    My guess, if you do a push now, you'll would get the previous version before 0x04DA, 0x04D9.

    But before you do. Recheck all the settings. And look for anything that could be different.

    And what exactly are you issues with 0x04DA?

    Is 0x04DA giving you any issues? mgavs didn't give details what his issues were with it, so I have no idea what you should look for.

    So, I have this too on my HR20/700 and I'm a bit confused. Shouldn't I be getting a completely new HD interface?

    (Read through the posts and don't see a real reference to this? Sorry if I missed something obvious.)

    No, HDGUI starts with 576. That's a later version than 4da.

    What that download last night meant to me was restarting, individually, all twelve of my HRs so I could use my MRV properly. Happens every time there's an NR. I know it's my own fault for having so many HRs, but...

    That new update is causing one of my most dependable 20-700s to randomly reboot. Did it twice since the download. Haven't checked the others yet. Seems to be nothing else wrong with the 20-700 and, hopefully, the next NR will resolve this issue.

    It looks like 0x0576/4576 has been replaced in the stream by the last CC 0x057B/457B.

    Yes, that is true. Moving forward, I wouldn't be surprised to see that change again.

    Well that depends how quick this NR is distributed. You must remember DirecTV doesn't want to make too many changes in those moving from the SDGUI to the HDGUI. And this NR release speed probably depends on how many calls DirecTV get from the DMAs that get it next week.

    But I do expect a rapid run of new NRs, each with small changes, after the customer base get familiar with the basic HDGUI layout.

    Respectfully neither of us are fully qualified to say what DIRECTV wants or does not want. Common sense dictates that they want the most stable release possible and for that they will likely ensure that the most stable release rolls out.

    I wish I knew what you guys were talking about. The last version I got on my HR 21s was Ox4d1 back in August. I sure would like to see something that would speed these things up but I have given up hope on that.

    What they are saying is it's better to suffer thru these "small" NRs to ensure a stable NR when we get the HD GUI. This is a good thing, not something that they do to annoy us. The last thing we need is an unstable NR for the HD GUI.

    The firmware server appears to be down. Is this on purpose?

    It's a site that is run by a member here, it's not owned by the DBSTalk or DIRECTV so it could be on purpose.

    It was down last night, came up for a little while, then went down again. Dont see any reason it would be on purpose. Might have to do with all the internet outages out west due to the windstorms.
