Well, hopefully they WILL learn from the previous debacle and ensure that the code is properly tested and sound before releasing it. However, since the release has already been promised for "October", that will put the pressure on to release it by then regardless.


Next month some of us may see it in the top secret testing phase. :D

Promised? I wouldn't go that far.

Oh god, let's not get into a semantics battle here. It has been publically announced for October. Whether you consider that a promise or not is irrelevant.

Count me in. I read all the "fixed" replies, but I kept seeing no significant improvement. I just refreshed this thread and was "happy" to see that it came back to life, that it wasn't just me.

Yep. Problem is back here too. Wife is chirping in my ear to get new boxes. But I like the HR20, because of the OTA antenna, don't know what I would receive if I asked for a new one.

I would hope so if they expect an October timeframe.

I also hope that those that get to fiddle with it first and assuming it really does improve speed, that they don't get all bubbly as all too many do with previous updates that were going to speed things up, that not only didn't make things faster, made them slower. This from a bit back.

That said, my newly installed HR24s are pretty darned speedy, with only an occasional pause (to catch their breath I suppose... :lol: ). But I would like to see a guide with at least a 3 hour window...

You could always get an AM21. However, the other box could very well have the same problem. Even if it doesn't, it could have this problem in the future. Bottom line is, it's a waste of time to replace your receiver because of this problem.

I got a hr20 and hr21, The hr20 is a good bit faster than the hr21. The lack of response on the unit has been driving me crazy at times.

Along with the HD GUI, they'll be implementing major foundational changes that reflect what they've learned along the way. That's where the performance improvements will come from.

It's much more than a new GUI, it's basically a new DVR.


It is much more than a New GUI but also New DVR Software Optimized for Speed and Efficiency!!! :D

Well all I can tell you is that I've heard from multiple independent sources, who have actually used the HD GUI, that the performance is significantly improved. I completely understand your pessimism, but I have no reason to doubt what I've been told.


I Concur Wholeheartedly that those who have tested it say that it is a Total Improvement in Speed and Performance!!! :)

I remember wshen all the new HD channels were being launched a few years ago and it was always they will be available soon.

But wghat does soon really mean it can span many different time frames based on the project . Making an ice cream cone could be done real soon but launching a satellite t6akes years to build and when you get down to the last 3-6 months well that could be seen as soon.

Anyways I hate the word soon qas there is no deffinete time frame
