    L629 was loaded on my 622 this morning...so maybe it's really starting to spool.

    I did not see any menu changes....was looking for the audio-leveling option, but nada.

    Will see tonight if this version fixes the bug introduced in L627 that caused a black screen to appear when the unit was turned on during a timer recording in process. This is the bug that could be overcome by using the PIP controls...

    Pressing the guide button multiple times no longer cycles immediately between all channels, all subscribed, all HD, etc. It now pops up a menu with these options. This might be more newbie-friendly, but is otherwise a bad change IMO. Not that I do this frequently, but it's still an annoying change.

    This has been an option available for a while... and you can configure the receiver either to display the menu OR cycle through the lists. I forget the exact menu sequence to get there, though...

    I think what happens is that sometimes firmware updates "reset" settings to defaults, but you should still be able to change this setting back to disable the menu again.

    So it just happens that my reciever number sequence is not on the list. So any updated listing, or as I know it will be posted when available? I'm anxious and scared at the same time. But I am over the 627 issues and could go for some new ones.

    I did confirm that L629 fixed the problem that started with L625...the black screen when turning the receiver on while a recording is in progress. Now works normally and no longer need to use the PIP controls to return the receiver to normal operational mode.

    Well, it was a "tongue-in-cheek" comment...after all, the original post announcing the spooling was two weeks old and no one had reported seeing it since that post.:rolleyes:

    I have one of the original 622's that first came out and have always been in the first tier of receiving updates...seems for some reason Dish started, then stopped the distribution for almost two weeks...:confused:

    If you post your Sysinfo screen I will tell you if first batch cover it or not;
    I didn't check perhaps new spool came last week.

    My 622 is R0075085113-29.

    My receiver has always been updated within 2 days after the spool starts, which led me to believe Dish stopped spooling for a longer-than-normal time period.:)

    Not enough, need more info - bootstarp version, build config id also.

    Actually, for sure your R00 doesn't belong to that first batch - check by yourself in first post.

    "My receiver has always been updated within 2 days after the spool starts, which led me to believe Dish stopped spooling for a longer-than-normal time period" sorry, past spools doesn't count here - each new one has OWN criteria.

    Thanks for the offer, but it is not that important to me...I'm sure others would appreciate you posting receiver numbers that are scheduled for the update.

    The main point I wanted to make is this roll-out is different from the previous 5 or 6 updates. After posting news of the initial spooling on the previous 5 or 6 updates, many, many members here would report that they have it within the first week of roll-out. This roll-out took almost 2 weeks before very many started to see the update.

    This just led me to believe maybe Dish has taken a more cautious, and slower, approach to the update, just to make sure some other major bug is not introduced before rolling it out to the masses...

    As one of their original 622 beta-testers I used to get an early update and an email from Dish asking for certain features or options to be tested...they probably are still doing this with newer receivers and select customers...which, I think, is a good thing...better to roll it out slowly than have a buggy update released to the multitudes..

    Got it. Don't know what it does, but I got it. It's a bit strange to get an update so early in the spooling process. My 622 is usually queued 1 1/2 to 2 weeks into it.

    What part of 14 days doesn't fall late in the 1-1/2 to 2 week range?

    If the spooling just got started, then my 622 got it much faster than usual. If, OTOH, it started long ago, then I'm right on time.

    Simple enough for ya? :rolleyes:

    I was surprised to find I got L629 on my 622 already. Usually I am one of the last to get an update.

    Looking at the most recent information that P Smith offered yesterday in post #14, it would appear that pretty much all ViP622s and ViP722s should be updated/updating now.

    My ViP622 wasn't in the first post, but it did appear in the subsequent regex (REGular EXpression).
