The last I knew you have to be on a list to get a forced download unless it is a national release. In that case, it's only available within a certain time frame.

Red button reset. When white light comes on hold down add client button until white light is flashing.

Download is in progress when white light is flashing.

Suggest before doing a forced down load on the HS-17 - First remove the internet Connection -then start the download*that's) the missing step - If you are wireless -Remove the settings before reboot - If wire-Unplug the lan cable

Add client button is the button on top

It will actually attempt the download via internet if you have a wired connection

I didn't hold the button down, just a poke. I will give your method a try

WHILE solid white. Once it turns white THEN hold button down UNTIL it starts blinking.
After reset, the top light turns white and you hit and hold the button until the white light starts blinking then release the button. I think we are both saying the same thing.
