I have an HR24-100 and I got an update this morning at 3:24AM. I think it's Ox454. And it was "partially" on. The ring was lit but the power button was off.


Huh. Wonder if that download was just for the 24-100s and affected all of the HRs.

I disagree. DECA works just fine (the only reason I still have 2 DVRs on Gigabit Ethernet is that it would cost me money for the additional DECAs). We'll never know how many DECA customers had this current 'glitch' but everything still worked, or how many Ethernet customers had to reboot. :nono2:

The real question is, what caused the glitch? Is the strange display a designed indicator of something deliberate happening, or did (for example) some error in the guide data cause a 'should not occur' condition (in which case all bets are off as to the status of the box afterwards)?


Somebody should have the correct answer soon.

All my HR24-100's got 0454 last night. This morning circles were all on but not logo or video output lights, and AM21 power lights were off too.

My two HR24-100s showed 0x454 (I think) at 2:24 Pacific. Don't know if my HR21-100 got anything. Did notice. Both 24s had to rebuild their play lists.

That download must have caused all the HRs to reboot. I think I remember something like this happening before.

Still rebooting, only two to go now. I do pay a price for my fleet.....:lol:

I forgot to mention but on two of my 24's, it replaced the CE software that had You Tube support.

I checked 0454, and all my 24's now have You Tube support. :)

So, I guess I'll be doing a lot of rebooting for a couple weeks. Oh, goody.....:nono2:

Running 0x452 on HR24-500's here...not updated last night but they did reboot. As I posted page before tech support stated it maybe was a patch for you tube feature. Makes sense since Doug posted feature now active. YouTube is available...oh goody.

My HR20 rebooted. My HR21 did not. No update on either machine. I've had YouTube access for almost a month on the HR20.

HR20 is connected to Internet; HR21 is not.

Let's move the discussion to the software Issues/Discussion thread since it seems the national rollout may now be complete:
