    There really isn't much more to tell about it...

    Basically the HR10-250 will be the same as the other 6.x systems, with the HD hooks ins.

    I hopefully will get the full release notes and maybe a time schedule early in the work week.

    Don't the updates come over the dish itself, and the phonecall just gives the order to flip partitions?

    I seem to recall that 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. Am I correct?

    You're thinking of the R15 that gets it's upgrades via the Sat Signal. The DirecTiVos get their upgrade via phone line.

    Usually on the initial rollouts..
    The software will pushout via the SAT, and sit on the hard drive.

    Then the phone call connection, will "authorize" the box to apply the update.

    Later on... after the initial rollout (probably 6 months), it will download via the phone line.

    So should I be forcing a call every 15 minutes until I get this?

    Not that I am eager to get it or anything... :p

    I gotta say, I did not believe this would ever come. I might actually keep DirecTV after the S3 comes out if the S3 turns out to be too expensive. That way I can wait until the price drops some.

    I've always said if I just had folders and a bit more speed the HD-TiVo was perfect for me.

    I would think people will let us know when they start seeing it. 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.

    Well, this last week, at about 2 am, I was changing channels on my H10, and got a message I had never seen before. It said something like the DVR was retrieving information from the satellite to improve functionality, and if I changed channels, it would disturb the download. Also, the record light came on. The screen showed a progress bar, and the whole thing took about 7 minutes. When it finished, the record light turned off. However, I still have the old software. Any ideas about what this was?

    Do you mean "H10" or "HR10-250"? The H10 is a HiDef DirecTV Receiver, not a DVR. Your H10 might very well have been receiving a receiver update.

    Yay speed. I can't wait.

    I'd love all the other features we all long(ed) for (native passthrough, HMO, etc.) but I'll settle for a more responsive box with folders. The rest is really gravy for me.

    I'd say that some people owe some users here an apology, like richierich who said -

    "I told all of you a year ago that it won't happen because they are not going to invest any more resources in a unit that they are going to replace with their own DVR, the HR20-250!! But so many were blind and just don't understand the corporate mentality & strategy!!!"

    Calling people "blind" and basically -stupid- for believing they may possibly get an update.

    Because none of us could know for sure if the update would come, and since there are a lot of considerations that go into "corporate mentality & strategy" as to make it impossible to accurately guess, those comments were offensive and, quite frankly, not too smart.
