    That suggest a bad sector on the HD.

    What software version is your HR22-100 running?

    Like the color scheme but seriously, WTF were they doing with the progress bar blacking out the bottom 1/4 of the screen?? And on top of that making it so freaking tiny that I can't tell where I'm at in the span of the recording??? Ugh! And my final complaint - how about some transparency to the thing? When I hit info or Play, I 'd still like to freakin see what is on the television!!

    Extremely disappointed - imagine that, DTV screwing up a GUI again.

    Believe me, there are many that agree with you.

    We probably going to need another thread soon - What HDGUI Changes I Would Like See Done.

    Okay, the default is scroll "on". I still can't get my guide to scroll, what's going on?

    Try turning it off, using it and then turning it back on.

    I hate to be a negative nelly, but I'm very disappointed in this new GUI. They got a lot of things right, but man o man did they muck up stuff. They really need to hire some graphics designers/engineers that know what they're doing.

    Tried that, no change. If I press and hold the channel up/down button, the guide will move up/down one page at a time but it just won't scroll, same thing with the up/down button. This is done with the original remote as well as the ip controlled iRule app.

    Got the new GUI a couple of days ago. It was all it promised to be that first day. As somebody who was constantly screaming at my TV at the slowness of the old system I was ecstatic at the new speed. But on the second day, all that new speed is starting to disappear and it's beginning to act as slow as the last guide. It looks nice but I'd rather have the ugliest GUI ever and not have to wait 3 or 4 seconds after every button press.

    Version 57B downloaded to my four DVRs between 2 and 3 AM yesterday morning. All seemed to go well as the various files, lists, etc. filled throughout the day.

    THEN, at 5:20 PM one of my HR20s became totally unresponsive to the remote or front panel controls. An RBR was the only way to regain control.

    Nothing has happened to the other HR20 or the HR21 and HR22 yet. I hope this was an occurrence unique to me.

    I noticed on the web site that tracks release scheduling that there is a version posted now called "058D" - could this be a newer version of the new GUI? The reason I ask is that I may have to force a download if they don't get Minneapolis back onto the schedule soon.

    Thanks,

    Big K

    Some of the versions on there are not ones for rollout. As far as I know, 57B is the version being rolled out with the new GUI.

    If you see anything other than 0x057B it would be a very bad idea to force a download, this will prevent you from getting the proper release.

    No more star ratings for movies in the info screen? That sucks.

    Scott is correct. Don't even think about 0x58d. It is not ready for prime time. I got it somehow and found many functions don't. Stay with the 0x57b.

    58D is a CE release. Not a good idea if you're not an Edge Cutter.

    D* replaced the HR24-100, and this fixed the above described problem. The new HR24 with HDUI 0x57b works great.

    Posted in another thread but suggested I also post here:

    Info that may or may not pertain to the new download of 57b:

    Yesterday an obviously local commercial was inserted in a program I was watching LIVE. (Yep, I still do some of that.) The commercial was low res, 4:3 and shown pillarboxed.

    However, after the commercial the picture did not return to HD 16:9 full screen. I had to manually cycle through the formats to return to the correct one.

    Wasn't that replaced with the popcorn rating stuff for you?
