Also wanted to say thanks to all who shared their experiences. I learned so much from reading the posts that I could not figure out from the manual that came with my early manufactured IV200. Your help was much appreciated. Thanks!
Man this receiver is awesome! One question....how long do they keep support up for these boxes before they abandon ship and jump on a new one? In other words....how long will I be able to enjoy my box before I have to upgrade?
Ok, I've been reading this thread with a lot of interest. I just won a new Visionsat IV2000 from ebay. It doesn't mention anything about being a IV2000 Plus. Was there 2 different models of these. Is there a difference? I got it with an offer of $80 w/free shipping. They had more than 10 available with a buy it now of $89.99 or make an offer.
The short answer is that you should probably update to the latest factory firmware when you get the box. After that, as long as you are happy with the function of the box and they don't release a fix for something that you need then you have no reason to update the firmware.do I really have to keep upgrading the firmware?
