    maybe it's just me, but has anyone else noticed the DVR's are really quiet with this release? My HR21-100 got the update a few days ago around 2:30AM and until I got up and turned it on, I thought the thing had failed. I heard the initial hard drive shutdown as it went to reboot and then didn't hear anything else. After about 30 minutes, I got tired of waiting for the reboot noise and turned on the TV to see what was going on. It was happily chugging along without any issues. I also noticed last night that it was really quiet in the bedroom compared to the normal hard drive churning and fan noise I usually hear

    I got 62c this morning on at least the 2 HR24-500s that I control. Everything seems to work fine and channel switching is consistent, even if not faster yet. Right now it is repopulating those things that get cleared out, so I'll know better tomorrow about that.

    I have Native ON and all resolutions checked, so channel changing is a bit slower than it could be.

    Overall it doesn't seem to have changed much of anything, but it didn't break anything either.

    I finally received the update today. Everything is the same, nothing has changed, and I'm still missing the logos for 35 channels.

    What a difference a day makes! :)

    Channel changing is now much quicker than it was and most other functions seem a bit quicker too. So far, this has been a good update.

    And all the unpopulated things are now populated just fine.

    It is a puzzle as to how they do the rollouts for sure.
    I got it on my HR23 a couple of days ago.
    The HR24 got it yesterday.
    My son's H21 does not have it yet.

    It will come soon.

    Edit: the H21 got it this morning at 4 am.

    Reset your DVR and press 02468 when you see the blue screen, it'' force it to look for the update. Worked for me.

    I would suggest that you not do that, the Hx2x FW is not always in the stream so you will be wasting your time or you may download something you were not expecting to get and may be full of bugs, problems or may just wipe your DVR clean.

    One way of doing it which could be a PITA would be swapping DVR's to where the main DVR that's directly connected from the dish (at least that's how it worked for me since I have I don't have swm setup on slimline 5 dish) to which I understand they push updates faster that way but also changing locations on directv website under "my equipment" has worked for me but can be a PITA moving around especially if you also have EHD connected to each DVR.

    Where did you hear that? Not sure what was going on, but simply changing locations in your house will/should have no effect on when you get the update. Its usually based on zip codes and account numbers in general, and maybe even access cards, assuming that each individual model has an update to be released in the first place. Nothing to do with how its connected to your dish. You likely got the update because of the restart and maybe updating the sat settings or something, forcing it to look for new software, but not because it was in a different location or connected differently. Changing designations on the web site also should have zero affect. Again, its not based n these things.

    Truth is though, if you haven't gotten the update yet, there is likely a reason they have stopped pushing it out to everyone, and you might be best served waiting rather than trying to get it now.... Just a thought....

    There hasn't been a full rollout to everyone since that update as far as I know, which is why you haven't gotten it yet. Your likely on the end of the list, and they haven't made it that far yet.

    I am not sure if this is related to this software update, but I noticed tonight, the recordings set up in my series recordings are not automatically moving to a later time if available, but instead just show a "will not record" on the To Do list.

    It worked on my HR22 and HR24 connected to the same tv from the coax connection from the dish all other receivers are connected from zinwell switch, BTW I received SW on HR22 first where the main coax is coming from and then moved HR24 to same place after moving back HR22 to it's original place.

    Got the update a couple of days ago (HR21-700). So far, there've been no seriouss lockup issues, yet, as with the previous release (DVR would lock up, not responding to remote commands for 30 to 90 seconds maybe a couple of times per hour).

    Noticed with this release that the On Demand channels seem to have been reset - not there anymore - as if never connected to the net, so I don't know as of yet whether they've fixed those horribly-slow On Demand screens. (I don't keep a permanent net connection, but this is the first time those channels have disappeared). I'll probably try connecting when I get more caught-up with other viewing. Sure hope that's fixed...

    Also, guide banners not causing freezes, either so far (Yay!) but this could also be because OD functions haven't yet been restored. We'll see.

    Um. How exactly is your system wired? You shouldn't have any lines coming directly from a dish if you have a mult switch in the system as well. That makes no sense at all to be honest. Could be that is causing you an issue, whether you know it or not.

    They sometimes completely clear out all guide data with new firmware pushes (which I think they should do every time they have new firmware) and that likely purged all your on demand channels and such.

    Scott's point is still valid. When you force a download, you have no certainty what you are going to get, and some temp code will not let you go back to the prior version without losing all your recordings.

    The point he was making is particularly important in that you were advising someone to do something that put their system at risk. It's one thing for you to do as you like, taking risks with your own equipment. It is quite another to cavalierly recommend a risky procedure to someone else, with little thought to the consequences and then follow that up with an utter dismissal when warned.

    Not the advice anyone should be taking, without the appropriate caveats.

    I didn't mean any harm by it, since I was unaware it was "risky".
