    Woke up today and saw 368 updated around 2:24 am; consequently, today has been the happiest day of ownership of the HR22-100 for us in quite some time. The speed update in itself makes me and my wife both very happy, and the idea of canceling early and paying early termination fees and jumping back to Dish has now been thrown back out the window.

    Other than the speed, the other things we've noticed is no more 'skip to end' issues, and the slightly different DVR recording screens (now adding a few other entries like upcoming shows and season options or whatever they worded them).

    I *still* haven't noticed what this is supposed to be. I dug earlier in the thread (back to page 1) and tried to figure this out, but I still didn't notice any difference on the menus on the left. Doesn't really matter, I'm just mentioning it so no one else wonders if they're missing it. :)

    Great job D*, I'm a happy customer once again. The months and months of HR22 slowness were really getting under our skin but things are all kosher again. ;)

    there's really only *1* thing else that I miss from having the Dish DVR's and that is the labeling of "New" on new episodes of stuff, and the ability to tell the DVR to only record "New" episodes. Sometimes things that shouldn't record (because they're not "First Run" episodes, in D* DVR terminology - and the timer is set to only record First Run episodes)...still record, but eh...I'll consider everything else a work in progress. The speed was the killer for us, and now that that has been fixed, the rest is just minor quibbles we can live with. :)

    My HR21, now moved to master bedroom duties, got the update last week. My two HR22's got the update yesterday so I'm all up to date now.

    The guide movement seems to be MUCH faster now as noted by others but I haven't had time to do much else yet...I'll know more later in the week when I find the time to check out my recorded shows.

    In System Setup, the menu items in the left (vertical) menu area now have a slightly different look than they used to.

    Not only do they have a slightly different look, there have been some menu additions. For example if you go into setups and select "Audio". In the past there were 3 tabs across the top of the page (Language, Sound Effects, Dolby Digital). They moved those items to the menu on the left, so it now conforms with other menus. They also tried to make some of the menu selections more intuitive, such as "Episode Options", View Upcoming" and hilmar2k mentioned "Series Manager".

    On another note, I noticed another big improvement. When you select the "To Do List", the list pops up immediately. No more "Please Wait" while it searches for items to display. And I believe the History menu is better. It now displays the reason an episode was canceled, at the top of the screen when you highlight a program. In the past, I recall having to select the program and then scroll to the bottom of the info.

    Yes, it is better, but that "History reasons at the top" feature was introduced in 0x034C along with live-event padding and (a poor man's) DLB.

    I sure as Hell would prefer a "poor man's dlb" than not having any at all. Guess you just can't please everyone in this world. I can remember when we didn't have any type of DLB at all - I now use it during most sporting events along with adding the time extension - thanks again, Directv. Have been with them since 1996 and can say they have improved the service every year.

    I guess some people are glass half-empty, while others are glass half-full.

    The last entry in my caller id log was 7/29/09. Yesterday, caller id suddenly started working again. It can't be due to 0x368. I got the upgrade on 10/23/09. What could account for the sudden reappearance of caller id?

    Maybe your phone company fixed something.

    I notice with the new release that the brrpp's I used to get, mainly on recordings, are gone from live shows but have been replaced by a few seconds of silence on some recorded shows. A slight improvement, but still annoying.

    Likely something in the original data stream that was recorded.

    Can someone running 368 check something for me? I am wondering if, when checking TO DO, the show description displayed above the list shows the duration of the highlighted show? TIA!

    It does not show the show's duration with one exception: A Manual Recording I have set to Record Monday Night Football does show the duration of the game.

    I did a little search for this and didn't see anything, so I hope this is the right place to post about this.

    Anyway, I got home today and turned on the Bears game and noticed my system was running really slowly (HR 20-100). Crawling. I entered the menu, and on the bottom of the list of menu options (under Parental Controls, setup, help) was "Daily Fortune". I thought it was weird, but I figured I'd give it a go. So I selected it, and it gave me one choice - 11/06. I selected that and...nothing. Box was still running really slowly too.

    I checked TVApps, but there is no daily fortune app that I installed (I actually haven't installed any apps).

    I rebooted and Daily Fortune is no longer a choice and my box is running much more quickly now, but weird, yeah?
