    Since the update my HR24 is slow, slow, slow! Did an RBR which didn't fix it. Everything had been working so great but not now.

    After an hour on the phone DTV is dispatching a replacement receiver. Bummer. Two replacements in a year. I really wish they could sync my recording schedule to the cloud so I didn't have to re-do it on the new receiver.

    You could start using an external drive. You'd still lose recordings, but I believe the series links would survive

    Received 66d at 4am this morning on the HR24. So far I see no problems.
    The HR23 is still waiting for the update.

    As did I, however my HR24 was quite sluggish until I did a restart through the menu. Now it's back to normal.

    I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to see with this update. I understand it has something to do with quicker On Demand, but I'm not recognizing how to access it - or which levels of On Demand to which it applies. Is it only for Directv Cinema movie offerings, or does it filter down to regular On Demand programming as well?

    Bring up the guide. If you see a little white triangle in the upper corner of the channel label this means that On Demand content is available. If so, then left arrow to the channel label and press Info. Now you'll see what's on for the next few days and there is a new entry for On Demand.

    Oh, so it's basically what I already have on the HR34 then?

    I guess so. I don't have an HR34.

    Just got the update this morning and I noticed that every time I turn the channel the STB switches from 1080i to 720p then back to 1080i. I know with native on it switches the format to whatever is being broadcast but before the update if I was watching HBO (ch501) in 1080i and hit channel up to ch502 the channel would turn to ch502 without any resolution change because ch502 is still 1080i format, now it goes from 1080i to 720p back to 1080i. This is very annoying, have anyone else experienced this?

    Received this update this morning, been 1/2 day all my season passes show 0 eps to record & lots of info missing or wrong in the guide. Some shows are listing the seasons as over and list the data this seasons started. This is a major screw up.

    Reboot your receiver and see what happens. Did you force the update?

    I'm seeing the same thing. On occasion, I'm also seeing a fleeting notification that it is trying to establish some strange mode (not 480i or 480p or 720p or 1080i or 1080p) that my set won't support.

    A few time my tv flashed a message telling me that something is unsupported. The messages flashes away to fast for me to read it in detail. Is that what you mean by fleeting notification? this is killing me.

    Yeah. That is what I mean. It disappears too quickly for me too read the message beyond what I said. I think we are seeing the same thing. Actually, as I remember it, I think this issue started with the update before the current one and it has persisted in the current release.

    Got 66d on my HR20-700 & HR21-200 Tuesday A.M.

    The update apparently dumps the guide data completely. First look in the A.M. after the D/L the 700 listed only two SL's and the 200 only one.

    They both slowly populated the guide (biggest part of a day) and all SL's are listed again and all looks normal.

    First impression is that the HR21 responds more snappy than before. This box has always been slow as mud compared to the HR20.

    jdspencer -- what does all of this mean?

    Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.

    Thanks.
