    Charcoal gray...black, what's the difference? It's really dark and you can't see through it. When you change the channel, it blocks half your screen. Yes, the lettering is sharper and the graphics are nicer, but again, none of that enhances the user experience. The responsiveness is really nice. Overall, I give it a C+. If I could keep the responsiveness, I would take back the older interface in a heartbeat, especially with the DVR graphics/status bar, etc.

    No, even if your area has received the update you can't just get it anytime you want. It's not in the stream at all times.

    I would recommend calibrating the display settings on your television. I purchased a professional-type Blu-ray calibration disc prior to the HDGUI, from reading some of the issues regarding the gray/black. When your set is calibrated, it's like a night & day difference! I have an older projection HD set that is tougher to calibrate, and you can totally tell the difference from my LCD. IMHO, I truly don't believe that it's the HDGUI, I think it's not having your set properly tweaked.

    You can just sit tight it will come to you again soon enough this is why folks should not force a download unless they are willing to accept the risk you never know which version you might get you were lucky you did not get experimental firmware and/or lost all of your recordings and/or settings that could really be upsetting to you or others in your household.

    I wouldn't jump to that conclusion.

    I have bitch about the HDGUI as being too dark since the beginning. Now on the same television it is fine. Did I change anything on the television - no!

    Here's what changed - a HR21-100 with HDGUI firmware was swapped out for a HR34-700 with HDGUI firmware. Now, the white text no longer has that glowingness to it.

    BTW, I still don't like the color scheme. Think it is silly being mostly B&W. Want to show off HiDef. Then do some textures, some color. Items that would shine in HiDef.

    I rate the current HDGUI at C-

    It's a bit drab could be a little more blue but everyone is going to dark guides including apple tv with black interface. I just wish our guide showed more than 6 programs in the guide and playlist.

    Here's a Comcast guide I think never made it to market but more going black
    http://www.engadget.com/2008/01/10/hands-on-with-the-latest-tv-guide-software-comcast-dvr/

    I give it a B+ over the old guide it's a A++

    You'll have to wait, it's not released yet on the 34. For at least a while, I'd expect the 34 to be a version behind. It may sync up at some point, but no idea when.

    You'll have it soon - likely by the end of the month on all receivers.

    As asked and answered 10's of time previously, the HR34 is not getting the HD Gui at this time, it will be coming a bit later. It will be noted in the release notes when the time comes as well.

    RE: Quicktune.

    For my HR21 and HR22, I had to "resave" each channel to their respective places in Quicktune for the logos to reappear. For my HR20, the logos never left.

    Hmmm...:scratchin

    If you look back at my original post you will see I was being facetious... ;)

    Admittedly, I get out of breath reading a 50-line runon sentence with no punctuation. Even tapping the shift key once in a while would help. ;)
