still does not have the IR codes for the Samsung TS-160 which have been discussed in this forum.

No, Showstoppers no longer receive software updates.

You could sell your showstopper on eBay for around $300 and put that toward a 5xxx series, which does get updates.

It is possible that some of the new features require a faster processor to perform. I sure would like to keep the same UI between my 2004 and my 4320.

I would recommend selling the old unit and buying a 5000 series.


I was able to sell my upgraded Showstopper on Ebay for $440 and purchase a 5040 for $118 after rebate from Amazon.

Rocket,

While adding codes to the Panasonic, 3k and earlier series is a much more involved process, the SAMSUNG codes were recently released to the older boxes as well. They went to the 4k and later boxes first.


The IR codes don't require a software download. What software version does your Panasonic unit have?

I don't see Samsung as an option under satelite boxes.

Have you tried all the codes under "Other"?

I've been watching for Samsung T160 codes for Showstoppers to pass onto my brother in law. According to http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...80#post1754980 7110, 7110A, 7111 and 7111A are Samsung codes for newer recorders. The closest code I see under "other" is 7008. What is the correct Samsung T160 code to choose for Showstoppers?

Lyndon,


Any success if finding about the Samsung codes. I too have a Samsung TS160 and would love to be able to use my Showstopper....


It is almost a matter of life and death as I have two daughters that love Friends but usually have to miss for some reason... they have been giving me a hard time about getting this working...


Thanks,

Andy
