Might want to post a copy of move this into the DirecTV DVR section as well, most of the DVR users will look for that info there.

I don't know -- I guess this is good news. It probably means the new MPEG 4 HD DVR is more delayed than originally thought.

----------
I think there will be lots of posts when it starts to rollout. D* will push it out
via Sat. over the next several weeks in various area's(probably to avoid lots of
trouble calls from all over). For most of us, no need to take any action, it will
d/l automatic. (for all those who may argue NO the update comes via phone)
please note that the usual case is in the INITAL rollouts, the update is pushed
via sat to your H/D...Later(6months?) it is via phone. If you have a hacked unit you can check in the MFS under /SwSystem (?) to see if you have yet downloaded the software via the satellite. Then the phone call connection, will "authorize" the box to apply the update. For the rest of us,if you view system info that there is an indicator like "pending update" that will let you know that the download is ready and waiting:)

Yeah, once it is reported that the upgrade is there, everyone will be forcing daily calls.:D

Hoax???? I see D* has taken the upgrade announcment page down, and the
CSR's are said to be telling people that there is no upgrade available. Could this
be some cruel hoax??(Hope not)!!:eek:

What exactly will the software upgrade accomplish? Just installed 2 new HR10-250's a couple of weeks ago and wondering what the new software will do.

Main benefit = faster guide.

But I have my doubts about whether this update actually exists.
