    There appears to be some period of delay after the RBR before the box recognizes the new code to download.

    locals not loaded - guide data or the channels aren't there at all?

    There appears to be different timing/sync of the HDMI even when using 1080p/24 on both ends.

    During the testing it was widely identified that not all listed 1080P/24 sets worked. DirecTV continuously added more sets as they were identified and tested... but they can't get all of them. Over time, its expected more and more sets will be "compatible".

    Well, no channels were coming in, and the guide data was gone. It is rebooting at the moment now.

    YES! Ultra Fast Channel Surfing (channel up and down) using the guide.

    I didn't mind the "in the middle of the program. I've got 2 HD-DVR's on the same tv, so I just flipped to box b when box a got the download. They got the downloads about 15 minutes apart. My other HD-DVR got it about an hour before my other two.

    Rebooting because of "you" or rebooting because of the download???

    You can either force the download using the same method you got the CE or you can wait for the receiver to recognize on its own...

    Edit: My bad... I was thinking of 254...

    OK, came home to find my HR20-100 locked up. RBR forced the new software download.

    Now my locals are not in the guide. I noticed that the guide data was washed. Will the locals come back when the guide rebuilds?

    I thought that was just for getting the OTA channels to work properly?

    Guess I can play with it for a bit. Are there any 1080p/24 contents available on D*TV right now that I can test with?

    Down to <400 users viewing and minutes between posts... perhaps the wave of lockups and reboots/updates is finally cresting! :D

    Sorry for being late to the party, I had no idea this problem "popped" back up again. Got home from work, my HR-20 was fine. Then I got the reboot at 5:15 P.M. Then I got the update messages thru the evening, kept delaying until 9:40 P.M. (Had to get my recordings in :) Download/ reboot takes 16 minutes & I am back up and running. :)
