    Got up at normal time 5:00 this morning (3:00 PST) and did my normal quick check. Still 0x312. So for the 1st and only time I did the force download at 5:45. Got message "Found new software (34C)" and started downloading.

    Either there are a lot of coincidences or force download really seems to work. The time you do it may be important but if I was on the list already why didn't it download overnight?

    I'm just saying ...

    I say coincidence.

    There were several posts from members in the LA area who had received it and the forced downloads I did didn't get me 34C in my LA area. And some of these members had the exact same unit as I, so I gave up and it eventually got it when it got it. :)

    I would think it's possible, though, that once your unit has been authorized to download the new version, the scheduled automatic download may take place at another time. Thus, the "coincidence" if you do a force download between those times.

    Just my own little theory. :)

    I'm seriously considering forcing the download, but I don't want to hork up my DVR and have to get a new one. I'll just try to be patient. Maybe typing in here everyday that I DIDN'T get it will be good therapy for me.

    Is it possible to get it on the weekends, or do they take the weekends off?:lol:

    The previous firmware version had a spot in the advanced network menu to give the DVR a name, which was helpful with apps like DirectTV2PC. I believe this was enabled thru the IAMANEDGECUTTER search. That function appears to be gone in the current release. Is there another way to get to it?

    Without having to read the entire post, how does one 'force' the download?

    This was a special feature which required a backdoor code to access in 0x312. It is not available in 0x34c.

    You cannot force a download to get 0x34c early, it will come to you automatically.

    Doug is correct, you can't force it. You can only speed it up from sometime tonight to now, if your receiver has been authorized.

    With the CE's going out tonight I would think that for the luck few ;) that don't have it yet, we will not be getting it until Sunday night or later.

    Do they continue to update receivers on the weekend? I thought they stopped Friday and resumed on Monday? I hope they continue through the weekend. I would love to have it for Sunday afternoon!
