    check post#11 how-to-parse the complicated filter
    - how often ? no rules - dish mostly doing that basing on feedback and how are severe bugs in each new version; it could be canceled and new one will come later
    - can't answer that question ... totally depend on my mood :)
    - reading bytes and bits from sat streams

    Sometimes they do short time spool midnight - it's hard to catch if you are not watching the FW streams 24/7.

    That sounds like beta, no production sw. No one besides internal would get those labels, everyone will get s238.

    If I read Mr Smith correctly, the "bad news" would be that DISH has gone back to beta labels in testing. That does not mean that S238 will not roll out to customers as DISH works on "the next thing". But it is nice to see software start to roll to the masses before DISH moves on.

    Test groups always receive beta labels and then the final public version prior to public release. This isn't anything new or different from how it always goes.

    I've posted this issue in the S304 thread, but since it is related to the Joey I'll post here as well.

    My problem is that the Save Series command in PTAT does not work properly when done from a Joey (S286) along with a Hopper w/sling (S304). The Save Series only saves the current episode and does not set a recurring timer. The Save Series command does work properly when done from the Hopper w/sling directly.

    This is not an issue with the Joey (S286) and a regular Hopper (S234).

    Happy to report the freezing/pixilization when using red button to change channels during PTAT on the Joey that started with S234 has been fixed with S238 :)

    Nobody is commenting on the added menus/option reminders "TV viewing status" (red button) and "Apps" (blue button) on the top banner?
    Not sure what to make of those, personally I don't see why they'd be there. But don't bother me either.

    Those buttons worked before now they just show there. It also says under tuner status "watching" and "watching PIP" for 2nd tuner.

    The features were there before being shown on the banner. Perhaps being on the banner more people will know that they are there.

    I generally do not use the red button ... I just change channels like on a normal receiver. If all the tuners are in use the red button screen appears. I knew of the blue button but have forgotten that it is there.

    I would think the screensaver reminder is more invasive into customer's brain to teach about the colored button's assignment

    I like the red button because it helps me use the swap button better. I don't mind it showing in the banner it's only there for a few seconds. I can imagine it will help Dish in the long run or they wouldn't have bothered making the change. It wouldn't surprise me if many Hopper customers still don't know all the features.

    I like and use the red, blue and yellow buttons. All make for a more convenient operation.

    Other than the addition to the banner the only thing I've
    noticed in the week I've had 238 is my Seagate HD no longer frequently disappears.
