    I usually check the DirecTV Firmware Watcher site every few weeks and found that it has been down for several days. Is it still a working site?

    Anywhere else has the latest firmware info?

    Thanks

    IBM is buying Red Hat ( the software used for the receivers).This may or may not have something to do with it. Or, the person (s) that keep this up to date might just be away on vacation. I have seen it down for extended periods in the past.

    redhat.com and redh.com are NOT the same site. And while the receivers run Linux, they are not running Red Hat's particular flavor of Linux so the IBM buyout has nothing to do with Directv let alone redh.
