I promise I tried searching for the answer to this, but I'm running out of time and I was hoping someone could give the the skinny on how to do this so I can get Elvis tonight.

Thank you

I do this and it doesn't seem to work. How do I know if the code is accepted?

What brand/model DVR do you have? If it's an HR20 HD DVR, you'll only succeed in downloading the same software you already have. You'll know the code has been accepted if you see the "looking for new software" display during the bootup process.

I need to set my remote to IR for the download. For some reason RF doesn't work.
