    I just checked, and ratpatrol is right. "DirecTV receiver" shows up as an option under AV1 and AV2, so crypter may be able to do it. If it works, it's possible you may be able to control up to 3 DirecTV boxes via RF with a single remote! /steve

    Got update in NE Florida last night. HR22-100

    Guide still a bit sluggish when first coming up. Quick tune is sweet...I definitely will use that.

    Have you done a reboot? My Guide is the Fastest that it has ever been. QuickTune is a very nice feature and something I will definitely use.

    You're both right, IMO. :) I found that it does take a bit longer for GUIDE to come up when you first press the button, but once it's on screen, it's much faster than prior NR's.

    The initial delay could be because more of the listing info is being cached in memory to provide faster access, but that's pure speculation on my part. /steve

    Steve, I'm sure you are right on the money as they are probably loading more of the listing data into memory to do just that, provide faster access without having to page more data in. I love the speed. Thanks Directv for listening to us as I use this alot of surf rather than channel surfing.

    And of course the BLUE button (Miniguide) has always been snappy. I've always preferred it to CHAN UP/DOWN. It's a very underrated (and I suspect underused) feature, IMHO. /steve

    I definitely have not gotten used to using the Blue Button for the Mini Guide but it is handy and I am going to use it more & more.

    I got the update this morning. I don't see why people are so excited about the Quicktune feature. I find it just as easy to just type in the channel number. It's basically the same number of keystrokes. I can only see this being useful for people who have a hard time remembering channel numbers.

    Haven't found or looked for a list, but I just got the update and my 52XBR4 finally works without any tricks (e.g. dash trick). It's connected through a Denon AVR which is doing HDMI switching, and still works fine!

    ..not that there's any cheap or interesting 1080P content on D* to feed it..

    One thing I'm noticing after the update is the "Searching for signal on tuner 2" message seems to be popping up much more often than it did before the update. It usually goes away after a couple seconds and then the channel comes in fine.

    I am definitely happy with this release on my HR21.. My HR20-700 has always been rock solid, but my HR21-100 has been a lot more troublesome. This release seems to have fixed a lot of the issues I was seeing.

    It seems they are caching more information when the GUIDE feature is called and it definitely scrolls faster. I'm also already making heavy use of QuickTune, and expect to use it heavily. Now to see if the Media playback feature is any more stable when using PlayOn & TVersity.

    Merry Christmas :)

    I already had a DTV recvr programmed in the Main DTV Mode for RF. When I switched to AV2 and tried the steps to set it to use RF it would not respond to the code 9 6 1.... I am guessing you cannot program more than one RF mode on the remotes.

    Got the updated in Philly today. I like the Quick Tune it complements our Harmony One favorites quite well and gives a nice option.

    I have noticed that the guide has been pretty quick of late and that continues for me with this release.
