    That's a lot of work! And could be risky on the reverts.

    The GUI can use more refinement, but is OK here. Some hate change!

    It’s pretty simple. As long as x0D80 is in the stream, it’s a reboot and 02468. We have had no problems going with that NR.

    Yeah but eventually that option won’t be there. However hopefully it’ll be a newer version of the GUI that doesn’t have the slow issue you are experiencing.

    Have you called and complained about the new GUI yet?

    No- we were gone for Christmas Vacation. I’m getting serious lag time in navigation no matter which C61K we use with the new GUI. Those are the only clients we have. It’s almost like having a HR34 all over again.

    My HR54 updated early Wed. morning (0x1001). What was this update for? Still have the annoying shading on top and bottom of screen. Hopefully, DT will refine/redo certain areas of this guide.

    This was an update for FFC - as always no details are ever given for an update - always "under the Hood" so nothing specific about anything - expect more in the coming weeks if not sooner :)

    We reverted back to the old guide. Just could not read the new one. On a large TV, it is almost impossible to read from a distance, particularly the time and channel number. And, the new guide was slow, the playlist was more clunky (don't like only seeing the most recent show in a series, having to click on it, to see the rest). I'm really surprised that AT&T/Directv would release such a poor product or that it made it out of Beta testing. If anyone from the company reads this, please pass on to management.

    Go into setup on your TV,
    write down the numbers for the contrast and sharpness.
    Try adjusting those 2 settings only with the Guide on the screen so you can see the difference in the letters.
    If it does not help, change it back to the numbers you wrote down before you started.

    Also, check the resolutions that you have checked in your DTV receiver. 1 person said it helped that he unchecked the 480i and 480p settings.

    Thanks for the thought, but I can read my Tivo I use for OTA just fine, and I can read the old GUI to which I reverted. Directv needs to fix this mess before they lose lots of customers.

    FWIW- I have no problem reading the GUI text on any of my 3 TVs (all HD, 2 are 4K).

    @jal - please ensure your resolution is set to 1080i or 720p. The guide is really tough to read if you're using 480i (standard def).

    I agree with you. No problem reading the guide on my 4K or HD tv, however everyone has different opinions. My only requests would be to remove the dark shading in the banner and progress bar and return the date to the banner. The previous guide also had the dark shading and they did finally remove it. Just don’t understand the purpose of it to begin with.

    I'm glad that I got a software upgrade without a GUI change, but I suspect that it's only a matter of time. I'm curious as to why there would be a partial update........grateful but curious?:)

    The new GUI is a very slow roll out. There was something they needed fixed for everyone immediately. So you got an immediate fix for some underlining thing that couldn’t wait for the new GUI to hit your account.

    Directv Now's Beta version with DVR has no fade around the progress bar, I'm hoping that means they are going to get rid of it on the sat version of Directv.
