    Just to make sure I understand before I let my cohorts know...
    1. Anyone can download this?
    2. When a new HR20 is activated is this the version that will hit that box or will they have to do the download a few times before it will take?

    1) No... you can't force the download.... you have to wait for your area to be authorized/activated for the download... (and about 15 minutes after that happens, your system will automatically download it)

    2) When a new unit is activated.. (at least for the next little while), it will download 0x18a.... then when that box is in an area that is updated for the staggered release, it will get 0x1B4.... If all goes well... in a relatively short period of time... 0x1B4 will go total-national... and that will be the version that is downloaded to all boxes...

    Is the staggered roll out taking place from East to West or West to East? I'm just trying to figure out when we in the south east can expect this software version b/c I didn't have it this morning as of 8:30am eastern time. Also when we get the software release, is there some sort of keyword users have to enter in order to get VOD working?

    I don't have the details on the pattern...
    Usually it goes WEST to EAST

    Once your DoD is activated (automatically), you will get the option in your menu. (aka... that is how you will know that you are ready to go)

    Will this release open up the remote booking feature, or is that still only CE?

    That's not a feature of favorites. There is the CIG (Channels I Get) feature, that is supposed to only record channels that you get, but that has not been fully implemented.

    Using favorites only affects the channels you see in the guide, not what is recorded.

    The software supports the remote booking... but remote booking is still in CE/Development mode....

    So... the DirecTV side of the equation... will not be activated.

    Yes, I have seen that in my setup. But it shows every channel that DirecTV has. How do I limit that list to exclude the channels I don't want? Example, I don't want 80 - 89 those are local HD but I get local HD on 3, 6, 10, etc. I also get local via OTA. So why does the DVR insist on using the 80-89 channels?

    Probably my biggest gripe, too. CBS, say, comes on 2-sat, 2-OTA, 2-mpeg4HD, 2-1 (OTA HD), 80, 81, 380, and 381. Of those I can receive (living in LA) 6 of them, although searches show 8, but probably only want to list 2 (mpeg4 HD & OTA-HD) or maybe only 1. If I didn't live in LA or NYC, I'd still get 8 listed with OTA, but only be able to receive 4 of them. And still only want 1 or 2. Makes searches a mess, and makes series links tricky to set up. And that's just CBS.

    The HD/SD thing is helpful, though.

    Since this is release now, I decided to repost this here now.

    I had a number of items set to record last night from 8 til 11. The first 2, from 8-9 and 8:30-9 recorded and played back fine. The 2 items set to record from 9-10, only one playedback. The other immediately goes to would you like to delete. The only item set from 10-11, I tried to join watching it while in progress. Any attempt to rewind or start watching it from the now playing list results in a black screen. I can watch it while it is live, I just cannot trickplay at all or it will hang the video. Since Boston Legal got preempted by 60/60, I have menu rebooted to see if the items will play now or not.

    After a reboot, the items that wouldn't play are not in my playlist anymore. They show as recorded, not deleted, in the history. The drive shows 65% available.

    These are the first recordings the hr20 has botched for me. I hope this is just a one time thing.

    With DoD, are there free movies and shows or do you have to pay for everything?
