    Any time the older 4xx version is streaming and a force is done.

    OK, that is expected behavior. Similar to any other forced download such as those whose name can't be spoken.

    Thanks for the info.

    Got HDGUI today HR22-100. Long Beach, CA. Didn't see it on the list of cities/regions but did get a few emails from DIRECTV before and after update. So much for the idea the L.A. area would be getting it last.

    Not sure if I am having a hardware issue that that the SW is not responding to or not.

    Turned the TV on to find screen saver on and a "Searching for Signal Sat IN 2 (771)" message. Changing the channel had no effect. SAT signal test showed strong values for both tuners on multiple tuners.

    Sent diagnostic 20111223-1F2F.

    Menu reset did not bring back live TV. RBR brought back normal control.

    About 20 minutes later TV pixelated, the screen froze, and the 771 error reappeared on SAT 2. Swapped inputs right at the back of recever (after the BBCs). No change.

    Sent diagnostic 20111223-193B. RBR again.

    HW: HR22/100
    SW: 0x576

    You probably have a bad LNB or need a dish alignment badly. Is that the only HR you have? If you have another one, put it on the same coax feed/s and see if the same thing occurs. If it does, get a service call. If it doesn't, it's probably the 22 itself.

    Thanks Rich. 2nd receiver on the same cables had macro blocking on Locals this morning, but not ever the 771 error. Changing the channel away and back corrected the problem.... Signal strength on appropriate Spot beam transponder (103S TP 15 for Orlando NBC, CBS, ABC) never went below 95 on either tuner. I checked 4 other HR receivers on their home cables and got same results. Other transponders were as strong or stronger on all devices. Does not seem like a LNB or alignment issue.

    At the begining of this thread....
    Does this feature work on Non DVR Models i.e.?:

    All Movies
    Movie posters for visual browsing experience
    Find all movies regardless of the sourse (VOD, Linear, PPV, Premium, etc)


    Thanks for the response.

    RSlack :)

    Winters,...
    Receivers without HDDs get less info, have fewer options. In addition to what you notice is missing, the cast and crew info is truncated. No photo nor mini-bio.

    By E-mail you mean:

    1. E-mail via valid internet e-mail account?
    2. E-mail via the DirecTv HD Recv/Dvr, i.e. Messages?

    RSlack :)

    Movie posters for visual browsing experience

    Is there any way to shut this off and get a text display? It's horrible.

    I can read. Honest, I can.

    Thanks,

    Burt

    Sounds like the 22 is shot, not a bad thing, maybe you'll get a 24 to replace it.

    What a shame. D* has taken an efficient, well thought out routine and destroyed it in the service of making it pretty. The posters are unreadable, even in HD.

    Glad it works for you. I am reacting to my wife who has a slight vision problem. She had no problem with the SD interface. Now, she has to call me in to read the screen whenever she wants to find a movie.
