    Try a reset everything, since "it works fine on my H20-100", which is only to say that the software can't be all of your problem.

    I guess I've been using the CE versions for so long that I've been de-sensitized. I find it to be a great upgrade to 100C.

    I know your feeling, I am still running 0x2021 CE, but getting kind of impatient for the stretch problem to go away, on my active channels and RSNs. It has been here for the last 2 or 3 CEs. Baseball season is rolling along and those players all look short and fat with the video locked in stretch mode.

    I will stick with the CEs for another one, in hopes it will be corrected, but during those games I am tempted to reload 100C.

    While you may be tempted, you may also find 0x2020 instead.

    After the upgrade here in LA Cali I had problems with my original Direct TV H20 remote. My main remote is my 880 Universal. I know that one uses IR. Before the update, I could always use my H20 remote which was set to IF. I read on here that both modes worked before the change, but now its either or. So I had to set my H20 to IR also to get that as a fall back now.

    How problematic is doing this? I've never done a complete reset with the H20.

    Since there are no recordings, for me it's a piece of cake.
    I have to go through the setup guide [does this automatically] and then my favorite channel list [which I think takes more time then the setup guide].
    With the recorder, you lose your recordings and series links, etc.
    There just doesn't seem to be that much in the non-DVR receiver compared, so seems a no brainier [or maybe that's just my state of mind].

    So there aren't any satellite re-setups or things like that? I just didn't want to do anything where I'd have to call into DTV customer service and go through a whole reactivation process.

    You might need to pick which dish you have and enter your zip code.
    I've never needed to call D* to reactivate my receiver after doing this several times.
    The authorization info is already in the D* data base and so is in the SAT feed.

    Thank you for the advice; did the complete reset and the H20 now runs much faster. Still not as good as before the "upgrade" (scrolling in the guide is still jerky), but worlds better than before the reset. Response time with the remote is actually bearable again.

    I received the software update for my H20-100 here in Rhode Island at 3:44 this morning. I notice the slight delay when I use the guide, but so far that has not really bothered me. I'm sure that it will though. Other than that everything else seems to be fine. I have not watched much tv this morning though. The best this is that I do get a "searching for satellite signal" on channel 499 and my signal strengths are much higher on I think 110 and definitely 119.

    MY HDMI out still don't work, showing "no signal found" on my tv any suggestions? Just checked signal strength, why is it showing a signal on 99. Didn't think that it was active yet????

    Same thoughts as myself! I still have channels listed on my Custom 1 list that are not selected when I reset everything.
    Oh well....

    Same exact phenomena here in RI as well. Signal strengths which had been in the 70s I believe are now between 90 and 100 across the board.

    I do miss the speed of the other guide, but it's good to know I'm ready for the MPEG4 roll out :)

    Recieved the update at 3:42AM today as well. I now have 2021. I'll be testing HDMI tonight when I get home from work.

    Weirdness...I have my standard-def settings fixed to "Pillarboxed," but on a few channels it ends up being "Stretched" regardless.

    For example, if I go to MSNBC, it's in the proper pillarboxed format.

    If I switch to NESN (623) or YES (622) or some of the other sports channels, it's stretched...what gives?

    EDIT: Apparently it's an issue with the software. Frankly I think this update basically sucks -- and those sound effects? What were they thinking?!?! (I had to turn them off after they wouldn't stop once i changed the channel!).

    Does anyone know if it has made it to SC yet??? I'm at work and will not be able to check until later this afternoon..

    Thanks

    Just got back from lunch.....and I do have the update. Didn't have time to check out much but this is what I do know. The update set my receiver to RF for the remote and mine is IR so I had to use the front panel to change it back. When viewing the single line guide (Blue button), if you are watching the same channel that the guide is showing, SELECT does not work. You must use the exit button.
