    Thanks for the info - after my 721 finishes recording (2 movies), I'll run the update manually.

    I knew someone would ask that today. :)

    No idea when L1.05 is coming, who knows maybe we will get it before the tech chat. :)

    Well I hated to ask, after everything you've been through with L1.04. Guess I've finally arrived as a true satellite techno-nerd, when I realized last night during the election coverage, I was more interested in my L1.04 upgrade which will really do nothing visible for me. Kept checking system info. and software menus.

    Is the count-up on the elapsed time on tyhe 721 supposed to keep resetting to zero during software upgrade process?

    My counter goes from :00 to :30 seconds and then back down to 00 again. Sometimes it does not even reach :30. It has been "upgrading" since 11:20am Pacific time.

    Just wondering.

    Unplug your 721 for a few minutes, then plug it back in. It should then take the download. :)

    Yeah the software is refed every so often, so when you unplug you need to wait for the next starting point to jump in and download. :)

    Thanks Everyone for your comments.

    As you know I don't make a single cent here at DBSTalk. I am just a volunteer (Chris owns the board) I am happy to be able to lend my talent (if I can call it that :lol:) and support to help Chris in making DBSTalk the Best Board around

    As far as supporting DBSTalk again the money does not go to me, instead ALL the money goes to pay for our server co-location and bandwidth. Because of the generous support of some of our members we have been able to keep DBSTalk 100% Ad free. We plan on never having any type of commercial ads or pop-ups here.

    People who have donated are called Gold Members, which give them access to a special message area, and as of late our Gold Members have been helping us with some big projects which we are working on, as well as helping us beta test a new piece of software we hope to release to all in December. :)

    If you donated, thank you, if you haven't, oh well... :) I thank you for being here anyways, it makes me feel good that you like DBSTalk enough to make us a regular stop on your browsing schedule. :)

    I would like to thank my contacts who have been providing me the information which I pass along to you guys, I think these people understand that people are intrested in the 721. I find it refreshing that they do read all the 721 topics and take each comment good or bad to heart. Ultimately I believe that Dish Network wants the 721 to be the best product it can be.

    I know a few occations they have written software updates only to see suggestions here and scrap what they just wrote to implement the idea that was mentioned here.

    You guys provide valuable feedback to the 721 team, and I think they would like the thank you too. :D

    Now if you will excuse me, I am gonna go check to see if my 721 got the update. :D
