    Getting any version you shouldn't, then reverting to NR can cause it, but generally that doesn't happen automatically. It has in rare cases like the 8000 issue.

    Of course if the drive was already on the edge of failing, an update could be the last straw.

    Bakersfield is up and running.

    My remote/box are actually working well together!

    I hope this new responsiveness lasts.

    Woke up this morning and was greeted by the HDGUI (in the San Francisco market). I like it! :)

    This morning in Monterey-Salinas, CA area as scheduled. Looks good. I did teak the color to dark grey instead of black. Moved slow at first, but HDUI got faster as you played around with it. I'm liking. :D

    Won't 'tweaking' your TV by using the new guide potentially throw off your TV's calibration for the rest of your viewing? It sounds like you nerfed your blacks just to change the way the guide looks to you.

    I just tweaked the setting of the HDUI on the HR reciever. It gives you the options of "grey, dark grey or black" for the guide. I saw this option in the display menu by accident. :grin:

    Got the update in San Jose today. The Directv subtitles/CC are HD now, did not expect that and it's very nice! :)

    Yes DirecTV subtitles look better but there seems to be a bug. After staying tuned to one channel for a while with subtitles on, the characters become corrupted and illegible. It looks like the bottom half of the characters get cut off for each line. This has happened for all my HR20s so it must be the new software. Changing channels for a moment fixes it for a while.

    Did it in fact change the look of the Guide itself? I tried to duplicate what you did, but could change only the sidebars as are displayed when tuned to an SD channel.
    Could you post the menu steps, please?

    TIA

    Is the channel HD or SD?
    I'll have to try out the subtitles some more later today. I have Native on for our tv and default directv subtitle settings I think. Not sure if that affects the garbled-ness.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't, in that they use the same feed, and the DIRECTV® one is just a custom made CC.

    HD channel, native on, DirecTV subtitles on. I'm watching 206 ESPNHD right now and it's happening.

    I think I see why this post confused me earlier. He's obviously talking about the pillar bars. I just got home and tried to find the setting for the guide, but of course, there is none.

    Unless he has a later version.......

    And if he does, I hope he posts the version he has.........
