    Still something funky going on with the phone line test. Sometimes it works, some times it says it failed, but at least it doesn't hang like it used to. A couple times when I've done the test and it said failed, I noticed that the progress bar indicator stops moving for a while, then started moving again and then got the failed message.

    I tried everything I could think of last night and nothing appears broken. I forgot to test search results (ordered by THE or A) but I suspect it's still there.

    Last to check in... :)

    Got version pushed. No issues to report at this time.

    My configuration is simpler than most being that my output is S-Video at 480i into a SDTV. Regardless, (based on cost) I think this would make an excellent all around receiver SD or HD.

    I haven't spent time to compare with the HR20, but I'm really liking the HD quality on the H21 receiver. There's a really good chance that I will put this in place for Live NFL games this fall.

    It looks like maybe the fixed the "regular schedule" bug. I've seen it after each forced upgrade but didn't see it this time.

    At the moment, my H21 is on a 480i LCD. Initially I thought the picture quality was not as good as the R10 which is on the same TV. I have to retract that, I think it was the channels I was watching or maybe the picture quality has improved. It's on par with the R10 for quality.

    Little nit thing that's been bothering me ...

    On the HR20, when you bring up the banner ... if you do not have a message, there is no envelope/mail icon.

    On the H21, there is always a mail icon on my screen.

    I guess when you have a message the icon is filled in? It's currently just an outline of an envelope all the time.

    Others see the same?

    I could swear there is the same thing on the HR20. An envelope but it's just an outline... It'll fill in like you said when you've got mail.

    Edit: You're right! There's no icon on the HR20. Is that something new with the White GUI or more recent? I had always seen the envelope.

    More on the modem test, it looks like it's not hanging up the line. When the test completes if you wait a minute and pick up a phone on the same line I hear either a fast busy/redial busy or catch the end of the recording that says to hang up and try the call again.

    There used to be an envelope outline but one or two releases after the white GUI it went away. It's gone now.

    "Splash Screen" Issue
    I'm still getting a splash screen between SD and HD locals. This time it's the background of the setup menu/list menu. Previously it was the XM splash screen.

    Note: I have not had any more audio issues since the last post about it. I will keep checking.
