When I woke up this AM my receiver had a brief message as to how the program listings would be slightly different.  I went and discovered that overnight my R15-300 DVR had downloaded a new firmware.  I am now running 0x13B4.

 

Is there any significant improvement with this firmware or is it just a maintenance release?

 

Thanks

Pretty sure just "maintenance" but most importantly support for IV retest.  :down:

Install Verification. It means a tech can check the quality of his work through a menu on your receiver.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

To go "deeper" to Stuart's answer., IV is a "program" that DirecTV started a few years ago.  New receivers must pass a certain threshold in order for the receiver to activate, of the threshold is not met, the tech would not be able to activate the receiver and will be forced to fix whatever is necessary to make the receiver pass this test.  on already active receivers,when a tech is on site, they must run IV retest, "retest" presumably because this test was already run when the box was activated for the fist time. This retest makes sure that your dish is aligned properly by making sure that receiver passes the test. the tech needs to pass this test in order to get paid

Received same update on R15-500 Oct 24th. Too bad they didn't update the logos...so many missing or outdated.
