If the updates aren't currently in the satellite stream, they will download over the phone line, and could take quite a long time, and multiple connects to get all the update.

Multiple connects meaning it will get parts of the newest software each time it connects.

They call it "slices", and they do this when the release is rather large, so the receiver doesn't tie up your phone line for hours trying to get it.
It will get a slice or two each night when it calls, then once it gets them all it puts them together and reboots to install it.

That's how I understand it anyway.

IIRC, there isn't a current software upgrade for the R10 being delivered by satellite, only by phone.
