No problemo! Some want to know why—or why not—something works; others care about the result only.

I am wondering if some "fixes" seem to have a result that's favorable, due solely to the box being rebooted. Certainly there are precedents in the computer world where a fix— a panacea in some eyes— relied on the reboot, not the involved steps prior.


True, but reboots don't help at all in some instances. For instance, the 24-500s occasionally "bog down" for no apparent reason. Rebooting doesn't help that at all. Flushing the Guide data does. Again, I have no idea why.

P Smith and I have argued for a long time about troubleshooting. He's of a mind to tear apart everything to find out "why" and I can't disagree with that in the right setting. Someone's gotta do that. My troubleshooting technique is just to fix the problem and go on to the next problem. Our backgrounds are different and that's why our methods differ so much.

Forced a download of 62C yesterday and now my guide will respond again. In the last couple of weeks it had become all but useless.

Its never a bad idea to do a periodic menu restart as well.....I restart all my HR's literally every Saturday or Sunday night before I go to sleep as long as I have no pending programs.

How do I force a download. My boxes are on a code from June.

Usually new NR is a phased rollout,it happens when it happens. To force a reboot, perform a menu restart receiver, and when the blue lights first come back on, type 0-2-4-6-8

Surprisingly, I got the update on my four 20-700s a couple days ago. None of my 24s were upgraded.
