    Got it this AM. One thing I see is that it fixed a bug in CC. CC now works on both active tuners.

    It takes a while for Dish to roll out the sw. S237 was halted due to issues. S238 is just now beginning to appear. It too may be in limited roll out at first.

    I got it on one hopper and two joeys. 2nd hopper still on 234. When using the DVR button on the Joeys am I supposed to be able to access both hoppers from a Joey like I can from the hopper?

    Yes but if the hopper sw versions are different like yours, you may run into this problem.

    Are you a robot or computerized human being? just kidding, no but seriously all I had to know was SW version for hopper or Joey not all that jibber jabber coding like a PC error or BSOD.

    Sorry, if it's about your grade :), I'm expecting your and other non-techie guys will just skip it. Especially, if knowing such info posting here for many years.

    PS. The filter/script is written on "natural" language for DVR's Linux program, by engineers.

    OK.
    Code:
    PID=08E5h [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]-> PID is sub-stream ID what allow to select packets belong to the FW[/COLOR]
     DownloadID: C4TC [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]--> unique ID for each FW spool[/COLOR]
     Upgrading FW :
     S238 :'AAA1'-'BDA1','S040'-'S237' [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]-> 1st part of new version: applied to old versions, ranges concatenated by OR [/COLOR]
     S238 :'1[A-D0-2]1[A-B0-1]''AAA1'-'BDA1','S040'-'S238' [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]-> 2nd part of new version: applied to old BootStrap IDs AND FW ranges concatenated by OR[/COLOR] 
     New FW: 'S238'
     List of BootStraps and BuildConfigs and SN: [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]-> final filter by BS IDs, BC IDs and serial numbers [CAIDs][/COLOR]
     '1...' & 'NA[CFJ].': {XiP813} [524 devices]

    Wish this forum had "likes." :)

    I already knew all that, after seeing your posts through the months, but that should help others figure it out that care to know :D .

    I've got the 238 update and I'm still having the persistent, roving "Your remote is set up to control a different device" message at times. I haven't figured out how to fix it. I tried pressing the DVR button, which of course brings up the DVR menu. I've tried powering it off and on using the power button on the remote (which of course has to mean I'm in Sat mode on the remote, right?!?!?) to no avail. Very annoying. After a minute of button presses, I can usually make it go away, but I wish they would fix this.

    I don't know anything about these "spools" but If I understand this correctly R1881149252-R1881356492 is the range of receivers that are currently able to download S238. Thanks for the info, I really want 238 on my other Hopper. So badly that every morning I wake up and the 1st thing I do is check the s/w version (wife thinks I'm nuts). At least now I know I'm not in the range so I don't have to check for awhile.

    How often does Dish refresh these spools?

    Will you continue to update this post with the current spool info?

    Just out of curiosity, how do you know this?
