Maybe I got it because I've had problems? I do like having Pandora and the apps section working, though.

That was your lucky chance :); perhaps lparsons21 can enlighten us - was it truly random ?

Oh, that make us, customers, real guinea pigs ! :D

Anyway, only one our member got it and they are spooling post-S2.08 gamma version now.
I'm using gamma word to distinguish from real beta, when only boxes under NDA/contract getting it.

Explain, and what's NDA/contract?
Thank you and
Best of luck

Non disclosure agreement. People who have a test box under agreement (or contract) with DISH network for testing purposes. These people would receive non-public versions of the firmware and report directly to DISH about the performance of the software in order to help DISH in development.

wait, am I not supposed to have Pandora and Facebook on my Hopper yet? Because I do.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

I don't know if this is random or related to 2.08. Last night, just as PTAT was firing up, the Hopper crashed and rebooted. It had been acting flakey during the day... guide was not smooth and responses to remote actions such as page-up/down were very slow. Screen refreshes when switching from full screen TV to the guide (or any other menu-type display) and back were very slow, as well. After the crash and subsequent reboot, everything appeared to be back to normal. I will try to reproduce this today, after work.

Don't waste your time - there are 300 gamma testers who doing that for money. More important - there are two gamma versions what are updated 2.08.

Okay... then I guess I won't try to duplicate it. :) I wish I was getting money, though. :)

You pay them, man. It's part of monthly and lease fee.

Speaking of paying them, since you're the resident spooler spotter, any idea how many have been upgraded to S2.08?
The reports are sparse to say the least, I've read more about folks not getting then getting. On the other hand the reports from getters indicate they have gotten some additional buggyness.
Thank you and
Best of luck

Looking for someone who could do that 24/7 - that's why the S2.08 full info missed - it was quick spool what lasts one hour IMO.
lparson21 mentioned 500 boxes, but I found the word off mouth in the area is not true.

The other place mentioned 5K were suppose to get S2.08. After the vet the rest, but I don't think it's been near that, just a feeling by what has been or not been posted.

I got S209 on one of my Hoppers last night.

Yeah, after I posted the 500 number, I read about the 5000. But since it is being randomly (from our POV) sent out, we aren't seeing as many comments about it here and at the other site as I would expect.

And S2.09 is also being reported.

Perhaps it was one time limited spool [for innocent guinea pigs :)]...

Right Now I see superseded S2.09 gamma versions ANB1/BLB1 spooling for 270 boxes.

POV ? What is that ? What relation you have with the SW Dept ? Or just spreading around someone's posted info ?
