It's interesting that no one has posted videos about how slow their receivers are. I'd really like to see the 10-15+ channel changes, 30 second guide loads, etc.


If my word, as an established member of these forums from before Santa on the HR20-700 is not acceptable, then I have nothing further to contribute.

I tried getting video on it a couple of times, but my SD card filled up before the channel finally changed. :P

I just cleaned up a bunch of crap, whining, and just plain thread crapping.

KEEP ON TOPIC. BE RESPECTFUL. BE CIVIL.

Infractions and thread bans are next.

No one believed those of us without these "horrible" slow downs, so a couple of us provided video. I respect your posts, but it's not personal.

Such a hilarious jokester. :rolleyes:
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I received the latest update on my HR 20 / 100 and I'm pleased to report that my beloved DVR has been restored to it's former self. :) The only oddity was the need to cold boot the DVR because it was unresponsive even to button pushes after the download (discovered it the following day). I was then greeted with the message that whole-home had been activated on my receiver. All of my previous resolutions and settings were untouched.

I get the list now in under two seconds, deletes from list are instant, in general everything is restored.

Nice job with this one...couldn't be more pleased.

Setup links in sigs can be illuminating. :cuttle:

I actually wish more would put them, would make troubleshooting easier, if they are up to date.

Folks, this thread has just plain gone on too long.

Firmware 05c9 is rolling out now. If it doesn't fix your receiver issues then please post in the issues and discussion thread.

There is nothing wrong with ranting or complaining but when you start turning on each other, infractions will be issued and threads closed.

Such as, this one.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.
