The developers are working hard on firmware but I must admit when I scan the change log some of the changes are pretty left field and likely to benefit a smaller group of people than a AAC-HE audio fix.

Oh well - I suspect TVNZ might start broadcasting DD audio like TV3 well before the PCH can handle AAC audio :(

I don't think this firmware release was a proper one, but rather a bug fix release.  But yes It is frustrating, and is stopping me from replacing a PVR-150 card with a Nova-T 500.

I read that too - About this release being a Bug fix release and not a normal full firmware .

The beta changelogs were definately a lot smaller.

But sigh yes - Fingers crossed for TVNZ to pick their game up - Tui ad!!

I wasn't going to put this on a public forum, but what the heck. I have and I have encouraged friends of mine to write to the Minister of Broadcasting asking him to investigate TVNZ's lamentable performance in the area of deploying HD Television. TV3 received no public funding yet they are broadcasting more HD content and in DD 5.1 than TVNZ in total who received a significant amount of taxpayer's funds.

Perhaps all of us should do so - at least to create an awareness and have the complaint not just a voice in the wilderness!

I imagine the money went on the two extra channels they're broadcasting...  6 & 7.
