    I got FW version 0xb87 this morning at 5:08 am on my HR24/100 DVR.
    I will check later to see if my son got it on his H24 receiver. Update: his receiver is the H24/700 and it did not get it. FM Watcher shows the other H24 model numbers are or did get it.
    So far it appears Ok, I will update if I see any changes.

    I got it on my -100. It fixed my longtime issue accessing Pandora on that box. Waiting to see if my -20 gets this or a similar update soon.
    Edit: please ignore equipment in my signature. Maybe I'll get around to updating it sometime.

    I got 0xb87 on 12/9 Thurday. Has one problem. When the remote turns on the receiver and tv, once the tv comes up it says searching for signal. It's an HR22/100 receiver and a 6 year old Samsung TV. In order to get a picture, I have to use the middle power button on the big remore to power off the receiver and then turn it back on while the TV is stillon. It is using an HDMI connection and the TV doesn't activate as fast and new ones, so the receiver times out the HDMI port waiting for a handshake. Now the new, improved software has made my tv experience a nuisance to get started.

    Have you tried switching the tab to the TV spot, press Power, then switch back to DTV spot and press the ON button?
    Or, use the TV remote to turn on the TV first so it can warm up ?
    My 8 year old TV did that also but I am not seeing it on my 1 year old 4K TV.

    Patience, it's a very slow roll out.

    Update: Twice in the last 3 days now when I turn on my set I have a message about purchasing the channel. Today it was channel 245 which I have always gotten. The other day it was a different channel.
    Going to do a reset to see if that fixes it and a Refresh along with it.

    Suggest you try another hdmi input on your tv -Does that change anything? some folks are having a hdmi handshake issue - you could change to componet cables as see if that re solves it - same pix quailty better that replacing your hddvr and losing recording
