I activated my new Toshiba DST-3000 2 days ago. It had firmware 5046. After activating DirecTv, it said a future upgrade to 5099 would occur last night at 12:59 PM. I left the unit off but plugged in. This morning the unit would not turn back on without first unplugging it, then a guide re-aquire happened. It still says that 5046 is the firmware, and lists future 5099 upgrade to occur at "12:59 PM February 23, 2003". Also the guide now won't download for more than 6 hours of data.


Anyone experienced this? Can I get the 5099 download any sooner than 2/23/03??


thanks

This is very wierd. I would suggest that you unplug the unit overnight one night and see if its behavior doesn't change.


I know that with my unit sometimes unplugging it for 5-10 minutes gets it in a very confused "partially reset" state. Overnight is proabbly not required but when this happened to me I left it off for a couple of hours. There is a special softboot sequence on the remote but for me unplugging it for awhile is the failsafe approach.
