Is this another staggered rollout? I still haven't gotten the last staggered rollout on any of my HRs. Still on 0X59F.

I'm assuming this is to replace the previous Staggered Release that started on 4/23/2012 (0x45C8 - H21/23, 0x05C8 for all other receivers) due to the problems it was having?

That would explain why mine are stuck back with a March release.

Still waiting for new NR firmware on the HR20-700, HR21-100, HR20-100. The H21-200 got new firmware over a week ago. (it didn't much need it as far as speed/sluggishness goes).

So...we wait to see if a replacement for 0x59e makes it this far, any time in the near future, so we can evaluate whether or not the sluggishness/speed issues have been improved for the above boxes or not.

My HR20-700 has been on the NR firmware 0x59e since February 8, this year.

My guess is that Directv got the message that their FW development process is in trouble and now they are trying to clean up the mess and do some slow release to get feedback.

I got 5c8 on 4/25, never got 5cb, and got 5cd last night. With 5c8 and 5cd the speed is improved but they introduced the resolution bug that cannot be present in a NR. In addition 5cd seem to have made the remote response worse. From some quick test I get a lot of bounce keys and a lot of missed keys.

So, nothing to worry if you are still on the old NR. You do not miss anything a part some new set of problems. At least they seem to have learn one lesson: do not send a bugged release to all the customers. Pity that most are still stuck on a very buggy 59f.

Another new firmware update? Hope it does not make my HR20-100 worse. It's finally performing great with the firmware update it got a few weeks ago. No more SLOW issues. The only thing that's sluggish now is scrolling horizontally across the guide but not a big deal.

The biggest problem with 0x59e (which is what I have been stuck on since February 8th), is how sluggish/slow it can be to bring up various screens and respond to channel change requests. Buggy isn't the problem, the fact that trying to use HR20/21/22/23 series boxes (at least the ones I have), has become tedious at best, and downright unpleasant at worst.

So, I would welcome the newer versions finally making it as far east as Iowa, so we can evaluate whether the speed/sluggishness issues for these older HR boxes has been resolved (or at least improved), or not.

I don't have any theories. I'm just very dissatisfied with the performance of these boxes, and have been witnessing their degeneration for over a year.

probably a scolding :) I quit doing CE's close to a year ago. I was very happy with the way things were and didn't feel like messing things up. Wish they left the older boxes alone before HD GUI. I was doing some work with the IP control stuff a while back and they pulled that away too.

HR24-200 currently with 0x5cb.

The last three mornings, the box had been unresponsive to commands from the remote or front panel. The only thing that brings it back to life is to unplug it for 10 minutes. A quick unplug, or RBR puts it into some kind of power cycle loop, where I can hear the exhaust fan kick on for a second, and then off, repeatedly and it never boots up.

Is my HR24 about to die, or is this a bug with the new release?
