I have not yet upgraded to the .21 oe .22 versions. I have no real reason to do so. I am concerned that if I do and I have a problem, I will not be able to revert back. I do not use the browser, I do not use the EPG. My icf is about 1.2 Mbytes.

Should I upgrade just to stay current? Is there a way to revert back to a prior firmware?

I think you should stay with what you have, you will loose the 1/4 views and if your unit and network is OK, and you dont use the browser there is not much that is new.

Mine was much better in terms of the web browser. (Since then its stopped working again, unrelated to the new firmware)

It seems that there still is a small issue regarding
time shift in the EPG for UK and Russian users.
This was not caught during our beta test. We have
found the cause and are working on a quick fix,
which should be available shortly.

Unfortunately that bug only came to light when we went into BST in the UK which was *AFTER* the Beta test had finished otherwise we'd have caught it!

We all want more features, including those we
were promised in all the pre-sales blurb (like
Q-view and browser) and simple stuff like USB,
MMC, favourites etc. It just seems we've all
been forgotten and without these the user base
is likely to remain low so even less liklihood
of Philips expending any real effort to add new

I for one was *HAPPY* to see the back of Q-View ... if I want to have the top corner of four pages of different remotes showing at once then I'll define a page that does it! As it is I've been glad to see the back of a facility that I never used as I felt that the restrictions that *IT* imposed on me were not acceptable.

I think that people who expect a fully fledged web browser on the iPronto are being somewhat unreasonable too - the web browser that is there is perfectly capable of handling any of the web servers on my *INTRANET* and makes a damn good stab at most of the websites that I would want to go to from my remote (for example the local pizza place). If you want a fully fledged and all singing browser then fire up a laptop or something ... this is a remote for gods sake!

I'm glad Philips concentrated on sorting bugs rather than adding features and piling in more bugs - sure, I wish it had been stable and solid from the outset but whilst Philips are showing a commitment to the product then I'm happy to use it.

I'm glad that I have it and I have no major gripes with it!
