I would have never imagined 3D is more important than audio dropouts. I don't understand why audio dropouts are not the sole priority receiver update instead of all these other extracurricular things. We certainly have countless DBSTALK users and D* subs with this issue; but yet we have no solution or even talk of amelioration.

The extracurricular things sell the service...

Not the answer you want, but why alse would they not have a fix.

Wow, now I can play MP3s from MediaShare. I could never do that before. I always had an X by the track in the listing but that changed to musical notes and now it can play smoothly. How come it's only now working with this update? I thought people had it going before. Anyways, it's nice.

R22 can be used as an HD DVR if you have HD Access on your account.

It's now native on MediaShare .. Previously the media server on the PC would transcode it to a supported format. Now MP3 is supported directly.

I disagree -- most people own a television for the visual and audio. If you can't hear it what's the point? Oh but hey, we have a common sense media program listing extracurricular coming -- you're right who needs audio when we have common sense coming. Priorities is the answer. It's a simple process -- step one is to have video and audio. Focus on the basics and then the sky is the limit. Why do I even have to say this? Who is running the engineering department? This is as bad as if a high-watt radio station had audio problems/dropouts but does nothing about it.. How about a new feature called Common Sense Audio where.....wait for it...... no more audio dropouts....WOW -- it sounds like a goldmine. I'm befuddled on this one. You need lemons with lemonade right? What's hard to understand about this issue?

Thanks! I've been holding onto a CE for about 6 months now.

Well I hope something happens soon. I guess we have been taking seamless audio for granted.

Hmm, none of the documented features interest me much but I still don't like being ignored as an HR20 owner.

HR20 owners aren't being ignored, it's just not in the stream yet.

With the last NR it started streaming for the HR20 first and HR21's, etc, later.

Does the Directv 3D require a 3D ready TV? If so will it only work with the new 3D ready TVs or will it also work with the older DLP 3D ready TVs (checkerboard format).
If it requires the newer 3D ready TVs that implies that this FW is updating the HDMI to 1.4. If it is 1.4 then the 3D will not work if passing the HDMI thru an A/V receiver or HDMI switch that is not 1.4 (same issues as with the 3D blu-ray players)

The person that was demo'ing this at CES said that it required a TV with HDMI 1.4 but he could not answer any of my follow up questions.
