    It normally starts in the LA market. Then west coast and moves east.

    It some times takes a couple of days for everyone to receive it and I have seen it take as long as 4 to 5 weeks for everyone to get it.

    My R15-100 updated itself two days ago. I've forced two updates on my R15-500 and still have 114a. Location: Central California coast

    Don't force the updates... (won't do you any good).

    Your system will usually download the update with in 45 minutes of the authorization being granted to your box.

    Same model (i.e., -100, -300, -500)?

    Also, the rollout is being done based on access card numbers, so it is possible that two otherwise identical units one might get an update and the other not.

    You don't for this one. Not until it goes national instead of staggered.

    So if I understand it right it is not by region but access card number so if I just had my r15 installed last week I will probably be one of the last ones to get the update?

    D* can probably sort the access card numbers by region but errors creep into their database. And having two receivers installed on the same day is no guarantee their numbers are consecutive.

    Their customer service will get calls as to why the UI is now white, yada yada, yada. So a staggered roll-out will ease the CSR load.

    Now, if after 3 months I don't get it and others in my area report they have, then I'll need to give D* a call.

    You can't force it on this one, but to force an update, you hit the reset button, when it displays "HELLO" on the screen, press 0,2,4,6,8 on your remote.

    Are you sure it is 0x115E ? As that is the CE version of the software, and is not in the data stream right now.

    Restart it. That happened to me with NR 109C all the time and a reboot fixed it.

    We have a R15-300 and received the update on Thu night. The only problem is now the Caller-ID does not work. The messages are turned on and I did a reset but still not working.
