Woke up this morining and the blue circle was on. Downloaded last night. Checked out lists, guides, network, and Media Share now works!! Thx
Great! Maybe I can get media share to show up on my HR20-700 again. It's been missing for a few weeks and I've tried every trick I know to get it to show up. I had been using it for at least 6 months. It shows on my computer, but it doesn't show up in my HR20-700 menu.Stuart Sweet said:0x0251 is later than 0x024D.
I think sometimes manual recordings for episodes of the same show were not grouping in one folder. The change is to make them group as they should.Lee L said:Kudos for a detailed set of release notes. Thanks DirecTV.
I did notice one thing interesting. It says recurring manual recordings no longer share the same folder. I record Top Gear manually since the guide data is never right for it. I am usually a few epsiodes behind and they are all in the same folder. Is this changing?
If I remember right when I tested this...It just knew I had SWM.SSpectre said:"Improvements in Satellite Setup for SWM"
Can anyone who has the software (I'll check when I get home tonight) elaborate? Will satellite setup allow you to choose an SWM now?
Unfortunately, if your receiver has been "tagged" for 251, that's all you're going to get EVERY time you try and update the software.mar70 said:Both of my HR20-700s were automatically "upgraded" to 0x251 overnight. One of them seems to be working fine, but on the other one I no longer have access to the playlist. Long ago I used to download the cutting edge versions, but I stopped for a reason (I didn't like dealing with the bugs). Now I get sent a "release" version (although I'm on the phone right now with DTV tech support -- and she says the current release version is 0x235). They want me to reformat my drive, but I really don't want to lose my entire library.
Here's the problem:
When I hit the LIST button or when I go to menu and select "My Playlist" nothing shows up on the screen. Interestingly, the software thinks it is in the playlist because other buttons (channel change, record, etc.) don't work until I then hit the EXIT button (or the LIST button again). The channel banner then displays and everything else works normally again. Essentially the system works just fine as an HD receiver, but without access to the playlist it's useless as a DVR.
Tech support had me force a software a download to presumably get back to version 0x235. 0x251 started downloading again to the absolute surprise of the support technician. She said 0x251 isn't supposed to be in the screen. In the meantime, they've "escalated" the ticket, but unless I want to reformat my drive, they didn't leave me with any immediate options. Is there any other way to force a downgrade to an earlier version of the firmware?
Thanks in advance.
Neither my HR20-700 nor HR21-200 got updated last night, but my wife's HR20-100 did. I checked the "Guide Speed" on it, and there is an obvious improvement in speed (so far, sometimes this slows over a period of time).SEAKevin said:I haven't gotten it yet, can someone who has comment on the improved channel change speed? Is it noticeably better?
In System, Info and Test, the Info screen shows the version near the bottom of the first screen of info.Maruuk said:How do you know you got it, the "Showcase" tab has changed?
