    Isn't the purpose of a bookmark to be able to get to it when you want? Sounds like DirecTv screwed up. Hopefully, they will catch this error and fix in the next release.

    It bothered me too so I just use 1080 only and let the TV do the conversions. Looks great on all channels. Just turn off "Native".

    Then the receiver is doing the converting, not the TV!

    If you're using 1080 only, there aren't any conversions (save for one if your TV isn't native 1080).

    No!:eek:

    I'm quite happy with two seconds for the banner. If I want to actually use the menu choices I push the info button.

    My HR21-100 has gotten extremely slow to respond to remote commands. Been like that since Saturday. Probably going to have to reboot soon. I've not seen it this slow in a loooong time.

    I got the NR several days ago and all was well. Then last night my H21 lost all audio. I had to cycle the audio setting on the setup menu from Dolby to off (audio returned) and back to Dolby to get the audio back while in the Dolby setting.

    Edit: The issue got worse before it got better. Turns out, every time I changed channels I would loose audio - at least on the HDMI output. Cycling the Dolby Digital audio control would restore audio, but only until I next changed channels. Having Dolby on or off didn't make any difference. Whatever mode it was in, audio would die after channel change.

    I used Menu Reset, and right now audio is ok again.

    Yep, I had it backwards as Laxguy said.

    I have not beeen able to download anything using video on demand since the last software update. When I run system test it says everything's OK but it does not work for me anymore. Also it may be too much to hope for but someday I hope to see the caller ID feature work for me. It hasn't worked since DTV replaced my HR 21-700 with an HR 21-100.

    Selftest will pass even if there is a network problem... Check the Info details (below Run Selftest) and see if you've got a good connection.

    So how are bookmarks deleted with the new release?

    That's a good question. I was never able to get it to work in the previous release however.
    I read a post previously in this thread which sounded like there's no longer the capability to delete bookmarks.

    Pretty good NR. Caused me a couple small problems but no big ones. Just out of curiosity, since they put up all those options on the banner, wouldn't you think they could have put up the ToDo list there too?

    Well, yes, they could have. But the new banner already has information overload. ToDo can be accessed with the List button easily.

    What key sequence would that be exactly?

    Yeah, I like the banner with its drop down menus. As to its contents, well that's another matter.

    I too hope that make lots of improvements to it over the course of improving their software.
