In my case I have a My Book HD for DVR which has been working fine since the first year the 630 came out though I don't use a battery backup. Both EHD and 630 are now working fine though I watched 2 NFL games last night with lots of skips forward and back, fast forward and even slow motion without problems. I will do some recording and see what happens. Since I have done nothing new to correct the problem (except to delete all recurring recordings) I expect further problems. We shall see---

Then disconnected everything and restarted with the external HD still disconnected (this is what I had to do right after the download) which finally brought it back to life. I deleted a manual recurring timer which seemed to be giving it trouble plus all other recurring timers and connected the EHD and did a front panel reset. It now seems to be working fine but I think I may need to do a factory reset some time.

One would think that the first thing the CSR would recognize when it wouldn't tune to ch 350 is that it was on the advanced lineup, but I guess she was so anxious to stop the criminals with receivers "outside the service area" that the obvious did not occur to her.
I have had some recording problems since the update. Strangely, only the west coast U.S. nets, and only after 11pm EST. What happens is short segments of black, 5-15 seconds, during the late-night talk shows. It may have something to do with poorly placed substitutions, but I have the old LNB, and try to record from the CDN channel to avoid such carelessness. But that’s my only problem

I activated a HDDSR 605... The guide WILL NOT load no matter what... Current firmware version on the box is 04.06, Target version is 00.51.01.

Can it be that the firmware version is too old and there is no guide in the stream that is compatible .. so the box needs to update to the Target version 1st before I get a loaded guide?

Thanks for any info or suggestions.

It is possible that is the case, however the guide took longer to load with older firmware versions. If the receiver has been targeted you should be able to force the download but that option may only be available in a more recent firmware version. A call to Shaw Direct should be able to get them to force the download as well. Good luck.

Thanks for the response .. yeah its been hours ( 6 to be exact) and nothing, just states "The program guide is still loading. Please try again later."

Yes, I was looking for that option to force the download, but you are correct this current firmware is too old and that option is not available.

Guess I have to be patient and see what it does in the early morning hours.

Thanks again!

Hi again, just an update

Last night @ 2:10 am the HDDSR 605 downloaded the target software like a champ, ALL is good now.

what is the latest software version for the 630. Mine is 51.01, but in the online manual for the new 830, it show 60.52

do these receivers have different software versions. Beside the obvious like the wifi , do both receivers have the same main features or what are the major differences if any

For my 630, I have 51.01
For my 600, I have 51.01 the same as the 630

I have not looked at the online manual for the 830, but from past experience Shaw does not keep their consumer documentation up to date.
Check to see the date published on the 830 manual if available.
