    I have it fully loaded on both a HR20 and a HR22 and the graphics don't seem to bog it down to me. YMMV though.

    I got it legit in LA last week. Honestly guys, it looks nice for the most part, but its nothing to get that excited about. The UI is pretty much exactly the same except that its black instead of blue :D.

    There's been three HR34-700 NR since the NR became public. That's 0x04C0, 0x04C4 and the current 0x04C8 in a little over two months. Think that's call a Work-In-Progress.

    My HR22-100 updated recently black background is OK but everything is in slow motion now. I thought the old setup was slow this is ridiculous. Go to list and select something then hit play and the selection starts in the small window and stay there for a long time before the menu closes and the picture goes to full screen. When you hit play it should play. The jump ahead thirty takes forever. I used to hit it 6 or 8 times and jump through all the commercials, now it takes forever. Rebooted and didn't seem to change anything. Give me the old UI back.

    Interesting. The 02468 force worked great on my HR-21 but not at all on my HR-24 and H-24's.

    Guide speed seems normal and it looks nice but I can't see where any increased functionality is gained by this upgrade.

    There really isn't, but we don't know if it lays groundwork for something later.

    Why? There is no way the old guide is better than the new one. If you just don't like it because it's change, you're going to have to get over it.

    Some of the people all of the time I guess. I don't want anything to do with the old guide.

    Because the HR24 has a Faster CPU and More RAM so it is already Fast so the HDUI does not help that much.

    The HR21 has a Slower CPU with Insufficient RAM so it is Overworked and this more Efficient HDUI helps out a lot to produce more Speed in the Guide, etc.

    Disagree. I think it's made a huge improvement in both of my HR24s and both my H24s. They're nearly as quick as Dish Receivers.

    Winters,...
    Others have made the point that a bigger increase in performance is seen by the older HDRs than the newer ones. That's not to say that there's not a significant boost in the 24's.

    Really?

    I certainly do not doubt that it's true for you, but for me, I also saw no speed improvement with my HR24-500. That box was already fast and responsive and still remains the same with the HD GUI. The only slight slowdown is Whole-Home activities.

    But on my HR20-700, now it is as responsive my HR24. Prior to the HD GUI, it was painfully slow.

    EXACTLY MY EXPERIENCE!!! :D

    I have noticed some Speed Performance with my 5 HR24s but a lot more with my other DVRs with a Slower CPU and Less RAM which was also told to me by the Project Manager for DVR Development at CES 2011 last year.

    You will also find this Improvement in the HR34 as it has a Faster More Robust CPU and More RAM than the HR21, HR22 or HR23.
