    ...for both the 100 and 700. Any 100s receive yet or force a download?

    If the site is accurate, I was under the impression updates came during the week. Not on weekends.

    They can release new versions at any time they want. There have been previous NRs released on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Yup, looks like it might be ready to go .. probably released overnight tonight, but you should be able to grab it now if you do a force download .. Waiting will be fine, though.

    Click here if you want to know how to force a download, but .. and I stress, BUT, it is perfectly acceptable to wait and let DIRECTV send it to you overnight.

    I tried doing a forced software download and it searched for new software for about 20 minutes and than I got a screen saying it couldn't find new software. Shouldn't it have at least redownloaded the 0x018A software?

    firmware again. Unless it has been corrupted. I assumed it would download it again, but maybe with the latest 0x18a it doesn't do that anymore.

    0x1b4 was the 9th test version since 0x18a.

    Here are the release notes for 0x1b4:

    HR20-700 {CE:09:09} - 0x1B4 Issues

    One feature I was really happy to see was that the left arrow now lets you do a lot more than the back button.

    Software downloads are sometimes suspended during Sunday Ticket games due to limited satellite bandwidth.

    I suppose you can try the red reset button or I suppose you can wait for it to time out.

    I too have hit the software download error - re-tried once, now going back to the weekend's CE.

    I hope no installers are being hit with the download error today...

    automatically when it goes national. Why put your STB through the wear and tear.
