Take a weekend off and see what happens! :) Keith gave me permission to post his info on the EKB a couple of weeks ago and I created the page the same day.

Marcus, you all now have 3 places for the software versions.

The software versions are also available:
1) as mentioned by Scott... off the main DBSTalk home page.
2)The EKB on the main page at http://echostar.swiki.net or directly at http://echostar.swiki.net/295
3)The EKB on DBSTalk on the main page under receivers at http://ekb.dbstalk.com or www.echostaruser.com AND directly at http://ekb.dbstalk.com/295

Ask and ye shall receive. :D

See ya
Tony

301 receiver and P172 (1.72) software upgrade...

For the DP301 receiver, why are 1.57, 1.70, and 1.72 all listed as "current" software? Does this mean that I could have any one of these versions and be on the latest software? I'm confused.

I received P170 for my 301 receiver several weeks ago, but haven't heard much discussion about the P172 version.

What is included in the P172 upgrade?

Also something to consider for future enhancement, keep a running list of all software versions for each receiver and list date software first deployed and a very brief indication of significant change for each version. That would be neat! Especially months from now when we might need to reference back.

I believe that 1.57 is the "current" software. Dish began to spool 170 to the 301s, and before it was done spooling 170 to all the receivers the newer version 172 came out. So some receivers may still have 157 since they have yet to be upgraded. Some receivers got 170 before 172 came out and are in the queue to get 172 now. And some receivers are going directly from 157 to 172.

172 is currently spooling to 301s.

See ya
