With no new updates since Nov 1, and the flurry of announcements about work on software for the ATV2, I can’t help but think you’ve abandoned work on continuing support for the ATV1. There are still numerous issues with that software, including DVDs not formatted properly when the ATV is set to 1080i, network streaming of media experiencing extrememly poor performance in NitoTV, especially if streaming ripped DVDs and anything over wireless, and numerous posts in the support forum dating back many months asking for bugs such as these to be fixed - and yet nothing has been done, no releases to address these issues, and no announcements of impending updates to address any of the issues.
What sort of support exactly are people paying for here? With your pricing structure geared towards number of years of updates, one would expect some sort of development to iron out reported bugs. Or do you simply package other people’s software without doing anything to address the issues that software has except to periodically update your maintenance menu to download updated releases? Are we just paying for support of a distribution and re-packaging service?
Whilst installation of extras via ATV Flash is certainly simpler than researching and doing it all yourself, everything contained in ATV Flash is freeware. I have no problem paying for a simplified installation method but to present the illusion that you support and develop the products ATV Flash contains is a little dishonest given that people buy your product under the assumption that you are working towards fixing reported bugs that aren’t part of the installation process. Products contained within the package appear to be getting updated more frequently than you publish updates for ATV Flash so are you still supporting the ATV1 or not?
