My hopper usually updates at 1:38 am but since I'm usually still awake at that time, it skips it. When I turn the receiver off, it updates the guide within a minute, but it takes a good 30 minutes before it checks the software (or whatever it's doing) and reboots.
The problem is my hopper makes a really annoying, really loud trilling noise, and I have to unplug it to be able to sleep. When I'm done watching TV and want to go to bed, I don't want to have to wait a half an hour before I can unplug it. Before this last big update, it used to ask me if it could update itself, which worked fine for me since it was immediate. I could press "yes" and then go do something else for a few minutes.
I'm hoping there's some sort of a setting or secret squirrel button combo or something that will force the receiver to update itself.

My Hopper 3 has not updated since November, 2017. (It's May, 2018).
Tech support has not been able to resolve the issue.
I have now lost "Manage My Account" functionality because of this issue.
