    What screen saver pictures are you talking about ? Something other than the DTV logo moving around the screen ?

    My minis now take only two or three seconds to start up, instead of minutes. So speed improved for me. Yay!

    Yes, there are a number of nature scenes that now appear when you pause live TV, or pause a recorded program. They appear after 5 minutes, and cycle through various pictures approximately every 15 seconds. They do not appear when tuned to a music channel.

    I've noticed a very significant speed increase on startup, too, since 114b. This pleases me.

    My HR54 received the 114b firmware update this morning. I really hope it fixes the two real bugs that were introduced with the June 2018 firmware update. Specifically, the bug where the list of recorded programs drops items from the list forcing me, on average, to do a reboot of the DVR about once a week in order to have access to the full list of recorded shows. The other bug is when I stop viewing of a recorded program or deleting one recorded program from a folder, the list menu frequently jumps back to a different place in the list of recorded programs. By the way I was having the same issues with a HR44 before upgrading to a HR54 several months ago.

    The 44 and 54 are both using the same software version so it makes sense that both units have the same problem.
    From what I read it is very annoying. I do not have this problem because my newest receiver is an HR24.

    My startup time on the C61K is fine but I hate the info screen it puts up of the current show and it never goes away until you hit the exit button on the remote. Shouldn't that disappear after a few seconds?

    Hopefully that list issue is fixed because it got to the point at my mom’s when I was over there I Just go to the list of recent recordings to find my show.

    Both of those issues seem to be fixed with 0x114b. I got that update last week and haven't seen either of these problems. Remote control response seems speedier, too.

    Yeah, I'm seeing that, too. Another annoyance they need to quash.

    I still have to be careful when deleting a recording after watching it. If a recording starts while I'm watching another, then when i stop the one I'm watching, the list is highlighting a different recording. I've been caught by this a couple times and deleted the wrong program. Still notice it with 114b.

    I also like the update, however my screensaver used to show the outside weather temp.. Now it doesn't . Does this have something to do with my Zip code not showing on setup?

    I don't think so. My zip shows as 00000 and I got the weather. However, I had set up the weather app at one point and I told it where I am.

    That said, there is a bug that is now causing the time and weather info to be displayed in the upper left corner and the images are AFU

    Edit: Reboot fixed the messed up picture, but like others the time and logo are there, but no weather.

    FWIW my slow and freexing issues turns out were due to having an AM21 hooked up to my HR44, it wasn't FW related. Unlugged the AM21 and the box is snappy fast again. Well as fast as an HR44 gets.

    latest issue with the update is that some of the on-screen messages are cut off as if they are zoomed in. If I switch inputs to my PS4 or back my HR54 displays a message that the button I am using can only be used in (whatever) mode. That messafe has now been completely cut off. Doesnt seem to have any impact on anything beyond being annoying and concerning me that ATT is incapable of doing the simplest things right.

    I don't know if this is a new issue or if I just didn't notice it before. Like the playlist, where everybcollege football or basketball game is kept in a folder with the name of the teams from the most recent game recorded, it appears that search results are doing the same thing.

    Last night, I wanted to record the Gonzaga vs Portland game. I did a search on Gonzaga. It came back showing Gonzaga @ Portland. When I selected that game, I got a "please wait" message for far longer than expected. When that was done, I got a list of every college basketball game on every channel that's scheduled for the next two weeks (with Gonzaga @ Portland, in the heading at the top of the screen).

    They know there’s some spacing placement issues of the GUI and will fix it. If I think they felt that wasn’t as big an issues as things like playlists missing recordings, which I would agree with.
