    Just need to know what the latest software is for the HR24-500. I am still having issues with freezing picture when things like the Guide are pressed, as well as the AM21 OTA recording deletion issue. I see from some posts that users say that a software update helped, but I have not had any update since August. Thanks.

    Thanks. Should I be concerned if neither of my units have that upgrade yet? I live in the Dallas/Ft.Worth Area.

    If you haven't received the latest firmware yet, you can try to force it. It won't take it unless it is supposed to though.

    On the remote, press menu, parental favs and setup, system setup. You should see the firmware version. If it is not the latest, go down to reset. Select restart receiver and press the dash button on the lower left of the remote to confirm.

    The lights on the DVR will shut off. As soon as they come back on, press 0-2-4-6-8 on the remote. The screen will change a couple of times then eventually come up with a search screen. It will find firmware and start downloading. If you get to step 1 of 2, you missed it, let it boot and try it again.

    Let it do its thing and it will restart. Hopefully you pick up the latest run.

    Despite all the issues, there has not been an update for the HR24-500 since August. 0x40d is the current NR for the -500's.

    This morning when I turned on my TV, both my HR24-500 had a picture, but no sound. I removed the card, unplugged both units, and after they rebooted the sound was back, with no problems what so ever.
    I then look at the latest updates, and I had received 0X412 today at 2:27a.m.
    Has any else experienced this?
    Thanks,

    Yes, I also got "412" on both of my "500's". Sure hope it fixes the AM-21 issues.

    Oops, I posted this in the wrong place. Not awake yet.

    Turned on my TV (with the HR24-500) about 6 AM and NO SOUND. Tried everything. Nothing worked. Finally had to RESET and now there's sound. There's something odd about the HR24 family and "sound". Glad I read the posts about the Series Manager. Mine was also messed up and had to rework a bunch of stuff. Haven't had enough coffee yet to discover what ELSE is going on ... yawn.
    P.S. Got OX412 S/W today.

    Interesting that this NR for the HR24-500's seems to be going everywhere at once rather than a staggered East-to-West release. Hope it helps!

    Is there a chance this is the DoD downloads without HSI connection?

    3 HR24-500 w/ AM21s, all of them lost sound and all of them parked at the same OTA channels 5-1 when I turned them on this morning. Restored the sound issues on all of them by switching channels (using up and down channel arrow instead of direct number inputs).

    1 of the HR24-500 though lost the local channels from DirecTV and only shows the OTA channels. Did a refresh from the DirecTV website and lost the OTA channels (but showed DirecTV local channels). Reset OTA settings and now everything is back to normal.

    Oh I didn't even realize I got the new software until I saw this thread and it said I got it today. 0x412. Anyone notice any changes? I noticed a few with the last update back in August but not with this one.

    It hasn't fixed mine. I got one recording last night that stopped after a minute or two and I couldn't even tune to the channel on the AM21. I've been using the AM21 to record almost everything since I got it and this has just started happening in the last few weeks.
