    Adds messages from Dish. Obviously promoting whatever they are in the mode for. Any other changes spotted?

    Programmable remote keys. :)

    You can now custom program the star or asterisk on the 40.0, the two buttons next to the zero on the 52.0 and the diamond button on the 50.0.

    Well, you got my hopes up with my HWSes.

    Sadly, still U236 and tiny Caller ID.

    4k Joey update now includes Netflix and includes 4k content. The DVR sources icon is changed.

    I received U237 this morning on my HWS but unfortunately the hard drive in that unit is dying. It was stuck on the startup screen this morning. When I rebooted, the update was installed. Replacement HWS is on the way. Maybe we have the same improvements as the H3 with U502.

    I noticed different icon for sources in DVR folder.

    They also FINALLY fixed Home Media. No longer shows video in thumbnail view.

    On the DVR, icon now has a label for. Hopper and a USB symbol. How about using that programming time to fix 4x and Resume Paused Recording Program?

    Sooo- whatcha smokin'?

    Yep. I'm a bit jaded now. How long has the CGUI been "on the street?"

    I guess with an entirely new code base (supposedly), it requires extra effort to add those features. But if you've put in 8X FF, how much more effort to include 4X? And the previous slow speeds?

    Turn everything off. HWS's got S237 last night. :)

    Edited to add: Sorry Voyager6, I just saw your post and didn't mean to echo you.

    When upper mgmt tells them to remove it, the "effort" required to bring it back becomes irrelevant. :(

    (I still miss 4X too)

    One of my H1s received U117 last night. It fixed the Home Media problem of playing a video only in the small window in the upper right corner of the screen. Haven't had a chance to check out anything else. My other H1 is still on U116.

    Go to settings -> Remote Control and its listed under Customizations.

    There is also a new Message Center but no way to get to it unless there's an on screen notification. (Edit: found it under my account)

    This is from HWS U237
