    Anybody else get their H20-600 software upgrade last night? Version 2024 I think it said. The guide is really fast now. Still a double tap though.

    I just got an update today. Seems there are a couple of new transponders, the signal strength has increased, now getting something off 99 "b", instead of n/a on network 14 & 15. The menu is lightening fast with some added sound/display options, and there does not seem to be any drawbacks.

    0x2024 was the CE test version of a few weeks ago. Did not know it had started rolling out nationally yet.

    I, too have the H20-600 and have been watching the DBS forum for upgrade info. My receiver was off for the last two nights. If I leave it on throughout the day and all night, will the upgrade eventually come through on its own??? Or, should I attempt to reset the receiver to manually force an upgrade??? Many thanks for any assistance.

    It will eventually upgrade on it's own.

    I'll get the release notes up soon.

    It does not matter if the unit is on or in standby. When the update is pushed to your area you receiver will get it as long as it is plugged in and connected to a SAT line. The update is being rolled out and has not made it to everyone yet.

    Can this release be forced or do we have to wait for the rollout to hit our areas?

    Since it is a national rollout release you have to wait until it is released in your area.

    Thanks . . . . assuming no problems come up, do you know the average roll out time - i.e. how long does a full roll out take?

    My "main" H20 got the update at 0252 hrs., onTues, 8-7-07. I'm also going to have my secondary H20 hooked up indeed hopes of getting it tonight.

    However, right now it's going through the endless cycle of reboots. :confused:

    Any thoughts on this?

    Update...

    0x02024 loaded on the second H20 last night around 2252 hrs., last night.
