Additional Comments

Sometimes the application will fail to start on the first few attempts. At the server address entry screen, the entry of a valid IP address (that of the Beyond TV server on the LAN) results the error message "Couldn't get BTVServerAddress". This is the stopping point, since the main application menu lies beyond it. The bronze rating signifies that the application has made steps toward normalcy, but is still unusable. The first signs of progress started around v9.60.
