Well it is only easy if you like to get up really early in the morning...
I will also say it's not worth the risk, over and over I have to spend time to help folks privately to get their receivers back to the old UI because they thought they knew what they were doing.
PLEASE just wait it out. Too many people will say how easy it is but don't really know the risks because it worked for them.
Yes and it downloaded as per the list.
But there's more fun for us when they don't.
Yes. It can take 48 or more hours for all the "other" stuff to download, like the extended ratings, posters, etc.
Some peoples fun takes a couple of days to fix, helping people do something they don't fully understand isn't help at all. I suppose it's fun when you are not the one that has to help fix it.
Apparently it's a real barrel of monkeys when you can just point someone in a direction and watch the train wreck happen. Goes along with just re-posting others info, or just outright bad info. Fun times for all for sure. :eek2:
Maybe I'm just weird, but for me it's fun helping people fix their problems, even ones they create themselves.
The more we fix, the more we learn.
I'm in no big hurry to get it, although I am looking forward to having it. In my twisted way of thinking, the later downloads might just be of an improved version. (Not to say there is anything wrong with the current version.) Probably wrong about that, but I can always hope.
You are correct, since the NR has changed versions once already. I wonder how the 0x0576 get updated as in when to the 0x57B.
i dont know if it was mentioned somewhere here on these 11 pges...is this user interface for DVR customers only? or both DVR and NON DVR hd boxes?
March??? Hell, doesn't spring start in March? What a crock. I guess when they said coming this fall, I should have asked fall, what year.
All HD receivers except the H20 & TiVo. HR34 will eventually have the HDUI.
I was being conservative. It's very possible to have it much sooner, but Stuart did mention some may see snow melting before they get it.
It did start going to customers in fall, just not everyone.
Im curious. I get the whole reason behind a slow rollout, but after rolling for full month, does that not give Directv a large enough sample size to be able to say "ok everything works"? Cant imagine they would get a large number of calls just be cause it looks different.
Or....am I just assuming too much because mine happens to work.
I personally think there are some minor things they are still working on.
You'd be surprised. I'm sure there are a lot of customers that call and want to be walked through the new look and feel.
Not really. That first month of 0x0576 only went to employees and the Las Vegas DMA. (My guess in order to meet the promise release date made by marketing.) The general rollout of 0x057B only just started last Tuesday morning.
DirecTV has an engineering department that is always working on their software.
