    The UTV will not work on this bird.
    DTV just replaced my 2 UTVs for free with 2 DirecTivos.
    They didn't even take the UTV units
    After all was done I tried the UTV and it in fact did not get the locals.
    They did the upgrade for free because I had just moved and was subscribed to the locals before moving, so the equipment upgrade was not by choice.

    thanks for the first hand info

    I found this to be a fact
    shame is the Tivo wont work either without updated software
    so they could update the UTV software also but chose not to

    It's more likely that they want to phase out the UTV units. In order to get anything done with them, they have to bug microsoft about it. Since microsoft has all but abandoned everything except their media center PC in the TV game, its likely that they probably aren't going to make anymore major changes, such as adding support for the newer multiswitches that are required for those extra birds.
    Before PMing me: Iím not your personal tech support. If you have a question, ask in public so I don't have to repeat if somebody else asks. If you want images or slices, use emule. I will ignore all support PMs.
