    My wife was recording the news and I forgot to tell her not to - so bit of a late start - approx 11:28 got the first prompt - OK. After the reboot it locked on to the software and started downloading immediately. 11:54 - back up on 1241 - no problem. Did see the previously mentioned long black screen.

    I'm visiting family in Southern California so I won't be able to check until Monday.

    A great holiday weekend to all.

    EDIT: 0x1241 received unattended without issue.

    I got 0x1241

    Download completed at 12:01am ET.

    I'm not sure where to log this problem because this happened before the download of 0x1241 (0x1240). However, I was playing in the 'Game Lounge' last night and I lost the TV video portion. In other words, I could see the guide and the menus, but the live video portion (the video was blank but I could still hear the audio). I tried changing the channels and I could not get it back. I finally had to reboot before my live video returned. It seems like the HR23 did not exit gracefully from the 'Game Lounge'.

    I will try again today on 0x1241 to see if this happens again.

    I got home this morning & saw that 0x1241 downloaded successfully!
    This was the first time an unattended push went through with no problems.

    The...
    Sorry I'am late to report. My wife was home last night and I was not. I told her that the "Download Now" message may come up after 11pm and to select that option so when it did she told it to do so. She called me back and said the HR23 was off and the screen was black. I told her to unplug the power cord and plug it back in and as always the Software Download screen was the first to pop after power was applied and it was at 0% when it came back on. Download of 0x1241 was successful after that.

    Conclusion: Download of software does fine if left unattended.If I try to interact and say "Download Now" I will have a locked up unit and have to remove the power,plug it back in and than all is fine. The History says one attempt at 11:30pm.

    I voted "Yes but with issues" and I'am all alone once more.
