Is this another staggered rollout? I still haven't gotten the last staggered rollout on any of my HRs. Still on 0X59F.

I'm assuming this is to replace the previous Staggered Release that started on 4/23/2012 (0x45C8 - H21/23, 0x05C8 for all other receivers) due to the problems it was having?

Question?? Why are the release notes so vague?

What is this release going to be like? Is it stable?

That would explain why mine are stuck back with a March release.

Still waiting for new NR firmware on the HR20-700, HR21-100, HR20-100. The H21-200 got new firmware over a week ago. (it didn't much need it as far as speed/sluggishness goes).

So...we wait to see if a replacement for 0x59e makes it this far, any time in the near future, so we can evaluate whether or not the sluggishness/speed issues have been improved for the above boxes or not.

My HR20-700 has been on the NR firmware 0x59e since February 8, this year.

My guess is that Directv got the message that their FW development process is in trouble and now they are trying to clean up the mess and do some slow release to get feedback.

I got 5c8 on 4/25, never got 5cb, and got 5cd last night. With 5c8 and 5cd the speed is improved but they introduced the resolution bug that cannot be present in a NR. In addition 5cd seem to have made the remote response worse. From some quick test I get a lot of bounce keys and a lot of missed keys.

So, nothing to worry if you are still on the old NR. You do not miss anything a part some new set of problems. At least they seem to have learn one lesson: do not send a bugged release to all the customers. Pity that most are still stuck on a very buggy 59f.

Another new firmware update? Hope it does not make my HR20-100 worse. It's finally performing great with the firmware update it got a few weeks ago. No more SLOW issues. The only thing that's sluggish now is scrolling horizontally across the guide but not a big deal.

<much snipped>

Pity that most are still stuck on a very buggy 59f.


The biggest problem with 0x59e (which is what I have been stuck on since February 8th), is how sluggish/slow it can be to bring up various screens and respond to channel change requests. Buggy isn't the problem, the fact that trying to use HR20/21/22/23 series boxes (at least the ones I have), has become tedious at best, and downright unpleasant at worst.

So, I would welcome the newer versions finally making it as far east as Iowa, so we can evaluate whether the speed/sluggishness issues for these older HR boxes has been resolved (or at least improved), or not.

I don't have any theories. I'm just very dissatisfied with the performance of these boxes, and have been witnessing their degeneration for over a year.

Once again I am going to ask...

Is this release stable?

Or will I be scolded by not using the CE forum.

Really some of you should know this...and again why are the release notes so vague.

probably a scolding :) I quit doing CE's close to a year ago. I was very happy with the way things were and didn't feel like messing things up. Wish they left the older boxes alone before HD GUI. I was doing some work with the IP control stuff a while back and they pulled that away too.

It is not. Might be making the receivers faster (too soon to say) but introduces other bugs. In my opinion it is just another wide testing release.

HR24-200 currently with 0x5cb.

The last three mornings, the box had been unresponsive to commands from the remote or front panel. The only thing that brings it back to life is to unplug it for 10 minutes. A quick unplug, or RBR puts it into some kind of power cycle loop, where I can hear the exhaust fan kick on for a second, and then off, repeatedly and it never boots up.

Is my HR24 about to die, or is this a bug with the new release?

Pushed my 5 HR20-700 from 0x059E to 0x05CD over the weekend. What a difference. All the menus are now fast. The DVRs were unbearable to use before. I don't have any remote button issues or resolution problems. I did notice that for the first few days when I pushed menu, My Directv did not show any shows and loaded faster. Now I get recommended shows and menu and list load 1 or 2 sec slower than before. Overall, the DVRs are usable again.

What the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks is going on here???

I'll just repost the issue I had with 0x5c9, because it's deja vu all over again with 0x5cd:

"My experience with 0x5c9 (and now 0x5cd):

JVC Projector connected through a Denon 3808CI, fed by a HR21/100. Legacy system (no SWM), BBCs on. As of 05/16/12 no problems changing the channels, however when I went to watch on 05/18/12, I would lose the picture (and sound) when changing channels it and wouldn't come back.

HDMI indicator would go disappear from the Denon display. I could get the picture back by switching inputs away from and back to the HR21.

Changed the HDMI cable between the HR21 and the Denon: same result
Connected the JVC to the HR21 directly: same result.
Replaced the BBCs: same result

Connected my HR23/700 (software upgrade 0x5cb - the one that used to work with the HR21) and voila - I can change channels w/o losing the picture."

At least 4 different software versions over the last 10 days. 2 caused issues on the HR21 (0x5c9 & 0x5cd).

Any reason that my HR20 and HR21 are running 0x5cd, but the HR23 is still on 0x5cb? They are all connected the same way - ethernet cable through the router.

2 questions:
How do you tell what version is "in the stream"?
How do you "push" a new version to your box?

Thanks
