I am in the Pacific Northwest. North of sEattle and no new guide for me...suppose to be Dec 20
The same thing happened to me (in Denver) and then I got the update about a week later. So it appears they speeding up the rollout.
Just received a "Coming soon...." email from DirecTV about the new GUI. We are slated to receive it on Wednesday, January 4th here in Reno, NV. Looking forward to it!
Just received a "coming soon..." email in Medford, Oregon for the HD GUI. Due January 4th here.
how do i get this dang hr24 to update?? my DMA was a week ago or so....
Updated list is now January 4 for Seatttle. See post #593, for example.
:welcome_s to DBSTalk!
What is your DMA?
That is NOT what I wanted to hear. My HR22 (still with the old GUI) is a huge slug when it has less than 20% remaining disk space and is recording another program. It sometimes takes 2-3 seconds to respond to a single button push. Maybe it is time to send it back to Directv with a toe tag on it.
Absolutely no amount of complaining has caused D* to put the ToDo list back on the Yellow Button where it belongs. And, believe me, we've complained. Just falls on deaf ears.
Is anyone that works for D* online now that can tell us if you're ever going to put the ToDo list back on the Yellow Button???
No one will comment.
That 22 deserves that fate. Meanwhile, you might try deleting some programs, that should speed the thing up a bit. The new GUI did speed up my 20-700s and 24s a bit (they weren't slow to begin with, but I can see a difference especially on the 20-700s).
I do hope you will post about your experiences with the 22 and the new GUI. I find it hard to believe the GUI will speed them up enough to make their performance acceptable.
I have two HD receivers (same model). One of them got the update about a week ago and the other one has not.
Is that normal or is something wrong with my receiver?
Normal - No. Unusual - Also No.
thanks for the warm welcome, long time reader, first time poster!

I'm not going anywhere, overall I'm very happy with DirecTV. I'm sure they'll improve the speed and the opaque banner. I just wanted to let others know that not everyone is seeing speed improvements.
Happy New Year,
Kevin, I would have been terribly shocked if the HD GUI had performed perfectly right off the bat. And you're right to post about what you see or don't see. Just keep in mind, if past history of these "big changes" holds true for the GUI, it's gonna take a bit of time.
You were rescheduled to January 12th.
After having tried for about 1.5 months to download in advance, nothing still comes up in the Bay Area, CA. Two H22-700's . Hmm, wonder if there is some issue, seems others should have gotten it on 12/20/11
Is your area listed as having it released yet? If not, thats why you haven't been able to pull it yet, because your not authorized to have it yet.
I remember seeing the revised schedule and the SF Bay Area is delayed to the first part of Jan but I can't find the latest schedule revision to refer it to tivoboy. Maybe if someone with the ability can post that in an easy place to find (like the 1st post of this thread?) it would be helpful.
Now I see where Athlon646464 posted the PDF schedule link right above but it would be nice to have an anchor link somewhere that's easy to find.
Normally those would update around the same time but not necessarily
especially if the update was blocked or got interrupted from the other receiver
You can try forcing an update on the receiver that still needs the update.
Go into settings and setup and do a normal reset (reboot) on the box
and when the it starts to come back up and as soon as you see the very
first screen, immediately type 02468 on your remote and that should put
the box into a forced update and go ahead and download the latest release.
Since your other box has the update already, I would presume that your
area location already has the update available so a forced update should
picked the new software.
If that doesn't pickup the new update then you do have something strange.
Might want to call DirecTV at that point, maybe something not setup
correctly in their records for that box?
Hope that helps
