Off the top of my head I can't name 1 improvement in the guide/sw in this decade, that's helped me. . as a matter of fact Their so called "improvements" have cost me $$, in the need to buy equipment and the electricity to run them.

my 2¢..lol

I wish they’d quit screwing around whatever they are, and put the logos back in the dang guide!!! Others may not, but i sure do, i dont have the best eyes, and the help me easily tell channels I’m looking for

They have to make changes, whatever they do, there is a side that doesn't like it.
As for the Logos, good luck ....
Personally, I think it takes up too much room to make them legidible and then you can't read the channel number.

I grabbed the 11a3 last night.... this morning I noticed there was a horrible delay in button commands. pausing,ff, rw, menu, everything had a 3 second delay or more. coming from the 114b which worked flawlessly for me I was disappointed the new software didn't work out. I was forced to revert back to 1104 this morning and so far everything works as expected. no command delays at all. I will go to 114b if and when I see it in the stream again. I have the hr54-700.

I believe 11a3 was a CE....Weekend nights are when CE's are usually released. Best to avoid CE's unless your willing to deal with some issues....Weekday nights are when NR's are in the stream...usually...

I have seen other report that as well, however, I have not had any of those issues with this latest software ... yet.
However, I am not using a D* remote either.

The last several CEs have been very laggy. It's obnoxious. You've been lucky to be on NR, Jimbo.

Not on NR any longer.
I picked up last weekends CE, working fine so far, but like I said before, everyones set ups are a bit different and I think that may make the CE work differently ... I have a HR44 and no clients ... my HR24 is no longer on a CE.

I downloaded 0x11a3 on Friday night.
Other than no On Demand, which I don't use, everything is working great.
Yeah ...

But the problem I usually experience is when the VOD function is out after a firmware update. Chances are the DIRECTV app connectivity to the remote DVR feature of the Genie is going to be out too.

I'm in the same boat ....
I use Netflix and Amazon Prime for my On Demand needs.

My D* On Demand was not working, however I haven't tried it again since Sat.

I just checked and my On Demand and it is working fine.

No it did not. What happened was because the receiver could only deliver one type of guide at a time, to meet the HDCP copy protection requirements, the output from the box over a;ll outputs was switched off if you had a non-HDCP compliant device connected to the HDMI outputs. With most TVs, that meant the HDMI-connected TV could not be on standby.
Using the component output solved this issue because you could still use the HD guide since component does not have HDCP.

I just pushed 114B for my HR54/700. It’s a weeknight, so is that the latest NR? It’s 6:20am EST here.
