    Yes, but only less features if you dont like the font, color, size and transparency choices DirecTV has made, which I find very easy to read. Others may disagree.

    You can alternatively choose "closed captions" from the same YELLOW button menu (like always), and customize the above choices yourself, under "setup", "display", "closed captioning".

    I created a new forum thread pertaining to this issue (the mods will be happy:lol:). Unfortunately, I don't have enough posts to post the URL. Search 'optical audio signal on standby'. Looks like this issue has been around for quite some time, as I hit on another thread opened up about 2 years ago.

    Sounds like the "better than DLB" that was promised to us many moons ago.

    I hope I get it by this weekend :)

    I just tested mine as well and I don't have audio over optical when I'm in standby on my 21-100.

    Well said drew. as one of the DLB thread "whiners" I couldnt be more excited about this rollout. I anticipate it to be better than my dtivo dlb, for all the reasons stated, mostly becuase they gave us 2 90 min buffers. Oh yea i have to click down twice... even bolt james would live with that...

    Someone at Dtv loves us....

    Haven't gotten it yet, but I'm very excited as well. Thanks D*. I really really missed DLB, and this sounds like a great replacement. I understand the need to "activate" it so when it is not in use DirecTV can do their thing. One extra keystroke once a day or so isn't going to hurt. Wohoo!

    Does this mean if you have a recording scheduled and you have DoublePlay active, the scheduled recording will not take place? I would expect it would give you a warning 5 or 10 minutes before it needs to change channels similar to TIVO.

    Scheduled recordings take priority over DoublePlay .. This means that DIRECTV will not hijack the background tuner for any housekeeping/contend delivery while DP is active.

    Thanks for the clarification. This makes sense. I cannot wait to get the new software.

    You wouldn't believe how many times this has been said in so many different ways. Hear that whining sound? That's nobody listening to us.

    I don't understand what he's talking about either. You put the HR in standby and the sound over the optical wire goes away. Always been that way. Where do these posts come from? Left field? :lol:

    Haven't heard from Boltjames in quite a while. He had a lot of fun on the DLB thread.

    What he means is that even though the "sound" is off, the optical port is still enabled on the HR. This is causing an issue with A/V switches that auto-sense a signal and switch inputs based on the active signal.

    Huh. None of my optical switches do that. I've got four HRs and a BD player hooked up to one of them. I've had quite a few switches and never had a problem.

    Folks, just to reiterate something that has been pointed out elsewhere .. The new NR is not quite into full force at this point. So the delay will be a bit longer than I originally anticipated. I'll get more information out as it becomes available to me.
