You can ignore that fellow; he couldn't be more wrong and has completely misrepresented the situation. Our software is not buggy, and the thread referenced just a few posts ago discusses the migration of the DirecTV software from 3.1.0 to 3.5.0 and how to use free tools here to deal with that issue, even if you've used InstantCake for your upgrade. If you've purchased an earlier version of InstantCake there is no need to purchase anything further and no knowledge of MFStools is required regardless of the path chosen (unless you want to do your upgrade over again completely from scratch). Just follow the recommendations made in the Series1 DirecTiVo Software Update (3.5.0) Migration Thread and you'd be good to go. In your particular case, you may not want to go the DIY route; consider a kit, or consider a DIY software product, or consider a completely DIY route that involves purchasing nothing and using all of the free resources at your disposal. BUT, whichever method you choose to use, please do your research and understand the implications of using that particular method before you implement it. As for this thread, its about our free LBA48 CD; please see the first post as it will give you a good overview of what this CD is used for.
