    I endedup doing both hr20's last night. Both of them were working very quickly after all was said and done. As most other people have noted the menus, ff,rw, etc (basically all interface functions) are working noticibally faster. This even applies to the music and photo. The tremendous lag from button push to response on the screen while going through songs or playlists is better, not perfect yet but now it is livable! It might be time to build my new dual core pc!
    ANyway I'll stress one of the hr20's today as best i can and see what happens.

    Thanks everyone for joining us last night especially in the chat room. Still one more chance tonight. Earl will be there and I will be pop in for a bit as well.

    I apologies to those who are getting the "Server Busy" message. With all of our excellent CES coverage along with this HR20 release, the server is getting pounded pretty hard. To keep it from crashing completely, I had to put a limit on the server load.

    The chat room (http://chat.dbstalk.com) is still the best place to be during these releases as it resides on a different server.

    Hopefully in the near future, we will be doing a server upgrade so hang in there.

    Thanks again!

    Earl it would be neat if they added a feature in SW load that would allow downloads at any time by say hitting reset with 99999 or something instead of 02468. This would allow for us who have a hard time staying up past 11Eastern to get the loads, I got the Santa load only since it was over holidays and didnt have to get up in morning. I tired last night but fell alseep during the football game and didnt wake up till time window was closed.

    I was dead tired last night but saw the email just before I was going to bed. Told the wife I was staying up to toast Elvis' birthday and she just rolled her eyes. :D

    I recorded an OTA HD program after finding it with "search". No problems at all. Thanks Earl and DTV.

    After downloading 115 I lost 2 ota stations last night. these are two stations not part of my primary or secondary markets, but they come in very well. After running antenna setup again the channels appear in my edit list, but don't show up in my favorite list. any ideas on how to fix this?? :)

    I saw recently somewhere but not sure where..

    Exactly when do you do the 02468? During a certain screen after doing a hard reboot? You simply press in this sequence to force a new update search?

    Thanks.

    As a reminder to anyone that was not in the Chat last night.
    If you are experiencing any OTA issues post.. 0x115 install.

    Do a re-setup of the ATSC.
    RESET your antenna options (for ATSC)
    And then re-run the wizard, to force it to redownload the latest mappings.

    will try again but the idea of having a code for early deployers to download at any time would be a nice feature

    Do a re-setup of the ATSC. "How?"

    RESET your antenna options (for ATSC)Where is this?

    And then re-run the wizard. Where is the "WIZARD"?

    Go into the same screen that you setup ATSC the first time
    Menu->Setup->Antenna

    There is an option to "reset antenna" on the lower right.
    After doing that. Just hit Setup Antenna on the lowe right, and it will "walk you through it" (that is what I refer to as the Wizard...)

    I downloaded 0x115 and all was good but I lost my second satellite tuner. I try using the test signal strength but only my 1st tuner is working. Second tuner shows no signal strength at all on all satellites and all transponders. OTA tuners are all working good but for some 771 error. Anyone having this problems?

    I just got my HR20 yesterday, so only had a few hours experience (and no issues) with 0x10b, but 0x115 looks pretty good. I made two recordings last nignt and both were perfect.

    Can someone please explain what "outside the window" means.
    Sorry, but I am learning here. I am slowly catching on and searching for answers before posting questions.

    So if for any reason I need to go back to 0x10b, in layman's terms, how do I?

    Thanks for putting up with me...

    Doug
