That might very well be the case but that's not what Roger said.
"The estimated time to launch a new firmware is always 3-4 months after the last one"
And since Paula herself said that you rebuilt your firmware from scratch every week (since you got a new SDK version once a week) I seriously doubt that it should take you 3-4 months to produce a new firmware.
new fw every week or once a week correct but since sometimes maybe 1 or 2 bugs are solved in that weekly fw you can't release that.
We test that (we have a big list with things we test known bugs audio formats video formats etc etc etc) we also sometimes find new bugs and report that back to the dev team
They process that analyze that and produce again a new internal fw and we start all over again.
And i must say for the hd2 which is the base for the hd1 gui series . it's going the way we want it.
Some really annoying bugs are resolved some not and some things are faster now.
So when this fw is finally good enough for public release it can be ported to the hd1 series and the dvr-hd series
So have some patient they want to do it right this time
And believe me we mods are volunteers but besides the moderating we also test many hours for you guys/girls so you get a good fw.
Firmware developing is a time consuming process.
And in the past they delivered many fast updates to give the newest options available.
But this also resulted in a unstable fw.
They now stick to 1 sdk version make that one stable and bugfree as much as possible.
We do the best we can
