    I'm trying it now on an H25-100. I tuned to a CIDG, then to a CIG. Waited 20 minutes without touching the remote. No screen saver appeared, tho.

    This H25 was on CE, but I believe it's now the NR: 0x04C6.

    I am seeing the same issue I had before the update:

    Shows that won't record because of a lower priority do not automatically get rescheduled to record when they are aired at another time.

    Hope this gets fixed soon!

    Model: HR24-100
    Diagnostics Report: 20110818-11C1
    Issue: TV Apps would not load

    My HR24-100 got the update yesterday early AM. All day yesterday TV Apps would not load - I kept getting "service unavailable (5)" message. My HR21-200 got the update a day earlier and TV Apps have been working fine on it. This morning I did a menu reset on the HR24 and now TV Apps are working fine.

    The above listed report was sent today before the restart.

    I tried to reproduce this on my HR21-700 and the screensaver didn't appear. Maybe I'm doing something different here as I don't see the error message you "can't navigate to" as bolded above. Is this message the "721 not subscribed message"? If so, it goes away when I tune back to a channel I do get.

    Ya. I tried again this morning on my HR24-100 and didn't see the screensaver after 25 minutes of not touching the remote.

    Wow! I've just begun rebooting all my HRs to get them back on MRV after getting all them updated in the last couple days and I can't believe how quickly the 20-700s are rebooting!

    I just rebooted another one and it was just as fast. Amazing.

    Actually, I was referring to the OTHER screen saver issue. When the screen saver is on while a program is paused the paused frame appears for a second then then screen saver comes back on. Think slow-mo strobe light. Very distracting and I've seen it happen for so long I can't remember when it started and can't say if a particular release has fixed it or re-introduced it as some point. But I'm experiencing it now with the current NR. I'll try an RBR and see if that helps.

    The bit about remembering sort order is really an obvious feature request (or feature restore if it was there at some point). Why can't the sort order setting be sticky? I can't fathom a possible explanation. None of my other settings are changed with every SW update. It is just annoying to have to navigate to the sort settings and change them every time there's a software update. Honestly that's the only way I notice a SW release.

    Does anyone not sort A-Z? How about changing the default to A-Z if saving the sort setting is a technical impossibility.

    Woke up to overnight upgrade. HR20-700 with eSATA, and the eSATA was not recognized, so I missed some scheduled programs as a result. (series links on the internal drive are not the same as those on the eSATA, which I have been using for over a year)

    Restarted (Menu), the eSATA was recognized, but when I hit LIST, it said no programs (2 TB drive, with over 100 hours of HD on it). Menu'ed around a few things, hit exit. Went back to LIST, and (whew!) all the programs reappeared.

    Keyboard entry of channel numbers is a mess. Refuses to respond to third digit of channel number. If I go into the GUIDE, all 3 numbers are accepted. Hopefully things will settle down after a few more hours. Right now, (and not atypically), things are pretty sluggish.

    Noticed that myself this morning, on my HR24-100. Funny thing is I do not recall seeing this issue (or reports of it) when we first got this release as a CE. :scratchin

    I've tried this on an H24, HR24, H25 and an HR21 and I can't reproduce it on any of them.

    That was fixed a while ago. I haven't seen that on any of my DVRs in a long time.

    The feature was there and then removed. DirecTV has their reasons why they removed it. Probably something to do with how much can be saved on a reboot. It may have come down to "do we save sort or do we save X?" and they went with X.

    I do not sort A-Z and would not want that as my default sort by any means.

    Got update at 3 am this morning. Don't have any trouble with entering numbers on the remote as some have posted. VOD menu isn't populated at all -- Each VOD channel in the guide just says "regular schedule [VOD]". Not sure if this will just take time. Most of my channel guide has repopulated. It's the same on both my HR 20-700 and HR 24. Guide pages quickly, after being sluggish for some weeks.

    Our UPL is so long, I sort A-Z to make it less confusing, even though I've got about 10 shows sorted by "The..."! :p

    That's why I wish they'd unify HISTORY as well as the LIST (and TDL). Then I could keep my playlist A-Z, but use HISTORY if I wanted to see (or play back) shows in the order they were recorded. Would be the best of both worlds, IMHO.

    HR-21 was complaining that the guide data had not updated in the past 10 hours and a reset should fix this. I power cycled the system since previous menu restarts were not correcting issues. I turned off the system around 2 AM and found the lights were back on at 6:00 AM. Must have reset or been reset some time between 2 am and 6 am.

    Well I have along UPL too, something like 60+ pages, but if I don't sort newest on top I'll forget to watch something. :lol:

    Ya. I know exactly what you mean. That's where a unified HISTORY could come in handy. I often play shows right out of HISTORY, if I know they're local to that DVR.
