    What does this mean? Is this why when I've tried to force it based on Firmware watcher the last six times I saw it in the stream, I still didn't get it? Frustrating as hell...

    If it's in the stream, how do my DVRs know not to get it?

    There are up to 4 streams with different versions. Which one your box downloads is entirely dependent on your RID being on the "list" so when you force a download (or DirecTv pushes an upgrade) it will look on the transponder with the version you want/they want you to have.

    If your box isnt on that list, it will default to the standard national release that is always being sent.

    Thanks for the advice, but if we needed someone to tell us the rules, we'd ask a moderator.

    I was chatting with a co-worker out in Tennessee yesterday afternoon. DirecTV is a client of our company and he is working on the account. He mentioned he had just gotten an email announcing the HD-GUI. From that forum post it looks like his area is slated for a 12/8 software push.
    Seems to make sense to send out an email alert to customers shortly before the new GUI is sent to their receivers.

    Yeah, I noticed that the update has not been in the stream very much the last couple of nights. It has been consistently showing up between 5-6 am CST for my IRDs. I had upgraded both my HD DVRs a couple of weeks ago and had no issues. However, about a week ago, my bedroom unit (HR24-100) had to be replaced because the hard drive was starting to fail along with the cooling fan. It was replaced with an HR24-500, but I have not been able to find the new update in the stream so that the replacement has the new GUI also.

    Yep, noticed that right after I made my initial post when I went to look at last night's stream.

    I live in WV but get Pittsburgh as my local channels. Pittsburgh isn't even on that list, does this mean I'm going to be waiting into January>

    That list is not chisel in stone.

    The speed of the release will depend on many factors, but I suspect a large portion of that will depend on how many confuse customers hog up the phone lines at DirecTV with questions of what have you done to the guide I was use to.

    Hmmm, download the update off the internet, put on USB flash drive, plug into DVR and install. :D

    Then call for replacement DVR when it bricks. :(

    If it continues going by DMA, which it appears to be, Pittsburgh is DMA 23 so yes you would be waiting until January.

    You're not going to find it on the Internet for download.

    You mean Vegas finally came in first in something other than the first (and only) state to have legal brothels? On the other hand, just found out we're dead last in some kind of 'opportunity' survey. Also, still hovering around 15% unemployment and some of the WORST housing values in the country. One of my neighbors across the street got foreclosed on and the bank sold the house for $90k...it was bought for $140k back in 2002 when it was built!!!

    Anyhoo, just wanted to confirm that we (Vegas) indeed have the new HDUI. Both my HR24-500 & H24-100 were updated on 11/8/11 but cannot recall the exact firmware version.

    Peace!!

    Just out of curiosity, is the DMA list available for viewing somewhere? I would like to know where my market sets.

    Indeed. Welcome to DBSTalk!

    Your firmware version- actually, I think software may be the more accurate term, is findable under Menu->Settings and Help->Settings.

    A bunch of us are invading the Strip in a month or so. Beware!

    RunnerFL posted a link to a Nielsen PDF earlier in this thread: http://www.tvb.org/media/file/TVB_Market_Profiles_Nielsen_Household_DMA_RANKS.pdf

    However, note that they don't seem to be going in strict size order, so you probably won't be able to predict when your area is scheduled to get the HDGUI.
