Hey all-

I think there is another software paths for the 508 that Im not getting. My current version says P199XXXXXX. How do I get the latest patch? I thought this happened when turning the unit on/off.

Thanks-

You just have to wait until the software is available for YOUR receiver. Echostar often rolls out software releases (NOT patches) to a limited number of receivers at a time so not everyone gets a new release when it is first spooled. You are correct about the receivers needing to be off to get the new software.
