    I know 576 doesn't have the feature. I'm asking for more specific info on what the 57B feature does. Can anyone explain? Does it just change the RES like the button on the front of the box?

    Correct, the list is DMA markets, not cities.

    Well SS should know. It would make more sense to do it by DMA, and if so Monroe would be included.

    No. Goes straight to 480.

    It's a toggle between whatever HD res you are on and 480.

    Yes, but during that month plus people have been told over and over that it's only going out to certain people but they aren't listening to that either. Everyone was told when the announcement was made that it was going to take a long time before everyone go it. That's not something the Mods are making up, that's info they got from DirecTV.

    And that does not change the fact that no matter how many times the question gets asked, the answer does not change. The dates are what the are. If there are changes, the will be relayed here. Asking over and over and over isn't going to change it.

    I don't mean to be rude, but seriously folks, "is this on?"

    This will be a S L O W rollout. I know there are those who have chosen not to believe me in the past but isn't it getting kinda obvious?

    And I would further like to say that it wasn't such a big announcement. It was mostly blogs that carried the news. When DIRECTV ramps up its marketing for the new UI... you won't be able to miss it.

    So, Stuart, are you actually saying that the rollout will not be fast, will not reach all markets in the near future, and will in fact be S L O W???

    Why didn't you mention this before??????

    :D

    With firmware 0x57B, pressing and holding EXIT causes the output resolution to change to 480p and unchecks all other resolutions in the setup menu. Pressing and holding EXIT a second time restores previous settings and returns the output resolution to whatever it was previously. There is an on-screen display indicating that the box is in "SD mode" or "HD mode" after the button press.

    Thanks. hmmm... I don't see how that's going to help. I'm on 576 and I tried going to the setup menu HDTV Options: TV Resolutions and unchecked all except 480p and still got no graphics on the 480i TV via composite. I'm presuming what I did with 576 does the same that the shortcut that you described for 57B.

    One way I can see the graphics on the 480i TV is to use the RES button on the front of the box and select 480i. Another way is the partial work around I'm using now, to view the SD version of the channel while using native mode. But that doesn't help if there's a HD recording I want to watch.

    Got the new HD Guide this morning on my three DVRs. Looks pretty based on the few minutes I checked it out before coming to work.

    I noticed that some time slots for some channels in the Guide had not yet populated. Is that normal after this download? I rebooted the boxes before I came to work, so hopefully the Guide will have populated by the time I get home. :)

    Yes, it clears the guide and has to redownload it. It can take a while to get the full 2 weeks.
