    Not possible this week. You'll need to check out the rules of the Cutting Edge (CE) Forum and watch for further information there ....

    Please do not talk about "how to get this download" in this thread. That would be part of the CE process and should be discussed in the CE forums that litzdog911 pointed to.

    Further posts about CEs will be deleted from this thread.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Well excuse me Tom. This thread is "anticipating the HD GUI". Well it's here now and I can't ask you "experts" how to get it? Not the way to treat a new member.

    Well this isn't exactly true, or this wouldn't be an anticipation thread.
    It will be "here", when it goes national.

    Your question has already been answered. Please check out the linked information. That will tell you everything you need to know and give you places to ask more questions.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    The only timeframe Mike White gave was October. Could be then, could be November, even without a delay. I'd think this rollout would be a slow one to ease the call centers.

    How about rolling out as optional at first. Once most of the bugs are work out they roll it out to the general population.

    They're doing essentially that with the CE program. We test it, report bugs and issues, etc. When DirecTV believes it's all ready to go nationally, it's released as a customer release.

    They roll out new software gradually, not in one big blast.

    They do engage in customer testing of new software regularly.

    I like the way the HD GUI looks, but the old SD version didn't really bother me. What I can't wait for is this part "a serious performance boost to satellite receivers".

    I believe only the HR34 will remove that restriction.

    damnit... so I just have to hold tight until then.
    Thanks for the quick response. Such a ridiculous limitation.
