How do I force a soft ware down load?
At 'hello' screen press 02468.
Forcing a software download is usually not necessary. Your receiver will automatically download the latest software. Are you having any issues?
Yes and thanks for the response.
Just installed hr23-700.
High readings on all transponders.
Error messages: 45-951; 42-646 and 12-137
Not sure what those errors mean, but forcing a download will do nothing to solve the problem.
Error 45-xxx means that your DVR is not properly receiving Guide Data. This is often due to poor reception of the 119ºW satellite (if you have a SlimLine 5-LNB dish), or having the wrong dish type set (set to "SlimLine5" when you actually have a "SlimLine3" dish).
Error 42-xxx is also signal related. Check your signal readings on BOTH tuners. One might be weaker than the other, or missing key satellites.
The Error 12-xxx might be the clincher here. This usually means that you have a defective DVR tuner. But check the signals first.
