    All CE chatter has been and will continue to be removed from this thread. If you want to talk about a release other than the National Release we have a place for that.

    Because the version you downloaded was a CE.

    I don't mean to talk about the CE but I'm a little confused. If this release were talking about is eventually going to be pushed out to all receivers then why is the current CE still a customer candidate.

    The CE program is a running process. It doesn't end with a NR. They could continue to fine tune the NR until they think they can't get it any better without doing a High-Rick CE.

    It was also rumored that the first release was limited to employee's accounts. But haven't seen that verified.

    To keep more up-to-date of what is being release always monitor the Firmware Watcher site and see what is being distributed in the wee hours.

    It appears that with the new GUI, I have to press 7 buttons, beginning with Menu, to get to the To Do List. Is there a shortcut?

    Unfortunately, the only way is through a remote that can do macros, but I know my harmony can't do that many steps.

    Great idea! But I bet no one at D* has thought of it. More than likely they'll post an email after the rollout! :)

    A side question here. Does the reboot take as long with new update or is the reboot still taking a little time to restart the receiver?

    Reboots still seem to take about as long. Actually, I think at one point, quite a while ago it seems, the boot up process was sped up, especially in step 2.

    The part that's always cracked me up is the "a few more seconds".

    I cant seem to get his todo list to work on it. I hit the button three times, three different results, none of them todo list.

    Thanks for the info. Still waiting on east coast for the update. Usually, I get the second week. With this being such a major update, not sure if that will remain the same!

    No. You're not downloading new software. But the installs are the same.

    Ach, you're right. Sorry, I haven't used it much since I got the iPad. Dunno when changes in the set up in the CE's made that one not hit the right sequences.

    The new Channel Banner NR took six weeks for me. This one is going to be just as slow to get completely distributed.
