    Exactly... If you were using 30SLIP you wouldn't have the behavior.

    Guess I misread it. I'll give it a try. Did this happen before this upgrade? I don't remember seeing it before.

    30 second skip not working on locally inserted commercials has happened on and off a couple times now. There are a few threads around here about it.

    Can you define "no more bugs"? Which bugs exactly did it fix for you?

    BTW... I have a convertible, black 2002 WS6 exactly like your icon picture. :D

    The problem has been resolved for my AVR (Anthem MRX-500). Resolution changes are stable and follow the native setting in my HR23-700. DirecTV to Anthem to Samsung UN60D7050.

    Not fixed update #2. The DVR subsequently died after another reboot loop & it detected hard drive errors. Replacement receiver on the way.

    I see that I got 5D2 a few days ago - gonna go back to HDMI and see how that works for me.

    Along with the resolution bug from the previous release, I also got the hideously long delays while trying to access and/or scroll through the guide. Not sure if that's been fixed with 5D2 on my HR21P or not, but I'll be looking for that. Based on your experience, I'm going to assume that I'll still be seeing it. :(

    I have two HD DVRs co-located, one for my wife and one for me. Mine is a HR20-100, hers is an HR22-100. Hers works fine.

    Mine recorded two shows, one on each tuner, Monday at 7pm, so there were no issues then.

    Wed. morning at 2am, got the latest update and since then, it shows a black screen and no audio. It shows the channel banner, which updates when the channel is changed, but no program material. Looking at the shows that have been recorded since the update, it shows a progress bar at the bottom and appears to play an entire half-hour or hour long show, but the screen is black and there is no audio.

    I can watch shows recorded before the update occurred with no problems.

    I had the same problem a month ago, after the previous update, but unplugging it worked to fix the issues then. A RBR or reset from the menu did not work. Now nothing works.

    I have a 1TB external HDD which is 78% full.

    After running the self-test, I get error 43-494 Dish Pointing Problem and code 771 when playing one of the blank recordings. This is curious, because there were no problems with either channel up until Monday evening and the other DVR works fine. They each get two feeds from my 16-way multiswitch. I connected a different pair of cables from a third DVR and it made no difference.

    The technician is coming Tuesday morning and I expect him to tell me to remove the eSATA drive and reset everything. I would love to hear him explain how the software update caused the problem, but do not expect that.

    Does anyone have any helpful information that would help to explain and resolve the problem? If so, thanks for posting your helpful reply.

    My main problem with 5D2 on my Hr23-700 is the speed and response time (or lack there of)...often can't enter more than 2 digits...scrolling is slow....channel changes can take several seconds. It's much like the initial HD guide release.

    Well... I've been paying attention to the menu delays...and can note....

    The delays and hangs occur when scrolling thru menus with the "picture" banner channels.. Get into the on demand channels menu and it's a total loss for about 2-3 minutes before the system responds to the remote.

    Ever since my HR23 got it it has been dropping MRV regularly.

    EDIT: As it turns out the update hasnt caused MRV issues. The update just coincided with a network issue that has since been resolved.

    Since I got it, I have drop outs every 5-10 seconds on two of my local channels. Could it be the new update or is something else going on? I get the Greensboro locals and my signal strengths on that transponder are 98-tuner1 and 99-tuner 2. My other locals are fine.

    Received the 5d2 update on my HR22-100 on June 26th and since then, the box is very unresponsive. It takes 10-15 seconds after pressing guide before anything populates the grid. Really frustrating as the original HD guide update made things so much better and now it's worse than ever. I'm not under contract anymore and the option of dumping the satellite bill is becoming more attractive.

    Received 5d3 on the HR-24 yesterday. No more handshake problems (which were actually fixed on 5cd) but now when trying to move up or down on the guide, it skips. Volume changes also seem to move very quickly - it is hard to stop at the volume wanted without it getting ahead of you and becoming too loud or too quiet. So far, that's all I have noticed. Not sure what they were trying to accomplish with this up-date, but it sure doesn't seem to be a step ahead.

    I don't think the software update has anything to do with your volume issues. The DIRECTV remote can control the TV or AVR volume but is unaffected by receiver software updates. Your issue is related to something else.

    I understand your point, Go Beavs, but considering that everything worked just fine up until the 5d3 release, and that the guide skipping and volume jumping both started at the same time, I have to feel that the new release is the major contributor to the problem. Had it just been the volume issue, I would tend to agree with you. I don't use the D* remote usually, as I have RTI remotes on each of my systems, but I will switch over to it to see if it acts differently.
    Incidentally, I was born and raised in Portland - so I know where you are coming from!! :)

    I highly doubt the volume control is affected by the release, but my conspiracy theory side has to ask, what remote model number are you using?

    Hey guys I just had Dish ripped out and DirectTV installed yesterday.
    I had 2 Dish HD DVRs controlling 3 sets. One DVR was the 2 tuner model that controlls 2 sets. 1 HD and the SD. I had DirectTV install 2 H25s and 1 HR24. I notice that I'm possibly getting the same HDMI handshake issue with my Yamaha rxv463 receiver talking to the HR24. But this only seems to happen when I have native resolution turned on with the HR24. I seems to get lost sending the audio to my receiver after changing channels. However, after I turn native "off", This stops. Just checking to see if this sounds familier with you guys.

    Pros: Better and smaller boxes.
    Con: OTA antenna doesnt connect to the boxes like Dish. I miss having that option to look a OTA channels and have them show up in the guide.
