    L6.13 has started to spool to some ViP622/ViP722 customers. Please use this thread for discussing your experiences and bugs with this release.

    Release notes can be found here.

    Sorry, I don't have anymore details. I would just suggest trying and see. If you do test, please post your findings here so others know.

    Thank you.

    Is there any way to force my receiver to download L6.13 or do I just have to wait until E* is ready to send it to me?

    Of course, although I've been pretty late in the update queue

    You have to wait. Echostar targets ranges of receivers, until your receiver is in the ranges they are targeting you will not get it. You can not force it to update to software you are not targeted for.

    Sigh. I have ongoing communications with Dish and San Francisco's ABC station. I just sent the following email to both:
    So L6.13 didn't solve the intermittent audio dropout problem that we're also discussing on the Bay Area Folks: Audio drops on Fox and ABC thread. I'm still hoping that if they can focus on one data stream coming into their system they might find the problem.

    Strange that they're rolling out 6.13 in a phased fashion, as the last two releases were blasted out to anyone powering off their receiver.

    Currently I've got one 6.12 and one 6.13 722.

    Phased releases are typical. My guess is, this way if a problem is discovered post release they can stop the release until fixes can be made.

    The only time, lately, that I've seen a release spool to everyone at once is when it's a special release to fix a widespread issue.

    There was a bug where after going through some menus that have a preview window of the video stream, where the video stays at the size and location of the preview window even after exiting the menu. Basically most of your TV is a black screen with a small video window in the upper right hand corner of your TV.

    Also, if you used TV2 and changed ratios from Zoom to Widescreen, the same thing would happen but in the upper left. Really annoying.

    I got a replacement 622 four days ago (old one had no HDMI and off air tuner died. Everything was OK till this AM when, after about an hour of OK operation the box started endlessly rebooting. Power cord reset did not work. I don't know if the box got hit by new software last night or not and I can't check now cause it won't boot!
    Anybody else seen this? If not, I guess it's get another box.

    Just tested viewing 1080p VOD with my Sony KDS-R60XBR2. No dice. Still doesn't work. :confused: So what did they actually fix? Has anyone confirmed they were able to view I Am Legend in 1080p via E* VOD?

    I'll have to wait till my other 622 gets the upgrade before I can test my other display.

    Regarding my post above (#8), I sent my original and subsequent emails to Dish Quality and to Tech with a copy to ceo@. I then had interactions with Dish Quality providing technical information, including the one posted above (the others are posted on the Bay Area thread referred to above). This morning I received the standard email from Tech in response to my original email. The Tech form email is what I call the "busy work" email asking for information that they should be able to get off their own systems. Here is my response:

    I didn't receive 6.12 until last week. I even ran a few Check Switches and power cycled my 622. I guess my 622 is in the very last phase :(
