    Both of my HR-21's were unresponsive. Showed picture, but remote wouldn't work for anything. RBR on both, they both came up, and downloaded/installed 0x0290. Tried 1080p, but it looks like my Samsung doesn't support 1080p/24 (or at least doesn't report it correctly).

    They are so far after reboot. I have been reading through posts to see what issues people are facing but there are so many posts I decided to start at the last page and work my way back.

    Can you be a little more specific.

    These lockups are different from those lockups how.....?

    Both of my HR20-100s are working fine. No evidence that they rebooted.

    I totally get where you're coming from. They send out this mass email saying they apologize for their error then proceed to mess up again.
    I know a lot of people that frequent this board are IT folks.
    Would you ever do something like this in a production environment without testing until it was fool-proof?

    This is just crazy. I know it's just tv but if I bring down a router and my boss can't get to youtube, it's still my ass.

    The only other major issues seems to be with resolutions... which is resolved by rerunning the satellite setup...

    6:44 p.m. HR20-100
    7:19 p.m. HR21-200/AM21
    9:19 p.m. HR20-700

    After auto-rebooting at 5:17 p.m. or so, and NOT downloading new software, the above have taken place. All times central. I was watching a recording on teh HR20-700, when I got the "data download" message, asking me if it was OK, and I said yes.

    The other two receivers have 0290, so I'm assuming the HR20-700 will be updated similarly. Does anyone know why this is being done?

    Perhaps the auto-reboot was done to make sure the receivers weren't hung, and would be "update ready", and then based on timing that only D* understands, the updates followed? That's my guess, and I'm sticking to it.:)

    No lockups here. But all three systems rebooted sometime today probably after 4pm ET and before 6:30 when I got home.

    No software update that I can see in the INFO screen.

    *sigh* I got not only the reboot, but a completely wiped HD (no big loss, only 2 shows on there), a completely wiped history, AND a completely wiped ToDo/Prioritization list.

    THAT was a first (and I hope, a last...). Frustrating, to say the least.

    Nobody knows for sure, but I think D* is well aware that this took place during prime time and they wouldn't have done it unless they thought it was absolutely necessary (i.e. to reduce further lockups). And nobody knows for sure if last weeks issue and this weeks were the exact same, so maybe it was resolved last week.

    My HR20 got the software and is working fine. I was watching something on the HR21 when it wanted to update and I told it to wait. Is there a way I can tell it to do the update now since I'm not watching or recording anything?

    0x290 just loaded on our HR20-100 at 10:21 PM ET. All programs saved today are still in list; tried one and it played. No "oops" issues seen at this point.

    So, everything's working again now on my HR20-100. I see the 1080p choice in the HDTV setup menu. When I activate it, the picture goes all funky and unstable. My equipment (Pioneer Elite Pro-1150HD plasma and Denon AVR-2807 receiver) supports 1080p 24/60 Hz, so I wonder what's up??
