    The rollout has not stopped .. The biggest "issue" that has been posted is with regards to the channel banner update. Most other issues can be attributed to coincidence related to a system restart (unrelated to firmware download).

    The channel banner was a conscious decision by DIRECTV, so while you may consider it an issue, it is unlikely that DIRECTV considers it an issue. In fact, I venture to guess that more changes are in store.

    No audio after update between HR24-500 and Sony 52NX800 HDMI connected, RBR fixed the issue. Also lost 2 recordings from list.

    Just tried TVapps on my HR20-100 and they are working.

    Problem must be on your end.

    I'll add my displeasure with removing CC from the yellow menu. I use CC all the time. I had it conveniently programmed into a macro on the remote. The same button turned it on and off because of how the old menu was organized. Now, with the changes, I need to relocate on the remote and create two macros: one to turn CC on and on to turn CC off. I don't mind it being on the new info menu. I just wish they had also left it on the old Yellow menu.

    Also, all my Cast & Crew bios are gone. Doesn't even display a name when highlighted. Not sure if they have to reload.

    I have noticed the update to all 3 bxs HR20-700,H24-100 and H23-600 like the banner set up.Noticed the same as others no apps available 301 code still initalizing shows on screen.Earlier when I noticed that on h23-600 I did try reboot but, it only changed the code number with the same message.Guess I,ll give it till tomorrow to see if it comes back if not will call Directv to see if they are aware .

    I finally got the upgrade last night. I like the new guide banner.

    Still no logos though. But at least today is Festivus!

    Update to no apps after new software noticed when I retired to bedroom that box h24-100 the apps worked fine.This was about 11:00PM possibly came back on this box because it was off all day.First thing today I checked my hr20-700 it still showed same message as Tuesday but,the h23-600 it was back working the apps.With this thinking I had previously rebooted the h23-600 before put had gotten a different code from the first so, after this it probably corrected it after the box was off .So,I rebooted the DVR and then turned it off for about an hour then checked all was good.The apps are important to my wife and I to keep check at all times on our home teams games in progress .Since everybody knows that living in the Phila. area and not getting CSN Phila. is our only life line 99% of the time.Besides it is a great feature not having to switch off what we are watching to be kept abreast of the scores on any channel as well as when watching recorded shows as well.

    I'd be inclined to do the twice RBR within 30 minutes with this release.

    Good luck!

    I just got the update today.

    The CC functionality, which is used more often than anyone thinks, now takes more key presses to activate!!! That's why on almost every other remote, there is a dedicated CC button. D* should at least put CC on or one click away from the default to reduce the number of key presses.

    Plus, D* made a GUI mistake. Things that are global to the receiver, like CC, shouldn't be in the channel menu bar which looks like it is specific to that channel. That's not where people would naturally go looking for options like that.

    By putting the CC and format options in the channel bar, people will think that it only applies to that channel. (That's how another box I have works. It remembers your format preferences for each individual channel.)

    I DO like the fact you can edit your favorites list on the fly while actually watching the channel.

    D* is obviously "clearing" the yellow button out for future use. I just wish the programmers weren't also designing the GUI.

    received this update yesterday in philadelphia.. no complaints here as i enjoy the slightly streamlined look of the bar... now to the HD gui... that i'm truly excited about getting to use in whatever form it might take.

    let's see if D* can offer it up before i the fios 1.9 update. i believe they might be able to do so since that rollout seems permanently stalled..

    8 seconds seems like a long time. I think the main point was to get rid of the 2 seconds option. It already causes problems with some receivers (including my H24), and I'm guessing when the HD GUI is released the boxes will be so slow they won't be able to honor the 2 seconds anyway. But having just two choices would look silly, so they added 8 seconds as an option.

    As far as what happens if you were using 2 seconds before the update, apparently there is a bug. They should just force everyone who was at two seconds to 4 seconds.
