    cannot get 02468 to work on this unit, I had not tried since the unit was replaced due to wrong ones being sent so have no idea if its been like this all along or not.
    it did not get its pushes this weekend so I tried a pull, will never go to download screen.
    no rf being used and remote is in correct position, but other positions were tried.

    Same here. My 200 won't pull anything. It's stuck on 0x3b3 pushed on May 20.

    as said in other thread reset everything was done.

    can play with buttons and guess at stuff all day long, bottom line is mine never works for more then a short time at anything.

    This may sound like a silly question...but what model remote do you have?

    The reason I ask...is I know of someone who recently got an HR24 installed and they (at first) pulled an R24 remote fresh out of the box. The installer then gave him an RC65X...telling him...."that other model isn't the right one for the HR24".

    There's that whole IR/RF thingy that may also be coming into play...VOS is the guru on that.

    ...just trying to look at any last possibility to help...may be grasping at straws.

    Guys, send me your access card numbers so I can make sure you are on the list to get the downloads ..

    David, in your case, that seems weird .. I do know the HR24s are really fast and it's easy to miss it if you go too slow.

    Thanks,
    Doug

    using stock remote that came with hr24.
    no rf at all on any box.

    tried starting code at multiple points during start, nothing works.
    its been getting pushes all along, not that they actually helped anything on this 1 box, but this weekend it did not.

    David,

    In the past I was worried about this as well. As some of you in the chat rooms might remember, I was NEVER able to PULL when most of us were giving up and moving on.

    Not too terribly long ago, I got concerned about this, so I TRIED and TRIED to get it to work. I kept failing, but eventually I got it to go the download screen. Obviously, nothing was there for it to PULL, but I at least found out that I could do so, which as you can imagine, eased my fears considerably.

    The bad thing is, it's MUCH harder to do than with previous HRs, but now that I've done it once, I feel like I can repeat it when neccessary.

    You have to do it AS SOON as possible, or you miss the window. I believe Component works better than HDMI since the picture comes up faster due to the lack of HDMI handshaking.

    Somebody mentioned once or twice about wanting DirecTV to write an option into the CE MISC menu to restart and download firmware. With the HR24, it would indeed be a NICE feature.

    will try the component again for this.
    Doug I'll double check and pm the #'s later when I am up and moving again.
    forgot that earlier, sorry.

    Now that Alan got me thinking about it, I believe you can actually start the 0-2-4-6-8 when the front panel light first comes back on, even before there's a picture on-screen.

    Others who know better, please correct me if I'm wrong? TIA.

    No problems pulling a download on installed -500s. Haven't had any issues getting the push on my -100 either.

    On my HR24-500s, you need to start the 02468 as soon as the blue DTV logo lights up. If you wait evn a couple of seconds, it is too late.

    I thought I've read that some have found that you can input the force when the death eye starts rotating even before the blue welcome screen comes up. I have never tried that tho.

    During a restart, the display goes black. Start entering the code as soon as the front panel display lights up. Don't wait for the screen message.

    I have not been waiting for anything onscreen, as soon as first light blinks I enter it and still fails. even on component this morning.
    will try more in a bit, will update if it works. would be nice if something in this POS worked.

    I'm assuming you've tried it as well with another remote..?

    I have the one that came with the HR24, and another NFL remote too - both work for all functions.

    If those don't work...it would seem that either Doug's checking on the "pus list" or simply having a device hardware issue are about the only 2 things left.
