    Is there any way to force the 921 to download the L145 software again? I think the guide display rountines have become corrupted and re-booting does not fix the problem, but a re-download and re-install of the software would be worth a try.

    Turn the power off on the unit from the front panel. Leave the unit plugged in but powered down for 15 minutes.

    That should do it.

    Take a look at your sys info screen to confirm the software update.

    If the software is already downloaded to the receiver, there is almost certainly no way to force the receiver to re-download the exact same software, unless it senses some sort of internal failure (CRC corruption, etc.). Other than provoking such a failure, your options are probably pretty limited.

    You could always wait until the next software version (the next one after L145) comes out; that will obviously cause a new download.

    He was asking about re-downloading the same software. Your method won't accomplish that.

    Sorry didn't see that all important word "again".
