1-3 days for the routine SAC hit to update your receiver? Couldn't you also get it quicker by requesting a package change, swapping one of your optional program groups? Wouldn't that cause an immediate update?

TMK, there is no public passcode for the memory edit screen.

As for what is there, nearly everything that is kept when power is removed, and is not directly security related.
Mostly it would be channel maps, TZ settings, and user preferences. I would think the guide flag and geographic exclustion code is in the security chip.

For the "hit" carousel, IME it used to occur every day during late evening, although my 301 took a couple days to get its hit last time I put it in service from storage. A packagae change might trigger a hit.

Nope. A factory reset will.

I don't believe that.

A factory reset is not capable of deleting a purchases.
It may remove them from being displayed.

Only a reportback that completes successfully can removed purchases fromthe box.

It's all part of the security of the DCII system.

ARR, that is what I meant. I think the poster just wants to "hide" some PPV purchases. My old 500 still shows the few PPVs I orderd years ago when I had PPV credits. It would be nice to have an option of deleteing reported PPVs from showing up in the purchase history.

Thumbs up Agreed

All those XXX PPV I was FORCED to order during Field Testing of Parental Controls.
Pretty embarassing.
