    Because you downloaded during the CE window.

    For discussion on CE versions please visit the CE area.

    0x040A and 0x040D are still the national releases.

    I anticipate this release will be a disaster for the already sluggish HR22-100. My HR24-500 got it a few days ago, and can tell that guide scrolling has slowed down a bit as the cover art graphic has to load at the top for each selection. Not a big deal for the HR24-500 since it is a fairly snappy unit. But, I'm preparing myself for when my two HR22-100's get the update, I suspect they will be pretty much unusable.

    As other's have said, it's just too bad they continue to push down more and more features that units like the HR22-100 just obviously can't handle.

    I've got my retirement clock (yes, I got a clock, not a watch) on top of my entertainment center so I don't really care where DirecTV displays the time. :D

    I've got a clock on my remote control, a Tony Stewart Championship clock to the left of my TV and a 1940's Austrian Coo-Coo Clock to the right, and the time on my iPhone. I could care less where the time is on my DVR as well. :lol:

    My HR20 took a dump two days ago and they replaced it with the HR24-500. This after my other HR20 took a dump in july and they replaced with HR24-100. They both worked great and I had an external hard-drive on one. they both work great and they are very fast. Noe I have to buy a AM21 and external hard-drive for mine. Where is best place to buy AM21 and 2 tb with enclosure?

    I have used 80% of my 1TB external hard drive, and I want to know if a new HR24 will recognize it. I don't want to lose much of which I have What is the advantage to the HR 24?

    Yes, the HR24 will recognize it, list the programs, allow you to delete them. The catch is, it will NOT let you play any of them. Only the DVR that recorded them, can play them.

    Only real advantage to the HR24 over the HR20 is speed and 3D capability. Disadvantage is you need an external AM21 to get OTA which your HR20 has internally.

    What's with the 040C for some HR20's and 040D for others? I got the "C" version.

    DTV has the AM21 for $50. Cheaper than solid signal.

    I would call DirecTV and complain that they replaced your HR20s with a device that does not have an OTA connector. They might send you an AM21 or two for free.

    I'm curious why this won't be happen. Why the insistence on putting it in a place where it doesn't make much sense.

    What's funny is when you goto the "Filter the Guide" page, the clock is where it used to be on the Guide page.

    The clock really has no place where they put it now. Then again many things Directv does make no sense, so I'm not surprised.

    The same time La Crosse (54601) gets it.

    In other words, whenever DirecTV is damn good and ready.

    I think if you don't get served by LiL HD service, they'll give you the AM21 for free. At least that used to be the rule.

    As it has been stated already the clock was moved to accommodate the new cover art feature. You'll get used to it.
