For instance, the up arrow to get to quick tune can take 10 seconds for a response, if it ever does. Sometimes the receivers respond normally, other times never. I have reset the receivers multiple times. My HR20, which didn't get the update yet, is responding normally. Anyone else having the problem? Solution?

I have this with my HR24-500 occasionally, and have since it replaced my dying HR20-700 last September. Most of the time it's nicely responsive, but sometimes it slows to a crawl. Remote (RF mode) will take spells where key presses are not registered (DTV light doesn't blink on front panel), then sometimes it gets super-sensitive making it nearly impossible to register a single keypress (makes it lots of fun selecting a program to view from the play list, select a program from the guide, or enter a channel number directly). Some times when deleting a program it goes through the two-slow-step process described above, but most of the time it only takes a second or two. Slow downs seem to be more frequent in the late evening which makes me wonder if the system is just busy doing some sort of background maintenance.
All if this is without getting the update - still running 0x62c installed 12/20/12.
Try resetting the receiver through the menu settings. After any update, I reset the receiver. Seems to help.
