    Wow, I am surprised how different people can affected. The white font is better for me... I use my kindle app with white font. With that said, they do need to have options. Didn't there used to be a way to change colors or themes? Been on DTV since 1999, and seems like at one point you could? Anyway, still loving the hdui myself.

    My wife hates the white on black. I wish one could make a simple color switch somewhere. It IS probably better for TV's and viewing over time, but I'd prefer a choice.

    I have an HR24/200 and live in Santa Fe,NM (zip = 87508). I received my emails from Directv about "coming soon" and "its here" regarding HD Guide, and we were scheduled to get new guide on 1/5 according to published scheduled. Yet, I still have the old guide! And I tried to load new software twice (red button + 0 2 4 6 8) and it loaded 04d1 which it said was new software but still old stuff. It been more than 48 hrs since my "its here" email, so what gives, anyone else with this issue??

    Another of my repeated warnings - don't do the 02468 thing unless you know what is in the stream when you do it. You could snag problems for your box and/or TV viewers in your household.

    Forcing something to your box even when the new HDGUI is in the stream is not without some risk, and you may be on your own if you have problems. Do so only if you understand the risks and are willing to fix issues on your own or with help from this board.

    If your box was 'scheduled' and you did not receive it, you will 'soon'. Be patient.

    HDP-

    What published schedule do you refer to? There have been revisions, and some skips in individuals not receiving it the first go 'round.

    Plus, in addition to Athlon's cautions, it's not red button, but menu reset that one uses more safely than the other. Then, when blue screen appears, enter, then check that it's d/l'ing the correct software. If it's not, then red button and do more research.

    Best wishes to The City Different!

    Lax - good pickup - didn't even notice he was using the red button. Perfect example of how a little knowledge can be 'dangerous'. :confused: Using that method and forcing a download 'willy nilly'.

    Using the red button should be a last resort in all cases, and only when the box is locked up IMHO. It's safer for your hard drive to use the menu reset.

    Got the guide last night (my zip is 87508, NM) . Works great on HR24, smooth, fast. Still loading up some graphics as expected. Reminds me a lot of old guide with new front on it. Looks great however. Seems faster and smoother than before. All the screens have been spiffed up and look new and modern. Nice.

    We are in the middle of moving - and missed our Jan 4 download window - we had the boxes off and stored during the last week. We have the boxes on now at our new house, and I am wondering how many days before we might get the new GUI...

    Any ideas - I am looking forward to seeing the new interface.

    that's ok, I did a search and dug up this in this thread... 3 weeks old, not sure if it is current or not though

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showpost.php?p=2922955&postcount=426

    I always over analyze everything, so I thought I should ask this... does it matter if the receiver is left on? OR should it be turned off... or as long as it's plugged in it doesn't matter... ?

    You are good to go as long as it is plugged in. 'On' or 'Off' does not matter.

    Well, not sure when you will see it, but it looks to me like it will be the regular and only nr by the end of this month, or the first of feb so I'd say thats the longest you would have to wait.
