>Yea, not really a Hughes problem, just venting at my own stupidity for letting it happen.
You're being too hard on yourself sgoshe--I don't know how you might have seen that coming, unless as you said up front the TV has a way to turn-off automatic updates. My many iGizmos download updates in the background and I can't find any way to stop this!
I wonder what earlier-Gen HN customers are suffering these days--any of these updates would have been impossible to get with the older system (200MB/day for mine).
If HN engineers aren't working feverishly to add some kind of download-tracking mechanism to their modems' firmware, this board is going to choke to death on complaints from customers about bandwidth.
