    New software updates are starting to be staggered released to all three boxes...

    R15-100 : 0x1092
    R15-300 : 0x10AC
    R15-500 : 0x115C

    Earl

    NOTE: This is a STAGGERED release, so it will be a few days/weeks until everyone receives the update.

    NOTE #2: Release notes to be posted soon, but they are not very different (maybe not at all different), to those from 0x10AB/0x115B

    Can we keep this going with the "I got it"? Over the last 2 weeks my R15s never downloaded 0x115B, and I assume that's because the newer softeware was coming? Keep the posts going, I want the white GUI!!! As I have never been able to force a CE on my 15s, I am stuck with the old GUI.........:mad:

    Got 0x10AC last night. Resetted all of my pending recordings. Also resetted my system, so I had to re-input location information. Never had to do this with a software upgrade before.

    In the SF Bay Area.

    0x10AC came in for my R15-300. I'm in the SF Bay Area (East Bay).

    Love the new GUI colors. Nice contrast with the white. It is also noticeably faster responding to the remote commands. Anyone else notice that is faster?

    EDIT: Forgot to mention all my shows and scheduled recording were intact, no need to reset or re-schedule anything.

    Your comment on remote commands make sense now as to why they pulled the last national release and started this one. My best friend who lives in San Antonio got 115B on his -500 units on 10/3 and made mention that his remote commands were "sluggish".

    I had a chance to play with it some more. Definitely faster response. Even my wife noticed. Also, they finally fixed the sluggish return from FF/REW. It used to be a real pain going into playback from FF/REW (for my unit anyway) . You couldn't really count on the receiver to drop you in the specific scene the moment you pressed PLAY after FF/REW. To my amazement this update fixed the issue and now is about as smooth as my DTivo unit. D* finally got it right. :D

    P.S. Oh yeah, we have folders now!

    I have a 500 and still have ver 114A. I have tried twice this evening to force a download to at least get 115B but no luck. Any ideas or am I just a newb 'tard?

    EDIT: Yeah, I'm an idiot.

    After the reading the FAQ, like every good noob should do, I realized this and decided to edit my previous post.

    After receiving the update, my timezone preferences (which had been set to auto) said "Auto (Atlantic)" even though I'm in the Pacific time zone, and despite the Atlantic TZ setting, all displayed times appeared to be GMT. Same thing happened on two different R15-300s. Had to manually set the TZ to Pacific to get correct times.

    I'm trying to remember from my D* project days if roll outs are normally staggered west to east and how long they take before the whole country has it? Anybody know?

    I'm thinking it can be up to two weeks before we get it on the east coast.
