    I don't think there is any "maybe" about this.
    That is what I have on my 24 and it is this quick.

    Hell, I'm not even on the bus! I'm hitchhiking and not sure where I am.... As you all well know.

    In this case however, I did get the update this morning. I haven't used the receivers to see what's up but maybe there is hope? I guess I'll know in a couple of weeks.

    Caring and attention are good, but the ongoing problem (intermittent in my case) of sloooooow / non-responsive DVR's suggests a lack of senior management priority, allocated resources or technical competence.

    I hope the 0x62C firmware update will improve the situation, but history does not suggest that would be a good bet.

    I know it's addressed "one thing".

    The same half full glass of water can be viewed two ways.

    Not sure who you're addressing here, but if you go back a few replies, you'll see where the channel changing time has changed from 8 sec back down to 3 sec for me.

    I think I resemble that remark... :lol:

    Wife travels a lot and we don't get that much time to watch TV together. Why we are hanging onto some of these shows is beyond me. Ask the wife.

    Out of my 12 HRs, I only use 3 normally. I do have one 24-500 that seems to be a tad insane at time and I use that as a server. Don't forget, all these slow HRs (the whole 21 series) make good servers.

    Policy is to get a 24 if possible if your 24 is shot. Doesn't mean you'll get another 500, tho. I've got a couple 24-100s and they run pretty well.

    Ain't that the truth!

    So far so good with 0x62C but I am usually ok until about 10 days or so after a restart so we'll see.

    I am usually a few weeks behind when I see a new release come out before I get it. I am still running D2.
    It seems that they start in the west, jump to the east and then come back to central US.

    I'm a little afraid! I don't usually get the updates in the first wave....

    I'll hide under the covers until it is safe to come out.

    Maybe they have been reading your posts. LOL

    Glad you got it early since you have had so much trouble.

    Did you ever make a favorite ? it only takes a few minutes if you only put 10 or 20 channels in it.

    Usually goes out to the western states first then works its way across the country.

    They're obviously toying with you. Next the black helicopters will start flying overhead... :lol:
