    As soon as they start recording, they show up in your NPL in a special folder. You can then access it and see how much of it has downloaded (if it's still in progress).

    That might be a blue light thing. My Powerline Ethernet adapters have a blue light and they're much, much brighter than the green lights on the same box. It's almost time for some duct tape over those puppies.

    My new MIMO Netgear router has a circle of blue lights on TOP of it. Had to put electrical tape over it. The light show on the ceiling was a bit too "disco".

    You can disable the LEDs. I've had mine turned off since day one... the old-school red recording LEDs looked out of place next to the sleek OLED display of the program name.

    The red LED tells me that it's recording when it's in standby while th eBlue LED tells me its downloading. Without those LEDs I have no idea if the box is recording or not without taking it out of standby.

    It's a long thread, but there is some stellar Mac development going on. Check this out, with screenshots of the PrefPane:

    When/once/if the Series 3 gets MRV going on, in whatever shape/form (even if certain recordings are restricted from being transferred) I imagine this little homebrew will be getting the most use from me.

    Over a week now, things are going great. My folders were gone in the NPL today, one quick press of "2"and it was all good. Very happy now. I just want my current functionality for 3 years, since I transferred the lifetime...

    Hope they get this fixed in a reasonable amount of time. It would make things much better.

    I take it the ver. 8.1.1-01-2-648 is the latest update, correct? Is there anywhere I could look that shows it's the Winter 2006 update? The only reason I ask is because the version number is not mentioned in the original post and I hate asking what is probably a stupid question in the first place ;-)

    The only stupid question is the one not asked. You are correct, that is the latest update.

    Yes, please! That would be excellent information!

    On my routers, phone, and HD DVD Player (!), I use:

    If you cut carefully, it doesn't look too bad.

    Heh. I used black photographer's masking tape on my DirecTV HR20.
    That thing was flashier than the Vegas Strip :)

    any time line on being able to transfer programs from my Series 3 to my computer over my Network? I was led to believe that this was possible when I purched the Series 3, since it was possible on the Series 2.
    Thanks

    :rolleyes: Not this again.

    Let me guess, you were "led to believe" it because you assumed it could based on the S2...
