New Software Rollout Starting Today!

Hi Kickstarters, 

Over the last few months, we've been working hard to improve the performance and stability of Simple.TV. Today, we're pleased to announce a major software update: Simple.TV version 625.

What's new?
There have been a lot of changes “under the hood” with version 625. In particular, you will see:

• Faster and more reliable live TV tuning
• More reliable scheduling and recording
• Better management of recording and deleting sequential shows
• Faster Simple.TV start-up times

How to get the new software: 

Starting today, we are going to be rolling out the software in waves to groups of users to ensure smooth field upgrades. You will get an email when your Simple.TV box has been set to accept the upgrade. The email will tell you what you need to do to update your box.

Thanks again to all of the users who beta tested this last round of fixes. It's been hugely helpful!

      As I've said elsewhere - nice work! The experience is notably improved with this update. If recording reliability improves consistent with what I'm seeing with tuning, then we'll be in dramatically better shape. I'm looking forward to continued upgrades and the iOS app.

      Look forward to the update. Hopefully, I can set my own start and stop times. If the guide says the show ends at 9:02 then I lose the ability to record for the next hour. Also, the iPad app would be nice but what about access to the recordings that was promise? Then we could download to iTunes (or whatever media software we use) and at least take the recordings with us no matter if we are iOS or Android users.

      An android tablet app would help too. Google TV app would be perfect so I can use this to watch real TV.
      Right now it is just a hobby for me.

      YES!!!!! Heres to hoping the new software makes my Simple.TV find the channels every other TV in my house can find without issue ;-)

      I am looking forward to a more stable firmware and bug fixes. New features like the iPad app are secondary to a stable system that I do not need to reboot every few days.

      It's awesome to see such great improvements. The has already gotten much better since I first received it. But when is the iPad app coming? Any news on that timeline?
