Directv Receiver Firmware Upgrading Step by Step with Bonus Information DTV doesn't share. Please read notes from top to the very bottom before updating (Lots of good and important information) Click on ⬇️Show more⬇️ ** Latest Firmware listed ** THUMBS UP ** SUB **
Video shows step by step how to force an update on your DTV HR receiver with additional information on source of current firmware in the stream. Video could also help you fix some issues that you might be experiencing with the new bug ridden GUI our friends at AT&T pushed out. Simply follow along with my instructions and information provided below if you need to update or want to try out the latest beta (CE).
First check what version you have prior to starting, you might be on the latest and not even know it. From the HR - Hit MENU - Settings - Info and test - Genie Info
CE (beta) software is generally released on Friday night and Saturday from 11 PM ET to 3:00 AM ET
Monday to Friday 3 AM ET to 7 AM ET is the latest release (0X1040), after 7 AM ET the software stream goes back to the old GUI. If you downgrade it will just upgrade again at some point and sometimes as early as the next day.
Note when upgrading to CE firmware (Friday and Sat 11 PM to 2:30 AM ET) carries risk and as with any beta it can either delete your recordings or brick the receiver. With that warning said that has not been experienced with any of the latest releases but again must warn you.

NOTE: The latest non CE software is only in the stream from Monday to Friday 3 AM Eastern to 7 AM Eastern. The current version is the new interface (GUI) 0X1040
During the daily daytime after 7 AM ET firmware Versions in the stream usually are the following and are the OLD GUI
3AM ET to 7 AM ET Monday - Friday as of 3-10-18 has the following
TIP: Quick version check (Hold down Select on the remote for about 10 seconds) and a system status menu will pop up.
System Slow even after a reboot?
Try this command from the search menu If you got this far down here is another secret command :)
Search for "CLEARMYBOX" from any client or HR and chose
This will clear out the data (not any recordings or settings)
WARNING: The Guide data will clear and download again, it will also clear all your 'ToDo's until the Guide gets repopulated which can take a few hours but usually much less. Note the HR receiver will reboot and will take a few minutes to come back up, just be patient.
This has helped many with slow scrolling in the guides or menus get back to normal. Also has helped a few other issues like freezing but mainly slowness. Sometimes just rebooting the HR once in a while clears that up too.
Which receivers will get the new GUI
HS17-100, HS17-500, HR44-200, HR44-500, HR44-700, HR54-200, HR54-500, HR54-700, H44-100, H44-500
Genie Mini models
C31-700, C41-100, C41-500, C41-700, C41W-100, C41W-500, C51-100, C51-500, C51-700, C61-100, C61-500, C61-700, C61K-700
TIP: If your RF remote remote doesn't allow for the command to work try an older IR DTV remote to force the update. Also setting your remote to IR from RF will work as well. You can set it by reading how to here https://www.youtube.com/redirect?redir_token=9kGR2NpCpmY2kjoFpSzaw9sl5ex8MTUyMDQyMzk4NUAxNTIwMzM3NTg1&q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aboutfact.com%2FDirecTV-Remote-Control-Doesnt-Work-IR-vs-RF-mode&event=comments
Also when rebooting, you can try hitting 000 then 0 2 4 6 8 has been said to work too if you are having issues.
How to upgrade the HS-17 - You have to unplug the wire for internet for a wired connection, then push the reset button and as soon as the white button comes on not until it comes on push add client on top until the white light blinks then let go and your off until it comes back up (finishes update).
