    I have since disconnected the Genie running x0797 due to all the issues, my wife has been giving me nasty looks with the freezing, pixellation issues which happens with the WHDVR option also. Spread out all the series links to all of our HR24's, so thank god I did not trade them in for clients at that time.

    Will monitor the forums and keep the Genie until the problems appear fixed, which means no GenieGO for us either.

    Please get this fixed DirecTV. :(

    Why no genie go? Its not tied to a genie, it works independently with any unit.

    And do you mean you literally unplugged the genie from power?

    I received the update 2 days ago for my HR44/700. So far it has been very stable on my platform, no issues so far. I have not tried out the new sports feature yet.

    Here is an oddity I saw today....Pressed the new "Sports" search icon, first screen is "Today". It shows the icon for Formula 1, when I select it, it pops up that the F1 qually is on today at 10am my time(which is MTN zone). On the "My Teams" page I have selected to follow/record F1 and when I press the F1 icon there, it shows that the F1 qually is already being recorded(because it actually started at 9am MST). 2 different times displayed in the same menu?.......Luckily the HR44 did actually record at the correct time......

    Good call.....forgot I needed a Genie to get one, but not tied to it for operation if I shut the Genie off.

    And yes, I did unplug the power supply from the Genie, since then everything is working great including WHDVR across all my HR-24's. My wife likes me again. :)

    0x797 HR44/500

    Going to any SonicTap Channel, the 'More Info' banner is highlighted, which requires you to press 'Exit" to make that go away, until then, you can't even upchannel//downchannel. Once another song starts, the 'More Info' banner reappears requiring once again an 'Exit' command. This doesn't occur on other channels, just SonicTap, and is annoying. Don't know when this 'feature' was added, but it needs to go away! :bang

    Another SNAFU for the HR34-700/AM21 running 799.

    Same as before, watching NFL ST games in a custom menu for only the NFL games being played.

    Several times during Sunday afternoon when I press channel up the channel changes to the next channel but the Channel Banner goes nuts.
    It rapidly scrolls through the custom menu channel listings in an endless loop. While this is happening the new channel displays normally. First time I say this I hit channel down and it switched to some other channel and stopped scrolling. Later I let it run and there seemed to be no end to the scrolling.

    Update is stable, all though I did have to reboot the HR44 and the HR24 because whole house sharing wasn't working. Sports search working without a hitch. The only thing I noticed with this update is the text in the GUI looks off, not as sharp, kind of out of focus.

    Okay, this might have been around for a while, but I just noticed it after this last download...

    When viewing the PlayList, it now will say "On Now" when the show being recorded is currently on. When viewing the info of a show, it no longer has the option for "Upcoming" and now says "Other Showings". Also, when viewing "Other Showings", all the VOD listings show the Season and Episode number.

    Nice!

    My update has been very stable. The next move is getting the c41w when they come available.

    Is it safe to assume that this release is still being rolled out? I checked my HR34-700 this morning and still on the old release.

    Update:
    Text in GUI looks fine. One day it's off, the other it's ok. Maybe it was just my middle aged eyes :(

    If you've tuned (on purpose or accidentally) to an SD channel, you'll get a below par GUI in the Guide or List....

    This version has been out for a couple of weeks now, but this site http://www.redh.com/dtv/ has been showing the previous version as being in the stream for the last few days. I know that last week, I looked and saw this latest version being in the stream on a couple different days, during daylight hours. Could it be DTV has been receiving complaints about the new version and has now put it on hold?

    I would not suggest that. Reverting could cause you to lose some recordings

    Perhaps, until as the others have mentioned, you get the "correct" version for your DVR, which could be as early as tonight!

    Same issue with JCWest's post. HR34-700.


    I have had the same channel banner issues. I tried to clear, using the "double reset". Still does it from time to time.
