    My first finding so far is: As stated the highest signal strength is 77%, Some sub channels are still missing, and it is still very slow!! :)

    You can't NOT take a push. But national releases can't overwrite our special releases anyway, so it doesn't matter.

    Came home and it was locked up. I had the race on when I left and when I came home, it was locked with the blue light spinning.

    Doing a RBR now, will update in a few.

    UPDATE: A RBR fixed it. However, it came back up to channel 206. It was previously on 607 and 11-1 before that. It was on 206 before 11-1. I wonder how it picked 206 unless it just knows I like sports. :)

    I'm locked at 90%... Should I RBR or is 90% past the cutoff point?


    UPDATE: Got a phone call right after this post and while on the call the unit finished the download. It was locked for a good 30 mins at 90% though.

    Slight brain fade. We spent the day looking at snow here in the Banning/Beaumont area of California. Nothing like back east, but 3 inches is pretty good.

    The push completed on its own and HR21 was on live TV when I turned it on.

    I decided to repeat the Antenna Setup to see if anything changed ... did not notice anything new, but I noticed that it remembered the channels I had edited (and cleared).

    I also noticed that the issues I reported the last time were still there (couldn't use PG UP/DN in the Antenna screens, on-screen instructions could be improved, etc.)

    I just got home. I noticed the am21 light was on. When I tried to turn the hr21 on it was locked up. After reboot I have the new version and its show being upgrade at 9:00. So I think locked up on reboot of the upgrade.

    I got it at 5:11 today. The picture was fine, but no audio. I did an up channel and audio came back, then down channel to original station and audio was fine there also.

    I received it at 4:12 PST. Everything seemed to be working. I tried playing a Media Share video which gave me a black screen freeze with the previous software and it ran fine, but when I hit the exit key, it came back to the main Media Share screen with nothing showing in the right hand side where the files should have been listed and would not respond to the remote. RBR.

    I notice it has the "save 10" option on recordings which the HR20 got earlier.

    +1, only the video I have that plays on the HR20, still won't play on the HR21, but I got the same freeze trying to exit and had to rbr.

    I'm still getting audio drop outs upon completion of the 30-second slip (usually stacked but on occasion a single slip), not always, but fairly regularly.

    Just hadn't noticed it on my HR20's - or the HR21 until the AM21 arrived - but then again, I've been more focused on the HR21 lately. :)

    But what I mean is the few seconds of silence upon completion, not stuttering.

    Still seeing the issue where after a 30 Sec Skip the frame of video you are left on is ahead of where the audio is so the audio starts playing for 2 to 3 seconds before the video starts going.
