hello. read over the code listing threads and i'm not sure which to use.

I just bought another UTV (ebay $178 if curious) and received my new access card from DTV today and tonight I'd like to upgrade to 3.5


i'm not sure which code is the best to use and what exactly is the sequence of commands. I'm guessing that the short Jenny would be a good one, but again not sure. is this how i'd do it? :


power off the UTV(hit the power button 3x quickly)

press Menu on the remote (1 time or 3 times?)

enter in code (for short Jenny 5309)


then what is supposed to happen? does software update come via the satellite or phone? would prefer a code that uses satellite, would be faster and i don't have a phone line hooked up to it right now (although i can if need be).


thanks for any help. and here's to hoping 3.7 follows soon....

Yes, the short "Jenny" code will work.


1. Power off the UTV (power button just once is fine)

2. Press menu/options at least 3 times rapidly on the remote

3. Press 5-3-0-9 on the remote. Lights on the unit should flash momentarily


If the unit does not power on and start the download itself then power on the unit yourself. If it does not start the download process you did something wrong.


Note that many people have run into the can't-connect-to-default-local-number problem. If the unit hangs during the connecting phase, you may need use the pull-the-phone-cord-after-it-dials-nonworking-numbers technique. See other threads on the forum for details on this.

Plan on a couple of hours.
