    This is the single most ignored product at D*. Is there any other product they have completely ignored for 13+ months?

    Figures... :nono2: I guess I'll quit checking my H20 to see if it has updated :confused:

    It would be nice to have the firmware upgraded though. I can even live with the double tap to get to the guide. But the guide itself is pathetically slow, especially when compared to my SD receivers.

    What doesn't your -600 do?
    Yes, my H21 is faster than my -600, but my -600 functions with the old software.

    The TV you have it not "main stream" so I understand your HDMI problem. It works fine with my Sony, but it seems to use a different chip for HDMI.
    There is some new software coming and you might look over at the CE forum for when there is the next CE test software to see if it will help.
    As for the H21, I was lucky to be picked to do some field testing for it.

    Is there anyone in the San Diego area that has already received this upgrade? I'm in North County and it has yet to hit my machine.

    Can anyone say, as close to specifically as you can, where the H20-600 upgrade is being sent? Or, is there an upcoming CE for the -600? I'm in West Central Ohio and really, really want x2024! :) I missed the last CE.

    Please and thank you!

    You can watch your TV using the component connection.
    It's the analog HD output.
    And I believe your problem is with your TV not following the HDMI standard, so you need to wait for D* to accommodate the variation that your TV decided to use.

    Sorry for the noob question but how does it do it on its own? Does it come off the satellite or must a telephone line be plugged in or what?

    When DIRECTV is ready to update the receiver they will push the update over the SAT's. You do not need a phone line connected for it to happen.
