    No, I have not received it. My HWS is still on version S545. Also, I have not seen the pop-up that says I will be getting the "upgrade" soon. I hope that I never get the forced CUI, but I know I am probably dreaming.

    Is there anything that anybody thinks is BETTER in the CUI, over the previous software?

    WOW, manatory download date must of slipped again. Oh well, I have learned to get around in the new CUI. I will be more ready for the H3 when I get her.

    Hmmm. Might pick some up. Can't remember when I last had Michelob. Mostly Stella and Yeungling.

    You might try my favorite, Andechs Dopplebock Dunkel. I see that Wine Styles, Chantilly, VA carries it. Tel: (703) 327-9463..... It's $5 a 16.9 oz bottle but it's really worth it.

    I allowed my Hooper 2000's to update a couple of weeks ago. I now have a Hopper 3 and a 4K Joey.
    The H2K was agonizingly slow.

    Sent from my GT-N8013 using the SatelliteGuys app!

    Here are the things I miss in the new HWS CUI. If anyone knows where any of these things are, please let me know.

    Edit Event option in the scheduled timers listing.
    Last date and time remote and receiver was backed up.
    Option to list recordings by episode number in the EHD.
    DVR temps listing.
    Caller ID History
    Satellite identifier in the channel info screen.
    OTA signal strength in the channel info screen.
    Sort timers by Title option instead of priority.

    I got the pop-up this morning, I am being forced to CUI on 6/15, maybe it will slip.

    The Caller ID history is under Menu / My Account / Caller ID History and you can sort timers by title but it doesn't stick. At least that's 2 fewer things to miss. :)

    You can find your OTA strength but you have to go to settings-OTA Antenna-Go left highlight your list then go down your list to the channel you want to check, when you get to the channel you want to check wait it will take a few seconds to kick in for the reading. I know its a hassle but you asked.:D

    I know. It was just nice to see the strength in the info when ever I went there. I have gotten too lazy. LOL :eek:
