New Firmware Push to U-verse Receivers

Apparently, a new firmware version is being pushed out to all U-verse TV users.  According to the discussion on dslreports.com, one of the issues addressed is the infamous "blue light" issue.

@baseballisback, if Microsoft sells MR to who I heard they're selling it to, I have a bad feeling

I heard they were selling to Ericsson, the only Ericsson I know of is the cell phone manufacturer owned by Sony, and I have my issues with Sony, so if that's the case, I don't see MR going anywhere but down

Isn't AT&T well behind on the MR version anyway?

 

I kind of wish Apple did the STB operating systems but they don't play nicely with other companies.

Re: New Firmware Push to U-verse Receivers

@michail77, I agree, as a huge Apple fan myself, having an iOS (or OS X) based IPTV firmware/software would be amazing

It could open the doors for Apple TV functionality (AirPlay) or even an Apple TV as an STB (or IPTV on Macs, iDevices, or even through iTunes)

But Apple doesn't seem to be interested in the (cablesque) IPTV game

As for Apple not liking to deal with other companies, while Apple is pretty much a closed/proprietary company, they have branched out to some companies to have a larger footprint (mostly through HP), some of which include...

HP iPod
Apple printers (just rebranded HP printers)
Bell & Howell Apple II (desktop computer)
HP printers with AirPrint

Finally got the update on all boxes here in Charlotte. STB's especially peppy. Much quicker response on channel changes.

 

Love being able to key in a channel number quickly to hide channels. Even On Demand is a bit faster.

Anyone know why there's a .10 difference in the versions of the firmware?

There are some differences between the boxes (Sigma versus Broadcom, Moto vs Cisco, etc) the differentiation gives the system a way to select the correct version for the box.

What about Cisco IPN4320? I guess I'll know if my blue light is out I have the new firmware.

The upgrade for all the older boxes would be 2.2.28163.10.

Re: New Firmware Push to U-verse Receivers

How can I find out what the new features and fixes of the update are?

 

If there are truly over 150 of them, I'd like to read about what they are and what they do. Anyone have a link?

As of yesterday, my VIP 1225 and VIP 1200 both had the 2.1 version. Both run incredibly slow, although the DVR is faster than the STB.

 

Should I look in to getting a newer STB (non-DVR?) If so, what model should I ask for?

Got the update on all 4 of my boxes. Smiley Happy  I had to reboot my dvr and one of my other boxes before the blue indicator light turned off.

I would love LOVE to see an update / bug fix list.  Amen to that!
