    0870 is working just fine on my HR44-200. Tested the 'auto delete "feature"' and it's quashed/cured the bug.

    Hope that they run this out quick. I usually get updates 2-3 weeks after the initial rollout...

    Usually it is if it ain't broke don't fix it, But now is it's broken you better hurry up and fix it.

    So after 24+ hours and a couple of re-boots, I am still missing, Pandora, You Tube, Sports search, and all main menu icons. Typically, when new software is installed, these items appear much quicker....

    Try doing a keyword search on "CLEARMYBOX". This essentially replicates a double reboot.

    a usually is the other way around. Software updates "deletes" these items and they have to re-download again

    I've done the "CLEARMYBOX" search, so now I'll wait. It should be noted that I did have the "870" software, but never experienced this "auto-delete" bug others seem to have had......

    I just tried the Search Keyword "CLEARMYBOX" on one of my HR24s. It worked excellent. It cleared the Guide same as a 2 restarts would do but did it in just one restart so the time required is basically half of the 2 restarts.
    Thanks Bill.

    Same here;

    Did a forced update to 0x0870 on my HR34 early this morning when I saw it in the stream to get away from the cursed auto-delete bug.

    Bug is indeed gone, but all the above in the quoted post are still missing from my box as well as of 7:00 PM (PST).

    Guess I'll try the new "CLEARMYBOX" feature and see what happens too.

    Did mine at 10am, guide is still populating and none of the items have returned yet. So if you do the procedure, it still might take awhile.....

    That news should have its own thread.

    Does it also clear Genie GUI sluggishness?
