    Thanks for the info. I didn't notice that earlier today but now I'm seeing both popcorn and star rating on some movie listings.

    Since we're 103rd on the DMA list, I force downloaded 0x57B this morning at 5:25; went beautifully with no hiccups; guide has already repopulated; really like the new interface, much clearer with great graphics; I can see where some are annoyed by the lack of transparency, but that doesn't bother me. I want to thank all of you who post and gave me the information, techniques, and courage to force the download; I wouldn't and couldn't have done it without you!

    I had another occurrence of the format problem I reported in #859. After a local commercial insert the display stayed 4:3 and required me to manually cycle through formats to get back to the correct one.

    Might I suggest some rose colored glasses for Christmas?

    Received this update 6 Dec on an HR24-500. Once Playlist is selected, it's taking at least 10 seconds for the playlist screen to appear, significantly slower than before.:scratchin No change observed after restarting receiver as well as clearing VRAM. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Update 1802 CST 11 Dec 2011
    Sorting of playlist also now taking 1 full minute....prior to update was under 10 seconds.

    I downloaded 576 when it was CE on my HR24-500. When it's my turn to receive the latest HDGUI firmware will my receiver automatically download it or do I have to force download the current NR 57B when in stream to start receiving NR again? I am in the Los Angeles, CA DMA with no ETA of the HDGUI.

    You'll automatically get a newer version when its available, no forcing needed.

    So, is 0x576 the HDGUI NR or is it the 057B? I forces 576 about a month ago. Will I get an automatic upgrade to the NR if 576 is not the one? Been running smoothly BTW.

    057B is the NR. And yes when the upgrade comes to your area it will upgrade from 0576 to O57B. That's how it worked with me

    If you have 576 you clearly know if it's HD or not.

    You misunderstood. I never said 576 wasn't HD. I asked if it was the NR, and if not, would 576 be upgraded to the NR. :)

    I think his main question was whether it was the NR, not if it had the GUI. Of course, its not anymore.
