    No... A reboot, doesn't check for a new software version.
    Unless the unit was told to reboot and check for a software version.

    This is not a "madatory" release, so the machine will ignore it, unless you tell it other wise (via 02468)

    Love those Release Notes. This could be a very big release! It's also clear that D* paid attention to comments made after the Santa release.

    The only way to force an update is to actually force the update. A RBR will only restart the system, as will a power failure. I think that a new install is pretty much the only way to get the wrong software version.

    Earl, et al.

    02468 is entered at the very first screen that appears on reboot, correct?

    If we force the download tonight, will we loose all of our recordings?

    Thanks...appreciate the help.
    Looking forward to the improved HDMI compatability.
    Hopefully, can report 480i works as expected over HDMI as it previously did with the H20.

    Yes. Just press the numbers slowly and deliberately. No need for speed!

    No, all settings and recordings remain just like a regular software update.

    Join the rest of us -- don't even try to correct Earl's spelling. It's part of the ethos of this forum.

    Earl, you make this place rock...thanks.

    I take it that the CC issue isn't addressed in this release?
