Fortunately for me, works just like before. If I were you, I wouldn't take it either.
I accepted it by accident. I was trying to get CBS-HD activated and at that moment the CSR was working on it, the message showed up on the screen. I thought the download was required to add the new channel. As it turned out, this was wrong.

Again, I updated to the latest version and I can still record HD content just fine. You guys are paranoid. Probably the 5000 doesn't even have enough ram in it to support a software upgrade with copy protection technology. It's bogged down enough the way it is and I really doubt that anyone at Dish is wasting their time writing code to piss off nerds like us...
