    Me too. But it was definitely down at about 11 this morning when I first read the above posts.

    New User Interface Bug, 0x1112 on an HR54, two of my manual recordings did not record Sunday night. Also the missing recorded programs bug is back, once or twice a week I have to hit the reset button to make them reappear. And one night my NBA team record messed up and recorded the pregame show but not the actual game.

    It should be fully clear, Youtube TV for example, in fact Directv Now's progress bar has very little if any black fade/shade, now we have UI bugs that were issues months ago reappearing in the latest 0x1112 update, so what is the problem, is it cheap American or cheap foreign programmers, the evidence suggests they should be replaced with professionals.

    Yes back over here on 0x1112 (HR54), in addition two of my Sunday night, every week recordings did not record, the level of quality is garbage.

    I would make my habit to reboot the DVR once per day to see if it help; time for the reboot you could always select by your schedule any time of day.

    For the recordings that failed to happen, did you check the recording history to see the reason? For the rare occurrence that one of my recordings has failed, the cause is often a “guide update”, meaning I believe that the program’s title had changed.

    Yes, checked, nothing reported at all. I don't know if weekly manual recordings operate differently but those usually are guaranteed to record. The odd thing is a separate manual weekly recording did work as expected Sunday night, so some worked and others did not.

    Genie downgraded OS from 1112 to 1104!

    My Genie (HR44-500) had been on 1112 for a couple of weeks now and, like the others, still had the recording/list bug. Just this afternoon I tried to force an update in hopes of getting 1140 that may have the fix. But, it instead installed 1104! I had never heard of going backwards and installing an older version of the OS!

    Has anyone else seen the OS version go backwards? And, does anyone know how I can get 1140 as soon as possible? If I call DirecTV do they have a way to move my unit to an earlier update date?

    Thanks!
    Larry.

    1112 is a beta release, you downloaded 1104, the current national release.

    Interesting! I wonder how I got a beta release? I never signed up for any type of early release program.

    Thanks!

    Directv sent the update to my HR54, 0x1112 is not beta or at least Directv is not treating it as such, they are sending it out and there is nothing one can do to stop it.

    To get the newest release, you have to force it between 3:00am and 7:00am Eastern Time, Monday thru Friday. I think it's on version 1147 or something now. Go to http://www.redh.com/dtv to see what's in the "force" pipe at any given time.

    0x1112 is definitely not a beta release. It is the version I have, nd I have never forced any kind of download.

    I am still trying to understand this peculiar behavior. I just finished watching the first recording in a folder of eight recordings. When I exited the finished program, I ended up inside of a folder immediately above the folder I had been in. I know others have reported this issue, and it seems to be pretty consistent in what it does.

    Yes that has been an ongoing issue for me all year long across different updates. I have adjusted to the look of the GUI, if they could just eliminate these functionality bugs and remove the progress bar fade/shade, well this GUI would then be tolerable.
