Another OTA upgrade came through today on my Homecast HT3000. Upgrading from 1.02.07A to 1.03.3A. This all went through fine and rebooted fine. Here's hoping that it fixes some/any of the freezing/lockup problems we continually have with this ..... (lovely piece of equipment) ....

My question...
The DTV Solutions website lists a firmware version of 1.03.3B (http://www.dtvs.co.nz/forum/index.php?topic=54.msg137#msg137)

Whats the diff between A and B?
Should I go to the trouble of squirting B into the STB if its successfully OTA'd version A?

Hi,

'B' release is what we use for testing. 'A' release is production software. They are both the same so there is no need to worry about if you don't have the 'B' release.

Any luck with the freezing/lockup problems yet? Bond and Bond have a good deal going at the moment on these boxes so would be interested to know if the firmware upgrade has made much of a difference.

cheers
Hayden

I haven't had any lockups/freezes since the upgrade...
so fingers crossed they have ironed out the kinks in this version
However prior to the upgrade the freezes we're not the regular anyway, around 1 every two weeks if that so not much of an issue but still a pain in the rear having to power down (at the wall) to get it going again. There are a lot of posts on geekzone regarding HT3000 HD reciever issues - have a search. I've also been told that Strong or Zinwell brand are the way to go for STB's but not sure whats in the market for HD - I'm sticking with my Homecast...

Thanks for the reply wayno :) Once every couple of weeks doesn't sound too bad anyway.
