beta firmware catch-up

Since it has been decided to use this as a generic notification topic for STX-HD100 info, rather than for just new firmware release versions, I wanted to catch up on the beta versions of the HD100 firmware that have been put out recently.

Use the remote's number pad to enter the code 2382 ('beta') on the HD100's firmware update menu in order to tell it to look for the beta version. For help about how to update the firmware, see the HD100's manual or this FAQ.

Beta firmware changes, requires SageTV server beta v6.4.2:
  • improved dvd playback
  • improved compatibility with some media files
  • a fix for fast-foward/rewind hang
  • Transport stream support
  • High resolution picture support
  • Improved empty buffer detection
  • Placeshifter mode

Changes for beta version 20080519 0, requires SageTV server beta v6.4.3:
  • Fix DVD audio dropping or out of sync (Server needs to be 6.4.3)
  • Fix playback of some h264 in mp4
  • Fix missing audio in some m2t

Changes for beta version 20080523 0, requires SageTV server beta v6.4.3: Edit - The 20080523 0 update has been removed for further testing; version 20080519 0 is now the latest version.
  • Updated drivers to latest version
  • Fixed placeshifter connection to server using names
  • Fixed mpeg audio in transport streams
  • Fix decoding of some specific H264 video streams
