Samsung has released a software upgrade for the BlackJack, which is highly recommended to be installed. This update includes an upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.0 and numerous enhancements/corrections. The update may take up to 10 minutes to complete if the system is already set up.

Comcast DVR’s regularly come under fire for bugs, sluggish performance etc with little information available about software updates, known issues etc.  I recently discovered the Motorola DVR/Firmware and Software wiki which reports latest available firmware, changelists, fixed and known issues with each release of hardware, firmware, and software.  A useful resource when communicating your issues with your cable operator.
