    I just got a update for my HR24-100 and it's a weird firmware number...0x8000
    Is this okay or did something go south?

    I got a message on my HR24-500 a few minutes ago asking to download data or wait for later...I waited.

    Don't see anything new in the Firmware Watcher either?

    Just had the same thing happen. Went upstairs to do some work, came back and it was in the middle of downloading x8000. What gives?

    In one of the release stickies. I just assumed that the folks on here that play with the software releases before they are pushed nationally would have word of this before I walk into my theater room to see it downloading.
