Does anyone know when the 501 will be getting a search function for the listings guide like the 7200?

Hope your right cblount, Dish promised us the 7day EPG and just made it in time.....with a 9 day one.:)

I've never seen this feature on a Dishplayer , I wonder if most people find the SEARCH feature helpful?

Yes the Displayer 7100 and 7200 have always had a search function for the guide. Just press the options button on controller and select search. Then a onscreen keyboard will appear. I have the webtv keyboard that has a search shortcut key. So I can type in what every search critia that I am looking for. ie:search by actor, show title.

Anyone hear anything? I thought something by the superbowl...

Searching is not going to be great anyways with a remote as the only input...

Hi Switzma,
I haven't heard anything, but I've got a gut feeling that they probably won't make their promise date of by the Super Bowl.
With adding all the locals Jan 1st, and problems that arose from that and we just got a vers.139 upgrade from them.

Never know though :)

I suspect that most of the programming effort recently has gone into the upgrades for ALL of the receivers. Every one of them has been upgraded (or is being upgraded) to look at the 129 satellite in addition to 61.5, 110, 119 and 148.

As I think we all suspected, the Super Bowl came and went and no search feature. :(

I figured they meant the 2003 super bowl. So that still gives them almost a year to do it.

want DISH to hit you with a new s/w load RIGHT before the SuperBowl...did you?
They only missed the 7/9-day guide at Thanksgiving by a couple of days...and I am very glad that I got to WATCH the SuperBowl, instead of resetting my PVR during the game.
Be patient...
