    Lots of people stop at a working version and don't update unless there is a major advantage. (our main PVR at home still runs GBPVR as everyone is familiar with the interface, it works extremely well and I am fearful of updating it! and my NPVR system that mirrors it still misses the odd recording from season recordings not migrating fully.).
    NPVR has a tick box to indicate updates available, but AFAIK does nothing. I vaguely seem to recall that "calling home" to check for updates was frowned upon at one time.

    I think it would clarify it for a lot of people if standard terminology was used. If sub issued official (and therefore recommended) "releases" and "patches" (though he has never issued a patch as far as I can remember it has just been install the latest full release over the top) while the ones managed in this thread (and elsewhere in individual threads on the forum) were referred to as "hot-fixes" that should only be applied if absolutely needed for that particular problem (these never trigger the "check for updates option").

    It should work (as of two release ago). If you've got that feature enabled, and I do a new release, then you should get a message box appearing to tell you the new version is available.
