Direct tv guide is not updating

Over all, this interface is fantastic for me and a huge improvement over the older version.

Last week, Direc TV subscribers (including me) received an email letting them know that a new guide interface would be rolling out in the future, but the email did not say when users should expect it.If you try to follow these instructions at any other time than the times listed, your receiver will “update,” but instead of the new interface, it will just be the current national release of the old version.The time that you can download the new update is between PM and AM EST, on Friday and Saturday nights.It was a tease, showing awesome new features and a slick new interface for your HD TV, but with no information about when you would actually be getting the interface on your receiver.Luckily, a little Google searching on my part discovered a way that you can pre-load the new software onto your receiver, which I did.With the addition of TV apps, you can use your receiver to do things like browse Facebook, watch You Tube videos, see scores of your favorite games, and even check the weather and the stock market right on your TV. If you are as excited as I was to hear about this new interface and want to get it as soon as possible, follow along.

The process of manually updating your receiver to this new interface is relatively easy, but there are a few things you need to be aware of.

Once the LEDs on the front of the receiver come back on the first blue screen is displayed on your TV, whichever occurs first, press the following buttons on your remote, in this order, with about a half second to a second in between each press: 0 2 4 6 8.

Press the number keys deliberately, allowing about a half second per press. Make sure that you press the five numbers, one at a time, and nothing else.

After a few minutes, once your receiver boots, you should be taken to a blue screen that announces and goes through the 10-20 minute download and verification cycle.

At this point you just need to wait it out, and do not touch anything.

For more, here’s a video from Direc TV going over the enhancements.
