    There still is hope: https://forums.att.com/t5/DIRECTV-D...kidding-me/m-p/5751911/highlight/true#M261402

    From a Directv employee: However, I saw this update as well and have already shared this feedback. I had a call with with the leads before I went out this week and advised them of my feedback which is in line with yours. We are continuing to work on it and I'm hopeful after this call we had that we will get to a place where we have a more transparent progress bar that remains small.

    Still am on 1104 from August...still waiting for the update. Seems they roll it out in phases for some reason.

    Directv has always rolled out software in phases

    Kind of archaic if you ask me...I have been with them over 10 years but have never wanted an update like this one.

    Eh. When you have 20 million customers better to do it in stages to not slam for customer service center. The larger cable companies do it also

    Go to www.redh.com and check to see what software is streaming for your unit. If it is the newer software, you can force a download to update. Sometimes redh isn't working, so just check again later or the next day.

    To force a download (HR24/34/44/54) do a reset and as soon as the power light comes back on press 0 2 4 6 8 in order rapidly. Your screen should say something like found new software and start downloading it. You'll see the version number and if it isn't what you want, then do a reset (push the red button) before it gets to 70% and you'll just come back up on whatever software you had.

    So got the 0x114b update yesterday on my HR44/700, 12hrs and NO missing shows. Have had the Missing playlist shows problem 8-16 times a week for last 5 months. Other changes noticed 1) smaller black progress bar background. 2) I think the progress bar speed indicator has been moved from always on the right to under the current point in the show progress 3)guide seems more readable 4)guide jitter has gone away 5)I dont use favorites so cant comment on that 6)still not sure about existing problem with KEYWORD search based series just stopping working and having to be recreated 7)other showings in info seems quicker 8)havent been having remote slowness so cant comment on that 9)may have switched from HD to SD mode(exit button) 10)Think that the slo-mo function seems to work more smoothly. Summary- 9 months to get a fix for an issue that removed 50% of the fuctionality of the box every 18hrs.

    Will updat in 3 and 7 days.

    Received the update on my HR44 Tuesday night. So far so good. No issues with missing recordings. And deleting recordings no longer jumps around in my play list.

    You have to force between specific times and days

    It looks like right now the HR44-200/HR54-500 and the HS17 have the new firmware full time. everyone should have it probably by the end of next week or even this week

    That's about when I got it. I have not seen any odd recordings. Don't record much but what I do record is there.

    Yes, you can't just "force a download", you will get whatever release is in the stream (which will probably be the one you already have).

    You are still forcing the download regardless of the version that is in stream

    I woke up to larger fonts in the info banner and some fonts felt smoother overall on Wednesday morning. System seems to be running ok so far. The transport bar is now the box like I’ve seen in other peoples screen shots. HR44 and C61 here.

    Like others are reporting here, I too got the 0x114b update. Came through this morning. So far, all looks good and no missing recordings. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Yes, you can. Open the playlist on the mini, then press 0. There you should see an option that says Filter by Playlist. Voilà.

    I am confused, Rich. I checked out the PB on my HR24 (running SW 0xba2), and took a picture of what the PB looks like when running the 30-sec forward click. The behavior is the same when fast forwarding. IMO, the PB from the "old GUI" looks quite similar to the new one and, as you can see, the scores for a sports broadcast are also obscured. I don't mean to single you out, but I can't understand whay everyone is wishing that the PB could be the same as it used to be. I don't see much difference.

    Are you set to 30SKIP or the default 30SLIP ? 30SKIP on my HR24 shows nothing when the 30 second button is pressed.
