    Pushed my 5 HR20-700 from 0x059E to 0x05CD over the weekend. What a difference. All the menus are now fast. The DVRs were unbearable to use before. I don't have any remote button issues or resolution problems. I did notice that for the first few days when I pushed menu, My Directv did not show any shows and loaded faster. Now I get recommended shows and menu and list load 1 or 2 sec slower than before. Overall, the DVRs are usable again.

    What the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks is going on here???

    I'll just repost the issue I had with 0x5c9, because it's deja vu all over again with 0x5cd:

    "My experience with 0x5c9 (and now 0x5cd):

    JVC Projector connected through a Denon 3808CI, fed by a HR21/100. Legacy system (no SWM), BBCs on. As of 05/16/12 no problems changing the channels, however when I went to watch on 05/18/12, I would lose the picture (and sound) when changing channels it and wouldn't come back.

    HDMI indicator would go disappear from the Denon display. I could get the picture back by switching inputs away from and back to the HR21.

    Changed the HDMI cable between the HR21 and the Denon: same result
    Connected the JVC to the HR21 directly: same result.
    Replaced the BBCs: same result

    Connected my HR23/700 (software upgrade 0x5cb - the one that used to work with the HR21) and voila - I can change channels w/o losing the picture."

    At least 4 different software versions over the last 10 days. 2 caused issues on the HR21 (0x5c9 & 0x5cd).

    Any reason that my HR20 and HR21 are running 0x5cd, but the HR23 is still on 0x5cb? They are all connected the same way - ethernet cable through the router.

    2 questions:
    How do you tell what version is "in the stream"?
    How do you "push" a new version to your box?

    Forcing a download doesn't do anything unless your area is already authorized for it. Forcing can also cause you to get software you don't want.

    I had the same HDMI handshake problem as well. I have a Denon AVR-789 and I had to switch to analog cables because I would lose the picture with the HDMI cable.

    You got that right and then some. I accidently picked the wrong time to force a download, and I got a version of the HD-UI which was not ready for primetime. Don't do it!

    If I force this 05cd on all my boxes and they cancel the rollout again will they be stuck at 05cd or will they still update in the future automatically?

    All the boxes in the house got the half rollout in the past couple weeks except the two problem children the two HR22s

    When DirecTV releases a version higher than the one you have the box will receive it.

    I have a very stable version of 59e that I got last Feb. It works perfectly fine for me.

    Of course, I never change channels, nor do I expect TVApps to work reliably. But as long as I don't touch any of the buttons on the remote, everything is cool.

    Now you're telling me that more changes are coming? What do I do if they mess up the channel I watch? The last time we had a big change, Larry King disappeared. Maybe the programmers have figured out how to get him back with the new release.

    I'm in the same boat. I stopped doing CE's a long time ago, just because everything was working so well. Now, everything including my lightning fast HR24 is way too sluggish.

    Actually, we're talking about a national release, and the Mods are the ones that set up this sticky to talk about it, so I doubt that you'll be scolded.

    Regardings stability, won't know until it hits the units. :confused:

    The release notes are provided to us as is. The only people who will ever read any release notes are those few of us that read forums. The notes are as they’re given to us. Everything DIRECTV supplies are what we post.

    The 99.9% of subscribers probably won’t even know they’ve gotten a firmware update let alone what’s in it. :grin:

    It’s a National Release so you’ll be able to determine how stable it is when it’s pushed to your machine. I have no stability issues and it's been rock solid for me. YMMV. ;)

    Anyone download VOD with this new firmware? Now gives you the option of downloading a compressed HD download. (I guess this is for people with slower internet connections)

    I have done a couple, but never got that option.

    0x5CB has been on my HR24-500s for a bit now. At first it was fine, slightly slower than the 0x5C8 it replaced, but overall a major improvement in speed of operation and remote response.

    Now since a few days have come and gone, it is starting to ignore the remote again on an oft occurring basis, and some things are slowing down. Specifically anything to do with the list of recordings and then actually starting or stopping one. Quite a long wait for most operations with recordings. Not good, imo.

    Graphical glitch on the info graphic. Reset fixes the issue.

    Last item first: the update comes over the satellite, and goes to specificly addressed boxes. You might get an update on 3 boxes on 3 different days and they might not all be the same release especially if they are different models.

    Sounds like there's an HDMI/HDCP issue between the new-version HR21 and your JVC projector. The Denon isn't really party to the transaction (except possibly stripping out the audio).
