    I have a H21 with the 10/17/08 0x4084 software installed. It is my understanding that Direct came out with new software on 6/5/09 a few weeks ago. Just how long does it take to receive this update as I want to add a AM21 to this setup?

    You can always reboot your IRD and at the 'hello' screen press 02468 to upgrade to the latest software available.

    I don't think nationally released software for the H2x series supports the AM21 yet. It will, but they (DirecTV) has not yet indicated when.

    I just got the upgrade this morning so they are rolling it out. I had tried to force the upgrade to no avail but it came through this morning.

    Normally, when your receiver is authorized for an update, it will happen (typically in the wee hours). Until then, you will not be able to force it (although you might be able to get it a few hours earlier if you are lucky).
