    Ick...what did the do to the banner? It still looks like it was designed in the 80's. The old banner was much cleaner looking. This one looks like a cluttered mess.

    The Channel Banner went from clean to functioning.

    It was functioning just fine when it was just displaying the info it needed to.

    For you maybe, but I've been wanting to have the ability to add/remove a channel from my favorites list from there for a long time. It's much better for me now.

    A pretty unhelpful and intrusive release, with, as far as I can tell, really no improvements from my point of view.

    Options to turn this stuff off would be nice.

    Going over the top more and more often now.

    Based on the numerous reports on this model today, I suspect the HR22-100 firmware (HR12-100 & R22-100 as well) simply didn't stream properly overnight. Most likely it will happen overnight tonight for those that failed last night.

    There was a lot of under the hood changes .. The fact that you don't notice anything different (except the banner) is actually a really, really good thing.

    From the banner? That's exactly what you wanted to see?

    Yes! It's the logical place for add/remove channels from your custom favorites list. It especially comes in handy when they add an HD channel and the SD channel disappears from your custom list. Just key in the number, hit info when the channel comes up and add it. I'm anticipating having to do that again one of these days... <g>

    Pressing the yellow button really should give focus to the CC menu on the info banner - that is really my only complaint.

    I received the update yesterday on two of my boxes: one HR24-500 with no external drive and one HR22-100 with an external drive. They are connected via Whole-Home along with three other boxes. Ever since the download the Now Playing lists hangs up on both boxes. A reboot fixes it for a bit and then it hangs up again; sometimes it comes back on its own if I wait long enough. Didn't have that problem on these boxes before the download and don't have this problem on the boxes that have not received the update. Doubt if it's a coincidence. Now after going back to the Now Playing list on the HR24 I get "There are no recorded programs at this time." This is the second time for that and a reboot brought the list back.

    Why am I the only one here who hasn't received it? It's been raining a lot here, what if they sent me it but it didn't go through?

    Maybe this was speculated in another thread but I will spill the theory anyways:

    First: I liked the old banner in that it didn't have a giant white bar with low opacity blocking the middle of the screen. However, I like the new functionality.

    I am only speculating, but I would imagine the "under the hood" stuff plus the new functionality technically completes AND does a user experience "baby step" to the new HD GUI. Basically add the functionality first, then change the look.

    I, for one, am looking forward to the next CE release. I am hoping a new shiny GUI is included! (Or we could have more UX "baby steps".)

    Finally received the banner update and I like it. I think it will bring more awareness of these features to the average user, since its on the banner that pops up when you change channels. Someone hit the mark with this idea.

    This release is now downloaded to all of my DVRS. All show connected to the internet. While the welcome message says there is youtube search capability, It's not there for me.

    What am I missing?
