    Yeah, I just checked the version tags there, and there ain't no 108F. But it must be something else, as 10AF is already onboard (and I saw it load) as my 'Past' release (4/15). (But the next thing after 10AF is the 10B8!) Hm.....

    Totally confusing. I'd *love* to work in the D* call center, between the lack of info they get and the stuff we tell them. :)

    Looks like I do have 10AF, as Earl, in his infinite wisdom... :) knows.

    I just hooked up a new R15 (this one's to replace a Sony 300/Replay combo in the family room, FYI) and it started with 1044 and in about 15 minutes upgraded to 10AF.

    So, the Original version is just that, and Previous is really the 'current' version. :)

    Called D today since my caller id stopped working yesterday. They said this is one of the issues which will be dealt with in the new software release. I am on the East Coast and was told I should have the update by Tues or Wed? Are they pulling my leg?

    Cedar Park,...
    I think a few of the guys here got together and invented 10b8 and the 30 second slip just to tease the rest of us. :lol: J/K. If it ever gets to Texas, I'm looking forward to testing it. FYI, the skip button on the remote for my Media Center Edition PC works as a 30 second skip. For once, Microsoft did something right. :D

    Sandi... no they are not pulling your leg.

    5/3 is the date that EVERYONE should get the release on (if you haven't gotten it by then

    As for the Caller-id... reboot the unit, and try to delete a couple ofthe caller ID notices.

    I agree I am getting tired to checking to see if I have the upgrade! I want the 30 second slip almost as bad as I want to see the cubs in the world series. The differance is Earl said we should have it by 5/3 and no one has told me when the cubs will win it all! If I don't have it by 5/3 do I have to wait tell next year like I do every year with the cubs?

    Last night I could not watch programs that I have recorded. A different channel appeared when I would click on a title.
    I pushed the reset button. When the receiver came back on a screen showed that new software had been found.
    across the top on the screen were the numbers 1/1/20 on the left and 55/003/10AF/01/0119 on the right.
    Then a screen shot said my computer was being updated. Next was a statement that only a few minutes more. Then the screen went black and the yellow record light came on.
    This sequence of events kept repeating. I tried resetting and unpluging, but to no avail.
    Finally called D and they had me reset again. Nothing. Finally they said they would send another R15.
    Don't know if it will be new or not.

    I had problems with the "10AF" update screwing up my R15 as well. D* solution was they said they would send me out "another one." The CSR "indicated the possibility" that the 10AF update had gotten "corrupted" and "fried" my R15.

    They replaced my "new" R15 that I had purchased in November 2005 with a
    "Factory Refurbished" one.

    The good news is it seems to be working okay except with a freeze up once yesterday. It too has the "10AF" version of the software.

    I, too, am anxiously awaiting the "new" upgrade.
