I've never seen either of my S3's or my THD ask about a CC firmware upgrade. Also, I've never seen or heard (though I can't catch 100% of the posts) of an issue where the RS corrected/uncorrected count was high with the described glitches and a restart sent the counts to zero and corrected everything. One of those channels (HGTV HD) is not SDV (at least to my understanding) and the other (Food TV HD) is so I did not post in the TA or SDV threads. I will agree with you that maintaining these boxes (especially the S3 in the basement rec room that gets infrequent direct viewing these days) is a pain. Usually my issue is sync with the TA going wonky (won't tune channels) requiring a reboot of each. Shoot, I almost want to put all the TAs and S3/THDs on X-10 controllers and just reboot them at some "safe" time late at night 2-3 times a week... Although the other day, for the first time, I turned on the TV and it was on the "press select" dialog for a live SDV channel that had timed out and when I pressed Select, it actually requested and got the channel tuned. Maybe the gradual update are actually fixing things.
