Has this been fixed in this latest 3.4.4 update?
Yes, Perian is included in the 3.4.3 and later versions.
yes, but it is only perian 1.1.2 and somewhere it the forums here I read it was because of a nito bug that the aTV wasn’t updating to 1.1.3. So again I ask has this been fixed? Or are you not aware that perian is at 1.1.3?
Perian 1.1.3 is automatically installed with the aTV Flash. There is no need to install it via nitoTV, as nitoTV still only recognizes 1.1.2 as the latest version. This should be fixed with the next nito version.
