This is a summary of the keyword search power tricks from the programmers (for
reference):

Simple Grammar:
[{AANY/AALL} <tokens>] [{NNOT} <tokens>] [TTITLE/NNAME] [{CCHAN} <number> [<number>]]

BOOLEAN LOGIC:

“AALL” => (this is the AND boolean operation) all the following words must be contained within the program (title, about, name, episode, category) in any order “AANY” => (this is the OR boolean operation) at least one of the following words must be contained within the program (title, about, name, episode,
category)
“NNOT” => (this is the NOT boolean operation) exclude any programs that contain any of the following words in that search string

The AANY and AALL keywords should appear as the first word in the search string in order to set the search mode.
The NNOT keyword may appear anywhere and all words following the NNOT keyword are considered words to exclude.

SCOPE FILTERS:

TTITLE => Limits the search to only the Title field of the Programs NNAME => Limits the search to only the Name field (e.g. Actors, Director) of the Program CCHAN => Limits the search to only the specified channel range (example CCHAN 500 510, or CCHAN 500 for a single channel)

Some sample queries are:

AALL racing car NNOT nascar => finds all shows containing “car” and “racing”
(any order/position), but excludes the show if “nascar” appears
AALL hanks tom NNOT vinci => finds all tom hanks movies/shows but excludes
the movie if the word “vinci” appears (e.g. da vinci code)
AALL hanks tom NNAME => finds all tom hanks programs where he is an actor
AALL hdtv football => finds all high definition football
programs (note you can include category labels in the search and “HDTV” is same as “High-Def”)
AANY usc ucla NNOT football => finds all usc and ucla events/shows, but
excludes football events
oakland raiders NNOT miami => finds exact match for “oakland raiders” but
excludes show if “miami” appears (e.g. excludes games with Miami Dolphins) AANY lakers clippers CCHAN 700 730 => finds all games with the Lakers or Clippers on only channels 700 through 730 AANY lakers clippers CCHAN 710 => finds all games with the Lakers or Clippers on only channel 710

I'm in the same boat. Looks like there were some problems on the software for the HR21 last night. Did the HR20 CE do better?

No problems at all with the HR20 version, at least I have not seen any yet...

Stable as a ROCK as it has been for quite awhile now.
The Caller Id has even been working the last few weeks (it had been a hit and miss)

One thing with ths CE, that I have not seen lately, is that when I press the "active" button to view my local weather, is that it no longer retains my
local data or favorite cities list. It defaults to the weather at DirecTV's home:(
Of course you can reset the data, but this can get to be a chore with weekly
C/E's:D...wonder why they went backwards with this by not retaining your
data.....maybe they are previewing a National version??

It isn't this CE that caused it but something else since every receiver I have has stopped storing the zip code and my cities list (ZIP code for wether active app changed on it's own - DBSTalk.Com). I sent an e-mail to D* about this you might want to send one also.

Unfortunate timing. Got hit with an ice storm during the download. The download somehow made it but then I couldn't get a decent signal. Had me a little worried that there was something wrong with the CE until I realized my dish was covered in ice. But since the ice melted all looks good.

Weird bug I found

Okay downloaded CE release and all was fine. Then I started watching one of the Showtime channels. After that I lost all the sound on all non DD channels. Tried a reset and changing inputs and they didn't work. I have a HR20-100 using HDMI going to a Phillips PFL47 LCD TV. The next day I went back to 01FE and problem was gone.
Oh I forgot to mention when I woke up the next morning and cut on TV all sound was restored, but the minute I went back to Showtime, I lost sound on all non DD channels again. It was then I went back to the national firmware.
