    Try using the menu to reset your HR20. That worked for me.

    According to Earl, the 0x1B4 release just went national today. All boxes should be updated today with DoD...

    What code? I thought the national release was automatic and we didn't have to "do" anything other than have a networked HR20-700 and maybe a reboot.

    Until you get the national release, you need the code. Sounds like it's just arriving on the east coast today.

    I'm getting the VOD screen on my HR20, do I have to have both "internet connection" and "network" to my home computer to get the VOD active? Right now I have internet active but not network. Thanks for any info in advance.

    Keep in mind that once you see that "On Demand" is in your menu, it can still take 24-48 hours for all the programming data to download.

    The upgrade hit my system today. Setting everything up was simple, but, not easy. I got a new 750Gig external drive on eBay, but the drive had the wrong cable. Once i got the right cable, it worked great. I did, however, need to re-enter all my channals, and searches.

    The other problem was setting up my wireless access port. Again, I did not get the correct power adapter, and no setup software with the eBay purchase. But after getting all that worked out, setting up the network on my HR20-700 system was simple.

    As a test I am downloading a program now.

    I have it showing here in Iowa. About 15 minutes later programs starting appearing.

    You only need the internet connection for VOD. Networking is if you want to view photos and such from you computer on your HR20, but totally unecessary for VOD.

    Got the update to my HR20 here in NorCal overnight. The VOD option is in the menu already and MediaShare is still active too. The programs look to be as plentiful as those on my HR20 with the CE.
