My 9200T still has the original firmware that was installed when I received it, which is 1.00.15 and getting quite old and could make it prone to problems. I have not done any updates because I need to have the whole recordings with nothing missing, I have used padding to allow recording of more than the TV programme. I was under the impression that newer firmwares with series link could affect this in a negative way. PGXTF 1.00.21 did resolve issues with consecutive recordings in chase play and and I don't want this to affect the way I use the 9200T because I do sometimes transfer recordings while recording and consecutive records or overlaps are sometimes done. I am not sure from the firmware notes whether this would be a problem. - Resolved consecutive recording function while using ChasePlay - Resolved Schedules staying in the list when using Auto-Padding A repeat of 1.00.23 is due in the coming week and I am wondering whether I should update or not to avoid any issues. Having it retain the EPG in standby would be nice because of how slowly it updates. Can anyone tell me what effect on padded recordings updating would produce? Having my Hummy are reliable as it can be and avoiding lock ups would be an improvement, I'm not really interested in Series link or anything like that that became available with newer firmwares. The EPG improvement done in 1.00.23 would be of benefit.
