    FYI: I received a replacement H21-200 today. Came with FW 4016 so I force the NR. 4080 is DL'ing as I type this.

    Any chance you go folks at DirecTV could push the latest CE we're testing or do I have to wait until Friday? :)

    Additional Installation Notes: Every time I attempted guided setup the box bricked. Unplugged my AM21, RBR'ed and was able to get the box setup fine. All seems to be well now.

    You should have to wait as long as I had to. :lol:

    Yes, don't connect the AM21 until after the software update. I believe it was part of the reason mine "bricked" with the first push.

    I too received mine and I too had to disconnect the AM21 to get it to boot up. After disconnecting it all went well. After running for a little while it downloaded 0x4080 automatically. Now just waiting for the next CE update.

    I haven't received the word yet but I suspect there will be a software push very soon for those who received replacements.

    You can say whatever you wish, you can project based on past pushes, but I just don't know yet. Honest, I'm not holding back on y'all.

    Anyone else get a kick out of seeing the old GUI? I had forgotten what that looked like.

    Got my replacement and hooked up last night. Had to unhook the AM21 to get it to go thru guided setup.

    I updated to the latest national release.

    As for sending back the broke one, I assume we can send it back in the same box we got the replacement?

    Yea, I actually love it. I was very disappointed in how slow these latest CE's have made the box and this really opened by eyes as to how much. It is soooooo fast on the old national release. This is the Sunday Ticket box I love! I hope they can address the speed issues in the next couple CE's.

    Not to do a +1, but the speed issue with the software is significant.
    While it may be nice to have all of the receivers look, act the same, this isn't a "feature" customers/users will enjoy.

    Hope so. Hopefully the interactive stuff can speed back up to previous rates as well. When the HR20 interactive is just as fast it's a bit weird. :eek2: ;)

    Assuming I get the next push I'll try and hammer it again on Sunday.
