    You have to do it twice withing 30 minutes .. Menu reboot or RBR .. If you only do it once in a 30-minute period, it doesn't flush the guide data.

    I did it like you said before, one right after the other. The double menu reboot didn't work 3 days ago so I tried the double RBR a few hours ago and just a little bit ago put it in standby mode and now I'm waiting to see what happens...

    BTW, why is it called "flush the guide data"?

    Sorry for the late response, but I've noticed that my HR20-700 is running much better now with this update. It was running sluggish before.

    Think of it as flushing the toilet, when you flush the toilet you're getting rid of stuff. When you flush the guide you're getting rid of future guide data that needs time to rebuild itself.

    I have been waiting for this new release to get pushed to me, but it still has not, I live in the SE about 2 hours south of Atlanta, I run 2 HR24's one is a 200 one is a 500. I decided to force a firmware refresh and I got the original firmware I was running before. How long should it take for this to get pushed to everyone?

    I get it, because channels without logos look like $#!+

    I have done both of these methods several times over the last few months. The logos never show up. Just one or two capital letters with ... following. I just tried the rbr method again a few minutes ago. Will wait and see what happens (if anything). FWIW I do have the new channel banner. Even my H20-100 has more logos than my HR24-500.

    The best answer is just be patient. There is no reason to try and get it, the whole point of a staggered release is so not everyone gets it at the same time. Give it a little time and it will be sent to your receiver.

    Your post is on the same page for me .. 3 posts after the first one .. :shrug:

    Unless you know exactly what (and when) your doing things, forcing a download probably won't do what you think it will. For example, the previous national release is the only thing available to download at this moment in time .. Forcing now wouldn't give you the new one no matter how many times you try nor what version you have on your system now.

    Secondly, there have been cases of lost programming when going backward in versions .. Not something you should risk in most cases.

    Sorry for being too cryptic. The firmware loaded on our system. I wrote "Fail" because of the whole banner issue, especially the increased steps to get to closed captions. We turn captions on/off frequently, to catch a single mumbled line of dialog or, as others have mentioned, to understand the dialog in shows with non-American accents (and even some American accents). I have a programmable remote, so I can make it one-touch again, but the more steps the slower the macro in executing. It should be easy to turn the closed captioning on and off quickly.

    Given that closed-captioning has been a hot-button item before, I'm surprised and annoyed at a change that makes it more difficult to use.

    I'm happy people have put me on notice about not changing the 2-second setting for the banner to disappear, I'd be even more ticked if I lost that.

    Oh, and has anyone mentioned that it's ugly, ugly, ugly?

    As for improvements under the hood, I have noticed nothing.

    It can sometimes take a couple of weeks to get pushed to everyone. I still don't have it in NY.

    Not sure why some people are so impatient that they decide a force is in order. Just let it be, I promise it will show up all on its own.

    What's your hurry? There aren't any great improvements in it just a change in the interface.

    I came home the other day to all my receivers being on and there being a new design to all the info screens. I assume DTV sent an update. well now all my receivers dont work and need to be programmed. I have tried about 15 codes for a Sony and still cant get it to work.

    Did this happen to everyone else? and anyone have a code I can try.

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes, there was an update, there's a sticky in the Hd receiver forum. But are you saying the remote no longer turns on your Sony, etc? That's in the remote itself, not the receiver. Did the switch at the top of the remote get moved to the wrong position?

    Thanks for moving, was going to post link to this thread, but couldn't figure out how to get the address with the iPad app.

    It's been 36 hours since I last "flushed the guide" and still no logos on any D12 channels. :( Maybe my DVR is broken. :confused:

    I have a receiver still missing some logos. If I flush, they sometimes come back, but then will disappear again on a subsequent restart.

    I'd give it another 24-36 hours and if they still aren't there, try flushing the guide again.
