    S2.08 for the Hopper and S260 for the Joeys should be seen tonight. The key feature will be the increase in user recording space. I received the following note from DISH:

    The expansion of user recording space on the hard drive. We have expanded it from 500 GB to 1 TB. So customers can now record up to 500 hours of HD content and 1,000 hours of SD content. At launch it was 250 hours of HD content and 500 hours of SD content.

    S208 here. Apps work, too. Was listening to my stations on Pandora a little bit ago. Weather channel app worked great, too.

    Edit: Checked the other Hopper. It's still on S207.

    Thanks, I see it happen YESTERDAY ... Perhaps it was sniper's download. Nothing spooling now from 110/119/129/118/61.5 regarding the version.

    Short DL windows (perhaps 1 hr long) and targeting a few DVRs.

    That means no one can get now. Perhaps midnight it could start spooling.

    [You can cut the version's string from your big picture and make it small - sometimes Mods against posting serial numbers of DVR]

    Looks like it was 'good intention' version spool note and it was happen yesterday and not for many.

    Nothing happen tonight. No S2.08
    But there are two new 'gamma' versions start spooling on 129W: ANA1 for 813 - post-S2.08 and BLA1 for 110 [263 boxes].

    I think this time it was not stick - I would bet we will see S2.09+ soon without deployment the interim very limited S2.08 version.

    Supposedly it was sent out to 500 boxes to see if everything in it was working right in the field. ie; letting a few beta test without knowing it. :)

    No need to worry - it wasn't real threat, just some old advise from past, when the number potentially could be used for different boxes. Today it is impossible. Cards are secure, FW is secure too.
    It's just bad taste from a past...

    Oh, that make us, customers, real guinea pigs ! :D

    Anyway, only one our member got it and they are spooling post-S2.08 gamma version now.
    I'm using gamma word to distinguish from real beta, when only boxes under NDA/contract getting it.

    Maybe I got it because I've had problems? I do like having Pandora and the apps section working, though.
