2 Questions that I have not seen asked/answered in this thread:

  • What is the 'real' number of this release? The title says 0x0736; so far I have 0x4736 on an H21-100 and 0x736 on an H24-100. Neither of my HR24's have been updated yet.
  • What is the meaning of 'HD Apps' which is the only new feature mentioned in the Release thread?

 

I just got the 0x4736 on my son's H21-200

and

0x736 on both of my HR24-100 receivers

Now the graphics on the apps are HD.  but the app store along with its apps has been removed.  There are only 4 apps

Got this on my HR24-200 overnight, and instead of being up and ready to go this morning, the receiver was completely off. Had to wait for it to boot up when I hit the power button. Never had that happen before.

I've got five, and I love the weather app and the clearer graphics.

This release has played havoc with my DVRs. As usual, the guide was wrecked (and not refilling) and I had to restart twice to flush it. On one of my HR21s, the guide filled in as it should. On my other HR21 and my HR23, the guide won't fill in even after a couple of days. Almost every channel from 201 upwards is "To Be Announced" and nothing is recording. I've tried to RBR twice as well without any difference.

At this stage I'm a 15+ year customer who's sick of paying $155 a month for a product that I can't use. I'm this close to cancelling the lot.

This release is so bad, I'm considering disconnecting my HR24 and telling DirecTV to replace it with a model of equal or better quality. Every morning when I turn the thing on to listen to one of the music channels while getting dressed, I have to do a RBR because the damn thing is "stuck". The music channel to which I want to listen is dead silent, and changing channels isn't successful. It's a frickin' mess!


FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

You might try unplugging the 2 bad one for overnight before you go to bed and then plug them back up in the morning. Once in awhile that works for this kind of problem according to a few posts I have read.

Have you tried connecting the TV with a set of Component cables ? The HDMI might not be doing the handshake until it gets the spike from the RBR.

RBRing twice won't do it (Flush guide) unless you wait long enough for it to start up from the first reboot.

Yeah, I waited. I'll try unplugging it for a while.

Unplug the power on your swim for this too. Then plug it in first and wait ten minutes till you plug in the receivers.

Don't have a SWIM. Just the older elliptical dish and an unpowered multiswitch.

I got x0736 early yesterday morning, apps worked okay for a day, but tonight the cut out screen appears on the right, but will not fill in the apps. I power HR24-100 on and off, but does not clear the app blank cut out. I press LIST and MENU and GUIDE buttons, and those graphics overlay the blank app cut out. Arrow, page up/down and select buttons are unresponsive and do not allow me to do anything. I powered off for over an hour, then powered on. Blank app cut out screen still appears when I turn on, but buttons listed above are still unresponsive. I am sure it may help if I do a RBR, but how often will I have to do that with this release? I am also having issues on my latest HR34 software download. This to me is all a little comical. I remember all the negative comments TiVo was receiving for the last 2+ years for not perfecting their software on DirecTV's HR22-100 platform. Funny...... Sent from my iPad using DBSTalk mobile app

After the update, one of my three HR22 receivers had one guide filled in and the other two were empty. After double restarts, one additional HR22 guide started working. The last HR22 receives the base guide after the restart every time, but after about 20 minutes it is all lost again. I forced another firmware download and a couple of back to back restarts and no change. Settings are correct on a non-SWM slimline 5, and all channels receive fine. I assume I should try the unplug overnight next?

Perhaps you are no given it enough time to build the guide.  it takes 24 about hours after a complete guide flush

Both DVRs received 0x736 Tuesday AM. One is OK, but the other still has nothing populated in My DIRECTV, only a message about checking back later. It is also missing YouTube and Pandora. It has been over 48 hours and a restart did not help. I have also verified internet connectivity and everything else checks out OK. Not quite sure what the issue is.


DIRECTV since April 2000.

Nor I, but unless you sorely miss those things on that box, I'd wait for it to straighten itself out over time.

do a reboot then as soon as its back up again reboot it again then wait 72 hours and see what happens.

It seems with the new apps in HD, that's the way they are, and I've not seen an explanation or promise to change what we have. They're nice, but probably not a high priority right now. Well, for certain they are not right now.
