I tried searching through this thread but how is the speed of the new GUI on the HR-44? Thanks.
It varies. With the current version (FF1), I find it as fast as the old guide on a HR44. There have been a couple CE versions that were laggy for me though.
Wow! This sounds exciting...
They don't say on that ad what boxes its for. I wonder if people will think all the boxes get it?
A couple days in and nothing has changed as far as I'm concerned. I actually like the new look and the speed is the same as the old interface.
I did try to re-enable 30SKIP and found it to be much faster than before but there is zero visual feedback. No progress bar at all and if you the forward button multiple time, the screen will appear to freeze for a few seconds and then go to the spot in the recording to pick up. I find this disturbing visually so I went back to 30SLIP.
That said, the 30SKIP issue seems to be more of an HS17 issue than a new interface issue since I noticed when I got the unit in August. If anything it's actually faster but I can't get past that lack of feedback.
I got this early this morning and... When I turn the TV off and go to turn it back on, it literally takes 30-40 seconds for the picture to come on. I'm not sure what this is about..
Clients don’t show progress bar on skip. That’s been true for years.
Many prefer this as it’s better for sports. I think if you left it for a full month you’d get used to it.
What JerryMeeker posted isn't the entire ad. More information is posted below what's in his post. Some of that information states "Genie HDDVR (model HR44 or later) required".
FWIW - I have a Genie 2 and it hasn't been pushed.
That said, what the heck is the "fade" that is oft discussed here?
Genie 2 as in hs17? I haven’t gotten it yet.
At the bottom of the playlist, guide, and anything that comes from the bottom of the screen (progress bar, one channel guide) it just fades off. In the case of the progress bar and that kind of thing, there is a black background that comes up that, although transparent and fading out, covers a good 40% of the screen. Both fades are unnecessary and have personally become more annoying over time.
I would watch www.redh.com/dtv list of current FW to get the answer ...
I'm in the Dallas area and was wondering if anyone else had gotten the new GUI ? So far haven't received it here.
On the old gui you could hit the yellow button to jump ahead a couple of days on the guide. How or can I do this now? Cant seem to find out how to do it. I also hate the fade out on the bottom takes up way to much screen.
I don't mind the lack of the progress bar as much as the sudden jump back to the recording. I'd like to see the jump for each 30 seconds. There's no way to know, if I've gone too far, how far back to go. With 30SLIP at least you get that feedback so I've gone back to it for now.
It's really my only complaint and it's a minor one at that.
Press 0 for filters to jump by date / time
DFW here (Allen) and nope
I'm used to it, but I don't like it. The one thing that I miss about it is that when the progress bar would come up for skip, I could see how much time is left. Now, it's an extra button click.
Since the update to the new guide my hr44 does not see playlists from other receivers (hr24s or hr21) but in settings the whole home shows they are connected with sharing on. The playlist settings are also set to show all locations. Anyone else have this issue and resolve it?
Try rebooting your 24 and 21
