To update or not update, that is the question.

Thumbs up 4hr rec time

This improvement so far is the best for me. It will make pausing the show while it's recording alot more workable, not bumping into the end of the segment then having to go back later to catch the last minutes

For the Mac users..

http://home.gwi.net/~droobie/s50fw141.zip

Unzip the contents right into the S50 directly, eject the S50 and life is good. Turn the unit back on manually if it doesn't turn on automatically.

I'm glad one is out. But the risk is not worth what the new update is offering. I hope it does help some though.

Hey DAB,
Was this a joke to show that it didn't update correctly? or was this screen shot prior to your update?

I just got a s50 on Friday. It came with 1.2.0. Is there a place that lists all the improvements since this version? Should one definately update? I have read some complaints here and some desired to go back to old versions.

Also... does one loose saved songs with upgrading the software?

Thanks!

Ken

If this solves the "No Signal" or "Antenna Not Detected" bug from th 1.3, I would update, if these new features are something you are looking for. But if people are still geting that message, keep the 1.2. I just got my replacement S50, me personally, I am NOT updating. 1.2 is working great for me. The update won't make you lose your songs.

Thanks RyanM.

I'm in the same boat on the update, I really want to see if it fixes the "antenna not detected" issue prior to moving back up again from 1.2. I couldn't get it to go away. It was very frustrating!
