    My update is now about 30 hours old, got it yesterday around 5AM. I did the double reboot deal to ensure that the cache was fully cleared and to ensure it started getting data.

    All the data seems to be there, I have full guide info out to the 18th of Dec and some a bit past that. Just no logos in quicktune.

    I'll give it another day or so and then try the reboot if they don't show up.

    It was answered on page 1. No one discussed it because it made logical sense. Sorry it's not the answer you wanted as an end-all/be-all.

    OK, let's move on. We're here to get help and help others.

    1) The rollout initially started with 0x576 and it's now 0x57B so obviously something was found/changed.

    2) A lot of customers call whenever they see something new because they want to be told how to use the new thing instead of taking time to figure it out on their own.

    ...and some people become easily confused and/or overwhelmed with anything electronic. These forums are hardly characteristic of the wider satellite user community. I have talked to many, many sat users who do not understand what the "source" or "input" button on their remote does, and why they can't see their sat box any longer, only their dvd player.

    There is every reason to believe that a new software version that presents a totally new GUI (with things in different places requiring different keystrokes), will almost certainly generate an uptick in calls...and D* needed to plan for it.

    The one point I would make is that people come here for help. If one doesn't want to help them, because they annoy you with their poorly researched question, then just don't answer it instead of berating them for not reading the entire thread. Be helpful or be quiet.

    (I'm not referring to you FL, the you above is "generic". I am actually supporting your answer.

    What DirecTV should have done is make the HDUI upgrade a demand only for the first couple months. Then the techies :D that hang out on forums like this could have been the first to experience this upgrade. Kind of like a semi-controlled beta.

    As it is, some of us that really want this upgrade have to wait for who knows how long, while others get the upgrade and don't even know or care what the hell it is.

    WE SHOULD GET IT FIRST!!! :sure: :lol:

    I noticed the "Manual Autotune" is considerably slower. The scroll speed on mine (H24-100) is much faster.

    All others in my house think it`s great.

    The new color scheme is easier to read, scroll is faster, so far no complaints and that makes it a winner with me.

    Please read the list. You'll see Dallas isn't in the list for December.

    This stinks. If its being done by market size, I probably won't see the update until this time next year. So much for getting the goods this fall.

    Quite likely you'll have it by the end of March or so.

    I like the new color scheme. The best new feature for me,is the ease of managing and deleting the caller ID list.

    I got the email yesterday informing me. For the guys who already have it, did you get the same email and about how long did it take after you got the email?

    The email goes out a short time ahead of your DMA's scheduled date. As long as your DMA's date doesn't change, you will get it on that date, regardless of when you received the email.

    IMHO they should push back the roll-out for 12/20 and 12/27.

    People are traveling and the last thing they want to find is that their box had problems and lost recordings while they were on the road.

    I just signed up yesterday (coming from Dish), I was able to get the new HR34, and I'm now sad to hear the new box doesn't have the new guide yet, any idea when the new guide will hit? Sorry if this has been asked already!

    The most current release schedule is here:

    http://forums.directv.com/pe/action/forums/displaythread?rootPostID=10975742&channelID=1&portalPageId=10472402

    If your DMA is not listed, you are not scheduled yet and will be scheduled later.

    All dates are subject to change at any time (and have).

    The general consensus here is that everyone will have by the end of March. My guess, and it's just a guess, is that everyone will have it by the end of February.
