    Access via the ipad app may mean its "turn on time" for other netowrk port features too
    (the above isn't a complete list)

    No mention of selectable channels for wishlists (like Channels-I-Receive or by favourites)
    wishlists remain partially broken for me until that's added.

    cableforum deleted the post (and seems to be down anyway), but digitalspy got a copy first. http://forums.digitalspy.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1538474

    They're talking about 'before christmas' now.. which IMO is pretty glacial development for a 'flagship' product - but at least we're getting it.
