Does anyone know if DirecTV is still sending down firmware updates? Like for the DTC-100.


My brother used to get bothered almost every night about an update being scheduled. He just reset the receiver so it didn't update. But now using a DTC-100 with an HDTV, and he's getting random blocks of color flashing on the screen. We're not sure if it's timing related or not since he's using an older firmware and a non-RCA TV.


But he hasn't gotten bothered for a while now, and we're wondering if the updates are still being sent. If they are not, then how can this receiver get updated?

I'm not sure why he would not allow the updates to happen automatically, because you should pretty much always accept updates.


Typically DirecTV will send updates for particular STB every day or two for a period of about 3 months or so.


I believe they can also send a particular update on demand, but you'd have to ask customer service (probably level 2 tech support) for sure.

It doesn't look like they are anymore. :(
