I agree that if it worked properly on the HDR-FOX before it could/ should still now. I have seen a couple of posts regarding the HDR-2000T stating that the EPG is quick and mentioning memory/ processor etc. Your response, explaining why this is not the reason, suggests that the EPG bug is not in the HDR-2000T software. I hope that when a 2000T update is finally issued that the software developers have not introduced it!I never believe any of this stuff...
The HDR's processor was fast enough before the change of firmware version, so why isn't it now? The memory issue is cobblers, because it is quite easy with the CF to see that it doesn't use all of what it has for standard operation. Anyway, as supplied it isn't a virtual memory OS setup - you either have enough and the box works, or you don't and it crashes. Speed isn't affected. Most of us on the CF have swap files now and the EPG is still just as slow, which proves it was never anything to do with that.
The basic fact is that they've screwed up whatever algorithms they had before for making this work correctly, and the beta tester(s) didn't do their job(s) properly and detect it.
Presumably this comment is based on insider knowledge. Looks like a straightforward beta testing failure then.The epg bug was just simply not noticed.
s/when/if/I hope that when a 2000T update is finally issued that the software developers have not introduced it!
The trouble is, it's the secrecy, the information hiding and the "I know something you don't know but I'm not going to tell you or justify it" attitude of certain people and companies that causes all the speculation and slanging matches and then the bad feeling.
So release ACCURATE information ONLY through an official announcement channel and do not engage in any kind of hinting or reacting to speculation in public forums (in the wider sense). It's the drip-feed from posters who appear to have inside knowledge who then back off because they are worried about saying too much that is the problem.There can be many sensitive reasons why information is not forthcoming from companies like this. Maybe they don't want to embarrass another company that caused them an issue for example because they work together on other projects.
Maybe the information would give away some technology secrets.
Maybe other companies copy them so they don't want to make it easy.
To confirm then, your statement "The epg bug was just simply not noticed" is not based on insider knowledge but was just speculation based on your "common sense"?@BH Views expressed are entirely my own and are not connected or endorsed by Humax in any way. I do not work for Humax, nor do I have any communication with anyone from Humax.
I just use common sense.
You make it sounds as if you have no experience on this topic or you have a load of secrets that you are not telling us.If you have a secret, the best way of keeping it a secret is not to let on you even have it.
Looks like BH has you beat. Just a minuscule bit of secret info is not enough.I am privy to a minuscule bit of secret info
On the other hand, announcing that there is no intention of releasing an update for the HD-FOX that will keep iPlayer available would likely drive sales in another direction.
If there is a picture with the sound then it aint radio, it's TV. Call it multimedia, DAB FM, AM whatever. Why on earth would I want to turn on my 200" plasma TV to listen to the radio?
