Not good advice....... When you 'force' your box to do an update, you will get what is in the stream at that time. If it is experimental software for example, you will get that and have to live with it. Good luck trying to get a CSR to help you with that. Even if you could get it back to your current version, you could very well lose all of your recordings in the process. Try explaing what you did to others in your household if that happens. :eek2: Never force anything to your box unless you know exactly what you are doing and are willing to accept the consequences if something should go wrong. The new HDGUI is not always in the stream, by the way. Doing as you suggest at the very least could be a waste of time, or at worst as I describe above. The best advice you could have given the poster is to just wait for the update. He/she will get it at the time meant for his/her particular box. It will come.
