    Glad you seem to like it. Are these updates rolled out by region or by receiver (34,44,54)? I live in the NW and nothing yet on my 54.

    I think some customer data, like how long you're a customer, plays into it as well, but I'm not sure. I've seen reliable posters post things to that effect. No one I know here (Vermont) has it either, except me but I CE test.

    Seems we never learn from history. As soon as I heard new GUI, my mind slipped back a few years and brought up the last GUI fiasco. That lasted for months.

    One thing people keep saying is Nita more buttons to get to series manager. I counted them and is less... not sure why everyone says that.

    Good point. That is one of the few things that is better in the new interface. Unless people don't realize you can press channel down and it brings you to the bottom, which it does interface-wide from menus like that on the left, just like the old. It never made any sense to go into the menu to manage recordings and now you don't have to. And with how simply awful the menu is now, the less I need to go there, the better.

    I honestly don't know. I just woke up one day and there it was. My brother does not have it on his HR54 or clients yet.

    Yup, but I remember what happened. I'm not surprised by the problems folks are seeing.

    True. But honestly id never count that since only couple 100 probably even know about and use that. I just can’t count something that isn’t known and requires a secret keyword search to even activate. It may be different for a very small number of us but for a regular customer this is a better solution. Personally I can’t even recall what they all where so I never used them regularly.

    New York,...
    I noticed when I change channels on the new GUI - I have to look to my right to see the channel. It needs to be moved to the left or moved more left because the channel banner sits to the far right. The channels seem to take a few minutes to change on my Samsung tv that is connected to the RVU client. Sometimes the client does not respond to a channel change or task from the remote. I changed my batteries just to make sure. It definitely was not the battery. In the GUI - while scrolling and selecting something to watch - there seems to be a slight delay or lag before the change happens. It's a nice clean GUI but it needs the kinks ironed out. Also bring back the caller ID call list! And get rid of the radar and a new one to the weather channel app. I can't stand it. Get a better radar. Ask the weather channel to put a better one on there app.

    My HR54 has not updated either. My Mini 4K updated weeks ago. So frustrating as it appears I will not be enjoying Mondays Game in HDR. What a tease. I get a message saying The Game will be in HDR but since I didn’t get the update last night I am out of luck I believe. I think it’s only in the Stream Friday mornings.
    I can see the Color option in video settings on my mini but can not navigate to it. Ugh
