    My newer unit got the update but still noting on the older one. One strange thing: I have not been able to force a call on the one w/o the update. It says that it is "updating" and I cannot test or make a daily call. It has been this way for better than a week.

    It sometimes says that the service is not responding when it makes its daily call, but it says a service update has completed. I have rebooted, but no change.

    Any ideas?

    AJ - Reboot the box. It sometimes gets stuck. That will clear it.

    Rebooting does not help.

    I was hoping the OTA dropouts were just a 1 time deal, but not so. Had them all night watching FOX Mets-Cards game. I found that when I switched channels between OTA and D* local-29 it would decrease the dropouts SOMETIMES! Its like the OTA loses sync or something.

    i'm watching CW from last night now...and it's perfect..... except 1x FF wouldn't work on last night CW OTA. It freezes when you do 1x FF but 2 and 3x work..unplugged the 2nd receiver to prevent this problem

    I too have problems with OTA 29-1. I use 88 FOXE for programming. At least where I live in the city, the OTA signal is weak or non-existant.

    My family room unit got the update on Saturday morning after I forced a call. My bedroom one still doesn't have the update. Be careful what you wish for because the audio drop out is for real. I kept wondering why the heck am I getting audio dropouts and a brief picture pixelization. It is mainly on the FOX OTA signal. I look at the signal strength and it is at 92. At least we are all in the same boat that Directv cast us out in. I can deal with it, just annoying, my wife will be another story once she witnesses . It is the worst on the FOX OTA but I have noticed it on the NBC OTA as well just not as bad.

    Still no love here... I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I'll be calling D* on the 20th to remind them I'm here.

    No love here either, although a friend in the same zipcode got his yesterday (bastard!).

    We ought to have a contest to see who gets the update last! Looks like those of us in this thread are all good candidates.

    I know I'm in the south and everything runs a bit slower here so that may be the reason for no update yet. :)

    No update for me either. I was pretty confident that I would be one of the last to get it...seems I was correct.
