    Dripping...
    IIRC, when we first started the H21 we were told D* would force downloads whenever they wanted to. Is that changing now with this release and D* wants us to treat the H21 like the other boxes and force downloads during the window? Just want to make sure of the rules on this. Thanks

    Hmmm .. This is a good question since it's been a while. I suspect that it's a wait-for-automatic update, but I don't know that for a fact.

    It will probably get pushed tonight when the CE window opens just like the last couple of updates have. I'd let it do it on it's own.

    +1. It is great to see this added to the H21 and H20 just in time for football season to start.

    Thank you very much DirecTV.

    I'm liking the idea to hide the SD channel if HD is available.

    Since this migrated to discussion anyway, this thread is now the official discussion thread.

    And to answer the OP, let it roll worked just fine for me. :)

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Thanks to Tom for helping me find the new features... May I suggest DIRECTV put a scroll bar in that menu so people know there's more to it?

    Mods,

    Shouldn't this thread be titled H21-200 not -700 or did PACE start making the H21 now?
