Can we force now? Or just best to let it take over nite..
RICH - when I got my svc last Jan, they gave me a HR22-200 and an R22-200. They both work great and neither have received the new NR yet.
The discussion threads for new releases could be easily reduced by about 50% in number of posts where people are simply saying "got it" or "didn't get it" or "when will I get it" or "how come I haven't got it yet" or numerous variations thereof. IMO, these posts add nothing of value to the discussion, a large percentage of them are just the same tired constantly repeated gripes about D* update distribution policies and methods.
Am I the only one who finds it tiresome and annoying to have to wade through 6 "got it" , "didn't get it" posts for every one that actually discusses an issue related to the new software? C'mon people, how many software rollouts have we gone through? Is there really that much confusion about how this works? There are 13 pages so far on this thread, I bet it could be cut down to 5 or 6 pages of posts that actually discuss the software itself.
Maybe we need a separate thread for each release dedicated to tracking who's got it and who's not got it for those who seem compelled to report this information.
Just my 2cents worth.
OMG!! I was wrong, 33 pages and counting! Could be 10-15 pages of useful stuff.
just wanted to say hr21-100 updated this morning so anyone else with this model should have the new version already or very soon
HR22-100 got the update this morning in south central PA
my hr22-100 got the update here in north carolina this morning
It appears that Doug's estimate was correct that many folks would be getting the update last night (who had not yet gotten it).
It will be interesting to see the reports from those folks on how the new release works, especially on those HR22 units that seemed to be the laggards with the previous version. Hopefully, 0395 speeds things up for the HR22 folks.
Sorry, read the sig wrong. Have you ever tried the 200 with component?
Aha! They do exist. You're the first member that I've see with one. Glad it works well.
Nope, you are not alone. Be nice if they, at least, added that the NR was working well or they were having problems with it, but it's gonna keep happening.
There is a thread for it here, but people still post to this thread, probably because it is stickied and convenient.
Yes, but not with my current pair of TVs. For three months, I had a Samsung 50" DLP connected to the HR21-200 via component (because I got a Blu-ray player, a Sony BDP-S350, and the Sammy has only one DVI input). I didn't see much degradation in the Sammy's picture using component, maybe because many of DirecTV's non-local channels weren't really all that sharp 15 months ago. (Most have gotten much sharper, IMO.)
My HR21 also has its original HDD and no external drive. I usually have between 10% and 30% available space. After I saw reports that speed might improve if available space were greater than 30%, I managed to get it all the way up to 90% last summer, but I didn't really feel that I was being rewarded with quicker responses to remote keypresses. (Maybe I'm just expecting too much; I'm still using my HR10-250 for 3-way and 4-way conflict resolution. )
Got the update on my HR22's in Dallas area this morning. Didn't have time to mess around with it. Really wanting my non-DVR HD Receiver to have the update now since that is how I will really use MRV, not really between the two HD-DVR's I have.
Got it on both my HR22-200 and R22-200(HD enabled) last nite. I watch a recording on the R22 from the HR22 and the other way around. They both worked great. You people in the CE test did a GREAT job. The only "wish" that I would express is that there could be a way to tell which program is on which DVR.
Such a long way from a 13" black and white TV in the 50's to now.
Just got it last night 3:28am in Miami for both my HR21-100 and HR22-100. Funny thing is I just got the HR22-100 from Best Buy 2 days ago to replace my HR10-250 that finally died. Both boxes got the update at exactly the same time too. Weird?!?!:scratch: But I'm Happy though!
The DVR name/location is the first thing listed in the program description.
