    If it is useful to some, make them turn it on. Don't make me turn it off..

    Why is the HR23-700 still on software 57b?

    Good question, my H23 and HR24 are both on 59c for a couple weeks now.

    There are several things that are defaults that are useless to me. Fortunately generally it's a set once and never touch it again situation.

    It's just not a big deal.

    Yours just hasn't been updated it. It will be eventually.

    I have a 23-700 and received ox59f last night and was wondering if this was for fixing some bugs or if it added some new "features"

    59F is functionally the same as 59E, probably just some under the hood "tweaks" meant for the HR21-700 and HR23-700.

    I have noticed a couple of problems with 59f. While watching a couple of recorded shows last night, the video and audio would pause for a couple of seconds then continue. It happened 5 or 6 times during two recorded shows and no one was near the remote.
    The other problem is with trick play. It has once again become too sensitive to 30 second skip forward and skip backward. Since 59f I have had several times when skipping forward, it would go to the end of the show. Also, a few times when I went too far past the end of a commercial and hit the skip back multiple times, it went to the beginning of the show.

    Strange but I'm not complaining. Just started watching the Today Show at 7:05 am, and Directv has decided this is the time to send my HR21-700 the 59F download here in central Illinois. So much for them sending downloads during the middle of the night. Not missing anything on tv...just more rehash of super tuesday crap. Pandora here I come.:)

    My HR23-700 is still waiting for 59f. Anybody know when the staggered rollout is expected to reach Philadelphia?

    Got 59f on my HR23-700 here in Kansas City Mo. I like Pandora at work but will rarely listen at home. Would gladly trade it to have tirck play back in the PIG.

    I don't think so. The R15 still works great, responds fast to remote commands, and hasn't lost any popular commands (dash dash delete, PIG trickplay, etc.). :D

    Do a menu reboot twice within 30 minutes. This will flush your guide data but after a few hours you'll have Pandora, YouTube and MyDirecTV.

    Sometimes it can take a week, so don't "double reset" to rebuild the Guide data quite yet.

    Ive been doing the CE program for years, but after last weekends CE I returned to the NR software, then I was updated 2 days ago to this version and the extras are not showing up.

    Everyone who has done the double reset has had Pandora and Youtube show up within hours of doing so. It is a fix.
