    While I do not have one myself, based on previous reports, it will be interesting to see how HR22 users report on this new National release.

    In the past, there were some performance "issues" apparently, and this release should show some noticable signs of improvement along those lines.

    Its obvious what some of these features and improvements are, but some are not so obvious - can anyone explain what some of these are? I saw a YouTube video about DoublePlay which was very helpful, but I can't find specifics on these other features. Thanks in advance.

    New features

    * TVMail
    * Live Extension

    Improved/Updated

    * 1080p/24 TV compatibility
    * Series Link deletion from To Do List
    * Conflict Information on To Do List

    We'll have a better set of documentation up later today, but quickly ..

    TVMail is basically the messages that you access via your DIRECTV remote.

    Live Extension is a feature that prompts you to add more time when setting up a recording of a live program (Football, American Idol, etc.)

    1080p/24 TV compatibility basically means that some sets that may have been having problems will work correctly now with 1080p programming.

    Series link deletion from To Do List .. pretty much what it says here. Previously you could not delete a series link from the To Do List. You had to go to the prioritizer to do this.

    Conflict Information on To Do List .. There is more detailed information provided in the To Do List when there is a conflict. If, for example, you were scheduled to record 3 programs at the same time (impossible with only 2 tuners), then it should now be even more clear as to why that third program is not recording.

    You can "play" 2 programs at the same time and toggle between the two of them. If you are familiar with Dual live Buffers, This is what DoublePlay is. I even know who came up with that name :D :p.

    Who knows they don't release specifics about each issue they just give information on what aspects they have changed but not what changed for each item.

    Typically those are performance improvements and minor User Interface cleanup and enhancements.

    Wow guys! DLB finally? I don't believe it.... Its been such a long wait, and just in time for football season. Live extensions is another goodie that I will be happy to have. I get so pissed when recording baseball and miss the 9th inning in a close game!

    When we finally get it. I called the VP of CS's office this morning and they dont have anything on this software build lol. I found that hard to believe since there are people with the build already. Thats pretty abnormal.

    Why would you call the VP of CS's office to ask what's in the release? Is the information provided here not enough?

    I personally have mostly given up on any areas at DirecTV which formally interact with the public being on top off the latest happenings and disseminating technically accurate information on their systems and pretty much have to rely on forums like this one or SatelliteGuys nowadays.

    To me it seems the technical people who really know what's going on at DirecTV do not answer phones, e-mails, or post to internet discussion groups with the public.
