Dish Home upgrade on 3900 - p142 now i guess!
Posted 24 April 2002 - 06:13 PM
Some1 i know who got 3900, was offered today the upgrade for his 3900 ( never 3800 ) - he took it - and immidiatly noticed on sys. info:
p142 ( before was 140, so i guess he bypassed 141 )
here is his txt below:
Hehe - put my 3900 ( never 3800 - on today - and "There is upgrade,
do you want it , etc" - hehe - finally - so i said "yes"
shut ird off - waited somewhat - put back on - sys info - hehe:
version: p142 ( not p141 instead of p140, but 142 - hehe lucky me
anyhow finally - it is all there..on menu : button for Home, and button for Customer Service..
i noticed something else anyhow - on Install Menu - in addition
to sat 129 ( at the right of other 4 birds ) - now 129 is also among
all the 4 birds - so now on left is actually 5 birds..( i am pretty
sure it wasn't like that in p140 )
anyhow - i got it and IT - hehe - kinda Sux
nothing special - but now the future guide is kinda screwed up..and
the pic in guide - almost impossible to receive..there is one way
i think to get it - cheap way - while waiting for it - to go ahead
and try to dl future guide..about 1/2 way through download - it
stops..and pic in guide pops in ( sometimes ) -but the guide is
incomplete - lots of Info not available - it sux anyhow..
oh well, i still take it - always like newest version - maybe they
ll fix somehow somewhat - i say if you have friends , or know people
who are with 3900 ( ex 3800 ) and took Upgrade- they should call
Dish - and complain a lot about it - maybe they ll do something
sooner or later..all i know that 142 doesn't look that it fixed
anything of 141 ( if it ment to
Some games, Horoscope, etc - you know
oh well - that is life
People with 3900 - maybe Do call and complain - mostly about the Guide and Pic in Guide ( those 2 are more important and usefull then Dish Home - i think so anyhow )

Maybe it'll be faster on the 501 but on the 3900 it's no good for me. Plus it totally messes up IR setup on a standalone TiVo.
