Certainly, the program guide is a bit snappier and "info" comes up instantly. But I still occasionally see "Info Not Available" when browsing the guide.
It might be faster to change channels, but that's kind of wiped out by having to navigate through the guide to get back to your original channel once it switches to one of the promo channels due the widely reported glitch.
Overall, a good update...

I haven't noticed a speed increase in channel changing, but the EPG is now instant as is the Info on any channel for the entire current time block.
A new bug:
I narrowed down the problem tonight, here it is:
Manually input a channel that is NOT in your current favorites list. I used 103. Now hit the * button to change modes and you will be whisked away via the Magical Dish Transporter to Ch 989! Lucky for me, Laurie was on when it happened.
Here's another way to make it happen: Stay on the channel you chose that is NOT in your favorites list, hit the GUIDE button, change to your favorites list and press escape. Same thing happens and Laurie shows up on my screen.
I called and asked to be forwarded to an Advanced Tech to report a bug and they let me right through.
Please call and report this bug, the CSR I talked to had not heard of it before.
