Re: [STB] Cisco thinking of getting out of the set-top box busin The main problem that I had with the S25 guide was that it would truncate recordings under certain conditions. See the Patch link in my signature for more information. Comcast had to stop development on adding features to the guide and instead send out a patch to fix this major issue and 2 minor issues. The patch fixed the truncated recordings issue and improved the other 2 minor issues. This has delayed future guide releases by at least a half a year and it could end up being even longer.

I've got my own feelings about S25. I'm going to try and keep my mouth shut regarding my opinions on it's readiness and/or the way it was/is being handled.
