Just my two cents worth...I bought my SAT-HD100 from Crutchfield about 2 weeks ago because no dealer in the Washington, DC suburbs had them in stock plus they had 3-6 week waiting lists. While I have not checked the unit to see what patches were applied to the unit prior to me getting it (it was manufactured in May of this year) or were downloaded to it via DirecTV it has worked flawlessly. Admittedly, given the short period of time that I have had it I may not have had an opportunity to explore every function. However, at this point I would recommend it without qualification.
