    4406 pushed here at 10.30 central. Got to around 70% then went back to zero. Still sitting at zero after 40 minutes. No response to any remote commands. Did an RBR. Started up but no software download. Acquired satellite data, still on the NR - shows 4080 downloaded at 10.48pm.
    No channels in the guide below 70. Did a refresh through the web site and got them back. Looks like I will not get the CE tonight.

    Got the push sucessfully. Took a bit longer to see how everything setup since we had reverted to NR. I d/l with AM21 disconnected. At the end of the original download, everything looked OK except that I had the next seven days of autotunes in the todo list. I then restarted the H21, pulled the plug when it powered down and reattached the AM21. Plugged all back in and restarted again. Went through the Antenna setup, removed the channels listed that I don't get and all was OK except that Internet access didn't automatically enable. Went into Adv. Network and selected Connect Now w/o changing any parameters and Internet connected fine. At this point, the Auto Tune did NOT reschedule so I have hope that this is fixed. The Diag. Report is now available through the Misc. Options although I didn't send one since everything seems working except the auto enable on internet connection. Media Sharing seemed to work fine with very little testing (mostly music) so far. All in All, looks good so far. Quirks are minor. Good job guys.

    I need to change my vote. There was a second attempt to push 4406 at 11.49pm Central and this one succeeded. As usual, had to edit the OTA channel list to remove the one channel I don't receive. Everything else looked good - I don't have the box networked.

    Got 4406 here.

    Plugged in the AM21 and it ran the auto detect setup just fine. All went well and OTA stations all come in good.

    No network connection at this time to the H21 so I can't test that.

    BUG: Lost all channels under 70 so all locals via sat are gone. OTA channels do show up though. Will do a refresh services to fix.

    OBSERVATION: Going back to national release reminded how fast this box *can* be and reminded me how dang slow this new UI is in comparison. I think since this is the UI from the HR line that explains it and shows that the HR line can also be much faster. I hope over the next few months they can get the speed back up there because I really miss the speed during Sunday Ticket and annoys me a bit knowing it can be much faster.

    Anyway, so far things are looking good. I'll try to use the H21/AM21 combo tomorrow during Sunday Ticket and hammer it good.

    Also received the push. Plugged in USB to AM21 and reset local channels, all went well.
    I noticed that 1080p is offered as a new screen resolution. I took one for the team and selected 1080p on my 720p Samsung A450. As expected, it was a bad plan. The box locked up and then showed a purple screen with a PIP box in upper right corner. I had to RBR and everything returned to normal.

    Update went fine. Reconnected AM21 and repeated Off-Air Setup. Went fine. Did not have to reauthorize my local channels this time.

    All good here. My favorites even came back (from the NR roll back).

    LOVE the new XM screensaver by the way ;) I've been waiting for something like that.

    Also like thew new "extra dark" version of Channels I Don't Get as well.

    Reverted back to national yesterday & lost almost everything. Booted up to initial setup guide, lost favorites, channels below 70, & remote mode changed to IR.
    Re-authorized it before the push.
    After the push, the favorites were back [without setting them up].

    Ok, I'm hammering it today during Sunday Ticket.

    Overall the GUI is faster then the past couple updates. Channel changes are pretty quick. Channel changes to and from OTA are about the same speed as well, no extra delay.

    Interactive works fine, no problems. Certainly slower then the national release but not too bad.

    Overall speed of the GUI and interactive I'd say is about the same, maybe a tad faster then the HR20-700.
