Good bunch of fixes and improvements.   Can you say what the ICETV ones are specifically?
Regards

IceTV has just been made more robust.

There were some situations where timers were not getting appearing on the box if there was a gap in the epg before IceTV could fill in the guide data.
And the pvr was ignoring the timers.

Just another addition to the 7160 model.

It now supports TAPs. At under $500, it's now a "real" HD version of the venerable 5K series, with ethernet thrown in as well.

JustEPG runs on it nicely already and Jeff's working on UKAutoScheduler and has a beta TMS version running on it atm.

Anyone know what Quad recording is?
Maybe record 4 shows as long as you are recording 2 pairs of the same channel group??

Yes, as the unit only has two tuners. But, you can also mix teh services up over the two channels (tuners). For example you could record ABC1, ABC2, ABC3 and GO! - that's 4 services and three on one channel and one on the other, but still only a total of 2 networks (channels). Networks=channels. Each Network can have many services on the same channel.
