    This fixed my missing OTA channel problem. Before this, I was only getting PBS stations 29.1 and 29.3. Now I'm finally getting 29.2 as well.

    In my ongoing saga of screwed up OTA channels, this morning one of my HR20-700s tuned to the local NBC affiliate frequency no matter which of the OTA stations I selected.

    Guide data: right
    Channel number shown in guide (5-1, 3-1, 13-1, 24-1, 30-1): right
    Frequency tuned: wrong, tuned to 5-1, (52) in all cases.

    I haven't received this update yet, but I sure hope it fixes this problem. It is getting a little old.

    Over the past 10 days or so, my H20-700 has become unbearably slow to respond to the remote. RBR didn't help at all. I've had the 0x214 release since 4/18/09, but didn't have a problem with it until recently. I've also had the strange black background/pixelated font on the Guide window. Is this a commonly known experience, and if so, does the latest release solve the problem on HR20-700's? I read the 0x214 thread, but couln't post my question there since it is now locked.

    How soon will the release come out to give us relief?

    Yes, this will be rolled to HR20-700s but it's making its way across the nation. It's hard to say when it will get to you.

    Am I correct in my thinking that something in this new release has caused units that haven't yet received the new release to be more problematic? I've never had that problem with past releases, but it does seem like things have gotten noticeably worse over the past few days, for me at least. Yesterday and today are far worse than prior days.

    So when is DTV going to address the phantom "Dish Alignment Fault" received during the self test?

    just out of curiosity, how long does it typically take for a staggered release to be fully rolled out? the release began on 6/3 and i've yet to get the update.

    I'm not really sure there is a "typical". Past releases have taken from one day to three weeks. It depends on a variety of factors that we are not privy to.

    I am temporally out of commission on CE downloads. We got several inches of rain last week and on Wednesday I noticed wet carpet in my basement. I set up a fan and then was out of town until today. When I got home the carpet was still wet. I had to disconnect my HR21 and move my internet routers to another area of the house. No MVR until I get the carpet dry (or replaced) and can hook everything back up. My 61" Sony, HR21, Slingbox, Onkyo sound system, computer desk and all network hookups had to be disconnected along with all baseboards to pull the carpet up. What a mess!!

    I can't say this is impossible, but will say that it is extremely unlikely. Nothing in the new software per se could be affecting your DVR that has not received it, but it is plausible (again, very unlikely) that something in the guide data or elsewhere may have changed.

    By far, the most likely thing is that it is just a coincidence that you started having trouble in the past few days.

    Got the NR on all nine HRs. One didn't recognize it's eSATA. Fixed that. My new 23 came up with 771 error message. Reset from menu and it seemed to fix it. Checked again and it was back. The 23 has been trouble free since I got it. One out of nine HRs. Two dishes, feeding the 23 and four others. No 771 on the other four. Just did a hard reset and the 771 is gone. For how long, I must wonder.

    Been raining heavily outside and that might be the cause, but out of 9 HRs why only the 23? All the rest, on both dishes have no 771 problems. Perhaps the 23 is more sensitive to rain fade? Rain should be gone in an hour or so and I'll get back then. We've had plenty of heavy rain the last couple weeks and I never saw a 771 on the 23. Just today after the NR downloaded.

    Have not been keeping up. I loaded a CE just for DLB. So stupid question is, I will be losing DLB when I get the NR. Correct? Or do the national releases skip DVRs with a CE?

    I have a HR20-700 btw.

    I have a HR20-100 that was updated today with 312. My other HR20-100 still has 2f4. :confused:

    Got this release this morning. I had issues with a bad mapping of one of the OTA channels (62-2 in the Austin area) which was giving me 771 errors and showing up with no signal in the signal meter. After redoing OTA setup, the signal meter for 62-2 started showing a strong signal (previously it didn't find any signal, presumably looking in the wrong RF frequency). But tuning to the station still leaves me with a 771 error...

    If the version number of the firmware you currently have is higher than the firmware version number of the national release, the national release will not load. If the version number of the firmware you currently have is lower than the national release firmware version number, the nation release will load.

    Got mine today. Some things appear quicker, but not by much, others are just the same (dog slow). Overall, nothing to write home about.

    Anyone care to elaborate what is meant by "ATSC channel handling improvements"? Is this referring to LiLs or OTA via the AM-21 (on everything but HR20s)? Just curious if this might have something to do with addressing "AM-21 dark transition flicker/pixelation/artifacts".
