    Not sure I like the last 4 channels option. I like that I can track the kids viewing, but not so sure I want to be monitored by my wife..."Why are you watching the HDnet unrated stuff again!?" :D

    I just got the new update.

    I like the look of the new banner. BUT HATE! now that when you want to acces CC, you have to do a total of 5 button pushes. There is another member who posted in this thread that say pushing the yellow button still brings up CC option, NOT in my case. Pushing the yellow button for me just brings up the banner.

    On another note thanks D* (really) for having the 'D* yellow COLORED subtitles option.'

    I don't like the having the 'audio/video--Change resolution & format' option right next to the CC Option.
    I can just see myself always accidently ending up chaning the picture format/resolution.


    [PS D* Just want to say a sincere final thanks for your ch.'s grouping. And for your improving on it from time to time.]

    Karen, I don't see no option to remove channels in the new banner.


    I WISH they would add an option to sell all channels that D* OFFERS, when you press the guide button twice.
    I'm not referring to the choice they give you where you can see all the channels in you custom channels Name list.

    That feature has always been available, it just hasn't been accessible through the banner.

    What I like: about the 'toolbox banner' feature is clean new look above the white bar / toolbox bar.

    More what I don't like: blah blah blah, I don't like the fact that i can No longer press the left arrow button after bringing up the banner, to jump back to what ever Menu feature I was using.

    ^^ Thanks Karen. Also THANKS! for the screenshot. You do not mess around.
    : ) I posted my thoughts about the new toolbox banner to soon after I got the update, thats why I missed it.

    Anyways, I think the new add/remove ch. feature is cool. BUT I will miss the option to see the old list of add/remove ch.'s. The new feature is annoying when you try to remove a Cinema PPV channel from a list.

    You can still see the old add/remove list. Just do what you always did to get there. I'm not posting a screenshot this time tho. <g>

    Winters,...
    It's there. But isn't it easier to build a custom channel than to clean up one already provided?

    I haven't gotten it yet but does it add the missing logos from the HD channels added in the last year? I've always thought it looks crappy without them.

    Channel logos are not tied to software versions.

    Well what are they tied to? When will we get them? It's annoying that the guide is missing so many.

    I woke up to my HR22 resetting this morning. Since power did not go out, I checked the software version. Nothing was upgraded. Since then, I have gotten a message twice saying that the dvr needs to download data. It then powers down and reboots to the download software screen, but never downloads anything. It just searches for 15 minutes and resets the receiver. What could be causing this?

    Pretty sure they're in the guide data. I was missing a bunch and flushed my guide data and they eventually showed back up.

    How do I "flush my guide data"? Is the logo for ESPU HD showing up? MSNBC HD? HGTV HD? Showtime Next HD? HBO2 E HD?

    Update: My HR20-700 updated fine without issue, but for some reason the HR22 cannot download the update.

    My three receivers all rebooted last night. Blue circle bright on all. The HR20s upgraded the software, the HR21 did not.

    After further review, I still say the CC change is ridiculous. Like so many other things, "It's working fine so lets change it." :down:

    Same thing here. Both HR-22s rebooted, but couldn't download. My HR-23 did nothing.
