I just noticed that the IPG version has changed to 3.01 Build number 0. 

Does anyone know what changes there are under this new build.  I haven't noticed anything yet.

Didn't you notice the 25% extra recording space? Or how about the ability to use the box and change channels as soon as TV shows on boot? ;-)

Nope sorry. lol.  Although I'm sure I will.

Any fun stuff? Other functional changes?

Oh and what is a classification of 16 VZ.  The movie on sky premier is a good example.  It is supposed to be 16 VLS

Good question. That is the rating Sky sent us.

They have been wrong for at least the last year.

For ease of reading I will post Grants answer from the community forum... regards ... Kirk.

There's three changes you will notice:  

Extra disk space


We've given you approx 25% more disc space for recording.. you'll notice your free space has increased in the planner.  

Stop/Restart of Recordings

Recordings that are stopped can now be restarted by either the banner or TV Guide. Additional parts are appended with 1, 2, 3 etc...  

Performance

Some performance increases... Updates are now done in the background.
You will notice this on boot where you can use the unit as soon as TV shows. No waiting for the 'updating.. please wait' to clear from screen.  

And other lower level bugfixes.

Edit: Formatting changes

I would like to see it made possible to be able to rewind the last channel you were watching, like if you're watching it and then switch to another channel and then switch back, you can rewind it, like TiVo does. This should be possible as it has 3 tuners

Would also hope lag gets reduced more at some time in the future

Hi

Not possible. Tuner 2 and 3 is reserved for recording. The time shift buffer is erased on channel change.

Oh what a shame,

 

 

 

Just wondering, who manufactures these boxes? is it mhp or whoever made the digital one? the remotes are very similar
