    Per your own post, the same APP files were targeted at S217.

    Pressed before posted - nothing ! Checked Apps - same 15 tiles. Can you tell ?

    EDIT:
    Found it after experimenting ... The H2k responding to the blue button very sloooow - the menu came after half minute of waiting. And yes, RedZone giving only a note to subscribe, nothing else what is expected.

    On the Blue Button I'm seeing a Red Zone choice and text saying to check back for the DISH Game Finder App.
    Perhaps it is subscription based?

    That's nice... but as this is the DBSTalk forum, it is not very helpful to know that there may or may not be additional information elsewhere.

    Dang it, my Joey that's linked to the S221 Hopper won't update to S271... :( I noticed that it hiccups a lot since the Hopper it's linked to got S221. They will probably go away if the Joey ever updates to S271...

    Other Hoppers are still on S217. Can't wait for them to update...

    This happened to my Joeys after a Hopper update. I went thru the Joey reset sequence that was posted in March when Joeys had problems. I think it was

    Unplug the joey from power.
    Unplug cable from joey.
    Plug joey into power.
    When it boots, put in standby (hit power button).
    Unplug from power.
    Connect coax cable.
    Plug into power.
    Wait for it to boot back up, it should boot back into standby mode.
    Unplug from power.
    Plug into power.

    This updated my Joys. Maybe it'll work for you.

    Does anyone know if the bug that tells what the recorded show says it is has been fixed? Highlight a recorded show and it says one thing which is the true show but once playing it and you hit info and it says another thing.

    I come to many forums to get as much information as I can about the hopper system I have. I didn't mean to offend anybody by mentioning a different site but if my input wasn't helpful neither was the two of yours, get over yourself. I have found that it is better have access to as much information as possible and being able to choose what is applicable to my needs, instead of having others make that decision for me.

    No offense to me...in fact I have been a slap down victim for daring to mention the "other place". "When in Rome"...I suppose....If you care about that type of thing.....:lol:

    I think you missed the point. There is nothing wrong with mentioning ANY site that has valuable information... but you aren't contributing to the discussion in a meaningful way just to say "Web site WWW is talking about this."

    You could just as well have said:

    "Dish Web site has info about this"
    "Joe's Web site is talking about this"
    "I read a book about this"

    The point being... IF you were elsewhere and found useful information about a topic... you should post something about that information here and then mention the site where you found the info.

    Ex:

    I was on satguys and someone there said to configure the xxx with the yyy and that worked... Here is where I read that [LINK].

    See the difference?

    Post meaningful information, add to the conversation, and link to any site you want... but just post that some other site is talking about something doesn't really help anyone.

    Now... let's get back to the topic of Hopper/Joey firmware.

    I'm sure you could have given me the exact same feedback in your first response minus the sarcasm and I would have taken it differently. Respect goes a long way when your trying to teach somebody how to do something the correct way, sarcasm not so much. I will make a concerted effort to give more information in the future or I will keep my thoughts to myself.

    I've also had this occur twice, apparently there's some sort of rivalry that went on before I even came to the scene but I never had this issue anywhere else so I'm not sure what the problem is.

    Did it update your Joeys immediately? If so, didn't work for me :( . Hopefully it'll update after the nightly reboot.

    I'm still missing kangaroos on some PTAT network series shows which should have them. CC also disappears at times, especially after 30 sec skip.

    Which ones? And did you have any signal outages at the time?

    Besides some shows being excluded... if there are any signal outages I believe that also breaks the Kanagaroo for that episode.
