    Quick look after the download:
    * Signal meters now work and match the reading on the AM21 on my HR21
    * After reboot, the internet connection was N/A(-1), however it immediately came back after a Network/System Test. DNS address carried over from prior CE
    * Menu+Info on front panel gets Playlist Sort and Report. Don't know what function a Playlist Sort has on an H21. Also not on Menu like HR2X.
    * Guide speed seems to be a bit better

    Received here at 10.28pm Central time.
    System appears to come up OK.
    First thing I notice is that there is now only one OTA tuner signal strength, and it is showing what seem to be the correct OTA signal strengths.
    At first glance everything basic seems to be working, will check the rest out tomorrow.

    Before:
    original version 4016 [I think]
    past update 4080

    Now:
    Original version 4080
    past update 4314 9:45 PM

    Plugged in USB and network

    pop up menu about setting up OTA channels. proceeded.
    Guide data was very very slow updating [5+ min]
    Checked network.. fine
    Edited my favorites guide.
    Guide came up with a SAT channel [TNTHD?]
    changed to an OTA channel, lost video but had sound. No matter what channel I tuned to, had no video output [component]. TV showed "no signal". H21 was working/responding to remote, but no video.
    RBR
    working fine. :D

    Vista media palyer now shows another DirecTV Plus HD DVR,
    but all my DVRs [three] show as DirecTV Mediashare renderer [from DirecTV2PC?]

    OTA loss of signal 771 error message shows "loss of signal on SAT Tuner 2"

    I did not receive the update.

    I was watching if from way before the update window until 12:00p.m. ET and never got the pop up. I just check this morning and I am still on the old one.

    I also did not receive 4314. Tried menu reset with no luck. My receiver is not networked. I believe the box was tuned to a network LIL during the time of the push.

    Not sure what this item from the New features of the release notes should tell me - it appears that Report is still only in Menu+Info double button push on the console!

    05 - Added Push Diagnostic Report to hidden option

    signal meter for OTA verified working. Some of the previous locals that i deleted had to be deleted again after new sw load. The signal meter is very fast and responsive. The AM21 seems to have a great OTA tuner versus the HR20

    OTA channel reception seems fine, both audio and video. As VOS reported, if you get a 771 on an OTA channel it says "searching for signal on satellite in 2".

    I'm still not able to get network access--the MAC address is still FF:FF:FF:FF... which is an illegal MAC address.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Thanks to an internet upgrade at my ISP, I lost connectivity for 3 days. Now it's back and more than twice as fast...but it prevented me from knowing a push had taken place. I'll evaluate and report back.:)

    (they changed my static ip, gateway and subnet mask...so nothing worked, and they didn't tell me for 2 days after the change. I like the speed but it made me miss all the CE's except this push, and of course, I didn't know a push took place, until after I was asleep!)
