    I forced a download to my HR54, and it just re-downloaded 0D80. I guess we can’t get to the new version until DTV says we can.

    Some people have forced a download of new versions when they are in the stream, but they are not intended for general use but are engineering versions. Not recommended, they can destroy your series links and recordings.

    Woke up to the new GUI today - 0xfed. Came through about 4 am. Interesting changes. Running a little sluggish right now, but I assume that's because it's putting everything in order in the background. (EDIT - I have an HR54-200.)

    The new GUI downloaded this morning. Still playing with it, but so far so good. Will take some getting used to, though. Uses lots of tiles.

    Yes, national release software is often staggered.

    HR 44. Just received the New GUI. Not impressed. First impression is not favorable. The new programs list view is horrendous. The large overlay with the featured program hides 3 or programs underneath. Smaller font and less real estate for the actual listing due to left side bar means that to my 50+ eyes, it's a real strain to see on a 65" display from 10' away. I guess the roll out has started as I did not force a CE download. I'll dig a little deeper to see if there's any settings to improve my experience. For the first time in years, DirecTV has given me a reason to consider other providers. :(

    Yep. Outside of a couple of people, not much good being said about it on some of the other sites.
