When will we see this new HD Gui? I would like to see this sooner rather then later.
Look at my post just three posts above yours...........
It's like waiting for a pot of water to boil. The more you watch, the longer it seems to take.
Guys, I've said it before and yet no one's believed me... this will be a sloooooooow rollout. Probably the slowest since the D10s went from their original UI to the Blue UI.
That probably was a bigger change, then this, but there are a lot more customers now.
Oh most certainly. I don't know the numbers but DIRECTV itself was smaller and the D10 was only three models, while this affects 19 models at last count.
Thanks, I figured it may take a while to get everything back to normal. Right now it seems reasonably quick, even with the schedule and graphics download going on. Although it always seems fast after an RBR and then starts seems to start slowing down. Hopefully that won't happen with the new HD GUI.
Ah, yes, but will the new DTivo beat it out the door??
Sadly, the smart money is on the HD-GUI.
The answer to that may depend on where you live.
Is there any reason why it should take longer to get the guide data on the initial install of the new firmware? The firmware downloaded quickly on my HR24-500 and the new interface is in place but it is stuck on 0% for the guide data. I don't recall this being the case with my HR20-700. I can go through the menus without a problem. I can play recorded shows.
It is all good now. The data started to download.
Guide data is about the same - 12 Hours. It the additional new graphics (posters, icons, & logos) that take longer - 12 to 36 Hours.
Some have reported a dash reset has miraculous gotten the graphics to suddenly appear.
What is the software version for the national release?
Assuming that's your equipment listed in your sig:
If you've been selected for the new HDGUI:
0x0576 on your HR20
Man seeing this new GUI Comcast is gonna rollout stings a lil bit...9 channels and 2hrs, and larger PIG is seems all on the screen.....Thats the only plus with comcast new GUI as the rest of it is garbage imho
Really wish we could add another line or two with another half hour with all the extra space we seem to have.
oh well, still glad i dont have to deal with comcast at all here(not offered), never herd a good thing about them really.
I checked the Red H DirecTV app and found the HDGUI national release was listed for my two DVRs. Cool, I thought, it's now available. I was so excited, I thought I'd try to force a download. Instead, my DVR reloaded the current, old, makenfracken software.
OK. Let's get down to brass tacks. Who do I have to sleep with to get the HDGUI software today? I don't care who it is. Woman, man, goat, sheep, vegetable, alien, smelly, decrepit or inflatable. I'd even sleep with Joan Rivers. And Melissa. At the same time. An hour afterward I'd use a crate of brain soap to wash off the stench. But at least I would have the new HDGUI.
You don't state the hour of your attempt.
The NR is being slowly release across the nation in the wee hours. Think that enough info for you to figure it out.
I use my HR-22 as much like a TiVo as I can given the HR-22's capabilities. I am generally recording something 90% of the time. Does this prevent me from receiving updates? If I'm recording during a window, will it skip my machine?
I'm more likely to have intimate relations with a large casaba melon I call Kathleen than I am to get up in the wee hours to download software, but thanks for the tip.
The original offer still stands.
Holy Cow!! I'll rent you my HR's till the release gets to you; I can't bear the thought of anyone here having relations with Joan Rivers. Melons, ok, but, please, just the brief thought of that.....
Don't get up; just stay up!
No, it will find time to update during that 10% when it's not recording.
