    Earl, any info/details on the release notes items? Some are self-explanatory (the CC stuff), but what did they improve WRT Parental Controls, or Trickplay?

    I am not sure what they enhanced with Parental Controls (waiting for an explanation).

    They improved the video images during Trickplay and also the "jump" actions.

    Do they ever give you any details about some of the fixes? For example, many people have problems with recordings being cancelled, and this release says that it will be more reliable.

    I'm just curious about what was causing some of my Center Ice and Sunday Ticket recordings to fail.

    I guess it's the programmer in me.

    The closed captioning stuff isn't self-explanatory to me. I need to see it (or have someone see it) and confirm that letters and words are no longer cut off, and that the TIMING issue has been taken care of.

    Can anyone who has seen the new update speak to these issues?

    I guess what I meant was "Closed Caption Text Accuracy" is more descriptive than "Trickplay Playback" or "Improvements to Parental Controls."

    Is it early 2007 already? Man, where does the time go? A few days ago I was putting up my Christmas tree. Now I'm waiting for the OTA update to make it to my neck of the woods.

    Oh... wait a minute... :D

    Don't bother forcing...it's West coast only for now...should reach East coast early next week...they are going slowly, and Earl says the feedback they get from Westies over the weekend will determine the speed of the rollout to follow.

    Got the update this morning. Local off-the-air HD channels look fine. So far this release seems to work (dare I say it?) perfectly.

    My faith in the programmers at DirecTV is kinda restored.

    Sometimes it's VERY NICE to live on the west coast.
