It looks like all are stalled right now. All versions for all receivers are grayed out.

having performance issues again which I never had before the new GUI. Delays between remote the receiver actually DOING anything. I've had frozen screens now where it will sit on an info screen for 10-15 seconds before it actually disappears. Channel changes are slow too. I'm convinced this is a buffer issue and the new GUI just can't handle it well. I'm already on my fourth "Clearmybox". Happens on both the HR54 and the minis. I also frequently lose "internet" on the 54 which causes issues on all the minis. That could be a wifi issue where it's located. I may try and swap out the 54 with my 24 location and see if that improves things.
I believe that just means the data source is down for redh.
Like P Smith said, we don't really know a lot about how they are doing it, only that it is being slowly rolled out. Major changes like this will increase support calls, so I think Directv has chosen the pace of roll outs to avoid having their call center get slammed. There isn't any way to know when it will reach you or even what percentage of customers they have upgraded at this point so we can't even say whether the rollout is complete next week or lasts until May.
Ive had the new UI for a week now, no issues at all so far.
A few changes id like to see like the playlist return to the way it use to be, lose the big info block when on the title in the list. But everything else is fine.
While it’s not perfect, I am getting used to it. Font could be larger, IMO, but my biggest issue is the dark shading (top and bottom). They had this in their previous guide and did remove it. What purpose it serves is beyond me. Also, IMO, my 54 does seem slower to react to commands. Hopefully, we see some updates soon to address everyone’s concerns.
I've never seen a pattern in the updates.
if I would research again the process, probably there are filters what accompanied FW spools , I recall seen serial numbers on some long time ago...
perhaps DTV using small group of STB, taking serial numbers randomly from its customers DB ?
Other than to satisfy curiosity, why would one ever spend time researching a process over which they would never have any control? Better to sit back, enjoy your setup, and accept the update when it occurs.
well, there are many members here who do care, asking, wondering ... they are appreciate that FW monitor is running on redH site - tell me about driving force now!
EDIT. See a post below.
I was running x0d8f all weekend on my Genie until early Monday morning when DirecTV pushed x1001 back onto it. I had to revert last night back to x0d8f so I could easily manage to do list, and they pushed x1001 back onto it this morning. As of this minute, x0d8f is back in the stream except for HS17 models.
Also, x0b9c got pushed this morning to my HR24’s. I’ll have to check later if my Pandora is still working!
Still don't like the My Teams page...it does not include the next/current game in the list of upcoming games.......it starts with a game hat is 2-3 days out.
Engineers...gotta pick things apart.
This describes the performance of my HR54 and mini exactly, since the new GUI. It was fantastic before the update. smh.
I'm still on the old GUI on an HR44 and a week into getting 0xd8f, which brought on the same symptoms you described. A clearmybox 2-3 days ago has helped, so far.
The case of the disappearing cursor: open the Guide and scroll horizontally on a channel. The cursor typically will highlight a guide entry in blue. But as you scroll, the blue box disappears, and the description box at the top of the screen doesn’t change. And if you keep scrolling right, at some point the scrolling stops regardless of how many times you press the key. To make the blue box re-appear, you have to scroll left one click, and then description will update.
This has to be a bug. I can’t imagine anyone designing it this way on purpose.
That’s a bug.
I have 0xffc, downloaded on 1/2/18 on my HR44-700. I noticed this past week that on demand was not working. Tried to do a search for clearmybox, but when I brought up the search function, the navigation box with the letters and number to choose from to input your search was blank. I then went into setting and restarted the receiver. Once it came backup, there was no change - no on demand and search box was still blank. I was able to navigate through the search box to do a clearmybox search. Once the receiver came back up from that, the search function was back again, but still no on demand. Last night I checked and still no on demand so I did a search for clearmybox again this morning. As of right now, still no on demand. Any one else having this issue?
I heard there new firmware come out 1003 for HS17
