Latest update for this puppy is from Feb 2005. Nothing new since. Here's what the FAQ is about the upgrade.
Your new iCEBOX includes the following additional features and enhancements:
Remote Desktop Mode
Your iCEBOX can connect to any other PC in your home that is running Microsoft Windows XP Professional (tm) and through this connection, your iCEBOX can run any application on your PC as if you were sitting in front of the computer. We call this feature "Remote Desktop" because it allows you to use the keyboard, remote, and touchscreen attached to your iCEBOX to remotely control your home computer. With this powerful new feature you can run any application directly from your iCEBOX. You can run Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, Outlook, or PowerPoint. You can also run custom software previously available only for PC's such as home control or automation software. The possibilities are endless. .
Audio in Internet and My Kitchen modes
Your iCEBOX now supports playing audio in Internet, My Kitchen, and Remote Desktop modes. Whenever you switch to one of these modes, the iCEBOX leaves the audio source unchanged. We call this feature“Follow-audio” because it allows you to hear audio from the prior mode when in My Kitchen, Internet , or Remote Desktop mode.
Jump directly to any DVD title
We now have the capability to jump to a specific title on a DVD disc by typing a number using a keyboard or remote. You can use this feature to skip unwanted introductions, to jump ahead in a DVD without using the menus, or to skip past looping DVD content. The player will then attempt to jump to the title corresponding to that track number. If the operation is not allowed a message will display. If the track does not exist, a message will display.
Internet mode keyclick volume control
Added the ability to control the volume of the keyboard clicks when in Internet mode (and not using audio from another mode). Can be set to loud (default), soft, or off.
Beyond Smart Appliance Coffee Maker support
Added the ability to control the Beyond Smart Appliance Coffee Maker. Using the My Kitchen mode, you can add a coffee maker, and then get status, brew now, and set weekly brewing schedules.
My Kitchen mode available only for compatible iCEBOX units
In order to use the iCEBOX as a controller for the Beyond Smart Appliances, the iCEBOX must have a SANI module. If your iCEBOX does not have the required hardware, we now disable this mode so that you are not presented with an option that is not available to you.
Support for French and Spanish language
You can now choose which language you want your iCEBOX to use. Spanish, French, and English are included with this software release.
Can change channel order for European television
Televisions sold into European markets support the ability to rearrange the order of the stations to place them into a standard order. The iCEBOX now supports this feature for European models. In addition to the ability to add or remove stations from your list of favorites, you can adjust a station upward or downward in the list. On these units when you press a numeric key to change stations, the number applies to the station order number and not the actual station number.
