    The Q should be - why is the TIVO GUI SD in this age of HD?

    It was promised for Raleigh/Durham today, and it in fact arrived today. So far so good, though I haven't really tested it yet.

    Yes, the part where they cut out a bunch of us (me included) is a bummer. :(

    A co-worker of mine is in the Raleigh Durham DMA and he had gotten an email about the update. I am in Greensboro DMA and was hoping to get it too this week but no go so far.

    Greensboro DMA here too. Didn't Charlotte get it last week? And Raleigh got it today. Feels like they just skipped right over us! Oh, wait, they did.

    All in due time, I suppose.

    Many of us have been watching HDTV on Directv for 4+ years now and had to live with the blocky, standard definition GUI for that time while other DVR solutions, like Windows Media Center and standalone Tivo have had a proper HD GUI for years.

    Just seemed like a poor implementation to have a nice new HDTV picture only to have a blocky, some say "Atari" type GUI to placed on top.

    Compared to many alternatives - it's pretty decent (recently tried the Comcast SD GUI - it's literally changes to 4:3 and looks like something from the 90's). I honestly didn't have a problem with the current interface - and I would consider myself quite the nerd. I guess I'm not sold on the "darkness" - the HD GUI looks to have a lot of black and dark colors.

    I will not judge until I get it though :)

    If they bring this at the same rate they brought HD-LILs, for us here in the Monterey/Salinas DMA it'll be...NEVER.

    Perhaps not the right place to ask this question, but I am considering adding an additional receiver (an H25 for our bedroom). Buying it off of Amazon most likely. Denver is expected to get the HDUI on the 21st. If I get the receiver in my house, installed and activated AFTER the 21st, would I get the HDUI downloaded to it automatically? If so, when? If not automatic, would I be able to force a download? Could I do that at anytime after the 21st (well, after the Denver DMA gets the HDUI)?

    Yes, you would get it the next time the unit looks for an upgrade once your area has already received the update.

    Only problem I have is when I hit pause I lose nearly half the screen. For some reason the background for the timeline is pitch black and covers a good part of the screen up.

    Is anyone else having this issue?

    Shouldn't have to. No phone line or internet connection requirements or anything, and all the HD DVR models will be getting it (though HR34 will start later.)
