    Twice now I have woken up to my H24 at the 'searching for new software' screen (it never finds new software) -- I assume it is trying to download this automatically and failing for some reason.....

    Once I red button reset or pull power and plug it in, the receiver boots and works fine, but is this something I should be worried about?

    From what I have read,

    Check your signal strengths. The software sometimes requires a better signal that the picture does and your dish might need to be adjusted.

    What sat do the updates come from? 101 I assume?

    Thing is, all the other receivers have no problem updating.

    Yes from the 101. I am not sure if the H24 software is "ON" all the time

    I have had this issue before on that same receiver model............. I had to replace the LNB....... and all worked fine. Even swapping locations didn't work.

    Best of Luck
