Yellow HomePage (March 99)
UPGRADE NOTICE Build
There will be a new client going out this evening or tomorrow morning.
It only involves some behind the scene changes so you shouldn't notice anything
on you side. Just a heads up! Charlie Help Center Testing
We would like
your help with testing a new Help Center. It would be great if you could note
any inconsistencies or confusion in the site navigation (specifically the
sidebar). Please spend most of the time focusing on the Help Center itself and
not the search engine (Ask WebTV). We'd love to know about any confusing wording
on Questions and Answers. And Classic users should only see information for
Classic boxes and Plus only Plus boxes, so if you see something you shouldn't be
seeing, we need to know about it. Thanks, Charlie
Yellow New Fetures Area (March 99)
NOTE: This seems to be the same as whats going on in the
Blue group also for March of 99..
Client 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 problem report.
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 seconds of audio in an email attachment,
you may find that your recording time has returned to 30 seconds. Try adding
background music - particularly classical - and going to sites with a lot of
graphics. 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 time). 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.
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 testing! -Charlie
