Re: Force update

We never recommend forcing updates as there is beta testing software that can cause more problems.

Re: Force update

You can't force it.  It will come when it's your equipment's turn.

Re: Force update

@bdswedberg, none of us know.  I'm guessing they've slowed down the rollout given all of the complaints about the new menus.

Re: Force update

As per Directv support, you can force the upgrade by performing the following steps:

 

Reset the receiver by pressing the red reset button.
 
While on blue screen, enter 0 2 4 6 using the remote.

 

That's it.  Suggest performing it late in the evening as the process takes a long time to complete.

DANGER, DANGER, DANGER!!!

It's very risky to force DirecTV software updates.  You have no idea what version you might get.  An early beta software release could wipe out recordings.  It's happened to folks before.  Proceed at your own risk!

 

DirecTV software updates happen on an automatic schedule.  No need to force anything. 

 

If you want to play the beta software game, sign up as a beta tester at www.iamanedgecutter.com

Re: Force update

There has got to be a way for me to get the latest general (non-beta) release, or revert back to a previous solid revision that didn't constantly only show me a couple recorded programs. Then other times show me a different 3 programs. Sometimes the "0" sort workaround works enough to show me the program that i want to watch. Other times it removes more choices. Even Microsoft comes out with a patch within a few days, if they screw up a rollout. This has been months. So looking for some knowledge. Pertinent info below:

 

Receiver: HR44/500

Software: 0x1104, Thu 8/9. 3:03a

 

Again looking for a push of a more recent rev, or a way to revert to a less buggy build. Thanks!
