We got the update in Cleveland area overnite, looks great.It is 0x57b
Welcome to DBSTalk!
will older Directv HD boxes like the H 20 get the new HD UI update? yes or no?
no the h20 will not but d* has already said that they will replace it with a newer box that is capable for no charge, in my opinion i would go for it due to the fact that the h20 is a lemon, the hr20 will get the new ui though, kenkraly thats a great city you live in there
I wouldn't say a lemon, other than the one model that was recalled. It worked for what it did, just ended up being more limited due to no Ethernet jack. If they offer free swap outs with no contract extension, I'd do it. But technically you could do it before, just say you want to hook it up to a 3D TV. I don't believe that extends the contract.
And to be clear, the H20 is the only HD box not getting it. The HR20 is.
Got it in Elyria, OH as of this morning.
Santa delivered in Fort Lauderdale last night. Updated all 3 receivers with shiny new GUIs as scheduled.
It's a good thing I put out the milk and cookies!
very correct, the last blast fact said they will offer a replacment for those wanting the new ui with no contract extension, i do have to say i would prefer an HR20 over the 21s i have currently, they have always been slow and the new ui helps but not all that much, just waiting for my upgrade time to come
I think you can say you need OTA and get an HR20. It's generally one of the exceptions to the you don't know what you'll get policy.
When you hit the Guide Button you will get a Welcome Screen which will tell you all about the New HDGUI and what it does for you!!!
Well, you had better have a 3D TV when they get there.
Yes. Welcome to DBSTALK!!! :welcome_s
Got it last night! The new UI that is :lol:
All good on the 3 DVR's and the 1 box(Miami, FL 3:36AM).
It looks like the rollout algorithm may involve total market size (DMA) and DirecTV penetration as well other factors of which we are not aware. If they went strictly by market size the call centers would be slammed...probably not the best course of action.
I actually figured it could be a direct user swap out. Or, what's to say you want your other equipment to be compatible before you get the 3D TV.
Next week should be fun for me...I already have a friend kvetching at the update process, and that it will flush his guide and two reboots...
Received it yesterday. The guide is jet black with blue highlights. I do not like this color at all. The best part is that it is supper fast in every way. I think they should have given an option to switch to a blue screen with black highlights.
Got it yesterday in ATL. Very slick and MUCH faster response on both my HR20 & HR22.
Kudos to DTV!!!:up:
NY and LA are #1 and #2, and obviously the biggest DMA's in terms of number of subscribers. It would make sense to not make them the first to get the new HD GUI, as when something goes wrong support will have a LOT of customers calling.
I'll bet that if the December rollouts go as planned, that NY and LA will probably follow some time in January.
lol... you didn't specifiy what further down meant first time around. I call shenanigans. Regardless, what relevance would it have that they were further down from LA and NY when i was questioning your assertion that the list was based on DMA size and i pointed out 6 markets that are significantly larger that are not included than the bulk of what's launching in Dec?
So let me see if i have this straight now. It's by DMA size, except certain DMAs are being left out, and and for those that are included, it's not really in the correct DMA order in terms of biggest to smallest, but it's by DMA size.
