    Nothing like it was. It's now back to being no bigger than the last blue one. The bottom of the screen is now clear.

    I'm just repeating what has been said on here. Don't shoot the messenger.

    Yes, the current national release HD GUI software does have a redesigned progress bar with a large opaque background spreading over the bottom third of the screen.

    DIRECTV is aware of complaints about the size of the new progress bar in the national release so there's a very good possibility that an upcoming software release (following the completion of the HD GUI rollout) will change it. I wouldn't be surprised if DIRECTV is already testing this ...

    Got mine today also, the only thing missing is the star movie review rating, I read there was a different type of rating on this guide but mine does not show any. I moved to the Fresno area.

    It's Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes. You should see it within a few days.

    In retrospect I shouldn't have been so quick to generalize. I was more referring to attitude than actual age. I was also thinking about my parents ***** about things changing. They get each other all worked up about how much they hate something then call me to vent as if it's my fault. :lol:

    Got it this morning, it's faster and graphically better looking but but top info area is cut off on my set so that time and other info is chopped off (could be overscan). Also, when you select info, there is none when you select cast and credits.

    Give it a day or two for that information to download.

    I had a couple receivers get updated last night, and believe me, it takes a while for them to load all the new graphics, at least two days, maybe even three or four. Be patient! :)

    In NYC, my HR 23-100 received the new download - no problem.

    But - my Hr 24-500 is dead! "A problem has been detected in the storage device." Diagnostic Code 14-057.

    Coincidence????

    I doubt it!!!!

    Very likely you had an underlying problem with that box and it's hard drive and you were going to see it eventually anyway. The new software must need the 'bad spot' for something.

    Obviously you should call D* and get it replaced.

    Downloaded this morning on an H21 in Central NJ. Haven't checked my HR22 yet. I did notice that there were no channel logos on any of the channels I put on. Does it just take time for them to come too?

    Yes - it takes a few days to get the complete download. You box will speed up even more when it has everything as well. :D

    Yep. You're going to be old someday, if you're lucky. Lots of old people have eye problems but some of us just don't like changes. Me, I like changes when they improve something. I got cataract surgery last year and can see great but if I saw this new guide before that I would be complaining too.

    In my experience as a 'boss' and manager of people, I've seen people of all ages who do not like change. :D If it is for the better, however, most soon get over it, and would not 'go back'. ;)
