    Is it possible to designate the time an update is downloaded??? Reason is I have a 24 hour MB download limit(satellite system), except between the hours of 2-5am, central time. Don't want to have to get up in the middle of the night to run a download!!!!! Thanks, 'MO:confused:

    Not that I know of, I'm afraid you'll have to get up yourself and start the download. In my position, that'd be quite easy, seeing as I'm nocturnal most of the time :D
