    Got the HDUI last night and it looks like a day early.. The only thing that I don't have is my On Demand Channels. The only one that appears is ABC. These are going to appear in a day or so correct? I'm guessing it's still downloading the info.

    Got it on all 4 of my reicevers this morning in Ankeny, IA. Looks very nice and its fast. Hopefully in the next 24 - 48 hours when its done loading, it could even be faster.

    Monterey...
    Be sure to post extensively about that, O.K.? :D

    (The irony is not aimed at you, whatsoever) Glad you got it and like it so far....

    Got this morning in the Lincoln, NE dma and both HR21 and HR24 are fast from the getgo!

    Have not seen this mentioned before, but I really like the guide scroll when holding down the up/down arrows when in the guide. Page up/down is almost too fast, but the speed of the scroll seems just right to peruse while scrolling.

    So far, I am loving it!

    Mine was supposed to come on Jan 12 but I still do not have the update on either of my 2 HR24's.

    Has anyone else in Jacksonville got the update?

    Received mine yesterday, two days early. So far so good, much faster program guide. As HDJulie said, color scheme is different but I think I will learn to like that too.

    Bradt77mn,
    I live in suburb of St. Paul and received HD Guide update last week

    I have yet to comment until now on HD Guide to try and get used to new color scheme etc.

    The new color scheme is horrible in my opinion.
    Dark background with bright white lettering and some greyed out lettering.

    BTW, my TV has is calibrated so thats not an issue as some has suggested to others on forum.

    Channel changes have not improved, I use rf remotes and native resolution with 3 Hr20-700's and 1 HR21-100.

    Regards,

    Scott

    I went home yesterday to find the new guide on all of our HR24s. Absolutely love the darker color scheme. Very nice for watching in a darker environment. Seems a little clumsy getting around but I am sure I will get used to that.

    Got it for the DC locals this morning. Didn't have time to check all of the receivers or even play with it but I noticed the bedroom receiver was downloading something when I got up. Then I checked it in the family room (wife still asleep in the bedroom) and there it was.

    I just checked the receiver in the Office (actually in DC) and it hasen't been updated yet.

    Got it yesterday here in Huntsville (a good week early).

    Love the speed, and actually like the color scheme. I calibrated my display with an Eye-One, HCFR software, and the AVS HD disc. Everything looks great to me.

    My only nitpick is that "My Playlist" is the third option down, instead of it being the first option. I'm so used to hitting Menu and "Enter" to get to the playlist, going to take a few days to get used to scrolling down.
