Mark,

Could the riddle have anything to do with the 922 and its introduction in May?

Is the 922 red like Mark added to his riddle?

No, the 922 has nothing to do with this.

Codenames were used for the next 2 software releases. One of them is a little red planet, the other is a much larger planet...indicative of the number of things planned to be fixed in each release. Both releases were originally scheduled to be released in April, hence the "planets aligning", when after the second release, most of the bugs and problems would be fixed.

The timeframe has changed, but everything else is still on track.

I was told by Dish engineer L180 is scheduled for release on Wednesday 04/21/04 provided no problems arise. He told me problems arose which pushed back the scheduled release. These problems have been corrected, and L180 is now in beta testing for next weeks release.

The problem was probably that they need to take the "DVHS Setup" item out of the Preference Menu now that the cat is out of the bag.

The delay has nothing to do with the current mess of the dishwire ports.

Eagles, what you were told is mostly true. We're still trying to isolate one more issue...I was working on it until past 1am this morning, and spent a couple of hours re-wiring my entire setup temporarily last night in the attempt. I'll know when I get home tonight whether I found it or not.
