    WOW, that list certainly changed. Are they actually speeding up the rollout? I guess they aren't as patient as we thought they'd be.

    According to that schedule, we Denverites have our turn on 12/21.

    Got the HD GUI in Charlotte, NC this morning. I woke up and it was there. Haven't had time to mess with it, but noticed a little stuttering still. Right now I'd call it "minor improvement."

    Really? I've had a non-Tivo DirecTV DVR since August of 2010. Exactly how many of those major updates have taken place since then? Answer? None. So no, I wouldn't have known because I haven't experienced it. But I guess that's what happens when you assume something.

    And it looks like this rollout is going to take MONTHS also. Pardon me if I got excited and then disappointed.

    The MRV rollout was pretty major. You would also know how long rollouts take just by reading posts here.

    The Ad Banner inviting us to "Watch a Video on your New HD Guide" just showed up in the Guide here in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Looking forward to the 15th which is the date the list has for Birmingham.

    Particularly since for a lot of customers, that required hardware. Offset in part of course by not everyone calling wanting it in a span of a month or two.

    It was moved from 12/14 to unknown but if you look New York, NY is 12/21/11 so Chicago can't be too far behind that right? ;)

    Got the HDGUI update this morning in the Greenville/Spartanburg area sometime between 3am and 7am.

    I tried to jump the gun at ~2:45am and do a RBR / 02468 but it pulled down the old version. I crashed shortly afterwards disappointed, only to be surprised like a kid on Christmas morning when the updated GUI was there this morning.

    Menus are "sexier" and faster, I like the fade that has been done on the top of the bottom-of-screen trickplay menu.

    Although that has happened to a few DMA's, in general the pace seems to be accelerating. You will likely be back on the list in a matter of weeks.....

    Is it possible to change the primary zip code on the receiver before the download window to fool it into receiving the new guide if your market isn't listed?

    Zip code on a receiver plays no role in that.
