    I received the update last night on my HR20-700. I have never had any "searching for signal tuner 2" issues in the past. Thanks to this "update" I do now. Every time I switch the channel to tuner 2, the searching for signal message flashes onto the screen for 1-2 seconds, then the channel comes in fine.

    We are having some more weather issues here in Chicago, so my signal strengths are down a little bit. This is what i have tried so far:

    1. I ran a test: Tuner 1 (89%), Tuner 2 (66%).
    2. Re-ran Satellite setup. No change.
    3. Switched Inputs. The problem stayed on tuner 2.
    4. Reset box. Then ran a test: Tuner 1 (89%), Tuner 2 (75%). I then switched channels a few times and ran the test again: Tuner 1 (89%), Tuner 2 (67%).

    Other than the annoyance of the message popping up on the screen and the resulting delay in the channel change, it is not yet a major issue. I just hope it does not get progressively worse.

    I would rather have Tuner 2 functioning normally, instead of QuickTune. Thanks D*.

    Connected VIA HDMI/Vizio VZ47LF/AT-9 Dish

    HORRIBLE consistent cyclical audio stuttering on nearly all recorded programming and increased video stutter on live television when coming out of pause for appx. 30 seconds.

    Ive had some small issues with this on other releases, but the level of stuttering on this release for me has been ridiculous.

    DirecTV, please address this issue.

    You know, it would not surprise me if the issue happens around tick marks. When I think about, when I navigated back to where I was watching at the time of the skip-to-end, I always seemed to find my place close to a tick mark. I may do some testing later...

    Everything has been fine until now with transcoded video via mediatomb. Went to watch a video yesterday and none of them work and noticed I received the update yesterday morning.

    Anyone else having mediashare issues? Very convenient to happen the day before xmas, because ya know, nobody ever watches home movies or anything over the holiday.

    Many places have moratoriums on software changes over the holidays. Perhaps Directv should also.

    I have an R22. We got the upgrade overnight. This morning the Searching for Signal on Satellite 2 happened. I reset and it couldn't come out of it. We have very wet snow falling in Chicago right now so I checked the dish. It had a coating so I s-l-o-w-l-y climbed up and cleared the snow. I then reset again and it completed this time.

    On the D* Installer forums, one of the installers asks about R-22s and the gray lbx on top and bottom of the screen on On-Demand recordings and gray pillars on the sides of the screen for users with widescreen TVs. He was told this would be taken care of on this update. I haven't tried any new on-demand but the older On-Demand still have gray lbx bars at the top and bottom.

    I checked HDTV in the settings and it is still only possible to set screen resolution.

    The channels list for setting up favorites lists is much better in some ways, much worse in others.

    It's good that there are now descriptions, but would be better if it showed both the name and the description, instead of just the description. Also, many of the descriptions are so long that they're chopped off, so there is no HD designation for those channels. The HD local names are weird too.

    Hopefully somebody will go through and at least edit the descriptions a little bit better. Showing the channel name as well would be nice, though.

    For version 0x02AF on the HR20-700, report id #20081224-2445:

    Adding resolutions that the TV handles displays strange and confusing test screens. I had my HR20 set for 1080i only, but I got a new TV which handles all the resolutions (Samsung pn50a450), and when I selected each new resolution to be checked: (1) a screen with a yellow prompt at the bottom was shown very briefly, (2) this screen was expanded vertically and a dim version was shown with the prompt (I'm guessing) off the screen at the bottom. Then as soon as I pressed any button, (3) a new foreshortened picture was displayed, occupying less than half the total height of the screen, and finally the next button I pressed, the display returned to normal. When I finally figured out that I should press the Info button to enable each additional resolution (not easy because I couldn't read the prompt that presumably told me this), I did manage to enable the additional resolutions.

    HR 20-700

    I filled my 9 quick tune squares and selected one of the channels. It properly tuned to that channel but from that point forward I could not change the channel. The banner would change but it would not tune into any other channel. Going to the guide didn't help. Going back into quick tune didn't help. I rebooted and things returned to "normal". I haven't tried quick tune again since I don't want to have to reboot.

    I accidentally duplicated a channel in quicktune. How do I delete it? Anybody know?

    While listening to XM I am having the info screen pop up and stay on after a few minutes. If I exit that display it just pops up again a few minutes later. The screen saver never does come on. I am afraid to listen to music for fear that the display will burn in.

    Just designate some other channel for that spot in the same manner as you entered the first. The new will replace the old.

    Welcome to the 771 Club! However, this problem was occurring on my HR20 with the prior FW and this one as well. :(

    I notice a few others are having audio problems with this software release. Like the guy who tried three TOSlink cables to try to get digital audio working again. My Sony HT DDW700 stoppped recognizing the digital signal from the toslink right after this upgrade. The receiver says "UNLOCK" when it tries to look at the optical cable--which is a Sony troubleshooting code for "I can't decode whatever the heck I am being sent." Everything was fine before this upgrade. Is there any way I can downgrade back to an older version of the software?
