    I was hoping that the 'checking for updates' that happens every time you start the program would update. It's didn't.

    And I just realized in checking 'About' that I've been running 5708!! And it lists it as 'No updates available.'

    It's been working so well, I'm afraid to touch it - plus I've always needed a new key.

    This version is not yet up on DIRECTV's website .. Hoping to get a little testing done here to verify it still functions the same as before. The only change is IE9 Activation support.

    Working fine on Windows 7 64bit. Uninstalled old version fine, installed itself and self updated on the first start. Plays fine on all my receivers including prompting for parental code on one receiver.

    I wish it would store the key in the registry so that you didn't have to hunt it down each time. VMware Desktop does this for all of their upgrades and it works great.

    IE9 installs correctly. When running the app, it is sure wierd to have to look at each receiver seperately for programs to play. Been running MRV for so long it appears so backwards that MRV isnt available.

    Yeah, that would be nice. I keep mine in a handy text file where I keep the downloads so it's not hard to find.

    I once needed a new key, but that was when I went from XP to Win 7. Otherwise I've used the same key over numerous installations.

    And I bet you haven't had to change out motherboards either. ;) :lol:
    The only keys I lost were with motherboard changes.
    I needed to use a second on this PC when I "added" Win7 64 for a second OS to my Win7 32.
    I have used the same key for XP to Vista, to Win7 32, with maybe twenty update versions along the way too.

    For some reason, I've needed a new key on every update. Lots of email addresses!

    I wish it carried the key over from the last install. Good thing I am a saver.

    Have you tried a reboot? There may be some OS updates waiting on a reboot to complete installation. . .

    Going to do that right now... and if it is the case, it should have be listed in the installs last window before you click "finish".
