New Dishplayer software Version 5720 spooling now!
Posted 19 April 2002 - 01:37 PM
Right now all channels are broadcast everywhere in CONUS. So that if you live in Detroit you could theoretically receive SF, Austin and Boston stations.
With E7 and E8 there will be spot beams aimed at different sectiosn of the country. The frequenceies used on the Spot beam covering Detroit will be reused in other spot beams but tehere will be different programming.
This will be used largely for locals. DTV already has one spot beam bird up there.

No damage, but I prefer that it stay off to rest & cool off!
Never happened before this "last upgrade".

1) While flipping thru channels, unit powered down/up when going thru the 800x channels (west-feed locals)
2) After changing channel , I waited for the picture to appear- the instant that it did, I hit the RECORD button. The picture then went black and stayed black, but hitting OPTIONS revealed that it thought it was recording.
(I don't recall what I did to fix this other than hitting STOP. I think I then changed the channel down/up and got a picture again and successfully began to RECORD after that.)
I will be emailing E* with the above info.
My config: 7200 with 80GB disk drive, 119W feed only - no switches.

I ran a second switch check. This tike it said it would take 8 minutes (which others have said is part of the update) and it completed normally.
Any chance I did not have the update till yesterday?

(I thought they pulled the plug for legal reasons, they mentioned someone was trying to sick a lawyer on them for deleting one of their flame posts)
My 2 DB's have been MUCH more stable since the upgrade. I was using the 32768 code at least 3 times a week on each machine until this download (I look at 3 birds through an SW64 for those keeping score of the bug triggers). ZERO problems since the download (wait, I'm lying it lost all of my 61.5 channels 48 hours later, but a new "check switch" cleared it up without codes). No reboots. No pink screens of death. No missed recordings. No 1 minute recordings. No blinkouts.
Works for me. Now I can wait for the 721s to come down in price and work SOME of their new bugs out (cue the ROTFL boobirds) before jumping there. Network Waivers and superstations keeping me at E*, so no "Jump to D*!" responses please (part of me is praying the merger goes through just so those posts will stop)

I was up to two or three 32768s a week, and the wife just glared at me each time we had to reset (we'd still be using rabbit ears and a 25" Walmart TV if it were up to her). Since the update, I've had zero problems. It works as well as it did the first couple months we had it.

Thanks for the replies from my prior post:
“Has anyone had any problems 24 hrs after they ran the upgrade?? “
If nobody posted, I figured the upgrade was good so far.
If a lot of people posted, then the problems were still there, (we all like to complain).
I was surprised to see a few post and most of them positive! Time will tell!
Maybe now I can start selling my remaining DishPlayers that I have on hand since last July! (System has been so flaky I was afraid to sell them).
BTW, I think the DishPlayer problems may have been what got this forum rolling? That’s what got me here. Chris, correct me if needed.
