Most 501 owners are still at P154, and don't have local channel mapping. Again, a few lucky users have P155 and local channel mapping. A forthcoming update for the 501 will also give Dish home, and finally activate the Dish home button.
Check out my list of links.

i hear you there...
Dish Home is definatly not for everyone...
I tried it - played it with it - and out it went for now (110 got hooked up to 4000 instead )
Would be nice if there was an easy/simple way to downgrade for people who would rather want to go back to No Dish Home software versions as they were before the software upgrade...
Or even better - let this be a suggestion - if some1 has any "pull"
around here - to have somewhere on Menu Options, Option to shut OFF Dish Home (for a while anyhow - if wanted), then someone can choose it back ON in a future too if wanted/needed

I received Monday the 90-day compliance report from Dish Network. They did the most popular receivers first (4900, 301s), and should have the 501s by the end of July.
I will be posting an excert from that report later on tonight. I have been working late at work.

Is there a Dish Home button on your remote? Have you tried it instead of manually punching in 100?

OK, she came back and said the 301's don't have Dish Home yet and could not give me a timeframe. Only the 3900 and 4900's have it.

i thought i heard on Charlie Chat them mention that 301s
and 501s will be completed this summer..
So maybe 301s were not yet done, or maybe not all of them anyhow
