    Grrrr.

    I was so excited. I've done 02468 twice so far. It has downloaded "new software" both times, but I stay stuck at 109a. Anyone besides Wolf and Earl have 109f yet?
    I'm posting this not only to get help for myself, but also as a one-stop shop for everyone who's going to wzake up tomorrow, see the new release news, and try to update. Hopefully by then everyone will be able to get help here, and we can cut down on the clutter of 100 threads like this.

    So, anyone know the secret to getting it?

    Thanks,

    Ricky

    I went through this same drill with a D10 box before, I was seeing reports that a new version was available but the 02468 could not get it. One day by surprise my box got the download automatically.

    I still have the 109A also...

    Ricky, A little "early morning humor" :lol: ...........put it in "standby", go to bed and hopefully wake in the morning to find that it "snuck in" while you were asleep. :D It works like a charm sometimes. :rolleyes:

    It is a gradual push (as most DirecTV releases are)... Being that your box is so new... it may get it early or late.

    I would expect that probably in the next 72 hours or so... most users should get it.

    No one will get it. Due to my complete inability to remember crap I was wrong on the update I received. The unit had 108f and I get 109a. I had "f"s on the brain.

    My fault!!!! Sorry!!!!!

    So there isn't a new software spooling?

    Maybe someone should edit all the 'after 109f bug' post?

    How are there release notes for 109f? Is the software ready to go, but not spooling yet or are these being made up?

    Or does this tell us that Earl has the beta version already? ;)

    I don't have a beta... but I do have 109f...
    109f is a public release...

    Maybe they just flipped the switch and since I had one of the first units, I got it first... 109f is on it's way... Seriously.

    My R15 was just installed yesterday, and shortly after the installer left it did an upgrade. But it was to 109A. I've tried the 02468 trick a couple times but it doesn't seem to do anything.

    I guess I'll just wait & see...

    Before trying the 02468 trick..

    Check your system info page, it should say if a future upgrade is available.
    As if it hasn't completely downloaded to your system.....

    Make sure you only hit 02468 once if you type it again or hit any other buttons it won't work.

    I did check that, didn't say a future upgrade was ready (and still doesn't after doing 02468)...

    02468, basicly just initiates the installation of an upgraded, when it is already on your system.

    It is not "downloading" it from the stream as it updates... It would have to already be downloaded to your system before it will install...

    Is anyone remembering that the two flavors of the R15, the -300, and -500 may not on the same firmware revisions? Guys, check your units and make sure that you arent trying to get an update that may not exist based on your manufacturers code for teh R15....

    Good point.... as far as I know.. It is the Humax (500) code going out first, followed by the Philips (300) versions.
