Same here and so far everything is working great.
I recived 0x5cf yesterday on my HR22 - this unit is not used everyday and has had no problems in the past except for the normal slowness - noticed that it was no longer showing up on the Whole Home system so that was when I went to check and saw the update.
I will say, that scrolling channels now with the HR22 is the fastest I've ever seen with DirectTV, much faster than my HR20 or HR21 (both on 0x5cd)
The speed improvements are often temporary. Would be curious for an update in a couple days once it's "built back up" its other operating overhead
I also am having issues with two HR20's.
LMAO it's sad currently the HR22 is faster than my HR24 at scrolling channels. Both on this 05cf
Did ya'll force these downloads...I dont see a NR for this version.
Didn't force anything. I received 5cf on both HR21-700s last monday.
Mine arrived all on its own, yesterday morning (0x5CF).
Made my HDMI issues worse. I'll be going all component, now. Latest 720p problem didn't even having anything to do with "protected" content, this time.
I was pushed 5d2 this afternoon and it does not have any handshake problems.
When I had 5cf last Thursday, there still were problems. I then received 5d0 and the handshake problem was gone and stable. Today it was replaced with 5d2 that look good.
I received 5cf on my HR-24 last night, but I still have the handshake problem. There is no change in anything that I can see. The unit turns on, but as soon as you try to change a channel, or hit pause, or just about anything else, the screen goes blank. Audio is fine - it is just the picture that goes away. You also cannot access anything you might have recorded.
The work-around is still to turn on the D* tuner, and immediately hit the "active" button, which restores all the tuner functions - until you turn the system off again, at which time you must repeat the process. It works, but it sure isn't convenient. I am absolutely not willing to pull my system apart to eliminate the HDMI connections and go to component - that should NOT be necessary.
Why did we not get a message telling us what they thought 5cf would accomplish? Is there any way to figure out what they we trying to do with this latest release? This is just silly, in MHOP.
HR21/100 w/0x05cd from 5/17 =>HDMI=> Denon AVR-4310CI =>HDMI=> Panasonic P58V10
HR21 is set to "native", since I mainly watch HD I only noticed a couple weeks ago the "new" HDMI handshake issue: HD=>SD or SD=>HD requires changing to another input on AVR and back to re-establish audio and video. Or power cycling AVR/HR21/TV...but that's less fun. I also sometimes lose the (volume indicator) OSD from the AVR now when watching from the HR21.
Waiting for the fix, now that I know what's going on not a huge bother since like I said, not a lot of SD watching & changing back and forth. HR21 says no update scheduled.
I received 05cf yesterday morning. While the speed is better, the handshake issue still exists. I get flashes about every couple of minutes on my screen and this is the most annoying issue.
Samsung LED TV, Yamaha 710 receiver, and HR22.
Yeah, I get flashes on my HR23 running 05cf (both watching live and recorded programming). It's starting to really annoy me.
I've long ago disabled the "active" buttons on all remotes. Everyone in the household (including me) were getting tired of getting "dumped out" of whatever we were watching while fumbling for the "pause" key. (We all "grew up" with the TiVo peanut.)
Never found the "active" feature useful for much of anything (or worth the time it took it to load) enough to need an accident key. I Guess it's still accessable buried way down in the Menu, or on the front panel of the DVRs. Can't even remember the last time I saw that channel.
Interesting workaround, though. I only lost tuner function once after the first restart after 5cf (Black screen, but still had banner - no audio). Powered down, then channel up and waited, it finally came back around 2 minutes later.
How did you disable the active button?
Now it's probably getting a little more OT for this thread (which hopefully can be closed as soon as we all get workable updates).
Suffice to say I use a small piece of tape during regular cleaning/repair.
How do you disable the active button???? I am using DTV remotes...
Never mind...I just saw your other post...
Doggone it, I have almost the same setup as you and was really hoping that the flashing issue would be fixed on 05cf. That really is the most annoying part.
Any chance of a photo of the tape placement?
Open the remote, put a small piece of electrical tape over the area on the circuitboard where the Active button would come in contact with it. The tape keeps the button from closing the circuit, so the button no longer works when pressed.
