    My HR22-100 pop'ed up an "Important software upgrade click OK to Download"
    so I clicked OK and it downloaded 0x0312. I also was getting the diagnostic code 43-165 after running the system test before the upgrade. And now I'm getting a diagnostic code 42-402 when running the system test after the upgrade. :confused:

    Anyone else unhappy about the update occurring during prime time? Nice interruption to Game 6 of the Stanley. Thanks D*! Fortunately, I still have Comcast as a back up. Picture was crap, but better than nothing. :mad:

    Yea, mine got it at 7:45 P.M. WHY? How about 2 AM when no one is watching?

    I received the update at 8:09 PM during the Stanley Cup game as well. Fortunately, my other HR22 did not get the update, so I could watch the game without interruption. I know they won't do this, but I still wish we had an option to schedule it.

    As has been noted elsewhere, HR20-100s are now receiving this update.

    Yep. Occurred in the middle of the Red Sox - Yankees game for us. How does DTV determine when to push out the new receiver code? It wouldn't be an issue if it only took a few minutes and didn't interrupt recording or viewing. Not cool at all.

    My wife was more annoyed than me, as she had the remote and had to keep telling it to dl later. They could've at least had an option to set a time for the dl.

    Because they simply do not care. So long as they get their money, they are happy.

    One day I will have another choice other than satellite , and I will happily not look back.

    The next time DirecTV tries to merge with Echostar I will again write to the FCC in opposition, and include the abusive customer service practices I have experienced firsthand.

    Just ask the satellite radio subscribers how good the Sirius/XM merger has been for consumers. It's been one rate increase after another since competition and consumer choice was eliminated.

    Did it ask you whether or not you wanted to take the update? If you said "Later" then it would have likely waited until overnight to do the update.

    This update solved my OTA problem. Before the update I had one channel mapped incorrectly, then after redoing OTA setup that one was fine but no other channels got a signal. All OTA channels are now being received and all are mapped correctly. Thank you for the updated, DirecTV.

    Not quite... mine asked about every 15 minutes while I was watching TV last night. Not sure how long it left the question on the screen for, but I would have been pissed if it updated while I was going to the bathroom, getting a snack, etc. They really should wait several hours after asking (although starting the downloads in the middle of the night would be a much better idea to begin with)

    My HR20-100 never asked about downloading the update.
    It got it this morning at 3:23AM ET.

    I usually only post to complain in these threads, but I just wanted to say that my HR20-700 seems more responsive and faster at everything. I'm very happy with the noticeable improvement. I'm going to take a look and see if the ATSC changes allow me to better tune a couple channels.

    Received the update for the HR20-100 this morning. The "dish alignment" and "Tuner 2" faults have disappeared. Seems faster, but that always happens after a reboot.
