    I got the new guide this morning. the my Directv guide just lists manes, no pictures. Also under extras, Active the weather forcast is blank.
    Does it take a few days to populate these?

    Winters,...
    In a word, yes. If it doesn't start to populate in 24 more hours, a reset might
    do the trick (though a wait period needs to ensue there, too.)

    Got it today in North Idaho -- Looks great but a 40" + TV would make it easier to read. My kicthen has a 16" HD and you have to squint at it -- All in all tho it's fine

    So far ESPNHD is showing directv subtitles just fine for me now, both programming and commercials.
    Maybe your issue will be resolved once all of the data populates with this new update?

    I got the HR34 installed this morning. I have a 73" tv and would really enjoy an HD GUI.

    Does anyone have any info or guesstimations on when the HR34 may be due for this upgrade?

    I have seen posts by people more knowledgeable that me, saying March or April. If you are a risk taker, you can join the Cutting Edge group, and help them test it now. Instructions are online in the forum.

    Woke up to the new HD guide on both HR24s this AM.

    Guide font is small and hard to read. Dark Knight color scheme is annoying.

    Now the TV Apps don't work.

    We pay more and get less...

    If you re-do your network setup in settings, your TV Apps should come back.

    Is your DVR being seen by your router? Did re-doing your network setup show your DVR is connected to the internet?

    If so, try a soft re-boot (from the menu). (Don't do this more than once in any 30 minute period.)

    Been playing the DBS game for15+ years and know the tricks...

    Everything WAS correct and working yill the new UI showed up..

    Ping the receiver and it's there.

    Everything has been reset and reconfigured and TV Apps are not working.

    Multiple soft boots and multiple hard boots and TV Apps still not working.

    Pulled the plug for over an hour three times and TV Apps still not working.

    The new UI... one step forward and two steps back. Thanks DirecTV.

    I guess someone else will need to chime in here. I'm at a loss.

    I did not have that issue with any of my DVR's. The rest of the new look is subjective, and I happen to like it as well as the increase in speed.

    San Francisco: Turned on the TV last night and the HDUI was there. No action on my part: it was just there.

    Some parts of the UI are definitely faster, but that makes the parts of the UI that aren't faster all that much more noticeable. For example: I press select on a show in the Playlist that is within a folder, and then I press back-arrow to bring me back to the Playlist -- very noticeable delay!

    I wish I could remember more examples, but there are one or two second delays (still) between certain key presses and any feedback that a button has been pressed.

    Oh, and I noticed that when I press Play to start watching something from the Playlist, I hear the audio for a second before I see the video. Is that a feature?

    So, looks like everything is on schedule for the roll out? Dallas market here, so looks like JAN 10 for me. I was able to get the HR24 updated, and LOVE the new UI. Can't get the HR22 to update to save my life, so just waiting a week on that one...
