    Just got a popup msg while watching live TV that a new SW was available, select yes to install now or no to be reminded in 15 minutes. Selected yes, installing now...

    I was feeling adventurous so I said "Yes". It loaded the software on the fly and says it will process it the next time the unit is rebooted :eek2:

    I went to the guide and I got the same thing. Except I don't think I had a choice but to go though with the upgrade.

    PS Well it was surprising fast, seemed to be back up in less than 5 minutes. I now have 275.

    Same here the new version is apparently downloading but no flashing power light.
    Anybody know what L275 is suppose to do or correct?

    Same thing. Postponed for 15 minutes and now have let it start the upgrade. Since I was in the middle of recording a show (I was also watching a show from the other night), so I would have thouht it should have automatically postponed it rather than ask me.

    My experience was the same as the rest. That is the first time I've seen that message.

    Anyway, now I have 275. Who knows what it was supposed to fix?:confused:

    Not sure if that took. I saw a red light go on at 10 right in the middle of it saying it was upgrading the Software. When it came on 8 minutes later it still said l274 and had 8 minutes of the show from 10 oclock. I have decided to stop recording the show and started a reboot.

    Same thing here. I was starting to get worried after it rebooted three times ... I finally interrupted it (I guess) and now I'm watching using 2.74 again, and it still says that the software will be installed after a reboot. I think I won't reboot again until, let's see, April 20th or so when my 921 is ready for the Big Sleep.

    I'm a little concerned about this update. Everything seemed pretty stable with 274. Right now my remote is acting very poorly. There is a significant delay when I push the guide button (2 - 3 seconds) before the guide comes up. Hope we aren't going to have more trouble

    Got the message while watching. Chose to delay, but it rebooted anyway. Hope it fixes the switching from HD to SD problem. Have to update my signature for version.

    Got the pop-up while watching a recorded show and recording other content. Accepted the download, everything kept working as expected except that the recorded show I was watching changed its aspect to zoom instead of normal.

    When show stopped recording, powered down unit - unplugged from wall (why do we even have to go through these hoops). Update loaded as expected.

    No waiting for guide info after update.

    Smart card reboot fixed me right up. I think this up?grade takes either that or a power cord reset to take hold.

    Downloaded during the evening shows, that is an odd time for it to spool. Don't see anything new.
