    I received Ox5cd on two HR20-700s overnight and the program guide on both is empty. I wonder why this update cleared the guide and how long should it take to rebuild? :confused:

    Most updates clear the guide data. It takes 24 to 48 hours for the guide data, posters, etc to rebuild back to being 2 weeks worth of data.

    I really would just like to see this software take a direction like Xfinity X1 and Dayview. Videos here: http://blog.comcast.com/2012/05/wat...1-remote-control-app-and-project-dayview.html

    You really should watch the videos. Look how smooth the interfaces run and yet UI elements have a certain "fluid" motion like a modern day UI should have. Take a look at how you interact with apps on your iphone/ipad/android and watch the video. Then see how the DirecTV software just doesn't feel as polished without the level of 'flow' in the UI.

    I really hope DirecTV takes some of this input as constructive criticism. All I hope for is a great software package that enhances the total overall experience. It really is a win-win for everybody to have this level of communication with DirecTV on these ideas.

    My HR21 and HR24 both do this and both are still on the previous software (0x59e???) from March. It's not new to 0x5cd.

    05CD arrived on an HR22 overnight and now I'm seeing the same HDMI handshake problem others have reported. This is going through a Yamaha RX-A3000. Switching the AVR to another input and then back usually cures it until the next channel change. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries. I've been unable to reproduce the problem with the HR22 connected directly to the TV.

    05CD came to my HR20, that is connected to the same AVR, last week. I've not seen the problem on the HR20.

    I've seen the distorted banner on version 5c8 on HR24-200. With this new version it's the first time I've seen it on all 3 of my units (H21-100, H24-200, HR24-200).

    720p or HDMI Handshake Issue
    I have Native set to Off in both situations.

    Originally I had 1080i and 1080p only selected but I decided to select 720p as well.
    So now I have 3 resolutions selected and the HDMI Handshake issue seems to go away can anyone else verify if this seems to work?

    HDMI Handshake - Not sure if what I am seeing is the same as others.

    When I switch to SD channel or SD recorded program, the TV switches to 1440x240 for a moment, and then to 720x480. When I switch back, the TV displays 1920x1080I, bit for a moment it displays two compressed video images right & left. Yesterday I swapped in a new HDMI cable, and that made it better. The day before, it would get stuck on these distorted display resolutions, and then the solution was to turn the TV off & on again. It was just last night I realized they had rolled out new software. I have 0x5cd.

    Up until a few days ago this setup worked just fine. What's a bit more odd is that I have 2 identical setup, same HR24-100 and same LCD HDTV and the other one does not have the issue.

    I'd be delighted to put up with a silly banner distortion if the effing DVR would respond to a remote command before one starts to wonder if it missed the button press altogether. It was comically maddening last night watching my wife spend 3 minutes trying to simply tune a channel. She actually gave up and pressed list instead to watch a recording. Oh boy, the delay there made another "comical" moment.

    I'm still at a March release, and I am getting ready to polish my bat so it flies through the air that much faster as I bring it down on these under-powered boxes.

    well i hate to rain on the fact that the majority of these replys are negative and that i have some of those issues too buuutt this update has fixed something for me on my hr-700. the whole room service was not working for me since they ended the testing. now it is working again and well. i did not rip out the old stuff for the single wire stuff. when i got 3 free boxes i figured try it for the 3 bucks a month. i had extra internet connections.:D

    I've had DirecTV for more than a decade, this is the worst I've ever seen it. By far. I'm not one to normally complain a lot, except about their brain-dead front line script readers, but this is ridiculous.

    I just received 0x5cd this morning and am also experiencing this issue going through a Denon 2809ci and HR22-100, everything else being similar.

    I have received the new update on both machines now.

    The stuttering issues on the 100 were not evident last night. Hoping this problem is gone now. It was rather annoying.

    Other than that..machines seem responsive with the new update.

    Last Thursday I had MRV installed and received a HR22-100, it tried to download data (I assume an update) and "hung up" meaning no picture, and center light rotating all night. I finally reset it and had issues throughout the day. My husband discovered the CCK power plug was loose and we thought maybe power interruption was causing the issue. No problems for the rest of the week, until this morning and it wouldn't come on at all, I tried doing a reset, no luck. Ended up unplugging it and it finally came on and a message come on requesting download data and seemed to 'hang up' again.

    So...my HR20-700 updated to 0x5cd 5/21, the HR22-100 is 0x59e from 5/18. Is the update causing these issues or is something wrong with the receiver? Could it be the CCK?

    Well, the longer the 0x5CD is on my 3 HR24-500s, the less happy I am with it. When I got it, all was good. Plenty fast, no or little remote ignoring and I was happy. Now that I've had it since 5/5/2012, issues are starting to come up.

    1. Speed is still very good - happy about that
    2. Remote response/ignoring - unfortunately, this is starting again. Not quite as bad as with 0x59E, but bad.
    3. Video/Audio glitches - not happy :( Happening all to much from both live and recorded events on nearly any channel. But it isn't consistent which is also an irritant.

    Why the hell would the push this update out with the HDMI handshake bugs??:mad::confused::mad: You know how annoying that is going to be to non tech folks? Nevermind the number of phone calls to tech support they are going to receive?

    Seems pretty dumb.

    {MOD EDIT}

    I also have a Denon (AVR-1909). Now I can't even revert back to the NR :(

    I feel your pain....in addition to two excellent HR24s I have two HR22-100s and an HR21-100 that are...well, you know the story. I've been a D* customer since 1999 and keep telling myself the next firmware update will be 'the one' (delusional I guess)...currently on 0x59e. :rolleyes:
