    What's new in the newest software update from this morning/yesterday? I've got the R15-500 and it did a software update. Where can you find out what's new online? Is there a page DTV has that gives all the info on the updates when they happen or something? I hate it not knowing what's in the updates.

    What version did you receive?
    We have a dedicated forum here at DBSTalk for the release notes... but I need to make sure that I have the release notes for the version you received.

    Updates are normally at 2-3am.
    As for why yours is sitting at 0%... that is a different issue.

    I've had an R-15-500 for almost 2 years. Overall, my problems have been only moderate compared to others I've read here.

    But lately scheduling with L&O episodes are crazy.

    Up until this morning I had software update 1169. When I tried to schedule L&O Crimininal Intent, first run only, it would add most, but not all the reruns to the ToDo List. It would only add the first runs the day before airing, even though repeats would be added 10 or more days in advance.

    A few days ago L&O (original) on NBC started popping up even though I asked for only first run episodes on NBC and these are all repeats.

    As of yesterday (v. 1169) SVU seemed to work fine. I asked for first run episodes and that's what I got. No repeats scheduled.

    Of course, today, I received software upgrade 1175 and Mr. Murphy came along with it. Now, for the first time, many of the repeat episodes of SVU are showing up, which didn't happen yesterday (1169). Plus a very strange entry. A duplicate SVU on the ToDo List. L&O SVU, Wed 12/26 900pm USA channel. Both entries have the same show title, date, time and channel !! Of course, now this series link us useless since it overpopulates the ToDo List with shows I don't want to watch. Are they ever going to get the First Run vs. Repeat selection right???

    Does anyone know how they make the selection? I know it's not the word "repeat" in the info text. That does not correlate with what it actually does.

    Oh yeah, one more "gift" of v. 1175. While others have had problems with the auto reverse feature it worked perfectly for me (1169). At 2x and 3x it would back up to the exact start of the next program segment. Now with 1175 the backup is late by 5-10 seconds. I must now hit backup button after auto reverse. This just started today. Obviously someone "fixed" the problem (not).

    Anyone else have these problems or others with 1175?

    I also got my 300 update at 7 AM a couple of weeks ago. It sat at 0% for ever then gave a error message about 5 times before it finally downloaded.

    At least with your L&O CI issues... that is because of USA's refusal to code the episodes correctly with their guide data.

    The same thing happens (or close to it), on the HR20's.
    And has long since been a problem.

    USA has been told to do it right, but they don't seem to care.

    I think Monsterman gave you the correct release notes. I think Earl "typo'ed" 1775 instead of 1175.

    From what I have uncovered from D* and reading around, this is what it does.

    x1175 – first downloaded Dec 13, 2007

    Fixes NFL Trickplay while interactive application is available.
    Fixes Record/Watch limitation while using Manual Record.

    :)

    I received the up date (X1175) last week and until then my unit worked flawlessly. Now, I'm a annoyed with the fact that you can't switch back from a live program to a recorded program using the prev button anymore. Instead it goes to the info channel.:rolleyes: I called tech support and they told me that they are aware of the change and had me file a complaint.

    I am seeing recordings I did not record show up in my list of shows recorded. This totally enrages and pisses me off.

    Might be showcases, which are in a separate tab and do not use any of the user allocated drive space.

    If you use the LIST button, you won't even see them. If you use the menu to get to your playlist, you do see them. So push List and presto, problem solved.

    You have no control over showcases. You can't prevent them recording and you can't delete them.
