how do you force a download on a h21 rec
if you really need one, (and I am not sure you do) you do a red button reset, and on the hello screen you press 02468 on the remote
thanks curt,thats what i needed.
I've got HRxx's but not just an HD receiver, but is there not a menu reset option on the H2x's? Granted there's a difference between an RBR on a receiver versus a DVR, but just wondering if an RBR is really necessary for that.
Nothing but curiosity.
I agree, though, that I'm not sure why a forced download would be necessary.
New receiver (With old software) is only thing I can think of.
It is very, very rare to have to force a download; receivers that see a newer software version in the datastream will automatically download it and reboot themselves. The only time forcing should be necessary is when you are installing a brand new receiver and don't want to wait the 5-10 minutes for the first update to happen.
Yes, there is a menu option for restarting the receiver. It's in the same menu item as a Reset to Factory Defaults and Reset everything.
I'm moving this to the standalone receiver forum.
RBR is far easier than navigating through all the menus
True, and probably fine for a receiver, but not a course of action people with a DVR would want to take in place of going through the menu reset first.
So folks out there with DVRs - if you're reading this, try resetting when necessary using the menu reset option. If everything is unresponsive, then try the RBR.
