    Your Sig suggests you have a HR22-100. Getting the latest on on your HR20 will not benefit you if these are the only 2 receivers you have.

    You can find directions here on how to force an update. Force it at your own risk. BTW, it is possible that your HR20 has it already. The update for the HR22-100 isn't available yet according to other posts.

    All national releases go out in stages. You cant get newer NR's until your receiver is authorized to receive it. Eventually everyone gets the NR.

    I need to remember to look at people signatures on this forum, before I ask questions they may have answered there. :eek:

    You can, just like you can force getting a CE release even when your not on any list with DirecTV. The authorization is for automatic pushes to the box, and not forced pulls.

    Look at the DirecTV Firmware Watcher page, and the version listed next to your model in green is what you should get if you force a pull. If your model isn't listed, look at this page and then go back. If there is more then one version listed next to your model in green, I'm not sure exactly what happens. If there isn't one in green, I imagine the box won't try to update.

    Neither. As of this moment, there is apparently no new software going out for H21/H23 (I'm guessing a problem was found is 0x4395 and rollout stopped). As for when the rollout will start up again... who knows? Tonight? Tomorrow? Next week?

    It will come. Patience...

    There was no problem with 0x4395 .. It was destined only for HI and AK .. There will be a full national rollout soon if it hasn't yet started.

    My HR21-700 dropped a few days back and my HR22-100 JUST got the update yesterday. I was planning to run an ethernet cable to the HR22 anyways so this just sped up the requirement. All I have to say is WOW!!!!

    Folks, for MRV being beta, all I have to say is WOW! I noticed some pixelation from time to time but it wasn't choppy, it wasn't slow, it just worked!!!!

    That's the CE software, not the NR.
