Yep ... might be better to go with the flow.


Sometimes, that flow is a tsunami.

Yes, Tulsa, I remember ... but it'll never get fixed if I stick my head in the sand or unplug my 622. At some point, we just ... [ready for this?] ... gotta believe. :D

That's not a rumor, but pure fact. Better if you cite your source.

We once had a source for who was getting software updates but he stopped posting that information. He still posts other stuff.

Well, my 722 is running just fine right now.
I expect at least one big problem with this next update.
They need to do some major work on the EHD interface. I don't expect to see that even though they have the code. Make it like the My Recordings on the internal drive, please.
They have never addressed the so called trick play stuff; the 4X FF is still jerky. When you pause and select frame-by-frame, there's no telling where you'll end up. Trying to pause and frame-by-frame in a sporting event is a thing of the past. They screwed that up several updates ago. Trying to back out of some of the menus drops you into places you don't expect. Error recovery isn't handled very well at all. If OTA signal is lost, hey, let's just dump ALL the buffers!
Sorry to sound so jaded but I don't remember an update that didn't cause problems for somebody. Usually, these surface the day of the update, so that gives me some idea of the testing they do. Regression testing isn't part of their vernacular.
Of course, this is just my opinion, and you know what they say about opinions.

Yeah, found more interesting to watch new satellites, then do that reports.
Other ppl doing it with a passion and dedication.

You can set the Inactivity Standby to Disable but the only way to defeat the Updates is to schedule it at the same time as an Auto-Tune or Recording. If you want to get a guide update, perform a check switch. I don't think it checks for firmware downloads at that time. My receiver is never turned off. As for power outages, you should have UPS protection anyway.

Upon backing out of a completed check-switch, the receiver will reboot, and then update if it's been spooled.

One of my 622's now has 5.10. No time to check much before I left for work, but I did notice some of the menus have changed.

You don't know how the SW spooling, you can't discuss facts - look at old threads, plus you don't know what was a status of the your other 622.
Also, never check switch force to reboot DVR. You're better stay with facts, not rumors.
As to the facts - last night Dish added to the group of DVR new range and perhaps your device fall into. Ask RandallA.

Trust me, I'd prefer to cite the source, but if I did, I'd probably be banned here! :lol:

I called it a rumor because, AFAIK, no one had reported actually receiving the download at the time of the post. I know that the source in question (RandallA) is reliable.

I'm really not trying to pick a fight, and from now on I'll just stay away from these software update threads. Sorry if I ruffled any feathers.

No, that's not going to turn into fight - just a few thing twisted here: politics, missing credits and credibility. Info from RandallA based on same type of data what JohnH used for his uplink posts, but no one classified it as a rumor.

If people are receiving it it is time for release notes and discussion ... in the appropriate forums. :)

I wouldn't wait for that if taking in account new card deployment and Dish secrecy about encryption tidbits.
