      • During firmware update 2-3 mins information can be misleading

        For a Pro HD box, firmware update process takes 4-5 mins, so during firmware update 2-3 mins information for a Pro HD box can be misleading

        • Bug: setup crashed during Internet Viewing install

          While setting up the internet viewing portion of the initial setup routine, the install crashed. Had to force IE 7 to shut down.

          Went back in and all seems fine.

          • visual: 120 dpi asset position needs to be fixed.

            the visual layout is not positioned correctly with text out of bounds in most assets.
            the page can be dpi agnostic or resolution agnostic.

                • betaremotes - setup didn't work for new remote

                  The betaremotes process may be missing something - or I am. The tutorial was very clear, and every step of the way proceeded as it should, until it arrived at the 'tell us about your device' stage. At this point, any choice form the device type options left all of the other fields greyed out, and any attempt to write in, for example the brand name of the remote, knocked the browser to the feedback forum, and out of the betaremotes setup tutorial. Nice idea though, I hope you can get it to work!

                  • Number Combinations not clear

                    When it asks for the number combination of 5, 05, 005, 0005, the intent isn't clear. If you select 005 and enter 33 it prefaces it "00" giving you 0033, but the setup should be limiting it to 3 characters, so it would be 033. I couldn't exactly figure out if that is how it works, but it seemed very unclear and when you test with the "go" option it doesn't work as expected.

                      • Betaremotes could not find my slingbox

                        I had not problem watching my slingbox online using the web setup utility - but betaremotes.slingbox.com could not find my slingbox.

                        I am trying to get the remote working for a Motorola DCX3200 - and it is not listed. Betaremotes is my only option - and it is no option.

                        I expect better....
