    I just got a new Directv install including an R15 about a week ago. However, when I check the software version it says my last update was on 5/17/1979. Ther version is 100B. I assume this is some type of error...right?

    You have an older version... 100B IIRC is the original for a Philips built unit.
    You should be at 1035

    You can try to do the 02468 technique (when restarting on the very first screen key in on your remote 0 2 4 6 8 and it will force a download)

    or you can hang on till the next update in a few weeks.

    As for the date.... it is all screwy.

    The fact the software has been out since 1979 makes the issues that people are having unconscionable. ;)
