Re: New Odyssey firmware update 2015.5

Love the new additions in this latest update( 2015.5) but NOTICE that 3rd party SSD's were not supported.

"Access to the use of these two Samsung 850 EVO SSDs is expected to be made available with the May 2015 free Odyssey firmware update. Only the Samsung 850 EVO 500GB and EVO 1000GB SSDs, along with the Odyssey 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB SSDs, will function in the Odyssey monitor/recorders."

Wondering if you this is still on the Roadmap Update for release SOON?
