    The old receivers will probably be sent a new card when they are activated (and will not be usuable until the new card is inserted)

    I haven't seen if it has the Picture in guide - I hated that on my 4700 so I turned that feature to full screen guide. It might actually be a useful feature on a 501 or 721, but for non-dual tuners - it's worse than useless, IMHO.

    I don't see the picture in guide as an option on my 2700 . Which suits me just fine.

    They mean the same as picture in guide in which is also referred to as PIP but dont confuse it with PIP where you watch two shows at once in which the 721 does this.

    So - Picture in guide (AKA Program in guide, AKA PIP) is at 2700/2800/3700s now - after this new software upgrade or not?

    Anyone?

    Jacob - thanks for clarification btw

    Personally I would not expect the Picture in Guide for the 2700, 2800, 3700 receivers due to the lack of memory.

    Dish 500 Card Ready is what the main reason for this software upgrade is. They just happened to put the local channel mapping in them at the same time as well.

    oh-oh, my fault, sorry :)

    was going to answer your post in a simular manner as you did: (example: IN A SIMULAR MANNER AS YOU DID) - lol,

    But before doing so, went one more time over the posts on Page 1, and found you say that (in one of the posts):
    "I don't see the picture in guide as an option on my 2700...."

    Sorry again (i missed that one)

    GETTING OLD OR WHAT :)

    P.S. scooper - you're off the hook i guess :hurah:

    Sorry for jumping on you like this - but that WAS the 3 or 4th time you asked the same question, each time answered by someone - it's one of my pet peeves. <sigh>

    We have a 2800. It now does have channel 2,4,5,7 etc. for locals but as far as I can see has no option for picture in guide. We were not aware of the new channels capability until I just read it here.

    read above in the thread,
    I think it was reported by some that 6000 became "Dish 500 card ready" (Green writing in Sys Info screen)

    I haven't been able to load the 778 into my 6000. Are they still testing?
