Done HR24. Done H24

Jimbo. I will trade that Tstorm for this heat wave we been having. It appears to rain all around us, but were missing it all.

Sounds like you right here with us, we've been missing the storms for the most part, till tonight.

90-95 most of the week with humidity around 80%.
Fortunately last night when the rains finally did get here the temps dropped to around 75* which actually made it nice for awhile.

Alot of the rains tend to go right above us like last night for a good part of it or go right below us, so they are always telling us were gonna get the rain, but often don't.

I like the storms, but I'd much rather get my painting done.

First CE Experience

Tonight was my first CE download experience. I was quite excited and nervous at the same time. I noticed a whole bunch of extra numbers between a typical restart (unfortunately, in the week since I have had the box, I have had numerous occasions to complete reboots). Also, downloading the data took a considerable amount of time, compared, again, to a typical reboot. Of course, this makes sense as I was downloading essentially a new operating system for my HR24-100.

Overall, the download went flawlessly. No issues or concerns to report at this time.

Welcome to the CE fun.
I'm guessing you've read all the info available here before hand.

It is normal for the D/L to take quite a bit longer to load as it will download the new software, then activate it, then reboot the box, so the difference is the D/L time .

Both .....

D*'s recvrs get updates automatically when D* decides to send them.

In the CE process, you manually download the update.

Info in the first several pages explaining the CE process.

Where do you go in the menu to do the manual updates for the CE??
