    You must not have looked very closely. In the spreadsheet at the link you were given Harrisburg is listed as 1/19.

    I didn't open the spread sheet. I looked at the list provided in the thread. So it's been moved to the 19th? Gotcha. Thanks.

    The H21/200 (receiver only) had a show paused from a remote HR using MRV
    I then changed channel directly to a network channel (press '2' and wait).

    The channel changed correctly but the bottom of the display had the graphic for a DVR, showing the program was a few minutes in and showing a pause icon. Seems like the H21 thought it was a DVR for a few seconds on live tv.

    Wrong thread to ask about when you'll get it.

    I'm seeing this too and came here to see if others have noticed this. I wish there was a thread to discuss/track issues with the HD GUI on it's own and not intermixed with "when will I get it?" posts.

    So far I've seen...

    1) PIG video window ratio is off
    2) Pixelation during pans
    3) Audio drop outs
    4) Scrub bar blocks out burned in closed caption during pause - would love to have some GUI preferences or themes available
    5) Showroom not working

    Either this has changed on the [um] version you are using, or this actually exits the recording, not the scroll bar display. I rarely view Live TV (except for news) so playback behavior is paramount.

    How long do you wait to hit the Exit Button? If you wait too long it will then Exit and Not Clear the Screen.

    The Exit button has always made the trickplay bar go away during pause, ff, rw, etc.

    Like the new GUI. Both HR24-500s are working and very fast. Did have to search for a few things but always do with changes.:)

    I noticed they finally changed channel 1 to reflect how to's for the new HdGUI. When did they do that? Guess the majority of customers have it now, right?

    Channel 1 for Information has been there quite awhile as I have seen it every time I go there to Clear NVRAM.

    I don't think I cleared NVRAM since before Christmas. So yeah I guess I haven't been to Ch 1 in awhile. Looks better!

    If the unit is paused, and there is any osd, if you hit exit the osd disappears withouth exiting the show. This is on the current nr hd GUI.

    What does clearing NVRAM actually do?

    It speeds up the DVR by Not having to process needless info such as sending extraneous signals that it really doesn't need to send.

    There are more technical reasons if you choose to use The Search Function but it does Speed things up for most of us!!! :D

    I understand it Clears Out Cluttered or Corrupted Data but that is about a Technical as I can get because that is all I remember from a former Post.

    I have a R22-100 and some of the channels are coming in in Letter Box format. I called D about it and they told me that the channels that are HD will show up like this.Before this new guide change all were fine.

    Which channels are coming in letterboxed? Do you have an SD television or an HDTV?

    I've seen all of these, plus the pillar box bug is back. Watch 16:9 HD program, 4:3 SD commercial comes on, HD program comes back as squished 4:3 instead of 16:9.

    Pixelation tears also happen during sudden screen transitions. Much worse in 1080i than 720p. Native is set to on.

    Audio disruptions happen on my local ABC affiliate every 20 seconds or so. They usually only last a fraction of a second -- more like a stutter.

    Boxes are faster and slower at the same time. Bringing up the GUI for the first time is now delayed an additional second or two. Once GUI is up, navigation is much faster.

    If it happens even once out of 100 times, it is too many. Not a workable method. Why have EXIT work like STOP when you have STOP? As long as the scroll bar is displayed during PAUSE, EXIT should clear it, not kill playback.
