    Supposedly there is a S219 out now that is only being downloaded to Dish employee Hoppers. Joey is also reported as S269. This "employee" claims that there are decent stability improvements, however no new features. I suspect that we won't get S219 until after the Olympics are over.

    Your source is wrong:
    - new FW for 813/110 spooling now:

    S220 :'AAA1'-'AUA1';'S040'-'S219'
    S220 :'1[A-D0-2]1[A-B0-1]';'AAA1'-'AUA1','S040'-'S220'
    S270 :'Model_ZA_Slot_0x001_ID_1LTC.tar.gz';'AAA1'-'AUA1','S040'-'S220'
    S270 :'X060_signed.tgz';'AAA1'-'AUA1','S040'-'S220'

    for 2400+ devices (hard to believe all of them dish employees)

    DISH has ~21,000 employees?

    I believe it would be fair to say the people getting the new software know they are getting the software. :)

    Notice that your list shows S219 as a previous SW. So it probably does exist. I dunno. I took the info with a grain of salt but I was just passing it along.

    Don't assume too much - that ranges usually cover from factory to previous version.

    Adding to that (if you are not aware) version number is UNIQUE for ALL models. You will see S1.18 as fall in the range, when it's for ViP922 only.

    10% of them might be plausible ... especially if there were, uncounted as DISH employees, contractors who would also have such equipment.

    But what I stated stands ...
    It would be fair to say the people getting the new software know they are getting the software.

    (You probably just missed S219.)

    Yeah something about this "source" seems kinda believable, but he hasn't really proven anything about whether or not he really is an employee... I actually hope he's telling the truth because then at least the employees can be guinea pigs instead of us paying customers...

    How his is telling truth, if the FW already is S2.20/S2.70 ?

    If he saw the number/version he should know when it was downloaded - it's next to the version number !

    Any chance that you simply missed the stream for S219/S269 ? Or is infallibility now one of your traits? :D

    (And what does this have to do with S216/S217/S268 other than to note that DISH is, as always, looking to the next version?)

    For me, it's another sign of recently 'invented' method of building consumer's FW: "push-it-out-of-the-door-our-customers-would-test-it".
    It was that way before CES, it was same before deployment of 813/110 and still the same today. :(

    Know any customers with S219? Yesterday you denied it's existence and today you complain about it being pushed to customers?
    Know any customers reporting S220 on their receivers?

    Eah ... That's was bold attempt to switch the theme. No need to bring particular gamma version in the broad statement.
    ANY FW version last years are fall into the category:"push-it-out-of-the-door-our-customers-would-test-it".

    And you as a [old] Mod here knew that perfectly... The local [and not] sub-forums full of the complains. Not a surprise ? Heh.

    I have no complaints on any of the software issues. The only problem I have has was a bad duo node when I did the original install.. And I blew out a second duo node when I hooked up the HIC wrong.. But that was a user error..LOL I would rather make those mistakes on my own system then on a customers anyways..:hurah:

    Turns out the whole "employees get it first" thing was false. The releases are just like every other release where a small number get it first then if it makes it the rest of us get it. So looks like paying customers are still beta testers.

    S219 was dumped after issues popped up with it. S220 has gone out to the same receivers that received S219. If all goes well S220 may be released to the wild later this week.
