    Interesting development. I got home from worked and was disappointed to find I still had 10AF. I figured I'd take a shot and force an update. Was dissapointed again when 10AF started downloading. After hitting 100%, screen when blank for 5 - 10 minutes. Power button did nothing. Hit the red button, and figured what the hell, 02468 again just in case the last update may have gotten corrupted. Low and behold, 10B8 downloaded! Now lets see about this slip vs. skip ;)

    I still have not received the 10B8 update. Is it being sent in batches ? I live in the NorthWest.
    Wonder when I will get it ??

    Again...

    It is not in full release mode yet. It is only available to a small subset, via the 02468 method (there should have been no automatic upgrades).

    What if you can't get the box to reset? I did it (after i turned it on for the first time in 2 months) a few days ago and 02468 worked for 10af, but now that I have 10af I can't get it to do the 02468 to work.

    Is it because the box won't restart?
    Or keying the sequence isn't working?

    Note, Carl6 pointed out that your remote MUST be on the DirecTV selector when entering the code.

    Note #2: Being that you are in NY, you probably won't get 10B8 at this time

    Restart work's fine. Keying the code doesn't trigger anything. My remote is always on the DTV setting. Besides, a guy can dream can't he? I kept my tivo active just in case, atleast until i get 108B. We'll see I guess, even though I want it now.

    Just to make sure. When you reset as soon as the first blue screen appears you hit 02468 on your remote and nothing else, correct? That does not come up with a download screen eventually...it takes a minute or two.

    I type the code at the welcome screen, and it doesn't do anything. I tried waiting, i tried typing it a bunch of times, and any other combination. I get nothing :(

    You can only type it once and only hit those buttons. If you type it again or hit other buttons it won't work. It does take a while and will seem like it's not doing anything, just wait and it will go. Make sure your remote is in the D* mode not AV1, AV2 or TV or it won't work (even if you have put the reciever on AV1 or AV2 you will still need to leave it on D* mode)

    Tried that one as well. We'll see what I can accomplish tonight I guess. Enough wasting bandwith on this though, can anyone verify if series links work correctly now?

    Can you damage the receiver by resetting it alot.I to have tried the 02468 upgrade a few times with 0 results.Is it like the last upgrade,unless its in your area no matter how many times you try, it won't work?

    For some users, resetting the R15 alot is a necessity.

    Why do you think you can damage the receiver by "resetting it alot"?

    No it's basically just rebooting the unit. Shouldn't have any adverse affects (outisde of losing guide data and other settings).
