    Thanks for the info. Yeah, I wasn't going to force it based on the previous posts I'd read. I was just curious if the update received this morning indicated that I would soon be getting the new GUI.

    How do we give feedback that D* will actually listen to? I realize they sometimes read this board, but going thru a large number of posts might be a waste of their time.

    Well there been some posts about CenturyLink adding a feature for those who have CenturyLink. Other than that, I don't have a clue.

    Issue: 2 dvrs in a frozen picture (only) state on power on/with tv. I do a channel change and all seems normal. One time each has done this, this morning second occurrence total. 0x0576. First occurrence was maybe a week ago and in the afternoon.

    Would be nice if anyone has seen this? To maybe say something to the issue.

    12/06/11...I think that is the same day the xbox360 also releases its new UI. My wife and son will be completely confused if both change on the same day.

    As to the poster that is having trouble after forcing the update, I think it was eluded to earlier, but it sounds eerily like a HD potential failure to me. The new software could have put down in a bad sector, or the buffer could now be in one, etc. I had an HR20 that did the same thing after a normal software update a while ago and it eventually required a swap.
    Of all of the variables involved, that's the one with the most chance that something will go wrong given their failure rates.

    After the DL, each new software version does an equipment check. These improve checks have found issues on some receivers that its current software versions haven't spotted.

    It's a sooner or later scenario. So. the only thing they can do is watch as much of the DVR content before it become a necessity that the receiver be replace.

    This happen to me with a H21-100. But with no recordings to worry about, it was a simple swap as soon as the new receiver arrived. But for two mornings, I would turn on my bedroom TV, only to see that annoying message about contacting DirecTV.

    I thought about the fact that the replacement DVR D* sent was a bad unit , but at the same time I don't know why it isn't working now when it was fine before the download and for 2 weeks after.

    I guess I can just wait until I see 0x576 back in the stream, then call D* and tell them my receiver is bad again. I just don't understand why 0x04D1 even when it shows up active on the stream for my H21-700 I cannot force download it to my receiver.

    I cannot be the only one who has had this happen. I refuse to belive this is specific to my receiver.

    Update: For whatever reason I decided to do one more force download after seeing 0401 still active in the stream, and now it's downloading it. So hopefully going back to the SDUI will solve the problem until they repush 576 out to my side of the country.

    Well the last CC (Customer Candidate) is currently in the stream for some receivers. Have no idea why. So I would say, you should look for 0x057B/457B.

    Right now, I'll just take some stability. :) Though now that I am back on the SDUI I'm noticing that everything is good until I use any DVR function. So GreyGhost00 may also be onto something with the HD. Diagnostics isn't showing anything wrong, but I've been an IT long enough to know how a hard drive problem can affect an entire system.

    Right now I'm also looking at heat-related issue. I'll see what it's like after keeping it off for a day and then using the DVR.
