    Make sure that you enter a name on each DVR in the multiroom setup else all you'll get is the last 6 digits of the servers receiver ID.

    Sammy's and Sonys were the two TVs that seemed to have the most trouble with HDMI connections. I've not seen any difference in PQ on my Panny plasmas using component wires compared to HDMI.

    Did the 21-200 have the same problems when it was attached to the Sammy?

    About a year and a half ago we tested a lot of eSATAs and came to the conclusion that they ran really well between 80% Available and 30% Available. Didn't try any internals and I'm not sure that those numbers apply to internals. Some people that I trust have told me that the internals don't have those same problems. I haven't noticed any appreciable slowdown on almost full internals.

    Nope....its in the test transponder stream...not public.

    These get pushed out overnight....so I'd recommend those folks who have not yet received the update - check in the morning again.

    I think so, but I haven't had the Sammy around for a year, so I can't be sure. But why should the TV brand affect the speed or responsiveness of GUI navigation? I think it doesn't. Only channel changing speed should be affected by the TV, and I watch very little live TV.

    The firmware update killed one of my HD DVR's wit the dreaded Diagnostic code 14-687.

    When I receive my new HD DVR how long will it take for it to get the updated firmware for MRV?

    Most receivers update their firmware shortly after they are activated.

    Not sure exactly when this happened, but I'll bet it has to do with 0x395. My OTA channel assignment for KABCDT 7-1 are completely hosed. There are 3 of them listed, and the one marked KABCDT is some foreign language SD channel. The other two are black screen 771.

    I've got an HR22/100 (replaces an HR20 that got hurt from a lightning strike) just installed. It did not go through a update in the first hour. I did a receiver restart, entered 02468 at the first welcome screen, and it said it was searching for new software. It did this for about 5 minutes and then booted up with the original software still loaded (I never saw any download progress). Any suggestions? I've tried this with and without the external drive.

    I think you were too late entering 02468 - notice it says below:

    ...come back on OR the first blue screen is displayed, whichever occurs first, ..


    How do I download?
    Restart your receiver. Using the remote control, select
    Menu -> Parental, Fav's & Setting -> System Setup > Reset -> Restart Receiver ({DASH} to confirm)
    When the reset process starts, the blue LEDs on the front of the receiver will turn off
    Once the LEDs on the front of the receiver come back on OR the first blue screen is displayed, whichever occurs first, enter this special code from your remote control: 0 2 4 6 8.
    After a few more seconds, you should see a screen indicating that the 10-20 minute download cycle has started.

    So much for this update taking care of the dropped audio. Still getting drops on Fox News, which means I will probably get them on ESPN again too.

    The brand doesn't change the speed or responsiveness of the UI, the incompatibility of some Sony and Sammy TVs with D*'s (the Sonys and Sammys have no other problems with HDMI on other devices) HDMI output causes those issues. I had massive problems with my Sony HD TVs when using HDMI and had to switch to component to get some semblance of stability.

    I have two Samsung HDTV's - a DLP I purchased in late 2006 and an LCD I purchased in late 2008. Neither of them have ever had any HDMI problems with any Directv receiver (including HR20-700, HR21-700, HR22-100 models), nor have they had problems with HDMI connections from my PS3 or an older upscaling LG DVD player.

    You'll note that I said "some" models in my post. Never said it happens to all models of Sonys and Sammys. I also said that I had no problems using other devices with HDMI connections on my Sonys. Never owned a Sammy, just read about the issues with HDMI on them too.
