    Has it hit the wild?

    Whenever someone reports actually getting firmware I like to sticky the threads. I don't usually sticky threads until then in case it turns out to be a firmware that doesn't get rolled out to the masses.

    So S237 loaded to one of my two Hooper Jr.

    I thought I had seen this thread, but it took a bit to find it.

    Haven't had any time to see what changed.

    I believe the main visible changes were ptat networks on the tv viewing status screen 24/7, hot keys added to the view banner, and I believe the inactivity standby default is now longer than 2 hours. I believe there are a bunch of behind the scenes fixes and stability improvements.

    Am I misreading? I see all receiver numbers, but the prior software fields do not include the last public release ... so I'd read this as "all new customers".

    You're right, I didn't pay attention to the range "S237-S237" and totally followed the SN range. Need check if there other spool (not from 61.5W) what cover "10k" claim.

    Nope. His words means nothing if no such spool exist.

    Yeah well I don't know all about how it works (or claim to either) but it's a fact that "some guy" knows what he's talking about and would not make "claims" that weren't true.

    He is hear-say guy (nothing else to present him as absolute reliable source; perhaps he is mr scott from other site ? :D ), these reports above taken from real stream, and its detailed info giving to you enough to say what is spooling and to whom.

    At some point the bickering about who knows what needs to end. That point might as well be now.

    This thread is intended to discuss the new software ... if anyone here has it and is willing to share their observations. This thread is not intended to discuss members of our forum - positively or negatively. Lets move on ...
