    I forced the download yesterday morning using the same procedure without issues. Sometimes I have to try several times for 02468 to take. When I noticed that it hasn't I just do a RBR and start over.

    You've got to be quick on the HR44. Start pressing the moment you see the resolution light come on. Don't wait for a picture on your TV.

    It depends on which HR44 you have. The 500 series is slightly different. After blue lights come on wait one second then press the 02468 as fast as you can.

    Broken record...

    You will get the new software without having to do anything, it's not worth it because you never know what you may end up with.

    There have been a few postings that if you unplug the unit tonight before you go to bed and then plug it back in, in the morning when you get up that searching for new software is one of the first things it will do and download it if it is there.

    But it can be pulled mid download. I've had that happen, saw it, started the download and saw it pulled off.

    I just keep an eye on the DirecTV Firmware Watcher to see what firmware is in the stream. It hasn't failed me yet.

    Some of us find that RF commands from the RC71 don't work well, and so we use an RC 65 in IR mode. Works every time for me. But be sure to check the version number, if you really must eschew Scott's advice.....

    Hi All
    I have a Genie HR44 500 on infrared. I tried all the suggestions without success and it really bugs me. I have downloaded many times in the past but this 500 has a mind of its own. The reason I want this download as quick as possible,is for a CC fix. My hearing is bad so CC is a must .In this case, Scotts option is my only out.

    Sorry about the necessity, man, it can bite, for sure. Were you able to try with an older remote?

    Explain what is failing... "without success" does not give a lot to go.....

    Hi All
    I tried with the HR44 remote and an older one. Without success means no software download.

    Hi All
    SUCCESS
    When restarting the DVR wait for the front panel lights. Everything lights except RES. When RES lights up quickly type in 02468 and the download begins.
    RUNNERFL was correct, I did'nt read his post closely enough. My CC is working very good and the remote response seems normal but time will tell. So thanks everyone, I hope all this will help others.
