    More likely than not that's it. I'm still hoping that NBR will come down the pipe someday but I'm not holding my breath.

    Any reports from the wild on folks actually getting this. I'm not confident any more about the Dish software chart accuracy. The Tech Portal doesn't show any releases for this week at all.

    hehe - "not going wide-spread" means exactly that, Mikey.. - it's "not going wide-spread" .. and more likely is very limited still (only small selective bunch gets it probably for now)

    P. Smith - any data from stream - which ones getting it? ;)

    Ask for that new guy@scott site. I don't see any new reports where I usually saw them.

    It has been too long - but IIRC the last time they had the mosaic (elections) the audio still didn't work right on 501's. Something worth fixing if they have not done so by now.

    I'm not holding my breath for NBR. It was mentioned on the Tech Chat as 'by the end of the year' but we have heard that before with progressively later dates that it would be done by. (Although my favorite date was "we already have that, don't we" from one of the first Charlie Chats this year.)

    I have it. No new Dish Home. Not sure what it did. Maybe added satellite 129 if it wasn't there already.

    129 was added without a software upgrade.

    Yes, I checked my 510 which is still at 301 and it does have 129.

    Yes, 129 was already there. I got the new 3.02 software upgrade and can't find anything new or different. Hopefully, there isn't a new bug with this one.

    Guys, it was explained - NIT spooling at each transponder of all satellites and include the 129 now. Latest software just using the dynamic table for show satellites, before it was static icons. Nothing to do with satellite itself, exclude the bar :).

    I don't have any problem with you; I did attempt to discuss that row data what you're posting, but got your attitude. Now it's meaningless to dispute - I prefer do not touch your info anymore.
    As to your quote - I did a reply to a question about software, not your previous data, thought you could contribute real info about versions.
