    To show how screwed up this 1088SW version is, the client is now much faster than the Genie.

    1088. Also just experienced the missing recordings bug for the first time. Clear my box brought them back.

    I went from 1037 to 1088. Had 0 problems on 1037. Ugh.

    In my experience, a simple restart restores missing items to the list, and is probably faster.

    It will take as long as 24 hours for the guide to completely rebuild and the fix is only temporary.

    The fix MAY only be temporary. Some of us who have had this problem have not had it reoccur. In my case, I had it happen in early June, executed a CLEARMYBOX and everything returned. I haven't experienced the problem since. That doesn't mean that I won't see the problem again. It just means that I haven't.

    The one thing that seems to be consistent with DirecTV's problems is that they are inconsistent from customer to customer. Some people have absolutely no problems. Others have a multitude of problems. We can never assume that because we are experiencing a problem, that everyone else will have the same problem.

    I have an HR54 and C61k and have this bug as of last week. About half of my recorded programs are nowhere to be found in the Playlist (main list or even in the sorted categories).

    None of the original workarounds are working, I now have to hit the reset button every day or every other day to reclaim the missing recordings.

    There are several Spectrum guides, depending on the city and the cable box one has. I love the version we currently have with our six-tuner DVR. Compared to what we experienced with the new Directv GUI update, I'm glad we made the switch.

    Yeah the spectrum guide on the Cisco Explorer 9865hdc 6 tuner MRDVR that some family has in the Hudson Valley NY system is real nice. It’s full HD, easy to read and I believe 7 lines with no banner ads. There’s a Samsung box in the bedroom we stay and it has full access to the living room DVR and it’s also HD graphics and poster art on demand, channel logos and extremely fast tuning. I went into the diagnostics menu and many of the HD channels are now in MPEG4, adding to DVR space savings. Picture quality is far better than Comcast’s over compressed Mpeg4. They also have gigabit internet available if you want to pay for it. I have to say the cable technology came A LONG way from what it used to be.

    I also downloaded 1101, and it still has the missing recordings problem. Although, it did take 3 days for the problem to rear it's ugly head. Wish I could figure out how to reproduce the issue on demand, but it seems random to me. Also, 1101 completely breaks On Demand, all On Demand channels show as "unavailable". I would advise against loading 1101, it's less functional than 1088.

    Not to mention the 5 minute gaps in whatever was recording when you do the restart. And then you might find playlist is screwed up again 20 minutes after restart. Has anybody tried calling retention and getting some kind of compensation for having to put up with broken software for months?

    Hey moderator, is there a way that you could make this a sticky thread or create a new thread at the top of the page? DIRECTV is having so many issues with the latest firmware software that people is flocking to this forum looking for answers. And all they’re doing is creating new threads that is not necessary. Thanks!

    Have not had a single issue.
    Have no issues with the guide/menu layout.
    Would like to have the logos back in the guide but can live without them.

    It helped a little. Scrolling over is fast but scrolling down is painfully slow. Some other commands are still too slow. When I first received the HR-54 a few years ago it was lightning fast. In some instances, I feel like I have the HR-34 again.

    We are in the era of releasing equipment, not just satellite receivers, that aren't ready for primetime just to get them to market and rely on software updates to correct any problems that crop up. This is a lazy and incompetent way of doing business and it should stop, but it won't.

    This thread is 85 pages long. I'm not sure that putting it as a sticky would really serve much purpose. Perhaps a much more condensed version of this thread with just a handful of posts hitting the key points would better serve the purpose?

    recordings went missing again on 1088 yesterday. Somehow, miraculously, my mother was able to figure out how to go into manage recordings and watch her show that way? I would never have thought of that, but at least you could find it. But she was really pissed off about it!
