Is this a staggered release or all at once? I have a self-install scheduled for this Friday and would like to get the latest NR ASAP.
The installer will download whatever the latest version is in the stream for you. That's part of the install process.

I'm the installer - I guess I get what I get!
If it's not in the stream or your account isn't authorized for it then there's no way you can force it.

So I got the update this morning and now the channel bar is messed up on the right side. Its like faded out. What's even weirder is that I have the same issue on my hr20 now. That got no update.
It appears this happened to all model receivers. There is a thread about this particular problem. It happened to all 3 of my receivers yesterday.
A Menu Reset fixed them all.

The FF3 and FF2 does not auto-correct, it actually advances. Very frustrating.
It's pretty bad on my unit. Noticeably bad.

Really frustrating. DTV tech support advised they are aware, etc ...

That's odd, I can see and play recordings on my HR22. Not sure why an HR24 would be any different. I am having one issue though. If I try to play a recording from my HR34 on my HR22. And the recording was made prior to the last update, I can't use "Select" to advance through the screens to make it play. The second screen displays, but looks odd and doesn't have the menu to select play. So instead, I have to hit play on the "List" screen and then it plays fine.
I am still having continued Whole Home issues. I can't see or play recordings from other devices ( HR 24's). This has existed through the last 3 or 4 firmware updates. Resets, etc no avail ...

1) The Guide is back to breaking up. It settles down when you change the page.
2) Agreed on the FF issues, especially when playing a program recorded on another DVR in the system. Sometimes it backs up, sometimes it stops on the last image shown, and sometimes it even jumps forward a few minutes.
3) VOD takes forever to load (I only tired channel 1000). Once loaded, after you select a category and go into Search, there still is no alphabet on the left hand side of the screen. You can only search by direct access of the letters through the keypad on the remote, which is the way I normally do it, anyway, but the other can be useful, too.

I have this problem as well.
I'm watching a channel that's in Custom One, my normal FAVORITES list. Then I key into the remote a channel that's not in my favorites list. Fine. That channel appears. Then I press PREV to go back to the previous channel that is in the favorites list. Fine. The HR34 gos there. Then I press PREV again to go back the channel that's not in my favorites list. Not so fine. The HR34 goes to the top channel in my LAST FOUR list. The LAST FOUR list does not contain the non-favorites channel I keyed in. Seems like the LAST FOUR list and the PREV command don't like channels that are not in your favorites list.

I wanted to watch the Giants/Ravens game on 212, the NFL Network, and a replay of the first round of the FedEx Tour Championship on the Golf Channel, 218. I set them up in Double Play. As a back-up measure, I started recording the golf match.
The final twosome of Tiger and Rory had yet to tee off so I stayed on the football game. It quickly became a blowout and I drifted to surfing around, watching other channels. I'd drop back into the golf match, not using Double Play but by just changing the channel, to check in. I got involved in another program and forgot about golf for a while.
The next time I tuned it in, I saw Tiger and Rory were on the fourth hole and Tiger was at -2. Whoa!. I was glad I had set up Double Play and had the golf match in record. I used Previous to go to a second channel and then hit the down arrow, expecting to find the golf match. Nothing. I hit it again and again. The DirecTV logo on the front of the HR34 would blink but nothing happened. Nothing would get Double Play to re-engage.
Other functions remained, abet sluggishly. It would begrudgingly changed channels, ignoring many remote commands. Again, the DirecTV logo blinked but nothing happened. It took maybe 10 seconds to call up QuickTune but eventually it started. The HR34 reminded me of my HR23 back three months ago, during the Time Of The Great Slow Down. It had something else on its mind other than changing channels and it absolutely didn't want to go into Double Play.
Eventually I entered in 2-1-8 and called up the golf match. At that point, Double Play started working again. The down arrow switched between the golf match and whatever other station I had selected. The DVR's speed of operation became normal again.
I didn't have to re-initialize Double Play. I didn't get the gray boxes with the prompts telling me how to start Double Play. It acted like it had never failed. But it had until I entered 2-1-8 and reminded the HR34 that it was supposed to have The Golf Channel on one half of Double Play.
