    If you were watching the receiver at the time, I believe you could have rejected the download this time. A "non-response" is equivalent to an "OK," though.

    but its not a single issue...the release notes say its for:

    New On-Screen Displays to warn when there is no Advanced Program Guide Data

    Improved/Updated:
    Stability
    UI polishing
    Improvements to hard drive check at bootup
    Performance improvements while using MediaShare

    I don't know where you got those release notes, but they're not addressing the changes that were made in the two versions that were released today.

    I suppose those release notes are applicable to the people who still had 2af, since I'm guessing that what we're getting now is was was in the very slowly deploying NR from last week, plus a fix for whatever happened last night.

    Or is what we're getting now simply 2af content again, with a fix for what happened last night, but without all the features that were in the NR that started going out in the last week?

    If you got 2B0, that's what you got. It's the same as 2AF. If you got 2CB, then you got the newest NR, with all of the stuff from 2CA.

    Now why in the world would they put the fix into the old release and jam that out in the middle of the day, rather than put it into the newer NR, and then come around again in the next week or two and give me the new NR? Unless of course the new NR they were putting out had a problem, which would explain why its releasing so slowly.

    If you got 02b0, then that appears to be just a patch of 02af. The tuner 2 issue is addressed in 02ca/02cb. We'll just have to wait as the progressive rollout works its way from west to east. We know thatr D* can slamdunk a release to everyone in an hour or so, but the progressive release must be to allow customer support the address issues over a longer period and not get too overwelmed all at once.

    This is what I surmise anyway. D* plays their cards very close to the chest. The old IT data center concept that if the customer doesn't know there has been a problem, then the customer is happy happy.

    One of my HRx's (hr21-100) did not get the update today.

    The todo list is gone and my primetime recordings missed.

    2CB came down on both receivers around 5:30 EST. Neither one of us even knew since we didn't turn the TV on until 6 or so. Everything working fine as far as we can tell.

    Wife called me up to tell me that our ToDo list was empty and that all shows in the Prioritizer had 0 upcoming episodes. I had her check the version number and I am still at 0x2CA, which I downloaded during the CE process on 01/31. Anyone else have their ToDo list wiped without getting a download? Or did I really get 0x2CB, but the Info page for some reason did not update correctly?

    I have a R22-100.

    Yes, my ToDo list was wiped with no download. I had to manually add back in all the upcoming recordings. Unfortunately, I missed half of tonights Americal Idol before I figured out what was going on.

    No idea.
    That didn't seem to be the case, because my HR20-700 was update to 2CA at 3:30 this morning.

    How long is it stuck? It sometimes takes a little longer than you might expect.
