Important notes regarding this version
This has been a very aggressive CE cycle. And with that, there was a sgnificatnly increased level of risk involved with previous versions. While the risk has been greatly minimized at this point, there still is a small risk.

There is LITTLE risk that your box will become a brick... and if you are having too many issues, role back to the national release version.

So please you must absolutely understand these risks, before forcing this download

CE's Cancelled

CE's were cancelled last night for the H-HR20's.
They were trying to add a few other things to the CE and were not able to impliment them early enough.

Doesn't appear to be on for Saturday January 5th either.

Nope,
As far as I'm concerned, thats GREAT :)

The last CE I d/l'ed the previous week, is working awesome, EVERYTHING is working great, CID is working 90 % of the time... thats up from 0 % and sometimes 20 % :up
No more audio glitches, no stettering when catching up to live programming or after FF to current recording .

This machine is working the best it has in the entire time I've had a D* HD DVR ... :hatsoff: ot the D* crew !

Todd,
If that NR worked well for ya, why worry about it ?
If not then I can see some concern.

There will probably be a new CE next weekend, so you can catch right back up :)

does the dolby digital work now??

Mine always has. DD appears to be broken in the HR21 CE, however. There are problems with media share video in the last two HR20 CEs and the last one for the HR21 (some videos will play for a second or so than it goes back to the menu).
