    My H21 did not receive the pushed update.

    I received last weeks after the unit being replaced but did not receive this one.

    My H21 is connect to a WB68 and the receiver was tuned to ESPNEWS HD (207).

    I was watching from 10:45 p.m. ET to 12:00 p.m. ET and nothing happened. I just checked again this morning to see if it was pushed after that time and it was not.

    Got the 0x431e push last night. So far, the same issues that I have reported for the last several CE's persist.
    * List of channels received was reset and I have to deactivate the channels I don't get
    * Internet was not connected when I first looked at Info & Test - checked setup which was correct and selected Connect Now and it connected. System Test does not connect internet. You have to go through the Connect Now process which does work
    * Autotunes continue to re-enable themselves (not a new issue but not fixed). I had set an auto-repeating Autotune for channel 18 at 8:00am but I can not delete it. I delete all the scheduled occurrences but the "master" remains and reschedules for the next week on the next morning. Have not found anyway to remove it.

    I did not see the other "strange" menu that I had last week when using Menu+Info this time. Have not seen any other oddities as yet.

    As I previously posted, I had to go back to NR 4080 last week after push, as it would go into screensaver mode every 2 or 3 minutes with no audio. Got the 431e push last night, and reattached AM21, rebooted and ran manual antenna setup. Took two tries to get OTA to show up in the guide (all channels), but it finally did. Menu looks ok this time, and so far no screen saver mode as with last push. Will report back with any other problems I may find.

    I don't believe I got the push. I was on the receiver until midnight and didn't see it and this morning the info screen won't come up as before so I don't think I got it.

    Still doesn't look like I've got the push, the info screen is still blank when I try to access it.

    One annoying issue though: Ever since I checked out the new local on the 8s the screen saver comes up all the time. Doesn't matter what channel I leave the receiver on when I check on it the screen saver is on. And actually it seems kinda weird that the screen saver would be available at all since it's not a DVR and can't be paused. I guess maybe for the XM channels. But it shouldn't come on at all for regular stations.

    I did not get Friday push. I saw on Redh.com 0x431E was only active firmware so I did reset/02468 and got it Sat.

    I can't tell if i got this week's push my info & test screen comes up blank same as last week after i got the push on my replacement

    the screen saver is coming up for me every few minutes also and i haven't even tried to access the new local on 8 feature


    Update:I've been watching the receiver for the last 2 hours and the screen saver hasn't come up like it was earlier and i'm thinking it might be only be happening on specific channels bu t cant remember which channel i was on. i have tried different channels HD to SD to off-air channels but can recreate it again

    ditto here, which I suspect means that I did not get it.

    One thing I have noticed, though is that the screen saver is showing up on my H21-200 while tuned to a local channel. I would think that the screen saver should never come on since I cannot pause the show :scratchin

    This is a strange one. I was gone for the weekend and checked it this evening. I still get blank info and test so I didn't get the download. Also, I was getting blank screen on all channels...OTA or Sat. A menu reset fixed the gray screen. I don't have it networked yet so I couldn't send a report.

    The weirdest part though is my HR21-200 also had blank screen for all channels, but my other 2 HDDVRs...HR20-700 and HR21-100...were working just fine.

    My HR21-200 is networked and I sent the following diagnostic report after rebooting...20080928-3D57...I completely forgot to send until it was already reset.

    Edit: The HR21-200 is on 27D

    I was out of town the past few days and it looks like I did not receive the push. Info & Test screen is still blank, OTA edited channels have remained. My wife says it was on channel 279 on Friday night and local OTA 9-1 on Saturday night. The AM21 is still working great at receiving local OTA channels. Channel changes are still pretty slow, but I can live with it. I have a replacement H21-200 that is not networked. I had the screen saver issue after the last push, but has not been a recurring problem after the first day or so.

    I got a return box for the H21-200 that I shipped out last month. Did anyone with the replacement H21 get a return box today?
