    Here is a place where you all can ask that same question.

    It looks like a lot of cities can expect it in December but many will have to wait longer than that.

    Important to note that this is a staggered release and the link RunnerFL posted states "over the next few months", so everyone should NOT expect it overnight...

    So by DMA it means the city you receive your locals from right? I'm not that far from Detroit but I get Toledo locals so I guess that leaves me out.

    Am I missing something here? Why can't they just release it? Or do they not do that to try and control the amount of calls they get?

    Exactly. It's a pretty major user interface change. Imagine the call volume if 20 million customers got this all at the same time!

    Even if the national rollout does not get to your DMA very soon, you still have the option of doing the manual firmware download/update during the time period Directv is putting the GUI version out in the download stream. This seems to be between approx. 5am and 7am EST on many weekday mornings (sometimes starts earlier and sometimes not at all). You can check the web page for the Directv Firmware Watcher to see which version is currently in the download streams for the various Directv receivers and DVRs. I download the 0x0576 version to 2 of my HD-DVRs last week and to my 3rd HD-DVR earlier this week.

    Anyone know if Miami/FLL includes the West Palm Beach Area ?

    While you are essentially correct (the 'firmware watcher' is not D*'s), I always feel compelled to add to posts like this that forcing something to your STB is not without some risk.......

    Looks like there will be joy in Nashville on December 9. :up:

    I actually thought it downloaded last night since all my receiver's blue circles were nice and bright this morning. But, just another teasing maintenance update.

    West Palm Beach is a separate DMA from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, so my guess is no.

    I guess those who live closest to DIRECTV HQ on either coast will be the last to get some HD...

    It appears that all of the markets on the list are HD LIL markets. Guess this means those of us not getting HD LIL are not getting the HD GUI until last. Screwed again!

    He might, but he might not be allowed to share it. Frankly, I'm not so sure the list linked to earlier should have been posted in the first place. There's a reason they keep this information quiet - if they tell you you'll get it on a certain date and it doesn't happen (which is very possible), you'll scream.

    Well, that list is posted in a publicly accessible site on the internet. If DIRECTV didn't want it public, they would have put that information out there in another way.
