just read through the titles and threads on this forum to get a feel for the iPronto's impact so far:

Locking up
i-Paperweight
software sucks
EPG fails
$1200 piece of ...
can't get wireless to connect
i-poopo
i-sucko

and then there is a thread: post your icf: how can we do that with no emulator and unuseable software?

it is a shame such a revolutionary product has such a poor start

rant off

I had so many problems with this pos the first 2 weeks, even with FW and SW upgrades, that I just threw in the towel and returned it for a refund via a 15 day return policy.
I am generally an early adopter but I have never come across such a faulty, unreliable, clearly alpha level piece of hardware such as this released to the general marketplace.
If you are as frustrated as I, just return it if you have the opportunity. If not, well, I feel sorry for you. It may be something worthwhile in a year or two, but definitely it is something to stay away from at this point.

With Microsoft involved you're surprised why...
