    Once it comes to your DNA, you'll need to unplug you box every time you're not going to use it.

    Right, but if it wasn't him another family member might have said 'no'.

    Sure, but that's their choice not because DirecTV didn't attempt to send it.

    Yup, but he might not have know someone else said 'no', and that was the reason for my original reply to him.

    The person is trying to avoid the HDGUI. I know it useless, but do you know another way?

    Where do you see the person saying they are avoiding it? They asked what time so he could have is box off which as most of us know is "standby". Nowhere did he/she say they were avoiding the download.

    There is no way to avoid updates anyways.

    Agreed. This new guide is a major disappointment. All the black is just horrible. Hate that the info box on top is not see through anymore. The tiny lettering is just a killer. Response time is really the only improvement.

    Switch to SD, or buy an owned H20, which won't ever get the HDGUI. If it's an HDDVR, then there is no way to "avoid" it.

    You may need to adjust your set: the b/g is grey, not black. The lettering is sharper than before.

    Sorry you don't like it.

    If you try to force an update, you will likely get the old GUI, because the new one is only available for a few hours in the middle of the night on a weeknight. If you don't know when to force or how to tell what version of the software is being updated, you shouldn't do it.

    Too many people want the latest and greatest, but need to do their research on their own without being and handheld through the process.
