    Both Joeys I have are on 261, now.

    Are there release notes specific to S209 and/or 261 (note that I've read the 208 release notes)?

    With these "limited releases" I expect we'll see a lot of duplication in the version lists. With S207 in the main stream anything newer should be considered "limited" until it hits the main stream.

    One of my Hoppers picked up 210 last night, the other remains at 209. Both Joeys went to 262.

    No noticeable differences at first glance but I didn't dig before leaving for work.

    One thing I noticed that was fixed in the 209 firmware is the loud volume when you first turn on the hopper. No more having to change the channel for the volume to return to normal.

    I've had the opposite effect. Sometimes mine is low.

    So far, S2.09/S2.61 are current national FW.

    S2.10/S2.62 spooling for limited number of boxes (300).

    Gamma test (post S2.11) is ARA1/BPA1 - 100 boxes. It has some surprises for Team Summit.

    I think I hit a bug with 209. My box just upgradeded a couple of days ago and I went into the iPad app to add a new timer and only about half the timers actually on the Hopper showed up on the app. I never had this problem with 207 but it seems to be happening with 209. What the iPad app and the DVR itself show as Timers and Scheduled do not agree.

    Now that I've got 2.09 software my green button when pushed says this is not an active feature. Does anyone else have this problem? I'm having a number of problems even before the latest software. Some days when first turning on hopper I get the gray box where it is checking the tuners. Example it says tuner 1. 1 of 2 then 2 of 2. This does it with all 3 tuners. I have also had which I understand has happened with the 922 and 722 receivers where for no reason I can only access about 2 1/2 days of the guide. They are sending me another hopper because of the guide problem but will I gain anything by going to all the hassle of swapping it out. I don't think this is an easy job. Any advise?

    The green key was disabled in S209 (see post 65 above).

    What is "Team Summit"? Is that a group of paid testers that you mentioned a while back? Just wondering. What are the surprises? Just wondering again...

    So far, S210 seem solid. I have noticed that reverse skips seem to skip more. In previous versions, including whatever was on my 722, backward skips were a fraction of forward skips. Now, it seems they're pretty much equal or even slanted a bit towards the reverse skip.

    Team Summit is an annual meeting of DISH employees, contractors and others where they discuss where the company is and where it is going including product introductions and demonstrations.

    The "surprises" are likely code changes showing DISH employees improvements and upgrades that are coming later this year. Things that are not ready for release but that DISH or Echostar are working on.

    I thought it was 5 to 7 seconds back and 30 seconds forward? Works for me....
