    Guess I mustn't be a "power user," because I'm enjoying the new GUI very much. Much better than the TiVO Bolt Vox with Hydra that I returned after 25 days.

    No problem to those who like it, I just want Directv to change two things that I can't find a purpose or logic to, get rid of the dark shade surrounding the progress bar and make the playlist/guide fonts larger and more readable.

    And one more thing, make the color difference in the progress bar between time left and time played more noticeable, currently time played is dark grey, time left is light grey, barely perceptible.

    I am going to re-ask this in case anyone figured something out. Is mark and delete gone? Is there any way to delete recordings other than 1 by 1?

    You can delete the entire folder, just highlight the folder and press the red button, then follow the prompt.

    Hello, sorry if this is a repeat question, but I think I've read this entire thread...is there any way to find out when I may be getting the new GUI software update? I assume I would get the typical jargon from a CSR, not sure, etc. etc. Or is there a way to force the installation? I read a previous response that someone said to reboot and wait for the blue screen with the restart message and push 02468. I did that but nothing happened. I have a Genie HR44/500, if that matters. Thanks

    I think that they are rolling this out slowly in order to keep the CSR lines fairly open to questions related to the new GUI. Forcing is possible but you have to have someone who can clue into when its in the stream, otherwise you will get the older national release.

    You can delete an entire folder, but mark to delete is flat out gone, its not hiding anywhere.

    I did this trick this morning...didn’t get a new update on hs17:

    You need to do a reset, then watch the lights on the front of the HS17. During the initial boot up sequence (about 10 seconds) the status light remains off. Once the status light turns solid white (for about 5 seconds) press the Add Client button on the top of the HS17 to force a software download. The status light will flash yellow (for about 5 seconds) then flash white while the download occurs. Do not unplug or reset the HS17 while it is the flashing white state.

    interesting ... I'm reading it first time - was it DTV CSR source ?

    That's the process Stuart Sweet said he was told by Directv way back when the HS17 was first introduced, but when people tried it, it didn't work. Directv may have disabled the ability of end users to force updates at first, but since enabled it.

    Who me? I've never seen it, I have a commercial account - no DVRs, no clients. The GUI is meaningless for me, I still have the old blue SD interface on the H20s and when I replace those with clients someday (once Directv supports them on commercial accounts) and get the new GUI it won't make the slightest bit of difference to how we use them.

    I like it. Could use a few tweaks. I hear they're already removing the fade from the bottom of the guide in the latest CEs and that's my biggest beef. Brightening up the text from a very light gray to white would make it a bit easier to read, too.

    Any links on this topic? Have you heard or read anything about the fade surrounding the dvr progress bar?

    I know the website but the latest post on the forum is from days ago, I don't see any mention of what you are referring to.
