    Used the H21 again last night to watch hockey since both DVRs had all 4 tuners recording stuff (typical Monday). During intermission we surfed around and the guide is definately faster then it has been since this new GUI was introduced in this CE cycle. Response isn't bad at all and is definately faster then the HR20 or HR21 is, but not quite as fast as national release. But I'm certainly feeling good about the new CE and that some of the speed issues have been addressed.

    I got the push fine, but did not disconnect the AM21...by the time I got the info (was out of town), it was too late for me to do anything.

    Everything seems to work (and faster), of course I had to re-choose my OTA stations (but I did not have to re-do the OTA setup).

    I haven't looked at my favorites yet.

    Very strange...I had my AM21 connected and I got the push just fine. After reading the opening to the thread, I was sure I was going to have problems, but all went well. I lost some settings (not all), of course, but the upgrade did happen.

    I have been out of town the last few weekends and have not had much time during the week to post. I did not revert to the NR (out of town) before the Push I received the push on 10-10-08 at 8:36 PST I had to resort my OTA channels and remove 8.1 and 8.2 that i do not receive.

    Miscellaneous options under the menu tab opens a blank page only done is selected on the left hand column.

    On the previous release the miscellaneous tap had autotunes, FF correction, etc. is any one else experiencing this

    Not really an issue but do we have any idea whether we will also CE test the H21-100 w/ the AM21 (since I have one of those as well)? Just curious.

    Just looking at the new release with an HR20-700 and an H21-200 side by side. HR20-700 is all the way to Live TV. The HR20-700 is about 5 seconds behind the H21-200. With the last version (maybe) and definitely with the NR, both the HR20-700 and H21-200 were spot-on in terms of what is showing on the screen.

    H21/AM21 combo did great again during Sunday Ticket. Guide was relatively quick as was channel changing. Interactive player updates were quick. Trying to use the interactive menu via the "red" button was very slow though. I gave up on using it.

    Other then that it's doing well.

    WGA600N setup initiates correctly and appears to work .. However, it does not complete after security key is entered .. says the key is wrong even though it's definitely right.

    Diagnostics key (via wired connection): 20081024-2B2E

    I confirmed that the WGA600N adapter does configure properly on 0x290 HR20-700

    Just to report another Sunday Ticket hammering and the H21 plus AM21 passed with flying colors. The guide and interactive apps are definitely faster then the first couple. Looks like they may have take some of the improvements in 290 from the HR20/21/22 series as the guide and menu's on those are now blazing fast. They are actually faster then the H21 now which is a bit scary. But gives hope of the H21 being even faster.

    And the AM21 worked fine, watched games OTA most of the day since my Bears were actually on local TV so the OTA tuners got a good workout.

    Woke up to mine being "on". I have my HR21-200 plugged in to the same outlet and it wasn't, so it "shouldn't" have been a AC power "glitch" that caused it.
    Seems to "be fine" other than having been powered on
