    Is this the release everyone's been waiting on to fix some of the H34/C31 gray screen issues?

    I got it at 4:51 this morning. Receiver was on, but non responsive. Had to reboot twice.

    It's probably to early to tell, but, so far I've not had a gray screen. And I've turned my C31 off and on a bunch of times.

    Nearly impossible to tell what was and was not fixed given the lack of info Directv gives out in release notes. I've never seen another company with release notes so vague and completely non-informative.

    That is not a "bug"; it is poorly written firmware combined with poor pre-release testing and / or poor release management.

    Thanks for the upgrade. The HR34 now has a 'mode' issue with my Samsung LN52A650.

    The connection is getting better, but it keeps losing A/V frequently.

    If it not fix after three software upgrades, you can practically forget about it getting fixed. You see, only a small percentage of customers check their ToDo List, so we don't matter.

    For those that got this, a RBR (Red Button Reset) seems to have fixed the mode - no A/V issue.

    Please report back if you do. I just saw that this got released today and haven't had time yet to play around with it and try things out.

    This will probably be my best Christmas present if it really does fix the problem that we've been having!

    That issue is not limited to the To Do list. It happens in any means used to cancel a future recording; guide, smart search, ToDo, etc.

    Deletion of a recording program via its More Info still doesn't always take you back to the PlayList. Instead you are sent to the channel of the last live show you were watching.

    This is a real pain in the butt if you are watching shows from a folder midway in your PlayList.

    More Info 'View Upcoming' for all Remote Recordings on the Genie PlayList sill gives a false NONE.

    The Up & Down White Arrows or Triangles are still missing from the Genie PlayList.

    Yawn. More half-baked software.

    C31 would only show gray screen, or just the clock in corner, or messed up guide over gray background. Had to reboot HR34 after C31 red button reset didn't help.

    Just got this release last night. So far only change I've noticed is the guide is much slower now. Much slower.

    KJK in CT, new software repopulates the Guide. Give it 24 hours before judging the unit's speed. What you are experiencing can happen in the meantime.

    True to form, it is a real downgrade. Please bring back the SD GUI
