    The first thing I noticed today was I lost my custom guide.
    It was simply gone and the setup showed "setup custom guide" as if I'd never done it. :confused:

    The second thing I noticed was changing channels now only takes one second longer than my TV takes for OTA channels.
    WooHoo for those that use native on.

    720p to 1080i or back used to take 8 secs. :eek2:

    Got 0x62c early am this morning on HR20-700 in Northern CA. Playlist was totally gone until I did a reboot. Now it's back but very slow to refresh after deleting a watched program.

    Channel changing seems to be faster (native on).

    But the big plus for me is that the DirecTV Subtitles feature is now working properly. Before, the letters were intermittently being cut off vertically making subtitles illegible until channel was changed and changed back.

    One problem I've noticed on the last 3 or 4 NRs is if I do several 30 second skip operations too fast, it will skip to the end of the recorded show or to live on a live broadcast. I have other ways to skip to the end. A 30 second skip should never skip to the end of a recording.

    Hold down the 30 second slip / skip and it jumps to the end of the program has been in place for several years.
    The opposite key direction will do the reverse.
    Holding down the FF key will jump to a tick mark.

    If you press the skip / slip key fast enough I can see where it could interpret this the same as holding it down.

    I normally pause about 1 second between skip button presses. Until recently, I would never skip to the end. Now I pause 2 to 3 seconds between button presses and sometimes it will skip to the end even with that much delay. An option to turn off skip to end with the 30 second skip would be nice.

    Can you try another remote and see if "maybe" the button is sticking ?

    Some problems that appear to be the remote are actually the receiver and a Menu, Reset of the receiver usually fixes them.

    you can also start fast forward and then hit the 30 second button and it will skip to the next tick.

    The problem is happening on both of my HR21-700s and has happened with 3 different remotes.

    Dis you try to reset one of the receivers.
    I just hit the skip / slip button 20 fast times in a row and it did them all and did not jump to the end of the program / progress bar.

    OK, I reset one of my recievers and tried again hitting the skip 30 second button quickly about 10 times. It took 5 tries, but once again it skipped to the end of the recorded program. I know this problem has existed forever, but it is much worse on the last 3 or 4 NRs.

    At least it took 5 tries to make it do it. Is that improved from before the reset ?

    Did you get new software last night ? Another poster in Utah did get the 62c version.

    Edit: I now see the new version of software listed in your signature.

    I'm still on 5xd2 and get this skip to end issue on occasion myself. So it seems it isn't peculiar to this update.

    An option to return to previous firmware action of the buttons would be better!

    I have the exact same thing on 2 DirecTV remotes and on my programmable remote. It NEVER did this before this week. It's very bothersome when scrolling the Program Guide and Search also! It's not the remotes nor the way I'm suddenly using them.

    With the update I have not lost anything--my playlists are complete, etc.

    The response from a remote is noticeably faster--a HUGE plus :)

    I received software version 62c five days ago and now have seen a new problem. I record the show "Sunday Morning" on CBS every Sunday and have for several years now. This morning when I went to play it, I noticed there were 2 Sunday Mornings recording. I watched one of them and deleted it and then started watching the second recording which was exactly the same as the first one. Same date, same time, same length, same recording, same channel.
