    Living within the Pittsburgh, PA market and I got the update over night. It's still downloading for "All Movies" and "On Demand"doesn't yet recognize I'm connected to the Internet, but I figure it will work itself over the next couple days.

    Given the last time I checked it seemed like I might not get the new GUI until March, I'm willing to put up with glitches over the next couple days.

    Got it in Baltimore last night. Only had a few minutes to mess with it this morning, but noticed entering channel numbers didn't lag. Also the scrolling was as fast as everyone said. I noticed they took away showing a picture with most shows and movies. Loading the picture seemed to really slow down the old guide. Is it just because they haven't been downloaded yet? I could do without them.

    'Posters' will show up soon for you, and they do not seem to have any impact on quickness at all.

    Had the new software for two weeks now. The guide is great for zipping through, but on both my HR20 & 21 it takes 10 sec at least to get back to my full screen...very sluggish. Tried rebooting and no difference. Anyone else notice this?

    If you're DMA is not on the list, then you are not scheduled yet and will be scheduled in the future. It is a very fluid situation right now. There is no way to know when you will be scheduled if you are not on the list, but it should be relatively soon (1 to 8 weeks).

    Well, they do have The Ravens.....:D

    There's no ranking by income, education, political majority in deciding which DMAs are chosen in what order. Size, yes, and probably other factors we can only guess at.

    I get the DC channels also, but noticed last night that the trailer for the new guide is now showing up just before channel 4 in the guide. So I guess that its coming soon.

    What a huge disappointment to see the changes to the 12/20 schedule. My area has been removed!

    Got it this morning at 2:25 a.m. in Tuscaloosa, AL (Birmingham DMA).

    I had read on this thread where someone's Slingbox wouldn't work with the new software - so I am relieved that mine is working fine. Mine is the original Slingbox and I'm able to view it on my PCs and on my iPhone.

    The new guide is MUCH faster. Not sure I like the black banner at the top when channel is selected, but it is an ok tradeoff for the improvement in guide speed.
