These updates are usually rolled out in phases.

Apparently they didn't finish the last roll out before the new update.

Indeed. I have two HR21s. The 100 is on 0x59e (2/8) and the 700 is on 0x5cb (5/5).

Hoping the new update will fix some stuttering issues with the 100 that started after the HD GUI. We shall see.

Well my HR22-100 with 0x59e has been slow as heck for the last month and I'm about to throw it out the window. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

HR24-200
0x5cd
Report ID: 20120520-2455

Channel / Info banner transparency is distorted, especially around the shortcut buttons towards the right. There is also a chunky distortion band by the DirecTV logo date and time.

This had the same appearance on 0x5c8 for awhile. Then when 0x5cd was loaded, the banner returned to normal. Now its back to this distorted view again. I guess it will be like this for a long time. Clearing NVRAM on channel 1 does not fix it. Its not bothersome enough to waste 15 minutes doing a restart either, so I'll leave it like it is to see if it ever reboots itself.


I see the same problem on my HR20-700. It happened after browsing OnDemand but I don't know if it is just a coincidence.

Sounds like there's an HDMI/HDCP issue between the new-version HR21 and your JVC projector. The Denon isn't really party to the transaction (except possibly stripping out the audio).


Except that the HDMI from the Directv box goes through the Denon receiver and I can recover the video buy switching inputs on the Denon and switching back.

And also the problem does not exist in any form when the HR 23 is used

Wow now it's like that on my H21-100. All I did was watch Game of Thrones via MRV. Now the banner is distorted. Very unprofessional. At least it's still functional and not a showstopper.

And now my H24-200 has the banner problem too! It's like a virus infected all my receivers!

Not sure where to post this. Received 5cd last night in Connecticut. Got a banner message when I first hit "List" on my remote that my receiver (HR20-700) was now authorized for Whole-Home DVR service. I'm thinking cool; maybe some concession for a long time customer (9 years). When I go into Whole-Home DVR set up, it says my account is not authorized - WTF?

I know I'd still need to network my receivers but what's up with WHDVR service? Scanning the forums, I don't see anyone else mentioning this. Is this a tease, or did they actually authorize my account? Anyone else get this message?

I received Ox5cd on two HR20-700s overnight and the program guide on both is empty. I wonder why this update cleared the guide and how long should it take to rebuild? :confused:

Most updates clear the guide data. It takes 24 to 48 hours for the guide data, posters, etc to rebuild back to being 2 weeks worth of data.

I really would just like to see this software take a direction like Xfinity X1 and Dayview. Videos here: http://blog.comcast....ct-dayview.html

You really should watch the videos. Look how smooth the interfaces run and yet UI elements have a certain "fluid" motion like a modern day UI should have. Take a look at how you interact with apps on your iphone/ipad/android and watch the video. Then see how the DirecTV software just doesn't feel as polished without the level of 'flow' in the UI.

I really hope DirecTV takes some of this input as constructive criticism. All I hope for is a great software package that enhances the total overall experience. It really is a win-win for everybody to have this level of communication with DirecTV on these ideas.

My HR21 and HR24 both do this and both are still on the previous software (0x59e???) from March. It's not new to 0x5cd.

05CD arrived on an HR22 overnight and now I'm seeing the same HDMI handshake problem others have reported. This is going through a Yamaha RX-A3000. Switching the AVR to another input and then back usually cures it until the next channel change. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries. I've been unable to reproduce the problem with the HR22 connected directly to the TV.

05CD came to my HR20, that is connected to the same AVR, last week. I've not seen the problem on the HR20.

I've seen the distorted banner on version 5c8 on HR24-200. With this new version it's the first time I've seen it on all 3 of my units (H21-100, H24-200, HR24-200).

720p or HDMI Handshake Issue
I have Native set to Off in both situations.

Originally I had 1080i and 1080p only selected but I decided to select 720p as well.
So now I have 3 resolutions selected and the HDMI Handshake issue seems to go away can anyone else verify if this seems to work?

HDMI Handshake - Not sure if what I am seeing is the same as others.

When I switch to SD channel or SD recorded program, the TV switches to 1440x240 for a moment, and then to 720x480. When I switch back, the TV displays 1920x1080I, bit for a moment it displays two compressed video images right & left. Yesterday I swapped in a new HDMI cable, and that made it better. The day before, it would get stuck on these distorted display resolutions, and then the solution was to turn the TV off & on again. It was just last night I realized they had rolled out new software. I have 0x5cd.

Up until a few days ago this setup worked just fine. What's a bit more odd is that I have 2 identical setup, same HR24-100 and same LCD HDTV and the other one does not have the issue.

I'd be delighted to put up with a silly banner distortion if the effing DVR would respond to a remote command before one starts to wonder if it missed the button press altogether. It was comically maddening last night watching my wife spend 3 minutes trying to simply tune a channel. She actually gave up and pressed list instead to watch a recording. Oh boy, the delay there made another "comical" moment.

I'm still at a March release, and I am getting ready to polish my bat so it flies through the air that much faster as I bring it down on these under-powered boxes.

I've had DirecTV for more than a decade, this is the worst I've ever seen it. By far. I'm not one to normally complain a lot, except about their brain-dead front line script readers, but this is ridiculous.

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.


I just received 0x5cd this morning and am also experiencing this issue going through a Denon 2809ci and HR22-100, everything else being similar.
