Looks like RedH is down this morning but it should be in the stream till 7 AM, one tip for anyone who updates blindly when RedH is down. You can stop the update before 90% has downloaded without doing any harm. So if you force and see the firmware is not what you want you can just reboot and you will still be on the current version. I have heard another HR54 user say the same thing with the RC73 remote, that the force didn't work, I also suggested to that person to try an older DTV remote. I personally have the HR54 with the RC73 and it works fine, so there must be some set of boxes that have a different bootstrap where it doesn't support the RF. Has anyone tried to set the remote to IR then force? I am also hearing lots of folks getting the push last night into this morning, so DTV is stepping up the rollout.
I forced it this morning with the old remote and got the update with no problems. Hadn’t had much time to check it out but seemed to be fast and no lag. Love the icons in the guide. Just have to get use to the menu and recorded list.
