On my Humax 8000T it seems very dependent on the channel I'm watching - for example if I want to look at something in 7 days time and that data is currently absent then I'll have to switch to a channel on that MUX for several minutes before the data is uploaded. On the other hand, my Sony (recent problems notwithstanding) seems to keep the full set of channel information at the ready - and doesn't seem to suffer from the same problems as the Humax. Is this a design issue - or am I simply coming to the wrong conclusions based on faulty observations? Also, does anyone know the most recent firmware id for the 8000T - I think Humax have forgotten that there are still many 8000t owners still out there. The 9200 has, for example, a feature to add a couple of minutes to either side of the featured time - be real nice for the 8000T to have the same.
