Thread: New ShawDirect Software for 6xx series

  1. #1

    New ShawDirect Software for 6xx series

    From an online Chat Here are the changes

    Notification tweaks
    Free Preview display changes
    On-screen keyboard enhancements
    Tuner customizations for HDPVR 630 users

    Reorganized Preferences Menu
    The Preferences Menu has been reorganized and new headers have been added to further break down the customizations that can be made. Any previously customized preferences may have moved locations, but the setting will stay the same.

    Notification Display
    Based on customer feedback, 50.25 allows users to choose what types of on-screen notifications are displayed, based on three different levels. Note, most alerts such as dual recordings, auto-tune and reminders are not affected and will always be displayed.

    Alert Advance Notice
    Users can adjust the amount of time before an on-screen Alert (such as dual recordings or auto-tunes) appears – from as little as 30 seconds, up to 5 minutes. The default value is 2 minutes.

    Free Preview Display
    Channels that are on Free Preview now have gold channel numbers and a gold treatment around the Channel Cell in the Guide. When you tune to a channel on Free Preview, a new banner will appear indicating the Free Preview status.

    On-Screen Keyboard
    We have introduced an easier way to input letters into on-screen keyboards (Keyword Search or User Name entry), with alphabetical entry using the number pad on the remote. For example, press 2 three times to get to the letter C, followed by ENTER.
    We also have new shortcuts for Delete (RWD), Space (FF) and Clear (SKIP BACK).

    Release Notes
    We have added “Release Notes” to the Status Menu Bar so that users can see what has changed in a particular software release, after they’ve dismissed the initial Welcome Screen. This has been added as direct result of customer feedback.
    Live simply so others can simply live.

    I wonder if the software update is why my PVR kept freezing since jan 10th the software finnaly downloaded and now the PVR is working?

    I doubt it. I found the proceeding release quite stable. And by reports people are saying their receivers seem more responsive to button presses. I like that the stop and start recording messages can be suppressed.

    I also find that the remote is much more snappier and responsive with this new version.
    the interface also seems faster and it seems that they fixed the recordings starting late (sometimes several minutes late).

    Overall a good update.

    The networks are being a pain by starting and ending shows one minute after the hour and this creates a few conflicts and missed recordings because of that.
    I hope Shaw finds a solution to overcome this in their next release.
