    05D2 on day three and it seems to have fixed the laggy playlist and post delete issues from my old (Feb.) 059E. One funny issue - on cold start, first channel input from keypad won't take - good thereafter.

    I think my audio problem on double play is fixed. Will try more later.

    I have two HR21-700s and both are working well with version 5d2. Looks like your having a hardware issue to me.

    I just received a new HR24-500 for free today and swapped out my old slowly going HR22-100. Took advantage of free receiver update. I was wondering how long does it take for the software to update? I cannot believe the speed of the 24! Outrageously fast!

    Never used anything of the DTV DVRs except the HR34 and the slower HR24. If you think that the HR24 is fast, you should try an original Series 3 TiVo. Zero delay. HR34 takes two to three seconds to respond, HR24 takes four to five seconds to respond.

    A known fact on the internet, is if your page takes three seconds to load, it will be closed before it opens. Couldn't the HRs be at least as fast as the back and forth over hundreds and thousands of miles as the internet?

    Thank you for this info, I have been looking all over as to why this is happening. My Slingplayer was getting the error while the TV was off.

    I do not have the 5d2 software, I am still on 0x5cd.

    I still believe it is a software rather than a hardware issue.

    Been on 0x5D2 for a few days now on an HR20, an HR22, and an HR23.

    It seems that the 720p bug and handshake issues are resolved.

    On the other hand, there is an old Turkish proverb:

    Well now the newest downgrade is messing up whole home. The HR24 sees the HR34. HR34 does not see HR24, so I reset HR34. It sees the HR24, watch a show from the HR24, go to delete it at the end and HR34 disconnects from HR24 list. Reset HR34, still does not see HR24. So reset the HR 24. Still no connection to the HR24 on the HR34.

    I give up on these POS boxes. Tomorrow the DirecTiVos go back on line. HD is wonderful but these boxes are totally frustrating on a daily basis. Look for a sale on some owned boxes with 2T drives.

    Now that I've had 0x5D2 for about a week, some things are happening that weren't before.

    1. While the number of audio/video glitches is much less than previous, they are much more pronounced. Lasting longer and much more obvious, and some even requiring a channel switch and switch back to clear up.

    2. Audio completely gone after a skip is not uncommon, requiring a skip-back and then forward again. I had this loss of audio before, but very rarely, now more common.

    3. Overall speed has slowed some, not enough to really care, but noticeable.

    4. Remote response/ignoring is now showing up more often although not as bad as with previous versions.

    Well the double play no audio on "new" tuner is now fixed by the DOWNGRADE to both tuners when you go into doubleplay. Neither tuner has audio. Have to do HDMI switch on the receiver to get audio back. Sure wonder why we keep getting downgrades. Why don't these things just keep the buffer for the two tuners all the time like the TiVo? It's dumb to have to build a buffer to watch double play properly (without commercials).

    PLEASE bring back the SD GUI.

    With 05D2 I'm finding the guide is often slower to populate and respond. Not every time, but often enough to notice. When I press GUIDE an empty guide screen will come up, then it takes anywhere from 5 to 15 seconds to populate, and the remote won't respond at all during that time.

    The LIST function seems to come up OK though. That was a problem a couple versions ago and at least that seems OK now.

    HR24-100 0x5d2.... Can't 30 sec skip some local? commercials. Bug or "feature" ? I remember this happening one other time on a test release.

    The handshake problem when switching to a 3d channel has been fixed with this version. It loaded in last night and that was the first thing I checked this AM. Good fix programmers.

    Since all of my HR24's (4) have gotten this update, my HR34 playlist no longer alphabetizes the entire network playlist. The playlist is alphabetized by DVR, I.E. each of the 4 DVR's individual playlist is in order. This did not happen until I got this update. I hope they come out with a fix for this.

    Interesting. Since my 2 HR-24s have gotten this update, it corrected the playlist order problem. I have two HR22s and two HR24s. Prior to this update the 24s had the playlist issue when the 24s were on x059e and the 22s where on x05cd.

    It was discussed in this thread:

    They will, eventually. The HR34 is behind the HR2X's in the development process.

    Your issue was fixed because your client is an HR24, his is an HR34.
