Things look like they keep improving. Playback keeps getting better. Still not as good as playback on the HR unit, but each new release seems to improve the network playback.

having hdmi signal dropouts when changing from one channel to another and when fast forwarding or rewinding in MRV.this has been the case with the last 2 CE's.Also the MRV list doesn't always refresh correctly.

I couldn't get my HD-21 to force a download last night. I'm guessing the reason being that it's out in shop and I don't have a phone connection.

Got another AM21 to attach to my h23-600. Reset and setup went smoothly. Only thing I've noticed is that the power light on the AM21 stays lit when I power down the h23. Only other complaint is a couple of times when changing channels rapidly, I've lost audio & video. No error messages or anything, just a gray screen. A reset brings everything back. Software rev is 042CE.

Been playing with it a bit more. I still find issues about which channels is the source of the data. Certain playback channels are very clean with few issues. Others are very choppy and hard to watch.
