Check "Mention of SW ..." thread - some changes in L401 spool happened last night.
Does it matter if the 622 is in Single User or Dual User mode to accept the new software as long as the 622 is turned off? I have not received the upgrade yet and have had my 622 in Dual Receiver ode with another TV getting input from the modulator and didn't know if this affected the ability to get the software upgrade or not.
Did you check first if your R00 fall in that range ? Check in th other thread. Mode is irrelevant.
Ok, I'm dumb. I search for "Mention of SW" and I only get this thread and one other unrelated thread. What thread are you talking about?
I still don't have 4.01 and want it now because it fixes OTA issues here in Austin.
Ok, I found it.
Here I was looking in the wrong forum. THanks.
I guess they are really beginning to roll this out. I didn't check P. Smith's list out but today (Tuesday), sometime after this morning when I previously checked it, my second ViP622 received L401. This was not one that I gave to Dish for the early testing of the L401.
look at the end of the thread
No 4.01 this morning either.
Got home just now, read your post, forced a reset, but still no 4.01.
The waiting game continues.
Can someone make a sticky or something ?? You can't force a s/w update if your receiver isn't scheduled for one.
The answer is make sure both TV1 and TV2 are off. Then be patient.
It could be a few weeks ...
Apparently not for that long. From Dish Networks Tech Portal
"3/28/2007: 1000 Software Version L4.01 for ViP 622 DVR
Effective Thursday, March 29th, Engineering plans to spool the FULL PHASE of software version L4.01 for the ViP622DVR receiver. This is primarily a non-forced maintenance release available at ALL satellite locations.
At this time L4.01 will be the valid software version for the ViP 622 DVR."
So by Thursday, they mean 2am tonight? Or 2am Thursday night?
Either way that'll be a major big deal in my household, since right now we have to pick. Do we want to pick up every channel OTA except KTBC, or do we want to pick up KTBC and little else? I understand the 4.01 fixes this for Austinites so I'm pumped.
I've been looking for 4.01 and not getting it...a little disappointed. I checked my diagnostics and I noticed that the receiver has not dialed out since 3-8. I've been turning both tuners off at night. If the s/w IS available to me and I'm not getting it, could this be the problem?
Software doesn't come via the phone line. Once again, if your receiver isn't in the "list" of units scheduled to get it, you won't get it. You can't force it ! That said, your receiver should get it by the weekend now.
Is there any way to find out when you might receive the 4.01 update?
No and all indications are that if you haven't rec'd it already, you won't. There's more problems with L4.01 than they anticipated and L4.02 is on the way "soon". Don't ask when "soon" is, please. Your receiver will get it when it's scheduled to get it. You cannot force it if it's not scheduled. You cannot call Dish and ask them to update your receiver.
On that note I have another question...
I've been holding back on asking this because I didn't want to get eAttcked )), but how do I sign-up to become a beta tester for their firmware revisions?
There is no where to "sign up". How they pick customers is a good question.... Heh, they may have someone with accounts here or at satguys and they simply PM people. The average customer doesn't care anything about the software running on the box so long as "it works", so cold-calling a customer who happens to have a 622 or whatever model they need testers on would likely get a lot of "not interested" responses.
I'm a nerd, so I'm always beta testing software at work.
That would be me, from time to time, when I'm asked to suggest additional testers that I think would be a good addition.
But, it won't do you any good to PM or email me anything because the users that I think would make good testers are the ones that impress me with their postings online in one way or another. I then contact those people to see if they're interested.
