    Sorry if I didn't make that clear... I got 0x1B4 at 3am Tuesday morning.

    Yes that is the current national release that replaced 0x18A.

    DirecTV on Demand is working very smoothly in Houston, TX.

    Admittedly it is slow to download but that is most likely a function of my internet connection. Unfortunately I am limited to 1.5Mbps AT&T DSL at my location. I have tried Comcast (formerly Time Warner) cable in the past and it is too unreliable. Tried to get AT&T U-verse DSL only, but AT&T tell me I have to purchase TV from them as well.

    Connected to my HR20-700 using 2 Airport Express routers (and an iMac 20").

    DOD library seems to have increased in the number of titles over night.

    Impressed so far!

    what is needed to run music and pics from computer if it's only XP media edition with cable connection ??
    dod menu running very well but would really like to take full advantage.
    when the menu for music comes the next screen shows "computers" with a string of letters and numbers as the "computer" name. click on that and all folders are empty. i have enabled "sharing" on original dod set-up, but nothing is shared.

    We received the 0x1b4 update at 3:30 - 4:00PM in the afternoon instead of AM. What a pain for the family.

    Anyway, now that we have the DOD how do we access it? Is it in the menu or do I have to call D to activate the feature?

    Go to advanced networking on the 720 and give this DVR a fixed IP. For example, if you have a Linksys router with IP, then those devices with IP from to will be naturally on the router's network without DHCP. Your 720 will then be immediately recognized.

    DOD should be available from the menu or by tuning to channel 1000. Of course, it will not show up if you are not connected to a network/internet.

    Received the new software Tuesday AM... Last night while watching Nip/Tuck, I had annoying audio dropouts. I was also recording the show at the same time. Wasn't sure if it was the channel, HR20, or both. This has happened before on other recordings when watching the recording while recording. I also posted in the FX forum since others also had some audio issues.:nono2:

    I have audio droputs for about 2 weeks now on all channels live and recorded shows I was hoping this software would take care of it but I guess not. I had this problem 4-5 months ago but it went away anf just came back. It is very annoying to say the least.

    So I just got two HR20s installed today. Both are on 18a. Will the latest be pushed down to me later?

    Do you have -700's or 100's?

    If you have -700's they should reset them selves soon and start downloading. When you connect a new unit after running for a few they normally reset and download the newest software.

    Is it a software thing or a hardware thing? I would rather not fork over for a service call and have Ironwood come out... For me, it started with the new series of software after 18a.

    Ugh... One is a 100, one is a 700. What the difference? :)

    The one I'm in front of is the 100 and even after a forced update it's only passing 18A.

    The -700 only has a digital optical and the -100 has a digital optical and digital coaxial.

    The -700 has an internal RF antenna and the -100 has an external RF antenna.

    The -100 has a 2nd ethernet connection that will probably never be used. The -700 only has one.

    The -700 has a little newer software.

    That is about it.

    I agree, that's pretty weak sauce (I've had DoD on the menu for a few days now and selecting on it still does nothing...I know networking works because Media Share works for me) Anything else I can check?

    I agree! I've tried menu reboot, RBR and cold reboot and nothing has changed. Still have the On Demand in the menu and no 1000 channel. I've been using Photo and Music for weeks and when I run a test it passes the internet test. I live in Columbus, OH and our HD forum users that's posted has said their DoD worked fine the morning of the push (Tuesday).

    I think there is a much bigger problem here with the DoD on the new upgrade, it's not going to just take some of us a few days or weeks for it to start working. I want to call D* about this, but I know that is just going to aggrivate me when I'm all done dealing with someone that's going to try to walk me through a reboot and a test...

    I feel very fortunate in that I received the upgrade Tues AM and DOD was working right away. Took a day for programming to load but boy there's a lot to choose from.

    There are numerous threads to search in the HR20/HR21 forum, but Mr. Ravens is essentially right. The difference in the end is, there is no difference.

    Okay, so I did get the update and it scared the crap out of me. I leave my amp on all the time and just turn the DVR on/off. I guess when it rebooted for the update, it came back up in ON mode instead of returning to the "OFF" position. Unfortunately, I had been listening to XM-BPM last - VERY LOUDLY.

    So I was awakened to very loud dance music at 4 a.m. Tuesday morning.

    I'm not complaining, I just thought it was funny. Naturally, I was a little scared when I first woke up but then I realized what had happened and couldn't do anything but laugh about it.
