    OK, so which is it - ONE voice, or a handful??? :rolleyes: :p

    Is THIS a "handful" then???





    Hmm, so BEFORE the upgrades (in my SAME "environment") the speeds were slow, but now...they are SLOWER - uh, Oooookayyyyyyy :rolleyes:

    Gee, why didn't I think of that...oh yea, I DID! But news flash...D* ain't going to cough up 2 HR24's on their dime, to basically fix what their upgrade made worse on my HR20's, sorry.
    Botton line...with this "upgrade", there is just not enough power on these older HR2x models to run all this crap properly anymore

    Or maybe YOU have a better (read: NEWER) DVR than what some of us are stuck with now, so YOUR experience IS better. And not that it matters, but BOTH HDD were replaced only 6-months ago...so I HIGHLY doubt both are going bad, but thanks for playin...

    My "particular" setup is just fine, thank you much!

    I'm glad that this "improvement" is working SO well for you...but it is NOT the panacea for the entire universe, contrary to those "thousands of subs" that supposedly say otherwise.
    No surprise on the "kool-aid" company-line responses I was expecting... :rolleyes:

    OK guys, this isn't a thread about the HDUI performance. Let's take that the Discussion thread for that, and let's try to remember to be nice.

    Thanks :)

    I just tried it and it's working now. The message comes up right on top of the directv logo and the welcome word.

    For me, it seems to work when it wants too. Tried it on my other tv and it doesn't work.

    I played with this this morning, and "timing" of pressing did make it fail and then work.

    I posted this in the "NVRAM" thread that got locked - the part about it being difficult to discern the "NVRAM/Flash Cleared" message may be helpful to someone ...

    Also, the "NVRAM/Flash Cleared" Message only lasts about 2 to 3 seconds so you have to Know Where to Look and When To Look or you will miss it.

    Yup - its helpful.

    As Richie also pointed out...the appearance of the quick screen test is very fast...actually more like 1/2 second or so. That doesn't help the average user even know it happened.

    And for those that haven't done this before, look in the lower left of the screen for the message.

    I can tell a lot of folks in this thread are just replying without having tried it recently. So I gave it a try and here is what I saw:

    The first time I tried it with my HR20 I indeed saw the same things that many of you are reporting. When I would hit the 'red' button I would get a 'bonk' error noise. Eventually hitting the 'blue' buttons would cause the mini-guide to come up and 'yellow' and 'green' would cause their respective shortcuts to come up. It was like Channel 1 was ignoring the 'red' button. I tried this again several times to no avail.

    I changed the channel and then went back to Channel 1. I let it set a long time, much longer than I ever have in the past. I tried again and it worked fine.

    So like one of the previous posters has said, I would recommend that if this doesn't work change the channel, change it back and then let it set a good long while before attempting it. DirecTV must have made a change to the channel that is causing it to take much longer to download all the initial stuff. Hope that helps!
