Come on DirecTV it's been almost a full week since introducing the 0x104, let's give the rest of the US an opportunity to get OTA, and not just a special few.

As someone who's had zero problems with OTA and honestly didn't need it (LA locals are pretty well represented) I'm with you. It would be great if other markets without sufficient HD coverage could get this helpful (and so far non-harmful) upgrade.

Yeah this is worse than not knowing when the OTA update was going to be released. Now that it is released, I WANT IT NOW!!!

Is it safe to say that you have 0x104?? Out of curiosity, were you have any issues with your HR20 prior to the update, and have any of them been eliminated??

Thanks

I am running 0x104 with OTA running on it. I have had some issues along the way since the original installation (version 0xCC) -- the rare unwatchable, a missed recording or two, occasional need to reset, but very minor compared to some in this forum. This update didn't make my HR20 more or less stable. I did have to red-button-reset yesterday for the first time since early November, but everything was fine after that.

I've had no problem watching, trick-playing, or recording OTA, sat feeds, or a mixture since getting it set up Friday.

My only consistent issues are slow channel changes (slower then <0xF6) and "Pinky".

Pinky Lives
interesting pinky observation last night. Was doing 30 second slip and noticed it went pink low and behold the slip "slipped' through all the commercials directly to the show, could never make it do it again but thats the feature I most miss is skip all those damn commercials and gte back to the show

I've had pinky show up on pretty much every icon. I once had a pinky pause and thought about getting a picture of it. My laziness and not desiring to irritate my wife nixed that plan, though.

I don't get why the pinky thing is such a big deal to folks. How minor.

But I agree--let's have more OTA testers. ;)

Pinky is not a big deal, but its just so minor and I would assume easy from a progamming persective, why not fix it.

Its an issue of polish...just makes the product seem unfinished...kind of like buying a new Acura w/ a ding in the door already...

Glad to hear this update is, so far, working well...I will not use OTA (no antennas in my assoc), but look forward to more stability....

Like others, I have been stable for weeks...only one red button reset in past 3-4 weeks...hopefully this update keeps it up.

I want the Manual "Bug*" fix more than OTA.

* Calling it a bug is misleading. It is not a bug, it flat doesn't work.:(
Tom DeMarco and a few other prominent software theorists recommend that companies stop referring them as "bugs". Too cute. They suggest calling them defects.

Cheers,
Tom
