R15-300 - http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=91651
Strange occurrence this evening....turned the tv on and all the locals had frozen pictures..i did a soft restart and had the same problem........
So has ANYONE with the 300 got the update yet? Mine still says January... as on July 17... 7 days after the 'release'
Mountain time zone received it on 7/10, Pacific received it on 7/17, the other time zones have yet to have it released.
Both of my 300's were upgraded at 3:26 am today, July 18th. One needed a restart since I only had a black screen on any channel I chose. Both units are now running with no problems in Jacksonville, Fl.
I'm in California and mine was updated at about 2:30am on 7/17/2007. So far it seems to be working OK.
Should I do a hard reset (DA-REC or 02468) like we needed to do with the earlier updates? I'm just nervous that if I don't I'll get all of those strange issues like blank recordings and sudden resets.
Where do you find the date? I don't see one on mine.
Look in your system information screen... shoudl be right next to the version number.
If you have the most recent update, holding info will take you right to the screen where you would need to look
I'm not at home in front of my DVR but I believe it's:
Menu -> Settings -> Test & Info
You'll see the date on that screen on the same line as the software version.
A lot of people have gotten it...
But it is a staggered release... and is not going to everyone at the same time.
So if yours is still saying January, then either:
-) You didn't get the update yet.
-) You downloaded the CE (which doesn't update the date), and your box will NOT re-download the same software version.
Mine is updated 7-17-2007 2:27am
Mine up dated on 7-18-07 @ 3:47 am est. So far no problems, but with the CE I had only a few glitches with scheduling of the same program 2 times in a row, so I was more than happy with the CE, hope this 0x1095 version is as good as the CE was, as I was very happy with the CE. I was just so happy to be rid of the looping fast forward, and it responds 80% faster than the previous release before the CE. I"am happy with it now, glad it now works like it was supposed to from day 1.
Do you still think that the R15STINKS?
Mine says past upgrade 0x1095 but there is no date. The only date at all is the current date & time.
My two R15-300s received the 1095 upgrade at 2:36AM on 7/18. Both R15s are connected to the same TV via an electronic switch. The switch has 4 inputs. Two are used for the R15s, one for a DVD player and one for a VCR/camera. In auto mode the switch is 'smart' in that it will send the highest priority input signal to the TV. I have arranged the device inputs so that one R15 is the lowest priority, the second R15 is next, the DVD player is next and the VCR is the highest. I discovered that following the upgrade, both the R15s present a video signal to the switch even when they are powered off. There is no actual picture (black) but the TV thinks it is recieving a signal as does the switch. This is akin to a computer raising RTS to a modem even when powered off. This means I cannot view the lowest priority R15 because the higher priority R15 always controls the switch. (Note: in manual mode, the switch can be set to pass any one of the inputs to the TV, but this requires me to get my lazy butt up, walk to the TV, reach behind it to the switch and manually change it. This kind of ruins my couch potato status.) I have tried resetting the R15s via reset and unplugging them for 30 seconds and plugging them back in, but nothing changes. The DTV help desk and technical support did little but defend the R15s and software upgrade, casting blame on the switch. Any suggestions?
No suggestions to be given.
Is it is in fact sending some sort of signal still while in Standby... there is nothing you can do on the consumer side to change that.
It is something that would have to be addressed in a software updated.
Both my R15-300s received the latest 1095 SW on their own and I've noticed one glitch.
While watching a recorded event I used to be able to hold down the "skip ahead" button and it would advance to the end of the event and the "delete/do not delete" box, now it doesn't advance to the end on either R15.
RBR'ed both R15s and still no advance to end of event. Damn, that was a convenient feature. I hope it is an oversight and will be fixed in the next SW release in 2010
Mine works ok. I press & hold the Advance key & it jumps to the end (About 1 min before the end)
