I just noticed that my 721 green light was flashing.....I turned on the tv and see a screen saying that my system is being upgraded. Does this mean I am receiving the upgrade that Scott has been talking about?

L116 is spooling now to my 721 ...

It completed the download and I don't have time to investigate changes. I can tell you that the "check switch" bug is still there from 115

Strange, my screen has been showing "Download installation succeeded Please wait while the sysem is upgraded" This has been showing over half an hour now. Also, the email light shows on the front panel. Should I continue to wait, or is there something else I should be doing to complete the upgrade?

DougE,

Mine did the same thing. It usually reboots automatically after a new software download but I had to hold the power button in on the receiver for 5 seconds to force a manual reboot. Just do that and you will be good to go.

Let me know if your screensaver is working. :)

Leave a menu up for a long time (Like 20 minutes) a screen saver will kick in if its working. :)

OK after 20 minutes, a form of screen saver came up. In the background is A & E which is the channel I had been watching before the software download. The screensaver is a myarid of what looks like a picture puzzle, then moving images of lines

Screensaver worked on mine too but I have a widescreen tv and I noticed the screensaver didn't cover the whole screen. It left about an inch on the left and right hand side of the screen without a screen saver. The channel I was watching was still showing in that area untouched.

So I take it that the screensaver is in the same form that it was before it was removed.

Press and hold the power button until the receiver reboots.

Once its done rebooting it will be gone. :)
