Upon backing out of a completed check-switch, the receiver will reboot, and then update if it's been spooled.
You can set the Inactivity Standby to Disable but the only way to defeat the Updates is to schedule it at the same time as an Auto-Tune or Recording. If you want to get a guide update, perform a check switch. I don't think it checks for firmware downloads at that time. My receiver is never turned off. As for power outages, you should have UPS protection anyway.

Also, never check switch force to reboot DVR. You're better stay with facts, not rumors.
As to the facts - last night Dish added to the group of DVR new range and perhaps your device fall into. Ask RandallA.

That's not a rumor, but pure fact. Better if you cite your source.
Trust me, I'd prefer to cite the source, but if I did, I'd probably be banned here!
I called it a rumor because, AFAIK, no one had reported actually receiving the download at the time of the post. I know that the source in question (RandallA) is reliable.
I'm really not trying to pick a fight, and from now on I'll just stay away from these software update threads. Sorry if I ruffled any feathers.

If people are receiving it it is time for release notes ... in the appropriate forums.
I wouldn't wait for that if taking in account new card deployment and Dish secrecy about encryption tidbits.
