Well I've just fired up box number two. The retailer decided to test the defunct box when I returned it today. I stood there in trepidation thinking knowing my luck it will boot up after being left all night. However I needn't have worried, all you could hear was the platters thumping away, the unit just wouldn't boot. The chap said they have had a number returned but mine was one of the worst examples he had tested. I did notice the firmware version was newer than my previous unit, that version was the one before 1.00.16, whereas the new one was already .16. I have installed version 1.00.22 again.
