    Do your timers work correctly? The only thing I can imagine is that your clock is off.

    :) No, there is something odd in the "date" of the updates.
    It has been that way since day one.

    My date was upated correctly for the February update, but remained the same for the March and 10B8 update (02/21/2006).

    I have had my Directv and R15 since the end of February and of course have had the same issues as many of you. I had the new upgrade in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Last night I was recording American Idol and Lost - when I went to watch Lost later history stated partial recording (46 minutes). Ok I can handle partlial but unfortunately it is just a blank screen. It is in there as being recorded - is there any way to resurrect it? Thanks.

    Sue :confused:

    Once a recording is messed up, there's little hope...

    The problem occured durring the recording, it lost signal, glitched, etc.

    The good news is it was a stinking repeat of the "re-cap" episode, so you didn't miss anything new!!!

    Still haven't had the pleasure of getting the update here (miami, fl)
    I think I resetted my R15 12 times since last night.
    At least it's good for the system...
    Still wish I had that update though :(

    I was going to say that if you didn't get it with a force, don't bother trying again until the next day. But, thinking back, I tried last week and didn't get 10B8, then it froze booting up so I tried again and got it.

    To be honest, I've only updated it once (by force) since I got it and that was when 10AF came out, since I didn't know about this update process. Since I'm also very new to this whole DVR/Tivo thing, I don't know how my R15 would update automatically... I think I read on the forums somewhere that the R15 only updates manually?

    The R15 will most certainly update automatically, when it is "told" by DirecTV that a update is ready for it.

    Does it need to be in standby mode? To be honest I never turn off my dvr... It's always on (I'm not sure but this is probably bad for it..)

    thanks for the info thus far

    No it doesn't need to be in standby mode. The unit will reboot by itself in the middle of the night once the update has been received.

    I don't put the DVR in standby either. It doesn't harm the DVR as far as I know.

    Thanks Wohlfie - I can now delete with peace of mind. Why they do these recaps - Desperate Housewives too - It would seem that most folks detest them? Just proves to me that they are stumped for a storyline. Maybe I need to get a life or read a good book!! Thanks.

    Sue;)

    I think they are trying to get new viewers or get nwer viewers caught up. Good thing is we don't lose shows to it, the bad news is we have to wait another week.

    It's now April 30. Am I the only one in the US without the new upgrade?
    Looking forward to the 30-second 'slip'.

    I am about to force an update (haven't tried in about two days.) I will let you know if you are the only one.

    Nope, you and I are the only ones. Re-downloading 10AF. -sigh- :(
