They are castrating the SHEF integration protocol taking methods like getPlaylist and making the private so that only their app can pull that information out of your DVR.

SHEF will be essentially worthless only duplicating what you can already do with RS232.

So I am guessing all the hard work you put into your iPad design is wasted? :[

Yes, my iPad app (currently in progress) is wasted if they limit it too much

Most of the worthwhile functions will go away in the next receiver update. There will be no functionality beyond what is already available via rs232
