It might not be helpful, but I think purists would tell you that things should be viewed in the aspect ratio they were made in.

I'm fairly sure there were "missed recording" problems on the original firmware too - otherwise I imagine Humax would have reverted to the old version in fairly short order!

On a slight tangent to your topic, I did notice when I use the iPlayer on the Humax, it does seem to buffer the entire programme, rather than just buffering a couple of minutes ahead.

I've had a few "missed" recordings recently - ie where the programme is not recorded at all, not where a 'recording failed' message appears.
