    For what it's worth, my R22-200 got 0x029B overnight as well (checked from work via Slingbox). My other units are HR2x-700's. I will check them at home tonight.

    P.S. Doug, you might want to edit the body of your first post (refers to 0x0290). The subject has the correct version number.

    There are no new features added between 0x290 and 0x29B .. Just some under the hood updates.

    So, maybe they had to push it a tad early to correct the guide data lockups and then they got the last few fixes in to deal with lockups some are reporting (and some video stutter and audio maybe)?

    Ah-hah. Was noticing some audio stutter the past few evenings; but, laid it off to usually-reliable experience - which meant our local network outlet was being klutzy.

    I'll check and see if it's still there on the same channels, tonight.

    Mine locked up last night around 815pm. I started a show while it was still recording and it wouldn't let me FF or Rewind. I did a RBR and it was fixed. I missed the end of MY Name is Earl though.

    As long as it doesnt land on an adult channel it doesnt bug me much. Wife turn on the TV and its on Playboy and we may have an issue. Epsec the R16 in the kids room.

    Has DirecTV's update policy changed?

    At one time they were staggered, west-to-east, and everyone got them at 3AM or so.

    Now, it seems unpredictable.

    Has this rollout already happened, will it be staggered, or will at happen at 6:15 p.m. Eastern time like the last one?

    Not sure what you are referring to by this .. perhaps softpad is making use of the foreground tuner which is possible when you are in standby.

    He may be talking about the occasional random change to a blank or PPV channel overnight that some of us had been seeing. Seems to be happening less-frequently on my 6 DVR's, even without 0x029b. Haven't noticed it at all this week. /steve

    Did this fix the low volume level that's been on the HD channels since the last software update?

    My HR21-100 had this issue again this morning. The annoying part is that the currently highlighted action is "buy now", so if you inadvertently hit select while you have the blank screen you may have just purchased a PPV you have no interest in...

    I wonder if it really will buy the PPV, because it seems like the receiver is not really on the program it says it is. I have been tempted to try it just to see what happens if you do select Buy.





    And Doug, this is what we are talking about. http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=144302

    It has also been discussed in the 290 issues thread.

    Media share screwed up the song order in albums. It's not even alphabetical, it's just scrambled. I also noticed that it is reading the tags wrong. Some songs are showint up with the track number in the tag, whereas others are not (I always rip with the track number in the tag).

    ...what I've seen since 0290 is that I usually leave my HR-21 700 set on TWC (362). In the past when I turn it back on it would still be on TWC. Since 0290, it seems to jump around (after I shut it down) and end up on XM, adult, etc. Weird.

    BTW...this unit has only one tuner (line) active. My other unit (same HR) has 2 lines and seems to be OK.:confused:
