Re: DirecTV receiver update

Updates are usually automatically downloaded when ready. The only time it is necessary to force an update is usually at the install of a receiver.

 

What is the model of your receiver?

 

What software does it currently have?

(Menu, settings, info and test)

Re: DirecTV receiver update

its not recommended to force an update

you could end up with a beta version, or possibly brick the receiver

Re: DirecTV receiver update

you forced the update

it pulled whatever was in the stream

 

you are risking bricking your unit

Re: DirecTV receiver update

Mine at home also has the 0x11ac software as well though, so my list may be out of date. Like others have recommended I would not force any more updates as software is downloaded as it is released.

Re: DirecTV receiver update

Sorry for the repetitive posts here, did some more looking and found this,

 

Phased: 0x11ac (beginning 3.9.19)

National: x114b

 

This means that the x114b is the last download that can be forced and 0x11ac is the most current software being sent to this receiver.
