    not at all. You aren't behind.

    They decided before the one got to everyone to send out a different one with more bug fixes.

    And they roll these out slow looking for issues, So it can take months for everyone to get it. ,everyone just wait and enjoy what you have. :)

    No it isn't. These are staggered updates for a reason. Usually when an update with no new major features is released as fast as 0x0740 was (about 3 weeks after 0x725), it means there was likely something wrong with the first update.

    As with ALL previous updates, you'll get them when you're targetted for it. Some areas get them the first day, everyone else, depending on how it went, will get them at random anywhere from a week to over a month later.

    0x0740 is in stream constantly right now. There is no reason those who do not want to wait to force update their receiver. Do a normal menu restart and as soon as the front panel lights come back on press "0 2 4 6 8 enter" quickly and the new firmware should load. If you wait a hair too long after the restart the firmware search/install will not occur.

    Why do you have to have it now? Can you not wait until it comes in a week or two?

    DO NOT attempt this. There are numerous pitfalls, and should be attempted only by those who are semi-expert.

    Also from what I can tell, it's NOT in the stream... so you'd just be wasting your time. Probably best to just wait.

    Well the FW watcher is showing 0x0740 is in the stream for the HR44-200, but 0x06DB for the HR34-700, and both spooling out from the same Ku transponder 30 at 101.

    Now I admit I just forced a download on my HR34-700 to revert to 0x06DB since I had the problem ridden 0x0725 and didn't want to wait any longer for 0x0740 to come my way. But I agree don't try this for the average customer.

    Plus, I get my OTA scanning back for my AM21 :)

    Well temporarily at least until 0x0740 is forced on me ...

    Just because it's in the stream doesn't mean you can download it. If it's a staggered roll out then it will be in the stream only for certain areas; in which case you won't be able to force the download.

    Everyone should just wait. It will happen automatically.

    HR44-500 Report All 20130815-3CD2.

    Saw that the NFL Fantasy TV App is now available, so I tried it out. I got the Fantasy TV App to load, logged in, and then told I had no league. I created a league on NFL.com but after that I could not get the fantasy app to exit, it appeared to be stuck on the screen.
    I pressed the exit button to get rid of all of TV Apps, and then pressed the right arrow key. The screen loaded up with the gray bar on the right side of the screen but none of the TV Apps. I was able to move the cursor to select the fifth box which would be the NFL TV App, but when I did the NFL TV App would not load, everything just disappeared. I pressed the exit key, pressed the right arrow key again, with the same results. I then did a menu reset.
    Now that the system has come up, I am getting the same thing on the NFL TV App: "You do not currently belong to a NFL.com Fantasy Football League..." which I do. Also the only option I can select is sign out at this point. It does not have me an option to chose Standings, Matchups, My Team, or even Minimize. It does look very nice, though.
    This is 7-7:40 PM Central time. WiFi connected.

    Concerning these new TV Apps....Needs to be a way to edit/remove apps that subs don't use, IE: Fantasy,Social..... (as in the old TV Apps). Would like to have individual teams shown....NFL,MLB,NHL...etc(as in the old TV Apps). Would like to have email access(as in the old TV Apps). In the Scoreguide app, under "completed" would prefer the sort to be "newest" to "oldest". I like the new Weather App having more info than previous version. Perhaps more enhancements are in the pipeline........

    That happens when they find something bad in a revision and fix it.
