TiVo Wins Permanent Injunction Against EchoStar

Cobain Re:DISABLE YOUR AUTOMATIC UPDATES (437 comments)

Please mod the parent down as it is far from informative. You certainly wont be able to go a year without updating your software as another poster wrote. I work for EchoStar. They have two types of software updates they spool. One is a partial update, the other is a forced update. The forced update is downloaded and installed when your receiver is powered off. All the automatic software update function does is power your receiver off at what ever time you tell it to. All of you who are thinking well I will just never turn it off will have all of your authorizations expire within 30 days (i.e. won't be authorized to watch channels). I'm sorry to say it but even my 625 will be dead if EchoStar decides not to pay TiVo. I urge everyone to call customer service and let them know what you think, but please understand with everyone calling you will be waiting on hold to talk to some poor person who has no control of the situation so don't yell at them or their supervisor.
