    Hello testers! This is my first trial and I'm getting excited to have a new toy to play with :)

    I see the H24 on my account, can I hope for a Saturday delivery? I am expecting an H24-100, but the DTV account info is trying to confuse me.

    With that, it looks like you're getting an H24-700 but it'll show in their system as the now-revealed -100.

    For those that are geting both a H and HR, will we be getting the BSFs and/or any other DECA stuff?

    Does D* have any requests on how they get connected?

    Since I have both a legacy setup and SWiM LNB setup, I can do either or fairly easily. Same for deca or ethernet. With or without AM21.

    RobertE posted an issue thread for xf352 Issues with the HR24-100.

    Given the fact that this is, for all intents and purposes, months old firmware, is there any reason why we should be reporting errors for this firmware?!

    Nothing wrong with posting issues. If DirecTV has fixed that issue already, they'll just ignore it. You never know when you might post an issue that they haven't seen yet.

    I wasn't criticizing Robert's post, but rather to figure out whether there was any need to.

    I set up a several things to record last night just to record some stuff, and one of them, a movie on MGM-HD ("Secret Admirer") wouldn't play back right. Every thing else seemed to record fine, but since we are on the old firmware, I didn't think to Report it.

    What's weird is that tonight, I'm not getting any sound on my HR24-100. :confused: I can't figure out why it's not giving me sound, and to the best of my recollection, I had sound yesterday night?! :confused:

    Maybe HDTVFan001 was correct when he implied I was drunk in the chat room last night?! :confused: ;)

    Didn't think you were criticizing him. Was just pointing out that even though it is old firmware, it is still a good thing to post about any issues. As for your sound, I think Robert posted something about that. I believe a reset corrected it for him. :)

    Just clarifying is all! :)

    Good to know... as soon as a recording stops, I'll try resetting it. :)

    I know reporting this one was considered carefully before doing, but since it was such an oddity and had such an impact he decided to play it safe.
    I agree 100% with him.

    Until told otherwise, I will report issues as before. This isn't my first rodeo.

    Your post did trigger a WTF moment for me.

    At this point, yes we have the original firmware, but it's hard to say what if anything has been done to that firmware to bring it current with the other models. As such, I feel that any and all issues should be reported. Better to get these issues identified early on than later.

    I think we're all past the brain fart at this point. I've had my share of those too.

    Well, deciding to follow your lead, I sent an Error Report last night before restarting... which solved the problem.

    Had I thought about it, I would have sent an Error Report for the freeze-ups I had Friday night as they were happening, but I couldn't get them to repeat last night.

    Thankfully, I didn't have that big of a brain fart... ;)

    They are generally FedEx'd that day. Should be overnight.

    It showed up on my account yesterday, so it should be showing up today, correct?

    Mine was on my account last Thursday but didn't show up until today. My situation doesn't seem to be the norm though.

    It showed on my account on Thursday, and I received it yesterday.
