    Everyone keeps saying DTV will soon have an update for the HR24-500. Will this be done automatically, or do I need to be watching for it?

    Im new to DTV and havent been through an upgrade before.

    Updates come automatically, and they're working hard to get you one for your HR24-500.

    It will be automatic, probably about 2:00 in the morning local time. You may not even know it's happened.

    It will upgrade itself automatically at about 3:00 AM, when it happens. You don't need to do anything.

    Rollouts of new firmware is done gradually, to a small percentage of receivers each night, Any changes made to the user interface generates calls to the call center. ("Why does such-and-such a menu look different today.") So, they roll out gradually so as not to overwhelm their call center.
