Pro Model, Software Updates, Wifi
Hey Backers, we wanted to give you an update on the latest developments.
Production on the Pro is coming along. We have had a setback in production and it has pushed us back two weeks. We are not thrilled about the delay but it was needed. A small amount of backers (less than 2%) of the original model have had an issue with the usb port on the remote not being secured properly. We addressed the issue and are waiting for the new mold of the remotes interior case. The new case has been designed to hold the usb port in better.
Beta software updates are available at beta.equiso.com. We will be releasing a new beta in the coming days that will address the force close, lag, load times of applications, beta drivers for six axis use in games and wifi performance. As always, we look to our backers to give us feedback of the beta firmware updates.
Some have reported issues with wifi signal integrity, range and bandwidth. In our test environments we have not been able to replicate the issues that some have reported. To help us find the problem we are working with Realtek the wifi chipset provider to improve wifi performance. We have sent them the Equiso Smart TV and they are testing it in their lab. Their testing facility is meant to put wifi in the most extreme conditions and find where the problems are occurring. They will continue to work with us until the Equiso Smart TV has received high marks in their testing environment.
Thanks everyone for your support and we will continue to work hard to provide a great experience for our backers.
