    So I guess geographic location is no indication because I am also in Queens.

    I wonder how they calculate who gets the update first. I just got the hr10-250 (late August 2006) . So I don't think it has to do with "seniority". Who knows? :confused:

    It is in the section in which you have make a "Daily Call" in the status area. Normally it would say succesfully completed, or something along those line, when there is an update available it will say "pending restart".

    Then your unit hasn't downloaded it yet, the forced call just enables the update after it's downloaded over the dish.

    My receiver just made it's daily call on its own (as scheduled) 20 minutes ago. I am not at home, husband is (not as familar with the receiver). He said the next daily call is scheduled for Saturday. I asked him to restart the receiver. I am waiting to see what happens.

    dumb question, dont have access to a phone line. would it be ok for me to go to a friend's house with a phone line just to do the dial in part and bring the unit back home to get the download? he also has directv but not sure if i could do the download there.

    It finished updating a while ago. I now have folders...YAY!!! I did notice a couple of things though...

    One: As it has been said before, the channels you receive, and favorite channels list needs updating after the software upgrade (If you're expecting something to record before you can do this, don't upgrade!). However, once this is done, the "Channels You Receive" list changes to "Channel List". This setup is different from the SD DirecTiVo units out there, but is just like the Stand-Alone TiVos in that you use a checkmark for channels you receive, and thumbs-up for channels you want in your "Favorites" guide.

    Two: Whenever you change to a ATSC channel, the "Searching For Signal on: Antenna In" message comes up for a split before it disappears.

    Three: I was hoping that they would update some of the channel logos, particularly MyNetworkTV and The CW, but when I checked a MyNetworkTV station, it was still a blank logo. If anybody else wants to check out other stations, please do.

    One of mine must have updated last night while I was out. When I got back, the 30 second skip feature wasn't working. At first I thought the power must have gone out, but now I realize it was probably the update. I'll have to check when I get home.

    I also have an HR20 that should arrive today, but won't have a 5LNB dish for a while. Now if I only had some time....

    Restarting it won't force the phone call, you need to go into the phone settings and force it to make it's daily call.

    You can do this once the code has downloaded, the phone call is required to activate the upgrade after the code is downloaded.

    It's a staged roll out so this is possible.

    I would be afraid to as calling in from the wrong number may cause your receiver to be disabled. Then again, if this is just a TiVo thing, maybe not.

    I would suggest that you call tech support before you try it.

    After a software upgrade or power cycle, you have to re-initiate the 30 sec. skip.
