    I live in the Columbus, GA/Phenix City,AL area and did not receive the update on either of my HR22's or my HR24. The last I read was that I would get it on the 17th. Is that the morning of the 17th or evening of the 17th?

    Your box is typically updated early in the AM if it is not in use. So, they either changed your date or something interrupted the update for you.

    When you say something possibly interrupted it, does that include scheduled recordings?

    Has anyone in Minnesota gotten the new ui download yet? Also if I am recording stuff overnight will that interfere with me getting the download?

    It could.

    If that happens over and over, eventually* it will ask you while you are watching live if you would like an update to happen. You will then be able to reply yes or no.

    *When everyone has it.......

    Only if the new GUI is in the stream when you do it.

    I'm very surprised that whoever you talked to didn't tell you that. And even more surprised they brought it up at all....... :eek2:

    Until it goes national for everyone, forcing something to your box is not without risk, and even then, depending on when you do it, there is a small chance it could create problems for you.

    Got it here in altoona iowa about a half hour ago on our hr21-700 and it looks great and it's fast. I love it. Yes the banner and bar are dark but it's translucent and not even a problem. Nice guide.

    I'm here in the Montgomery, AL area and we weren't supposed to get the new interface until tomorrow. However, around 3am this morning all of my DVR's and HD boxes started whirring and bam it's here. Love the speed (HR24's & H24) and look of the new interface. I'll play around with it more this evening to find what I don't like.

    Just received the official email from D* last night. Is it always a week from when this email is received or can it come sooner?

    If you read through this thread you will see it varies a lot. My guess is you will have it by the end of the month in any event.
