Do you have a 5XX rec.?
Did they fix the bug where if you were watching a dvr show and did a search after about 2 minutes it would kick you out of your search/dvr setup and return you to the show?
Otherwise (and the above is not a big deal) my box is very, very reliable and i trust it 10x times more then my 921. I hope this didn't kill the reliability with this seemily unimportant update.....

If you will see how Dishnetwork numbering the versions , you'll not see any jumps there.
Doesn't sound like a justified jump to version 3 (from version 2.xx) unless there's a lot changed under the hood as well. Then again dish software number never followed the norm.
The version numbers are _unique_ thru ALL models, ie P224-P299 taken for other receivers or PVRs.

For good reason, I never criticize someone until I've walked a mile in their shoes. If they don't like what I say, what're they gonna' do? I'm a mile away. And they have no shoes!

Now, Darkman, tell me about first 'test' group, hehe .

Don't think it's going "widespread" yet to all the receivers out there (as of 12:20 PM March 10, 2005 - Dish's link doesn't show so anyhow)...
Some more on this here:
P.Smith... huh? -----> all i know is that according to Dish's page - it's not widespread yet .. (or course "reported sources" might be fresher then some page)

In only 2 days, I have had to reboot it and I have missed 3 of 5 timers. I never missed a timer with this box in the past.
On Saturday, my 501 which had never missed any timers with previous software, failed to do any of its timers that day, until I rebooted it. This despite the fact that I reboot all receivers every night before bed.
Do two data points mean a problem ? Hmmm...
