    wed night i got a software update which gave me a nice new feature. When u hitthe up button on the remote i now get a 9 squared board that allows me to put in 9 channels for quick acsses to them. However my hr20-700 did not get this update. Anyone know or get this update for the hr20-700 or know when it will be released?

    Easy guys.

    I think that is strange that both of your boxes didn't get the update. Maybe it was recording something at that time? Not sure. It should pull the update at some point.

    What? I have the new software...it might be receiver (HR2x-x00) specific. I have an HR20-100.

    No update on my HR21 here in the Houston area :(

    So do all the HD channels have logos now or is it just a few?

    Considering how long it takes the receiver to change a channel, it could take up to a full minute to fill all nine positions with a current thumbnail. I understand why they didn't put thumbnails in the quick-tune feature.

    Wouldn't you need 9 tuners in order to do that though?

    I did it. worked like a charm, used code set 00004 because i only wanted to reprogram one set on my universal remote. (was using an rf emitter with black tape over the receiver so it would not receive ir when using one of the other boxes) now clear with no interference. just have to get another emitter for the multiplexing around the house. i have 2 hr 20-700 and 1 hr21-700 stacked. the change was made to the hr21-700.

    The only thing I'd like to see in QuickTune (that isn't there now) is the title of the program currently being shown on the channel that's highlighted in the grid (I'm pretty sure the Hughes receivers did that). Even without that, though, it's still a nice feature, especially for sports. Suppose there are three games that are on at the same time that you want to watch - put all three on different spots on the grid and tune right to them (this is especially convenient if the HD channel has a -1 suffix on it).

    I have a Harmony 880. Montha ago, I created a macro for the down-arrow that issues three FF commands. This has always worked flawlessly. After 0x02AF downloaded, the same macro resulted in FFx2 instead of FFx3.

    Increasing the inter-command delay on the 880 solved the problem, although it noticeably increases the time to reach FFx3.

    I have yet to get the update. This is the longest I've had to wait for an update.

    BTW, if you really dig that quicktune feature, the Opera web browser offers a very similar feature (but for websites, not tv channels, of course).

    When you open the browser (or a new tab) you're presented with a 3 x 3 grid of websites. The grid even shows a thumbnail of the websites, although it's from the last time you manually refreshed the thumbnail, rather than showing the website's current state. Also, the dimensions of the grid are changable so you can have a 5 x 3 grid for your widescren monitor. That's something Directv might be able to add to their quicktune feature.

    That's not how I envision it would work. DTV broadcasts all kinds of things to our receivers in addition to the individual channels. They could separately broadcast a feed of periodically-updated thumbnails of all non-adult channels that would provide the data for the Quickview function. To my mind, it would be far more useful than the "Action" feature that has weather and lottery results and takes up space on our remotes. :)

    I second the motion, but I'd like to see it list the current program title for all 9 QuickTune channels, so I could glance and check, then change to the one I want.

    Maybe they could change it from a grid, to just a quick mini-guide menu of currently playing programs, then have the number of items configurable in the setup.
