    Today around 12:30 AM I was upgraded. Now I have to get use to the new fonts. I wish my c61k had the option for PIP, but I guessed I cannot get everything? :)

    400 is now WNC, LG has sold off their set top business to Technicolor, and Pace was acquired by Arris so they are now 700.

    New York,...
    Thanks inkahauts...I thought it was an upgrade to a previous version of the receiver. (Was hoping) maybe a new feature here or there.

    My HR 54/500 was also updated (Oxffc) early this morning. Overall, I like it, but change always takes some time. Don’t really have trouble reading the font, but everyone is different. Like the logos in the guide, but IMO some are quite small (Starz/Cinemax channels), hopefully they can enlarge them? Does anyone know if this will be the last update?

    I received my update yesterday. I personally have an issue with the size of the font, its very difficult to see. The font is very thin or skinny looking to me. Like all updates it takes a while to get use to it. I did notice they didn't change the size of font on their logos which are bold and stand out. Too bad DTV doesn't give you an option to change the font, like maybe an option of 3 different sized fonts.

    Would like to see the channel number/logo in the banner moved back to the top left. Also wish they would remove the darkened area at the bottom when you pause and darkened area at top when you press info. Maybe we’ll see more updates in the near future.

    I think, all the posts here with complains and suggestions must be reposted at ATT forum to get attention of DTV coders/SW Dept head

    I received the update yesterday on my HR54, but not on my HR24. My HR24 (old guide) can see the recordings on my HR54 (new guide), but my HR54 (new guide) cannot see the recordings on my HR24 (old guide) using Whole Home. DirecTV support was clueless on the issue.

    Edit: The Mini Genie client can now see the recordings on the HR24. But the HR54 Genie server cannot (even though I've selected to view all playlists).

    There is an option that filter just as before. But it’s been moved. In the playlist go to manager recordings and then it’s the very last item in that list...

    A question for an issue that seems obvious – or doesn’t present itself – to other, better informed contributors to this thread. According to my settings information, the new GUI – 0xffc – downloaded a little after midnight on 12/12. It has yet to install (the software remains 0xd80). There is no further scheduled upgrade.

    How many hours/days should pass before the new GUI installs after downloading? Does it occur automatically or, alternatively, does an on-screen prompt appear? If the latter, I have two relevant HDMI inputs to my TV – one directly linking the HR54 and the other an RVU connection, which I use exclusively because it permits 4k viewing. If a popup request to install in fact forms part of the process, would it only present itself when accessing the HR54 directly?

    Thanks very much from a tech-challenged septuagenarian!
