    They all have the same zip code. I got three boxes at the same time, but one of them died and was replaced some time later. It's that third (newer) one that did not get the update.

    Since no one repled to my question, I am assuming that there is no way to turn off the "This is not an HD television" banner, or even limit the on-screen persistance of it.:( Unfortunate. Maybe in a future release?

    Because your DMA is now authorized, it should be pushed to your new box the next time it is in the stream.

    My to do list on a hr20 finally populated. all good.
    It looks alot better than the old gui. Scrolls like a hr24
    They finally made the FF timeline small as well.. I always hated that when trying to skim thru a football game or something with the time & score at the bottom.

    Thanks for you quick reply Athlon!


    My parents are less than thrilled about the new guide update (they don't like change & feel the old yellow/blue is easier on their eyes) Is it possible to revert their HR20-100 back to the old guide? In the event that it is possible, will it inevitably just be upgraded back to the new HD again?

    It will be upgraded to the new HD, no matter what, so I suggest they start getting used to it. Reverting may be accompanied by some adverse side-effects (some anticipated, some not), so I would tell them since it is going to be the new standard, don't try to revert, rather try to get used to it.

    Ugh. Old people are such a pain in the arse when it comes to dealing with change. They just need to accept it and not let their attitude towards new things get in the way of the fact that the new guide is much better for their eyes.

    Fact?

    I have a one-word answer, but it's not printable!

    I'm pushing for some preset options - one being scheme choices.

    Not sure what you're seeing as the new progress bar section now takes up one third of the screen! The progress bar is smaller but there is a ton of blacked out area as well. Not good :mad:

    Not gonna happen. DirecTV has stated numerous times that they want everyone to have the same interface so that it is easier for them to support their customers when they call.

    They'll have two interfaces though, technically not even all hd boxes will be on the same GUI, you've still got the H20. A couple of color options shouldnt affect support. It won't please everyone though.

    I don't think it's just "old" people who don't like change. Maybe you need to learn to have a little more respect for "old" people.

    By some standards, I am "old", but generally like and embrace change, so clearly, mileage varies.

    I would probably be considered "old" also and I don't mind change. I just thought the comment about us old folks was unnecessary.

    In over fifteen years of satellite service, color has never been mention in any conversation I had with a CSR when I had an issue. Matter of fact, in over forty years of using a computer, I don't remember any mention of any tech in the world ever asking what Window colors are you using when you had a computer problem. So I seriously doubt the DirecTV CSR would start doing so if we had choices of several color schemes.

    Don't worry, the feeling is mutual. We 'old' people don't the young for all the useless changes they make. :lol:

    Absolutely zero chance DirecTV would ever build a system that will allow you to change the color scheme. Zero. It's a branding issue.
