    Is this update the Android Jellybean version or you noticed something new in this 5.6.0 update?

    Can someone post the update version number and change log?

    This may be the long awaited Vudu fix and little else although I hope Jellybean is also included.

    This is from Vizio support

    Jacob: This is not a Jelly bean update (no ETA planned at this time for that). The 5.6.0 update fixes playback issues with VUDU, along with more refined system stability and performance.

    Believe me, when JB comes to any 2nd Gen device we'll all know it. It won't be a behind the scenes update.

    It took two tries (and >20 minutes) for my update to load. It did NOT fix You Tube or Gmail, and still get "aw snap" messages. Still a light selection in the apps market. So the only real fix was for Vudo.

    Did the update a few hours ago. Havn't seen that much of a change. I think the big bews here is that Vizio is still supporting our costar and there may still be hope for jellybean in the future. Fingers crossed!

    Hi Alaska

    Honestly, I would toss that little puck & move on. Get a GS-7 or something less frustrating. You had the Logitech Revue early on. For me the GS-7 was the logical next unit when my Revue stopped working. I'm sure someone will post another temporary fix for ya. But, seriously, it might be time to get a more reliable unit or find an alternative to GTV altogether.

    I tried the Vizio Co-Star for a few days and knew that unit was nothing but trouble. I returned it in the face of other folks making excuses for it. At $99.00 it is more trouble than it's worth. Why let a device cause your internet access to feel like $500.00 worth of trouble???

    Don't get tired, get smart...

    Carl

    I just updated to U5.6.0 today and it did not fix Vudu for me either. There is a thread on the issue at Vudu forums, I have mentioned the issue continues but I am tired of messing with the Co-Star, I have other players for Vudu that work fine.
