Forgot to look this morning. Did L.A. end up getting the new guide?
Got the update today in Fresno! Looks great and quite a bit faster on my HR22's and HR21's
Got my update this morning very slick and nice looking GOOD JOB DTV
Los Angeles got it on schedule too. Looks good, scrolls alot faster.
It's been 7 hours tho and my scheduled recordings have not updated!!
You don't have to redo your season series manager do you?
All 4 of my HR's series recordings are intact
It only was downloaded into two of my three HR boxes. Do I need to manually attempt to get the third box to load it, or wil it do so on its own?
I am not too happy with the huge "this isn't an HD television" banner message on the SD outputs. It appears every time I do anything other then playback. I like to watch shows (in HD) as I record them with my DVD recorder (in SD). I could easily live with NO graphics, but that warning has to go. Is there a way of disabling it? At least, can the persistance be set to a shorter duration? If it's stuck this way, it will really affect my TV watching. This could be a reason to get the new TIVO-DirecTV box.
No update yet for me here in San Jose. This might have already been answered somewhere in these pages of posts...for the dates in the schedule...there's two. The table at the top indicates 12/20 for the bay area but underneath the bay area is listed as Jan 4th. Is 12/20 the kickoff date and Jan 4th the final date when all receivers in that area will get the update?
edit: this morning I did see the HD guide video in my playlist...without the new HD Guide. not a big deal, waiting patiently .
1. Be patient. Your other box will get it soon, too.
2. To solve that problem, get a Component-to-Composite Video Converter and use its output to feed your DVD Recorder. They're available from places like Monoprice for ~$40.
Agree. I do the same thing. Wasn't aware of the new GUI rollout and no message from DirecTV. If that warning is any indication, nosir, I don't like it.
I'm curious. Do all of your HR2x receivers have the Zip Code data in the More Info screen?
Got it this morning on my H24, HR34 not yet. I honestly don't see why everyone is so pumped about this, it is literally the exact same, just black, with some huge icons for settings. No additional guide layout options, still no graphics on the H24, etc. If you want to see a real nice guide, FIOS is where it's at.
You'll have to wait on the HR34. The GUI hasn't been released yet.
Jan 10th. Kinda disappointed about the comment above about not much difference though.
This could be the first stage. We don't know what's coming down the road in 2012.
As for graphics on the H24, if that is things like posters in the guide, don't think that would happen on a box with no hard drive.
Got it in Columbus today. Looks good.
DirecTV wants to take its time in upgrading so people don't go into shock, so they are starting with converting all the graphics to he and rendering the entire guide in he, and speeding the thing up. I am sure there will add more features in the next nr, and the next after that, and the next after that, and so on. They do smaller incremental changes, to make it easier for people to figure out as a whole. I'd be fine dealing with a major redesign, in fat for me that'd be better than smaller incremental steps, but the masses in general, this is a much easier way for them to learn new stuff.
What happen to San Francisco Bay Area? It was on the list and now it is not.
Didn't your lights go out last night?
I live in the Los Angeles DMA and received update 057B last night on my HR22 and 2x H24s. I have a new addition HR24-100 coming tomorrow. Since the LA update has already happened will I have to wait for the update to the new HR24 or will it be available immediately since my DMA is eligible for the update?
