    LOL I lose. :D Let me clarify. After reading this thread it seems that the rollout could go into the spring? I was questioning why after a rollout that went through December, they couldnt just blast it out to the masses in January.

    You cut out your little piece that hardly anyone would call DirecTV. So you still lose

    Everything I'm reading says that Detroit was supposed to get it 12/8 but I forced updates to my hr24-500 and h25-500 and they are both showing the old ui. Any advice here? [MOD EDIT]

    Sure did and it showed updated on that web site so I assumed we had good info. I was asking a pretty simple question. I understand that dates change but was wondering if anybody knew anything. Apparently you don't.

    If you try to force outside the nominal push window, you will get the "current" but soon to be old blue gui.

    Let it be, it will most likely download Tue 12/13 through Thur 12/15 as other cities get their "push".

    They are controlling the number of calls to their call centers by using a staggered roll out, just as they always do. My guess is they are speeding up or slowing down based on the call volume they get with each DMA's release. That's why the schedule posted is very subject to change, and has changed.

    To release it to millions all at once in January could be call center suicide. :eek2:

    Sigh. I could walk to DirecTV in El Segundo, that means I'll get it last. Or get up at 3AM

    I suppose. Didnt seem that people would blow up the phone lines simply because it "looked" different. LOL I give people too much credit.

    With any software update there will always be X number that call because the box dies during the process. Y number will call because things are simply different. Z number will call wanting to know why they did or did not get it.

    Those calls need to be kept at a manageable level. In this case, Y & Z are pretty big factors.

    I received an email about the update on Friday. I am assuming that means it will be coming soon or they wouldn't have sent the email.

    I guess when someone says coming this fall, that I thought everyone would have it in the fall. I mean, that makes sense right? They never delay those price increases once they are announced though, do they?

    I don't think the two can be compared. But some major cities are getting the GUI in the fall. Now, some may to consider this Fall, but it is technically speaking. Some major DMAs are scheduled for this month.

    You've been a member here since 2008. You should know by now that major updates don't go to everyone at the same time.

    The update with MRV in it took MONTHS to rollout. The HD GUI just started rolling out.

    That's where I made my mistake. Got the build number confused and forced a non hd GUI build onto both of my receivers. Oh well, just have to live with the nasty blue ui for a bit longer.

    Unless the release date changes for your DMA, you'll receive it on the day it's scheduled. The link for the schedule in post #2 in this thread.
