You can directly tune it, yes, but as stated above, you will not be able to set an SL or future recording for programs on that channel because your receiver thinks it is not authorized.


What happens to make a receiver think it is not authorized, especially like in my case where both of my HRs are affected?

Who knows, but if you resend authorization to the DVRs it will likely clear up.

Well, then you can add a second receiver to your TV and you'll have your PIP. Otherwise, as Jeremy said, you'll have to wait for PIP capable receivers.

Had that for awhile on one, but at $5, now $6, per month cost it was one of the first things I cut when I reviewed my budget.

I think this time around each receiver in the house will get the update at the same time.

The last time I waited for a NR, it was over six weeks before my HR21-100s got updated. I swear, it was the last day. Because after I got it, there were no mo' forum complaints of where is it.

Is the six weeks spread from start to finish normal?

Well two of my TVs support PIP. I definitely going to check that out. It comes in handy during baseball game rain delays.


You can use PIP if your PIP-enabled TV is connected to an OTA antenna. One picture is what you get OTA; the other is from your DirecTV box. I've used it maybe two or three times in four years.

That's not the new feature mentioned in this thread.

Your receiver does not, and will not, support PIP though.

The issue with channel 209 ESPN2 being greyed out seems to have fixed itself on all of my receivers. You might want to check yours now.

I don't think there is really a "normal" other than this time around I believe it is going to be by location .. much like the early days of the downloads. You shouldn't have to wait six weeks this time other than I suppose it could take that long for EVERYONE to get it.

This may have been (and likely was) unrelated to the download.

While my ESPN2 is greyed out (as of late last night), my Sony Movie Channel is not and I don't receive the SMC.

I concur, since the issue (before it resolved itself) showed on receivers which had not received the NR download as well as those that had.

Wow I'm surprised this is making NR after all the debate on the banner and yellow button. Plus on SonicTap channels, if you have new mail, the banner is stuck on the screen instead of artist/title information.

Anyway, Doug if this is NR, why does the firmware monitor still show 459, 457, 450 and 440 for a lot of the different models?

I guess you can't force this download yet?

I am getting auto drops and shuddering when playing back some recordings. Also at times I get very slow response on th guide. Dont know if there is housekeeping going on or if i should try to reboot. I got the NR ON 5/11.

Because it's a staggered rollout.

I'm surprised you think DirecTV cares about our debate.

My ESPN2 is also grayed-out, but I haven't gotten the update -- so must be a separate issue. I can still tune it in just fine, so no biggie.


I've had that happen in the past-What I did was go into Sat Setup and that will reload the Ird when you enter that screen- and bring the guide color back.

All is well with ESPN2 again. I didn't change anything on my end either.

Just forced an update. Downloaded and installed fine. Says 0x459, Tue 4/5, 2:23a. The date is the same as the last release but the release # is different. Wish I could remember it, but it had a letter in it.

Question is did it update ?
What is the correct # for the new release ?

CC is still easily accessible via the yellow button. It will require some relearning which is likely to annoy many of you, but it's not a huge issue, IMHO.



It is if you need the CC's !!!!!
