I subscribed to Mirror and I was under the impression that mirror refreshed the auction end time and current highest bid of my snipes every hour as opposed to only daily without Mirror. The only time my snipes are refreshed is every couple of days or if I log out and then log back in again. Am I just misunderstanding how it works?

Extra updates are not part of the Mirror offering, perhaps you are mixing this up with the use of the Gixen Desktop Manager, available for Windows based PCs, which does allow you to tinker with the price refresh scheduling... that is because it uses your resources to do that, not the Gixen servers.

It is not practical for the web interface to provide more frequent updates, the number of Gixen users, the huge number of snipes they schedule and the amount of resources currently required (though that may change in the future) to retrieve the current price of an auction, preclude it, for a reasonably priced service, like this one.

Here on the web interface, updates to prices are also more frequent closer to the auction end time... but I don't think that rate depends on whether or not you are subscribed to the Mirror service either.

Logging out and in has no effect, on this, no matter whether you subscribe or not... however you will only see updates if you refresh the page by pushing the 'Add' button, without entering any auction details in the boxes.

The Mirror service is so named because the major advantage it gives you is having an extra server working on your normal snipes.. and that makes the service much more reliable, for your account.
