Special thanks to the person that helped me bring you this info.
Unfortunately his true identity can not be known so he can continue to help in
the never ending battle of knowing what the hell webtv is up to. We will call
him the "Bule Avenger".

For those of you who have
not yet received the latest client upgrade, you will be receiving it later
today. Not everybody will get this upgrade. This is the bug fix release for
Derby users and is called Client 2.2.6. If your spell check is already active,
you will not receive this upgrade.
I also want to thank all of you for
your hard work during this crazy trial. We got some great feedback! We are short
staffed and will try hard to keep up with updates to the homepage and post more
often in the newsgroups. Thanks, Charlie

NOTE:This seems to be the
same as whats going on in the yellow group also for March of 99.
2.2.6 is primarily a bug fix release for Derby users. You will notice when you
get the upgrade, that the Spellchecker is back! Please test away, but try to
focus primarily on the bug fixes we've listed below... Bug fixes Audio email -
There are several things we're testing with the audio email feature.
First, you should no longer crash when adding a recording to your email
OR previewing an audio recording before sending an email. To test this try to
attach an audio file to an outgoing email. Before sending the email, click on
the audio link. If you crash, or anything else funky happens, please file a
Second, we are investigating the causes of the 13 second
audio email bug. If you are one of those lucky few who was getting only 13

has returned to 30 seconds. Try adding background music - particularly classical
- and going to sites with a lot of graaphics. Then try to add an audio attachment
to your email. If you get the magic 13 second bug, file a problem report.
Third, any other problems with audio email should be reported in full
detail (especially if you are seeing anything other than a 30 second record
Explain error bug - Try the following: Unplug your unit from the
power source. When you re-plug and power on, the screen will give you three
options: Same Number, Moved, Explain. Select Explain. From the explain screen,
select "Moved". The box should then dial toll free. If your box dials directly
into your access number, file a problem report.
Whoomp, whoomp, whoomp
bug!- This infamous bug should be fixed. For those of you who haven't had the
pleasure of experiencing this bug, it consisted of receiving the error message,
"The publisher of that page kept you waiting for more than a minute",
accompanied by a lovely "whoomp, whoomp, whoomp" noise. Any instances of this
bug should be reported in a file report.
Channel settings tossed when
box is unplugged - Unplug your box. Plug back in and power on. Click on "Moved".
Note your channel settings (and perhaps make them unique by adding or removing a
few channels). Connect to the service. Switch back to TV world and click on "TV
Listings" to get listings. (You will need to re-retrieve the TV listings after
selecting "moved"). Channel settings should be retained. Thanks for your
