    After seeing all the problems reported in the CE forum, I think it's better to wait for the national release to download.

    I'm beginning to understand why it's a s---l---o---w rollout.

    I would if I could.

    I'm usually off to NH on Friday night through Sunday night. The last time I was home on a weekend was for the 9/14 - 9/15 CE.

    I received the update on about Oct. 25 (Denver).

    DoD is cool, but downloads seem slow, even with fast DSL, and no HD programming available yet. There is a TON of SD programming available.

    0x18a is the national release for the HR20-700.

    What is the problem you are having that you want to go back for?

    0x1B4 CE is no longer available and won't go national. This thread should be closed. The latest which has already passed for CE is 0x1B9, and that was available only last Friday & Saturday by forced download. 0x18A is the latest for mainstream users who don't want CE.

    So, does that mean DOD is no longer being rolled out nationally?

    The current national 0x18A has networking active, if you can networking on your HR unit, you can get Video OnDemand or what you call DOD. You don't need CE for that. If the HR can get on the web to get the stream which the 0x18A allows, then your good to go.

    Correct...for some reason which, unfortunately, no one has tole me yet, D* stopped distributing this release, and we still are without DOD. Which brings me to my next question...


    Is D* still going to live up to their promise and release DOD for everyone by the 31st? Earl or anyone else with close ties to D*: Do you know what's going on?!?!

    You can get Video OnDemand/DOD with 0x18a and the next CE release coming up, and the last CE release 0x19B allows for VOD/DOD. You have to network your HR to get it.

    What about if I don't want to do CE's...?

    D* promised to release DOD to the public by October 31st...doesn't look like that's going to happen, huh...

    I don't believe you need the CE, if you have your HR networked and have the national 0x18A, then you should be able to get VOD/DOD now with that firmware (0x18A), since it permits networking in the setup menus.

    I have 0x1B4 and it is not a CE release. I also have DoD and Music and Pictures up and running. Someone asked for a screenshot and I have no idea how to do that unles I took a picture with the digital camera - but the wife has it and she won't be back until Thursday night.

    Did they pull the release? Will D* try to roll me back? I have no issues with 0x1B4

    0x1B4 is a CE release, the mainstream is 0x18a (current national) which is older not newer than 0x1B9 which was last Friday/Saturdays CE release. DirecTV is making sure no bugs are in the latest before releasing it nationally. If your running networking now, you can get VOD/DOD so it proves you don't need CE. If it's working with 0x18A for VOD/DOD than why bother with a force download of any other. It's likely the new national will have a higher hex. So expect higher than 0x1B9 for national release.

    0x1B4 came as a push from D* on Wed. 10/24 at 1:24am Rocky Mountain no DST time.

    I have never participated in the CE program.
