    Yes, welcome to the fun of the new UI. The Slingbox problem you have is the only bummer about the new UI. I have had the UI in CE for a while, and I ended up ditching my slingbox classsic (that I bought the day it came out!) and replaced it with a Solo (when they were on sale for $89 a few weeks ago). The solo plugs into the component outputs of the DVR, and even though it doesn't stream HD, it does take the 1080i output, and can display it. This fixed the problem for me. I don't remember if the Pro has component inputs or not. If it does use them, and the problem will go away.
    The issue is that the HDUI is HD only, and does not output in SD. I guess that new EXIT button thing at least helps you get by (by outputting everything to 480i).

    From what's on their installer forum, the Cleveland DMA could be as soon as tomorrow. Not saying everyone will get it tomorrow or all boxes, but as a start.

    You guys were guinea pigs to measure the calls to DirecTV about the new HDGUI.

    For my curiosity, what software version are you running? The last CC that's is now the HDGUI NR are 0x057B & 0x457B.

    If the Atlanta area just got on the list, does that mean the Orlando area might be coming soon? Or is it completely random?

    It's been said several times in this thread that they are going by DMA.

    Yes, you did. But, it doesn't cross reference with the DMA's that have received the new GUI. I suppose I could do it my self. My DMA is 157 so I guess I'll see the HD GUI some time in February.:lol:
