Same here, went back to 1037, and so far, i cant remember if i had 1036 or 37, last, but i had logos before going to 1071-73. Currently with 1037 no logos, looks like the posters are all there, but no logos. Will see if they appear later.

Logos are back on 1037, waiting for On-demand to return, but this is a good sign. Something is a miss with 71 - 73, I will update at the next CE and see if they stick after assuming something was addressed, no real idea as they (DTV) don't share change info.

I just got back home, and i have logos now too.
Well I got the posters back and logos after a few hours but after a day no on-demand. I did a clear this morning and after a few hours on-demand returned. So I am on 0X1037 and all is working fine, logos, poster and On-demand. I really could careless about the logos but not having the on-demand was a drag as I use it to rewind shows I missed.

Well the new guide drought is over here in northern Colorado. After 4 months of waiting, my HR 44 was pushed to 0X1037 early this morning.
Nice look and feel but it will take some relearning of the service menu.

All logos, posters and on demand seem to be present. The only missing item is the caller ID log but I’m in the last 10% of those that still have land line phones.

I don't believe CID is available any longer .... to our displeasure ... (on the hr54 and HS17)

I second that, I think it's gone.

0X1037 is still in the stream daily M-F 3 AM to 7 PM ET, no real need for anyone to wait over forcing the update but some are holdouts on the old GUI. After having the new GUI for a while I am used to it and actually find it better overall, just wish they would make the font larger but after many updates I am guessing that's never coming.

I think the Guide is fine, its the Menu that I don't like.

I honestly like it all, like said above, to make it great for me, would be bigger bold text
Agreed on all counts, a few months ago, I rolled it back to the old GUI to give it a compare and actually preferred the new GUI, but as all have said countless times, there are just a few tweaks keeping it from being well received. So I will leave it at that and hope one day DTV makes those tweaks but if I had one wish it would be FONT size first, the reset second.

Me too....more of us than people think. With land lines you can actually hear/understand the person on the other end! Hate it when someone calls me with their cell phone.

same can be said about a static ridden land line, but in the end it's really up to the handset and 75% of the bluetooth headsets or car audio out there suck along with poor speakerphones. These days I usually have to say to the caller, please get closer to the mic or please take me off speakerphone. Maybe even hey, call me later when you are out of the car :) But this is off topic and has no bearing on the new GUI, my HR doesn't even have an Analog port on it, so those days are long over which is why I am sure they removed it from the code. However that doesn't stop someone from calling you or presenting caller ID on the handset, just not the convince on the TV. One last thought, the latest cell phones have improved greatly on sound quality and the network, but when paired with a $25 BT headset or a 5.00 made earbud set, you get crap. I digress...

In this case you get what you pay for ...
That doesn't always happen.
