New Explora software updates

Re: New Explora software updates

Even a manual download doesn't work.

Maybe it's 'cos this particular Explora isn't on Premium anymore, could some of them be package-specific re delivery?

 

Anyone else here with Explora 1 who did / didn't get it?

It's never arrived here, still on L101. @krugie  was that maybe not on an in-field unit?

Else maybe they scrapped it?

What is the offset you had to set?

Re: New Explora software updates

Don't know if you've noticed Geoff, much of those current wider adjustments appear to be focused around Hi Band channels and their setup. On one older decoder which was rebooting constantly, for a few days I had to use an odd offset local oscillator setting to "fine-tune" it mostly back to normal.

Another thing noticed is original Hi Band test ch. 910 is back on FTA access for the related purpose.

So I'm hoping it's temporary, for that, but expect it will happen again when the future fully Hi Band HOR option is incorporated as well.

Re: New Explora software updates

We are not getting any official updates on the 4 tuner decoders. BUT, there are all sorts of things going on in the background at times.

Plenty of old bugs back. I am not even going to list them. Three of them date all the way back to 2015!

They have been working on the power cuts to the LNB problem. Seems someone has finally got thecmessage.

Now only if they will do that properly once and for all, it would be a huge step forward.

At the moment, when the authentication fiddles go on, recordings continue quite happily BUT  linear TV gets interrupted every time. Quite easy to see, because there is a complete signal cut, the buffer clears and then if you are lucky viewing continues. If not then you are forced to change channels and back to unfreeze. If that fails a reboot is required. If recordings are in progress and you want those recordings then no linear TV until the recordings are over.

3. Sometime since yesterday my maintenance reboot time appears to have been reset to the default(?) 04:31.


Possibly related - yesterday I had turned Usage Monitoring back on, and told it to then manually submit a report which it did successfully.

No other adjustments made but I had altered the reboot time once or twice yesterday morning (but not to that early time) which is not too unusual for me.
