You want to be careful about this; something we observed on Series1 DirecTV units:
Back when the transition was being made from 2.5.2 to 3.1, the upgrades were proceeding very slowly. We still had a few units in our labs that were at 2.5.2 even after many of our other units had already upgraded to 3.1. We always knew that putting a version of the software that was earlier on a unit (ie 2.01 on a unit that comes from the factory with 2.5.2 on it) definitely caused problems. We also knew that installing 3.0 on a standalone that had never downloaded it and still had 2.5.1 on it was also not a problem. HOWEVER, putting 3.1 on a DirecTiVo with 2.5.2 IS a problem if the unit has never downloaded it before -- ie the unit will actually try to download the previous version of the software (2.5.2), go into a pending restart, and unsuccessfully install 2.52; ie it will be in a pending restart mode and will reboot itself every day.
In any case, we don't have a situation here where we have (2) of any type of unit, one of which has already downloaded 3.1.1c and one which hasn't, so we can't actually test to see if its safe to put 3.1.1c on a unit if it hasn't already downloaded it.
Not sure if anyone has anything revealing to say here, but if you don't, I'd recommend NOT putting 3.1.1c on the unit unless it is known to not cause a problem.
Hope that helps...
