    Here's the problem: If DirecTV would actually put out an estimated schedule on most of the markets you could cut down on people forcing and speculating. Publishing a schedule 1-1.5 weeks out is not the best way to approach it. Why is market #3 not even mentioned... even for say Jan 11 or Jan 25? You can always move it up, but the professional way to solve these issues is to be more up front with people rather than saying "anytime in the next 2-3 months" kind of business.

    I don't blame people for trying to rectify slow guide issues by taking things into their own hands.

    I guess I understand what you are saying, but I could make the same argument in reverse.

    If folks knew they were 6 weeks out, then that fact could also motivate them to take a chance and download this thing now.

    I'm only speculating, but the roll out timing for this update is very fluid. Most of D*'s customers don't even know it's coming, and they will get it when it is their time.

    A new update is not an issue, by the way - it's a new update.

    They did put out an unofficial estimated short-term schedule to installers, but it's already changed twice in two weeks. What makes you think a long term schedule would be of any use? I suspect such a schedule would be changed on a daily basis.

    The situation is very fluid. It depends on who at D* is leaving early for Christmas and who's staying during the holiday break. You need extra CSRs and engineers and installers around in case people have questions or need help. Or maybe not as many as you originally thought based on the feedback from the first few DMAs. It's a little tricky doing something like this near Xmas -- I suspect D* wanted this released last month but also didn't want to wait until after Xmas. So they're stuck juggling everything around.

    FYI, this does not fix slow guide issues. Some parts are faster, some are slower, and some are the same speed so they feel slower.

    When it lists a date you get the new UI, does that mean you wake up to it that day or that it comes that night, so you get it the next day?

    Impatiently waiting.

    Usually early in the morning hours on the date listed. There have been a very few exceptions, but that is the way it happens about 95% of the time.

    Latest Schedule for January. As always this list is subject to change with little to no notice. If your DMA is not on the list, then no date has been announced. Be patient it will come. Please do not try to force a download as well.

    There are actually ones left? That January list looks like it pretty much covers everyone.

    Ah, call me crazy, but I don't see Los Angeles, or New York listed anywhere. :D I just rushed over it though. I have a feeling the biggest dmas will be last, there are a few others I didn't see listed either, all of them larger rather than smaller.

    May want to check again... NY is at least listed and I could have sworn LA was listed for tomorrow, or maybe it was today.

    LA was on that list that I posted a link to. I almost want to say it was for 12/19.
