    Been a long time since I’ve posted here. But this brought me back. I received the email about the interface update a few weeks ago. Today I got an onscreen message about the update being installed. I allowed it to continue, but when it restarted it didn’t appear any different. However, navigating deep into the menus I have some screens that are in the new design. Anyone else have this? I am not seeing any discussion about this partial update. Is this intentional? I’m seeing the updated screens only on my Genie Mini.

    I consider each new day without this upgrade to be a blessing :):)

    My receivers are the 20, 21, 24 series. No upgrade. To be frank, I haven’t followed this much. And it hasn’t been on my mind. I am sorry anyone is having a problem with the upgrade. My sibling has Comcast. The x1. Beautiful. And it would be great to have. Unfortunately, for Comcast, I prefer the channel lineup from AT&T’s DirecTV (especially with the upgrades of programmers’ HD; something not happening lately in my area of southeast Michigan).

    I think I have to agree with you. Base on the discussions it looks like ATT/Directv may not have a fix.

    I have the X1 at my apartment in Harrisburg PA. Not bad, but one downside is the lag with the 30 second skip. While their mobile app is still better than Directv’s they recently had to remove the ability to schedule recordings with it because of losing a lawsuit with TIVO

    Yeah, sorry, I should know better...

    Just the standard national releases. Haven’t done any CE downloads in a few years at least.

    I actually really like the look of the screens that have changed on mine. But I am a bit leery after reading this thread.

    You won't believe this. I just received today ,12/8/2017, another email from Directv "In just a few days when you turn on your TV, you'll see a brand-new DIRECTV entertainment experience. You'll love how quickly and easily you can access, control and manage content with new simple menu features, all on one screen." Here is the web info, AT&T, Another teaser. :):)

    I also received the same email today. The first one I received was mid Nov. Still have the old guide, update was never sent to my HR54. Do you think this will be the updated version? If so, hopefully more customers approve.

    It is the same one released a month ago. Minus the fade in the guide and list screens

    without real FW versions to compare, we can't deduce if the update happened or not from all the posts above :(

    Speed is better. Especially with the what’s on. But other than that and fade gone on two screens it is the same
