    I have a 4900 with Dish Home and find it to be so slow, it is not usable.

    My two 501s don't seem to have the upgrade yet.

    I expect it is a memory issue and with the 501 storage, should be much faster once they get it.

    Does anyone else have the same problem with the non-HD receivers?

    3900 - Unusable. The games time out before I've had a chance to figure out how to use them.

    Dish Home on my 3900 (Upgraded 3800) runs fine. There is a slight delay when changing apps but it hasn't been that big of an issue. The only issue I have been having is Instant Weather resetting the box (both from Dish Home and channel 9500) on some occassions. FYI - All of the games except the free demo timeout after about 30 seconds. There is a subscription fee ($4.99/month IIRC) that will stop the timeouts on the rest. Noticed this morning that Carrot Mania is no longer the freebie, the bowling game is now.

    The 4900 is probably slower than the 301, 521, etc. because it has less memory and not as fast of a processor.

    3900 (upgraded) runs...but slowish...

    and for me Dish Home is not a biggy - so instead of 119 and 110 at 3900, i put 119 with 61.5 - hehe

    Runs better...
