    No, you just have to wait for your receiver's number to be called.

    My second DSR704 finally got the update earlier this week. 2.5 weeks after the initial activation.

    Are you saying that DirecTV will try and call my receiver? That's never going to happen. AFIAK, the receiver calls DirecTV, and then there's some mysterious process that the server uses to decide to send the update. Seems to me that they ought to be able to set a flag on the receiver's account to get the update....

    No, that's not what I meant. They are flagging a certain # of receivers for the updates (each day, each week, I don't know the exact interval). When your number (receiver's number) is called (flagged) then the next time your receiver successfully calls in, it should download the update.

    I was told the same thing by their tech. They had a 3 month window for the upgrades that ended 5/12. He did say for me to give mine another week and then call back.

    My first Samsung SIR-4040R activated last Saturday came with 3.1.1.0 something and updated to 3.1.1.b immediately. I got the c update on Tuesday. I activated a second Samsung last night and it came with 3.1.1.c preinstalled.

    I have two Samsung 4040 DVRs that were installed last Saturday. One updated to 3.1.1c on Sunday and the other on Monday. Not sure why mine would have updated and yours didn't.

    Still waiting for an upgrade from 3.1.1b. The receiver was purchased on March 19, and the hard drive was upgraded on March 20. :)

    Update: finally got the 3.1.1c update on Saturday, May 30. I felt like we were the last DTiVo on 3.1.1b.

    I hate crossposting to several forums, but here is some good news for Series 1 owners.

    From the Tivo Community board, the "C" patch began rolling out to Series 1 boxes today:

    Supposed to fix the "Aquiring program" message as well as the channels you receiver issue. They are also asking for beta testers that keep losing their favorites to signup for a beta to try to determine the root cause of the issue.

    I wish the Series 2 DTivo's could be used over a home network instead of the phone line.

    Some dvr's that were experiencing guide problems are getting a download. the first time zone to get the download is mountain time. it will be around 2am, june 28. the new version will be 3.1.0c (as opposed to the newer models that get upgraded to 3.1.1c)

    download is for hns gxcebot gxcebotd, philips dsr6000r, and sony sat-t60. this will fix the "acquiring program guide....full data in 1-2 days" and the loss of the guide.

    if in mountain time, process occurs jun 28 (pre-dawn hours)
    if in other time zones, process occurs jul 5 (pre-dawn hours)

    if upgrade is not complete by jul 7, reset. upgrade should occur within next 24 hours.

    see.... if all goes well, and it won't, which is why i have my job, heh, this problem will be going away soon.

    I'm just curious why D-TiVos aren't on 4.0.x like the standalones are.

    Because DirecTV doesn't want them to be. And that's the truth to be brutally honest.

    Anyone else still occasionally get the Acquiring Guide Information message when in Pick Programs To Record and it's submenus? Not that it's a big deal, but on my Hughes I saw the message once a few weeks ago, and again yesterday. If I went back it was still there, but when I went to live TV and back into Pick Programs to Record the message did not display.

    I've noticed it while I was doing some massive scanning of movies to record later. I suspect that some of the guide data was being discarded and the receiver was too busy to receive new guide data.

    That message *is* a normal message to see from time to time. The bug was that it was just displayed all the time, even if it actually wasn't aquiring data.
