    I have three H24's, have the new UI on two of them, not on the third. Phoenix, AZ. Don't remember version #'s, but on the one that doesn't, it was updated very recently (last week I think). I checked a few times to make sure it wasn't the HR34.

    What software version is that H24 running?

    H24/700 running 0xf4c4 Thu 2/16 11:18am

    But I messed up, actually all three H24/700's are still running the old guide, same version on all. I was accidentally looking at an HR24 rather than H24's when I said two had the new guide. My universal remote apparently isn't always selecting the proper source.

    My apologies.

    That version hasn't been in the stream for quite a long time. If you force a download you will get the new version. I have no idea why it hasn't been pushed to you.

    These were just installed last Friday (a week ago). I understand that forcing update gets me whatever is in the stream, which is hopefully current version, but could be a beta version etc.

    How long will I need to wait for update to be pushed if I don't force? Or is there any way to tell what version I'll get if I force?

    No betas are in the stream right now for that unit.

    It shouldn't have taken more than just overnight.

    You can see what's in the stream here: http://redh.com/dtv/index.php?r=H

    H24-700

    Do you know how to force a download?

    Do Menu/Reset

    And immediately when the front panel light turns back on, enter 0 2 4 6 8 in a steady but rapid fashion.

    You should see a searching for New Software screen within about 45 seconds. If you see Running Receiver Selfcheck, your 0 2 4 6 8 timing was off. Do a RBR (Red Button Reset) and be ready because the receiver will be a lot quicker turning the front panel light back on.

    But before doing any of this, I would call DirecTV and question why you haven't received an HDGUI update.

    No one that he can get on the phone would know. He'd just be wasting his time by calling them.

    Thanks Runner & Drucifer!

    Now have 0x059C on all three after forcing. I found it to work best with hard reset, then waiting not just for the DirecTV logo to light up, but to wait a little longer for one of the resolution leds to light up, then immediately press 0 2 4 6 8.

    That's not the newest NR, but it is HDGUI.

    Keep an eye on the H24-700 link I provided above. When you see 059E in the Left Column you can do another Force to get Pandora and lose your PIG 'trickplay' functions.

    Yep, it the same with most companies today. I call it the Idiot Layer.

    Well I'm not a company man. Telling people with issue not to call, just because the company uses an idiot layer to wall off calls, just makes the idiot layer more effective for the company.
