    HR20p is the multi-thousand dollar version of the HR20.

    The one that is intended for the very high end home theater systems.

    Rack Mounted, with 4" LCD screen in the unit, plus a variety of other features.

    Forced a download here in San Francisco. Still 10AF. Yada Yada Yada. Maybe the Easter Bunny will bring me the 10B8 download.

    I didnt see anyone mention that forcing an upgrade wipes all your guide data when it resets and clears your to do list.

    So if you dont get the newest update your guide data is minimal for hours/days and your to do list is next to useless to verfiy recordings for a while. Then its going to clear again when you actually do get the update.

    A new twist on the 02468 upgrade process...

    I have two R15's. I have set one of them up to use the alternate "AV1/AV2" code rather than the DTV code.

    When I tried to force the update on that unit, it did not work. After 2 attempts, I decided to try and use the DTV position rather than the AV1 position. Bingo! New software found and downloaded.

    And, after all 3 resets, including getting the new software, once the unit was back up and running, it was still properly configured to use the AV1 remote.

    So when you do a reset, during the very initial phases of the reboot (when the blue screen first appears), the R15 is using default configuration for the remote, but restores custom configuration once it completes start-up.

    Carl... GREAT FIND..

    That is a tidbit that doesn't mean much, but one that can save a LOT of frustration.
