    the hr22-100 & hr20-700 both react very slowing to many remote functions, sometimes up to 10 seconds. i would say most wait times are doubled from prior format. maneuvering within the guide does move faster then before.

    HR21-100 is as slow as it was on the SD guide (very slow). The two HR24 units and 3 H23 units are doing great, speedy as ever

    HR20-700 was faster for the first week or so then it started slowing down now all remote commands take at least 10 seconds to respond. Is there a setting that can be causing this??

    How full is the HD?

    Two things I'd try that may fix it; (my HR20-700 takes about two seconds to load the Guide or Playlist, about 3-4 to bring up the Menu.) Going through the Guide is very fast.

    Flush the guide. Two resets within 30 minutes. Do it before turning in, let the Guide redownload at night.

    Clear NVRAM. Tune to Ch. 1, make sure audio is going, then rapidly press Red-Red-Blue-Blue-Yellow-Green. Then look for small text lower left saying it had been cleared.

    Good luck!

    It now seems to take forever to change channels. Especially for Sat. to OTA. The HD is pretty but, changing channels still not very good.

    Occasionally the Guide takes forever to do something.

    My R22 recently updated to the new GUI.

    It's great.. Much faster then the old one. I really like the changes.

    I do not have HD so I was rather surprised it updated.

    Any brain storms on the method clear NVRAM when the color button remote gets retired?

    Up up down down left right left right 2 1? The code now always reminds me of a shortened version.

    Bottom drawer, batteries out. Bring out of retirement as needed. But I can't believe you have but one remote.....

    I was thinking his question was more if they discontinue the color buttons being able to be used at all for the function.

    Maybe it is just me, but I did not really notice any difference for the first two to three weeks. Since then things have just gotten progressively slower. I even changed my remote from RF to IR last night to just speed things up a bit. I am certainly not one of the happy campers with this new interface. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the next update will make things better. (I got my update 12/20.)

    This is what I'm seeing as well..Really slow to bring up recordings and going back to TV after reveiwing the recording list..
    The worst is the blacken pause bar - that person who thought that was ok should be fired..smaLLER IS BETTER!

    My HR24-500s were also getting progressively slower - longer black screens and remote issues. Like a nightmare from the past! Why did I pay $600 to be rid of the slow-ass DVRs?

    Hopefully good news - On Monday I was updated to 0x059C... I haven't had much time to look at it but some of the black mess covering everything is fixed. It did seem more responsive for the few minutes I looked but I'm not sure if it is because they fixed something or if it is just from the reboot. Still much slower to respond to selections than before the so called HD GUI 'update'.

    We'll shall see....

    I have noticed something similar on my H24. Now every single remote key press takes 3 seconds, including scrolling through the guide. The HR24-200 is also slower than it was last week. Am I allowed to change my vote in the poll?

    I've got two HR24's and an H24 and there is definitely an improvement in speed. I also like the color scheme as it makes reading the guide much easier now. For the first few days my mother didn't like it because she was used to the old colors.

    Other than inside the guide, the overall speed is much slower on all 3 of my HR24-500s than it was prior to the HDGUI. Channel changes, pulling up menus or lists, you name it and 'sluggish' is the word most likely to come to mind, the other would be 'ignoring button presses' and that latter happens more often than I'd like.

    I've cleared the NVRAM and after that it was still sluggish. Now I've cleared the caches, which irritates the hell out of me, and it seems a bit quicker but nowhere near as quick as with the SDGUI.

    Overall color me totally unimpressed with this basically 'pretty' HDGUI.

    /rant on!
    When my son approached me last August about going to D* to get NFLST I was a bit leery because I couldn't stand the ultra-sluggish HR21 that I had when I was with D* previously. I researched to make sure it was a good move. With MRV and the reported performance of the HR24, I decided to go ahead. I made sure that I got only HR24s because without an improvement in speed, D* was a non-starter for me. MRV made coming to D* more doable because I could have the 4 tuners to my use as I wanted.

    Now with the HDGUI, I'm back to slow, not quite as slow as the HR21, but still slow. And slow at things that are noticeable and irritating. Frankly if something isn't done to correct that, I'll probably give strong consideration to eating the ETF and going back to E*.
    /rant off

    Whew!! I feel much better now! :)

    All three of my HR20-100's are much slower. It has been consistant through several software versions. Have been having an annoying "runaway" with no remote response while using FF2. Also slow number response while attemting to change channels.
