I purchased a DVR40 from a dealer that was using it as a demo. He had a dealer demo card (which he kept, of course) and DTV apparantly forced a download of a special demo version software when he activated it.
Everything works as expected, but the demo nag will popup if you watch one channel for about 15 minutes. It doesn't do it during playback of recorded shows. This is highly annoying. You have to quickly grab the remote and click on continue a couple of times to get rid of it.
I suspect I need to get a hold of a "normal user" software version and use WinHEX to load it.
Any thoughts or ideas on this?
