    Also, it's now been well over 24 hours since I last did a clearmybox search and channel logos in the guide still have not come back. Still no on demand either.

    No more than 24 hours. If longer, call so they can refresh.

    Re run internet setup. Also. The box needs to reboot one to two times after running a clearmybox. It will only do this when not in use and no recordings are scheduled for several hours.

    Shouldn’t take that long. If done right it should all restore in 3 hours

    Photos yes can take a few days to fully load but if you don’t have the genie on and have no scheduled recordings for about 3-4 hours. On demand will restore within that time. EPG should be full in 12-24 hours.

    So, I have done another clearmybox search yesterday and have restarted the HR44-700 a couple of times but still no channel logos in the guide and still no on demand. Again, this is with firmware 0xffc. Still haven’t had 1001 pushed to me yet, and it appears that either Directv is only putting firmware “out there” during the middle of the night (or not at all right now) as the "redh" website has been showing everything as unavailable. Although I have not gotten up in the middle of the night to check if anything was in the stream.

    FWIW- I reverted back to x0d8f last Friday morning. DirecTV has not done their usual new GUI pushes so far this week like they have for the last month or so. I'm still on x0d8f as of right now late Wednesday night.

    Kind of bizarre.....maybe they are awaiting results of the latest beta x1003 before pushing again. I'm not complaining- all is working great with the old/likeable GUI.....

    Unfortunately, all you are doing is postponing the inevitable. Why not just bite the bullet now and start getting used to it?

    That would probably be a fair statement if the new forced "record all channels" logic wasn't screwed up for network channels and try to record from the national feeds rather than from local channels. This is causing people who don't have access to the National feeds to miss recordings.

    The recording across all channels (even those not subscribed to) debacle is reason enough to stay away. I wouldn’t touch the new GUI in its current state.

    Because I have a wife that when she says she doesn't like something, I take the warning. Yes it is inevitable, that's why plan B after the permanent changeover is to have another HDMI input utilized from a HR24 in the other room, since that still remains under the old GUI that she uses and wants.

    So, Had you simply gone with it you and your wife would be used to the new GUI by now and the old one would be a distant memory.

    Your wife sounds like my wife!! She absolutely HATES the new URL. I'm not exactly a fan either. On my other 55" LG TV that doesn't have 4k I have an HR24 on it. When I look at the guide there I'm amazed how bright and bold it looks. And, amazingly, everything works as it should. Only thing I can't get is 4k. I am SO sorry I gave up my HR44 to have 4k. Nothing but trouble since. (and yes, I know the HR44 is going to eventually get this debacle too eventually).
