Just try a new download tonight. They're starting a new cycle, FE1.
New cycle? The prior release is FDC, new FE1, that's only 4 release numbers higher, IMHO that's not a new cycle just a lot of different test versions generated in the past week.

It's been FD something since they started with the new interface. Now it's FE something. Sounds like a new cycle, or at least a new series, or a new something, to me.

They use HEX numbering system, which uses 0 though 9 and then A through F, so FDC, FDD, FDE, FDF and then FE0 is how it goes.

FE1 killed mine. I got no logos now and no on demand. It's CLEARMYBOX 2 time for me.

This is why it's called beta software guys, you gonna find lots of issues with it, if this is too much to handle, just load the national release and you'll have an all functional box again.

We know what we're doing and how to get out of it. We're just talking about it. This is the first time I've had these issues with the new interface. And it's not just that simple. I've been on CE software a long time. If I go back to NR I will loose all of my series timers that I've set up since I left the NR.

After d/l the latest CE (I download them all as well.)
My On Demand is working, at least channel 1000 shows up AND I do have the Posters this week, never did show up last week, but the OD worked.
In the Guide, I have the banner for the show your watching next to the description and LIVE TV, but so far I don't have the Channel logos (which I normally always have.)
Personally, I don't care about the Logos, I think it looks better without them as its less cluttered.

Left home at around 11AM with no logos, got home at around 9PM and had logos. I immediately noticed a lag when scrolling in the guide with the logos there. Also the DirecTV logo on the screen saver is huge compared to what it was.

What am I missing here, what's the trick to set up a series to record, and only have it record on a single channel? Discovery Networks is now airing Evil Things on both TLC and Destination America, and I'm getting recordings for both, I'd like only TLC since that's where new episodes air first.

You can't. That's a "feature" of the new guide. You can only set recordings for all channels.
