    Forcing a software download is usually not necessary. Your receiver will automatically download the latest software. Are you having any issues?

    Not sure what those errors mean, but forcing a download will do nothing to solve the problem.

    Error 45-xxx means that your DVR is not properly receiving Guide Data. This is often due to poor reception of the 119ºW satellite (if you have a SlimLine 5-LNB dish), or having the wrong dish type set (set to "SlimLine5" when you actually have a "SlimLine3" dish).

    Error 42-xxx is also signal related. Check your signal readings on BOTH tuners. One might be weaker than the other, or missing key satellites.

    The Error 12-xxx might be the clincher here. This usually means that you have a defective DVR tuner. But check the signals first.
