Doug McDonald sent me a serial cable and CD-ROM that he obtained from 
Samsung to update the software in the SIR T-151.  Yes indeed they are, but 
the will not be over the air automatic software updates.  There are too many 
manufacturers and too many broadcasters, with too much potential liability 
for that to happen with anything other than a closed system like the 
subscription side of USDTV.
