    So, I turned my lynx on tonght, tuned to octane via wifi to listen to linkin park town hall, and stuck it in my pocket...

    An hour later,I looked at saw there was an update available...w00t!

    After booting back up, immediatly looked to see what has changed... well, right off the bat..
    There is now a clock on the lower right of the main menu screen...Nice ..

    I noticed the white arrow on the main menu screen let me scroll to the right one moretime after the settings option...hmm..I scrolled and saw...What?! A Browser! yes... That's right, a web browser... Booted it up...and holy moly...yes, this is the stock web browser that is on my Android phone...Punched in works! Cool..

    Now the question we all want to know... On demand?
    YES. it is here. I literally have not checked it out yet, as I am too excited about this update, I had to post about it. But yes, its here, and seems to be on par with the online player and Ios version.

    I am going to post a few pics to show off some other stuff, and hopefully we can get a detailed list of what is in this update soon..when I am not so excited..

    I a still playing with it, but finding out more cool stuff.

    I just docked it in my home dock, and was notified I needed to update the software for the homedock, and to click ok to do so. Its currentlyuodateing now.. All the lights on it are blinking like mad..kind of freaky.

    After som more poking around, I see in the 'my library'section, there is now a spot for 'my recorded shows' and 'recorded channels' and an option to setup recordings. !!! Saweeet! This update has more in it than I could have asked for. Finally, SXM over delivered!

    Strangely, I just got an alert for this while I was listening to a Radio Replay and wasn't even connected to the internet! Waiting for download now.

    After all the feedback I submitted to all outlets that I could contact about no clock on the display, I can't wait to see the clock finally!

    Now I'm getting a home dock update

    I got the dock update also. Seems like they listened. The clock is not fancy, but its there. And SCHEDULED RECORDINGS!

    Only 7 of my preset channels are showing up in the list view of my favorites.

    And the dock update lights up like my pinball machine. Cool.
