    Heh, I was in the same boat, my wife despised not so much the speed of our HR20-100 but it's ineptitude at executing number presses and channel changes properly and consistently(I despise the issue even more then she does). What saved me was getting an HR24 in place of the HR20. No more slowness and now consistent channel changes.

    I keep doing these software downloads and evey time I hope that Directv has seen the light and realized that the box, if nothing else, should do simple channel changes properly and consistently(ie. no more enter 265 and get ...2...6... "Channel Not Available"... 5 and the channel changes to channel 5 :mad: ) BUT... to no avail. The slowness and channel change issues have remained time and time again.

    I have 040c on my HR20-100(now in the bedroom) and it didn't change anything with regard to speed and consistency... yet again.

    My HR20-700 updated early this morning. Contrary to some reports, I did not lose my analog outputs. Thankfully, they still work just like before.

    Mine is always the first button press, then the others carry over. So 265 ends up 2 channel not available, then 65.

    I would try for an H24 if I didn't have to reup. I keep my setup ready to swap providers on a whim. All rooms have dual RG6 Quad Shielded, and 2 CAT5E drops, so to switch is a minor downtime nothing more.

    AM21 update. I ordered the am21 from DTV for $50. I called and talked to an agent and he said tech should have asked if I had an OTA receiver and both of mine did. HE SAID THEY ARE SUPPOSSED to replaced with it with like receiver, but they didn't. They gave me an HR24-100 and a HR24-500 and should have gotten 2 am21 He said he would see about getting me a free am21 and credit me for one I bought. Waiting for reply now. They have been very good to deal with anytime I've call. I told him I would still keep the paid one without a credit if they gave me a free am21. He said he would he wanted them both free and will try to.Can't beat that!

    Twelve hours since software update. Receiver response time slightly faster. Favorite Channel logos have returned. TV Apps, VOD, Customer Information Channel and Active Channel are working again. QuickTune is working but logos have not returned. Parental Advisory feature still missing. No Cast and Crew info available. Will give these another twenty four hours to return before taking action.

    I've always used 30 second skip (not 30 second slip) on my HR21, and with this release I noticed that after I skip ahead, the audio "speeds up" for a second or two before playing at a normal rate again. This is through the optical output. This is a little annoying, and it wasn't happening before.

    Any one else seeing this issue?

    I finally got it this morning. I was disappointed to see it didn't fill in the missing logos of all of the new HD channels we got this year. Looks crappy without them.

    So, what is taking the place of the real estate where the time used to be? So far, nothing appears to occupy that space, no matter what screen I'm on.

    It's starting to show up now. I guess it just took a day or so for the guide to fill the gaps.

    Sorry if this has been brought up. If you highlight the channel and hit "info" for the vertical show listing, the clock returns to it's old position, and the art appears just to the left of the show description. This looks more natural. Has this been documented, or am I late to the party as usual? Right now my clock is jumping all over the place!

    Parental Advisory has returned. Graphics appear for programs in the playlist and guide. Had to manually reset QuickTune to get logos back. Still no Cast and Crew info.

    It typically takes 24-36 hours for all the guide data, thumbnails, cast & crew info and smart search indexing to complete.

    And once it completes, try not to purposely reboot twice within an hour, otherwise most, if not all, of that data gets cleared and the process has to start all over again.

    AM21 working ok on HR24-500. Only problem I had is the IP addresses were changed. Had to reload them and everything ok. The only issue I have with the 500 is the play-list. I have selected first run only but it'S recording older programs. Any issues with that?

    If it's just one, that's a known issue. The DVR always records the first episode (the one that you set up the series link with), whether it matches the first run/repeat selection.

    If it's recording more than one, check your recording defaults under manange recordings. It is probably set to default to both, where you may have changed your old box to default to first run. So, you may not be setting the series links up like you think you are.

    After an update you really need to allow 24+ hours to see any speed improvements, especially with this update. The unit needs to have time to index the new guide data, get the cast and crew info, the parental info and the cover art.

    All systems are back to normal. Cast and Crew info has returned. Rough start with a happy ending.

    So sounds like it was somewhere between 24 and 36 hours, which is pretty typical.

    Which model was it, BTW? I'd expect the 24's to finish the indexing a little faster than the older models. And at least in theory, the indexing goes a little faster if you keep the units in standby when you're not using them.
