    Talladega,...
    I currently have the DirecTV Genie HR44. I still have not gotten the new GUI software upgrade from DIRECTV. I checked out the RedH site and the site has been inactive for several days now. Just wondering...

    It's a very slow roll out. Be patient.

    I still don't have it on my HR44, but from what I'm reading, I'm in no hurry to get this 'update'.

    I don't have it yet, either. Thankfully!

    Must be very slow. More likely to get an android OS update before this one.

    I’m in PA and no sign of it here. I’m not rushing it. Let them work out the kinks first.

    It showed up last night on mine (Dallas TX area) did a quick look at and yes it's different but don't see a problem getting used to it with a little time and messing with it. :)

    These DIRECTV/AT&T guys can't get out of their own way. When I got the "Exciting News" email from them yesterday, the "Learn More" button/link yielded this on both Chrome and Firefox:

    Server not found. Firefox can’t find the server at ct.eonline.att-mail.com.

    I received this exciting news months ago, and I still haven't received it. Not in a hurry ...

    After poking around with the new GUI I for one like it and find it easy to get around on :) and other than being a bit slower no problems :)

    Just got it today.
    A steaming pile in my opinion.
    Guide is bearable, but playlist is horrible!

    I know it will come one day. I dread the thought. My Hr44 has been getting progressively slower with all of the "improvements" that they have made to the software along the way. To get even slower with the "new and improved" software is not something that I look forward to.

    I’m in charge of DirecTV setup in my house. My wife hated me too, but I’ve avoided the new GUI for the last month with the use of a timer on my HR54, that doesn’t allow it to reinstall the new GUI when they do the pushes.

    It installed while I was out of town this week. Most of the changes were cosmetic and I’m sure we’ll get used to them. The one issue I am concerned about is the inability to record only on a specific channel.
