    Just sat down in front of my HR20-700. No TV apps, though there's a momentary message that "they are loading". No YouTube results, either.

    Will reset.

    If you haven't, make sure to restart your DVR.

    It's still not working for me on either of my HR21-100's. I still have 0452. TV apps has never worked for me.. it says "TV apps is still loading". I have internet connectivity on both DVR's and can download on demand movies no problem..just no TV Apps or Youtube. No option for internet videos in parental controls either.

    No Youtube on one of my HR20-700's.

    Did a restart and verified it is connected to internet. Downloaded a DOD episode to verify.

    Yes, same here, on a /500, but my HR20-700 does not get it. From other posts, there appears to be an unknown variable among the HR20s.

    I know one guy that took 24 hours for it to show up. It's probably just a matter of waiting to be honest.

    Silly question... most youtube vids are barely watchable at 100% original size on my 15" monitor. Don't they look like complete pixelated garbage when they are scaled / stretched to say a 50" 1080p tv?

    The ones I watched weren't stretched. And, they weren't perfect looking either. But they were watchable, IMHO.

    YouTube arrived this morning. And for those who ask, downloaded videos offered at 720p - or even 1080p - look fine on an HDTV.

    I have a PITA question, though. Can we change "sort" from relevance to date?

    There are channels in YouTube that carry shows that are regularly updated, weekly, even daily. The relevance sort seem to have nothing to do with date and since the guide isn't showing date - you get to wander all over the map trying to find the latest edition.

    The modifier is available at YouTube's own site. Can it be brought to D* access - or is it in fact already in there somewhere awaiting a viewer to press a magic button?
