    :welcome_s to DBSTalk!

    It's actually gone very smoothly given how major the change was and comparing this to previous updates.

    And - they are actually ahead of schedule! :D

    There was a time when it first started when we were talking about 'the end of February' before completion. Now it may be finished by the end of this month!!

    I installed a new HR24-200 yesterday, and got the new icon-based HD UI last night.

    Either they re-scheduled or your box was busy during the download window.

    The new guide is ok. For some reason I was expecting more, but I thought this whole thing has been over-hyped a bit. Hopefully they can make some modifications in the future such as the progress bar. It needs to be bigger and transparent. The black that covers up the entire bottom of the screen is slightly annoying, but not too bad. They can make the lettering bigger as well. Both my parents who are in their 50's, while being happy about the faster response times were also disappointed by the size of the letters. Overall its a pretty good guide. Its simple and straight forward.

    Typically middle of the night. It doesn't matter if your box is On or Standby.

    Not so much 'off', but not recording something or being watched.

    My HR24-500 received 0x57b on 10 January 12. The new HDUI is a improvement but I have noticed a couple of flaws. Channel logos did not return on QuickTune. When using Extras on the menu when you select Showroom the following message appears "1999 (SHOWROOM) is currently not available". Yet when you use Guide and enter 1999 it appears twice. Selecting the top version gets you the not available message. Selecting the bottom version brings up the Showroom menu. Resetting the receiver does not correct these flaws. Has anyone else experienced this or discovered other flaws?

    It would still come down even if someone was watching. They'd see a prompt asking if they wanted to apply the update.

    Got the emails earlier this week telling me it was here, but no joy each am. Kinda like waking up xmas morning to learn Santa skipped you!!! :(

    Will be patient, we got a couple doses of the white stuff this week, hopefully they passed us just in case the wx was going to cause signal outages. (Its a nice dream, don't burst my bubble) :)

    I live in the Chicagoland area and two out of my three HD DVR's were updated two days ago. Why has the other one not been updated? Tried to force download with no luck.
