Beta Program

This page here is for beta program users. Bugs, updates and compatibility matrices will be posted here.

Announcements

September 27: Units at version 9 should go to 11. Version 11 is an update from pre-launch, so don't get too excited; we just fixed a bug in update deployment that should have been fixed a while ago. A new update is in the works that has more significant functionality changes and upgrades soon.

September 29: Update system is currently being reworked again, so updates are off-line temporarily. They will be back on-line soon. At the moment if you run an update you will get a signature mismatch error.

September 29: Rework is done, updates should now be happening automatically. Current latest is 11.

Confirmed Issues

As of firmware release 11

wifi

  • There is a known issue with TKIP encryption, affecting WPA1/WPA2 TKIP-only type links. Please use TKIP+AES, or open. Using Android app 0.5.6 and later will fix this bug, but configuring using IR remote will not work.
  • There is a known issue with 128-bit WEP encryption and hex keys.

Feature Discussion

  • Feature request: make rate of scrolling configurable
  • Feature request: add PAL support to enable EU cable box compatibility

Sources

Device Fw rev Resolution Compatibility Notes
Tivo Series 3 unknown forced 720p intermittant (11) I could get NeTV into mode where it just showed black background, usually by switching video inputs on TV and coming back to the Tivo+NeTV chain. [update: this happens on occasion when switching video inputs to TivoS3, not a dominant operating issue]
PS3 CECH-2501A Version 3.56 forced 480p yes
PS3 CECH-2501A Version 3.56 forced 720p yes
PS3 CECH-2501A Version 3.56 forced 1080p no (11) NeTV does not support 1080p60
PS3 CECH-2501A Version 3.56 auto no (11) NeTV goes into self-timing mode. However if I connect the PS3 to the TV directly, there is no signal, too. I have to reboot the PS3 then can set the resolution back to manually.

Sinks

Display Resolution Compatibility Notes
Toshiba 40G300U forced 720p yes
LG FLATRON W2261VP-PF yes
VIZIO M221NV yes
LG 42LW5700TA yes
Sony Bravia 32CX520 yes This TV is very picky about the +5V input. For proper operation you must use the provided power supply and power cable, otherwise the resistive loss and/or tolerance of a typical USB power supply and cable can put you outside its accepted range.
