    Wow - that sounds like two votes for "I expected it to slow down..." I guess I had hopes that the new 'faster' HDGUI would speed things up. I suppose I should have also voted 'working as expected' when you look at it that way.

    Do you think we can ever expect DirecTV to 'speed up' their receivers?

    This is one of the reasons the poll is flawed.

    Works as expected shouldn't be the same as no complaints.

    Jimmy when did you receive your new software? B/c it takes a few weeks after u get the new software for the sluggishness to start. When i got my new HDGUI on Dec 7 for 3 weeks it was lightening fast. But then it turned to lightening slow.

    I have an HR20 and when it first installed it was very quick, pulling up channels, scrollings both horizontal and vertical. However, after a couple of weeks I've noticed it starting to respond slowly, just like the old guide. Plus yesterday it was screwing up big time. When you jump a day or two ahead with the green button the highlighted bar would not follow. Meaning whatever time frame you were on when you jumped ahead would still be selected although the guide would be a day ahead.

    The only way I could get it to be correct was to reboot the receiver with the button behind the door. For now at least it's working correctly.

    This is one of the first things to try when excessive sluggishnish crawls in, but it's a tad safer to use the Menu reset.

    A bunch of years ago, a competent Tech on a house call said he rebooted his DVR every week as a matter of course. That was when doing so blew out the Guide, so it was something one did on retiring.

    The delays to remote commands on my HRs have gotten so bad that I've actually been heading for the receiver to do an RBR when it finally decided to respond.

    To throw in my experience, the new GUI does speed up the guide, but for one reason or another on my two HR24-100 units, it takes 15-20 seconds to pull up recorded content either local or remote. That is quite a departure from the old GUI which was almost instantaneous with local content and took less than 5 seconds to pull remote content.

    "Steps have I taken"? None. Why should I have to take steps to alleviate obvious software flaws that some here still maintain don't exist? :confused:

    Like others, HR22 is slow to bring up guide, menu, but once its there it is fast. The HR22 is faster in every over area then using the old SW version. Overall I am pleased with the new HD GUI.

    One of my HR20-700s, gets slow frequently. About once a week it has to be rebooted, then it works OK for about a week. The other HR20-700 works fine and is not sluggish at all.

    I'm hoping they do end up speeding up things like displaying the menu and guide screens. Waiting 5+ seconds seems like a long time. I am pleased that entering channel numbers has improved. Scrolling through the guide is faster and I like the additional feature of holding down the arrow key for continuous scrolling. I wish changing channels was quicker, but until technology changes, I don't think that is going to happen.

    Really? Confused??

    I would take steps to alleviate software flaws, be they obvious, subtle or in denial. Chacq'un a son gout!

    So, you've done no resets, no NVRAM clearing, no Guide flushing. Really?

    This is true for me if I'm looking not more than a few hours ahead in the guide. If I go forward in the listings a few days, the guide becomes nasty slow.

    That is a lucid, intelligent, well thought out objection. Enjoy your remote command delays. :rolleyes:
