    Yes, correct - see gct's PDF files where PID matrix for obtain system info/EPG.
    Actually, only CONUS tpns carry the data.

    Actually, 0x576 DID go out this morning, but not to the DVR's. The version was in the stream for the H21/23/24/25, while version 0x4E2 was streaming for the HR2x. Yes, 0x57B was also being streamed overnight, but it may have only been available "in-house" (i.e. only their own developers/testers/etc. had access). These firmware streams show up frequently on Doug's site but are useless to us because there's no way to force download them.

    I think what P Smith is doing is relying on the data used by our DVR's to locate software when we force a download. That info would not show versions that are "in-house" and not available to us.

    Well, common sense could be temporary unavailable ... :)

    We all did/do/will do mistakes and errors, include our software and resulting data.

    If you know what TP you're looking for you know what can and cannot be downloaded. Those that are on TP's that we can't download from you don't want to download anyways.

    Doug's site is far from useless.

    I don't know why you don't want to follow logs and common sense (with my explanation), but those tp## posed are in FW announcements what I post for you and others. DVR/STB doesn't know those tp## before the FW announcement will comes up inside of common for ALL tpns PID 0002.

    Guys, please get back to topic. Redh is an excellent resource representing a ton of work on the part of several people. It operates at a loss and relies on volunteers for monitoring. Let's be grateful Doug Brott provides this service.

    Do we even remember what the topic is? Maybe memories need refreshing. ;)

    This has been an interesting thread to follow but it was almost the last straw for me when PSmith posted that log. I was just waiting for someone to quote him and then have to see it again. At least that didn't happen. :hurah:

    If you are so smart and easy with the new info ... well good for you, but perhaps a few ppl got something new and entertained by the post.
    Don't dictate in public.

    Wasn't trying to dictate. It's just that I read most of the forum posts on my phone and it was just a little annoying when I saw that long log. It was just meant to be a lighthearted jab. No ill will was intended.

    Well part of the point I was trying to make is that this thread was not started as a guide for how to instruct people to force a download of the new GUI. If you look way back to post #33 when someone mentioned forcing a download they were instructed to go to the CE forum if they wanted to do this. On several occasions since then we have been reminded of the same thing. Instead people have just ignored this request and continue to talk about GUI versions and when to get them, etc. That's why I quoted Stuart Sweet in my first post. He's the one that said get back on topic.

    I did changes in my post with that long log and like to comply with all members who are reading by phones.

    Yes I did look at your revised post. You're still missing the point. My point was to emphasize how much this thread has gotten off topic which the mods have mentioned on several occasions.

    The GUI is lightening fast. The boxes remain the same.

    Channel changing is still slow? Also do IR commands still lock up receivers?

    The weak link is still between the remote and the box. Especially on the H/HR21. Haven't had a real remote issue with my HR24 & H25.
