Does it address the “drive self-wake up” issue?

You don’t mind if I wait carefully to see the cat out of the tree do you ? 

Like ummm who takes the first plunge…anyone ???

PS, I saw your post 19 Minutes after you posted it, without knowing you had :smileyvery-happy:

I just installed the update and I did not have any problems. The overall time for the download, install and reboot was about thirty minutes.

Finally, someone had the courage.  :smileyvery-happy:

@ Cat0w, @ RealAct,

Post your Dashboard Picture here, lemme see it. :stuck_out_tongue:

@ Bill,

In order to update, do you have to remove the USB drive first if it is connected  ?

I was thinking the same thing… and I think you better since I don’t see a fix for that… but what does Bill say?

By design, you should be able to leave the drive attached, especially since you can set the drive to autoupdate.  However, having said that, if I was doing a manual update, and there wouldn’t be an issue to safely remove the drive, then I would probably remove the drive.  But that’s just because of my experience with installing windows.  I’ve had windows wipe a drive I left attached.

@ Bill,

You said: “I’ve had windows wipe a drive I left attached.”

I am now still surprised how it is possible that Bill Gates is the richest man on earth.:smileyvery-happy: It reminds me of when he attached the first time an USB device on Windows 98 and it crashed while he was doing a presentation.

Note:  After the upgrade, check your Twonky status.

Looks like Twonky got upgraded to 7.2.6-2G  (from 2E) – and it might have a bit of an issue.

After the upgrade, the only share that Twonky was actually serving was Public, even though all of my other shares were set to ON for Media Streaming.

When I toggled the switch back & forth on one share, all the other shares started working, too.
