    Is it possible to display the grid guide on the first press of the guide button for the H21 ? Mr HR21 has the option to change this, but the H21 does not appear to.

    Thanks.

    I don't have that option on my unit. Are you sure it's under the Display menu?

    Definitely not there... last item on the list is Language. There is no option for changing the guide keypress that I can find.

    What software do you have?

    I don't remember if it was added in the last CE or before that. I am assuming it was in the last CE update and you don't have that one.

    I had that feature before and used it. Now it doesn't work and there is no way to get to Guide Keypress. I don't have CE.

    May I suggest restarting the receiver? H21 restarts wicked fast and it might solve your problem.

    I will try restarting the box this evening & I will find the software version. Is it displayed on the main help/setup screen somewhere ?

    You would need to update your software. You have the national release and it isn't in it.
    Tonight you could try a CE version that does have it.
