    Just got my wmail yesterday. How long are people typically waiting after the email? Is it any indicator at all?

    You are sure all of the output settings are correct and that it is outputting an HD signal in the first place correct? The problem with setting things up like that with generators of that nature is that they're producing signals that are different from what your sources are producing therefore just because it's perfectly aligned for that signal generator doesn't mean in any way shape or form that'll necessarily look good with another source. You need to calibrate each input for the actual source.

    I've gotten the DTV mail message twice but am not scheduled to get the update until 1/24.

    I think qoncept is referring to an actual email, not the TV Mail. I think some have said they've gotten the update 5 or 6 days after the email but I also got an actual email today & we aren't scheduled until the 19th.

    If you also meant a true email rather than TV Mail, then my apologies for misunderstanding :).

    You are correct. I was referring to the TV mail. I think others have gotten the TV mail and thought that meant the update was imminent. This is of course not the case. And thanks for being so nice with your response. Very refreshing . :)

    Also, while I did get the new HD UI, "My DirecTV" and browse "All Movies" does not work. "All Movies" says it's updating and I should check back in an hour. It has been saying that for five days. "My DirecTV" just says check back later. I've restarted the box a couple of times, but that doesn't help.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Stuff like that happens when you force an update when you shouldn't.

    Do you have access to anything in the Extras portion? If not it sounds like the additional software didn't get downloaded.

    Yes, the extras work fine.

    I didn't know that I shouldn't force an update. I didn't even know I could force an update until someone on this thread suggested it. One of my receivers already had the update and I was told that my other receiver should have already gotten it. It was suggested that forcing an update was a fix for it. That's all the info on forcing an update I had.

    In any case, since forcing is bad, can I revert to a previous version?

    Thanks

    Same method 0-2-4-6-8 at first sign of blue screen after doing a Menu/Settings/Reset

    The key is knowing what's in the stream when you do the above.

    There is always a risk when you force something to your box unless you know exactly what you are doing, and even if you do it is not risk free. I've repeated that several times in this thread.

    Having said that, we'll help here as much as we can if you have problems.

    three 24-700s and a 500 here and I noticed a significant improvement in UI performance. thats the good part. But my question is this: what human factors engineer / UI designer with a lick of sense would specify white on black? its horrible and fatiguing. apparently they didn't consider kindles, e-books, real books, real magazines, e-zines, virtually all web content intended to be read...

    I don't see it in the guide right now either. Sometimes they only show it once a month or so, then other times its on every other weekend. You just have to keep your eye out for it.

    Amen to the white on black. I already called to complain. Hope we get a choice of color schemes in an update.

    It's not "on black". It's quite grey, and eminently readable. Some are finding a set adjustment is needed, but yours is probably calibrated already.
