An HD Gui, would that be listed in the New features, it's NOT a feature.... I suppose it would be listed under Improved though !

You could call it a new feature, or an improvement.

Most likely, however, is that they won't mention it at all to not drive huge participation from the gate, a practice they have used several times. Also possible is a keyword hidden feature, much like the youtube testing, though this may not be possible for something as large as the user interface.

I wondered about that too.....

Too many people come and get the CE ONLY for the NEW stuff ... :eek:

My H24 is up with 04C0 and no sign of new interface.

Four months to October.

Wonk wonk, no joy.. :(

Jimbo I was talking about the actual download. I've never had it take more than a few seconds to actually find the new SW, but it took over 10 minutes to do the actual download/install this time, which is longer than it usually takes for a given update.

I have been waiting till 5 after the hour, but may start waiting a little longer... it could be that they are not implementing it into the stream right away.

How do you do a manual software update on the DirecTv receivers? I have 4 HR24/100 and 1 regular HD receiver.

To clarify jimbos response, reset Ur receiver, either red button, or via the menu, and when the screen reads hello....... Hit 0 2 4 6 8, and make sure to finish before you see the almost there...

However if you read the sticky how too reguarding ce releases you would know this :D

I have tried several times to get my HR24-100 do force a software and no luck. As soon as I reset the receiver I see the Hello screen and I start hitting 0 2 4 6 8 and it does not go to the download. The hello screen comes and goes to quick. Is the 0x4a7 the latest software?

you need to start the 0 2 4 6 8 sequence right when the blue light on the receiver face come back, not once a screen pops up
