Is there a way of knowing about these IMG upgrades ahead of time?

Seriously, I did not receive any notification about this 1.9.1 upgrade in a Verizon Spotlight magazine and I have looked through each of them before throwing them out.  It could have been in the message box on my TV.  Is that how I would know about any future upgrades?

Is there a website I can go to in the future so if I need to upgrade any of my Verizon equipment, I'll know what to do?

It would be nice, but usually not.  There were some messages on STB that some people reported. 

Its been widely reported that it was being worked on, but no official announcement.

You might try blogging or tweeting in Twitter Joe's replacement Maitreyi to see if she will get someone to release a schedule.  The schedule exists, just those who know are not authorized to release it.

That's odd but not surprising really in the scheme of other things that have been communicated poorly or not communicated at all to customers.  The main thing is the product and the deal I am getting on it.  Surprises are so often a way of life when the technology changes over the years. 

Personally, I was getting used to and enjoying the lighter blue background when the 1.9 came out this past October and now we have switched to the darker background.  Nothing stays the same.

This is the 1.9.1 upgrade that just came out.  The issue going back to April 2011 was regarding the 1.9 version of the IMG.
