This is from tech portal:

02/01/2006: 1110 Software Version L3.50 for ViP622
Effective Thursday, February 2nd , Engineering plans to spool the FULL PHASE of software version L3.50 for the ViP622 receiver. This is primarily a non-forced maintenance release available at ALL satellite locations.


At this time L3.50 will be the valid software version for the ViP622.

If a tree falls in the woods and nobody's around, does it make a sound?

:welcome_s sunfire. Just because the techportal says that a software version is spooling or will spool does not mean it is spooling. The techportal has been known to be wrong before.

I am sure one of the guys watching the heavens will chim in with the real answer. I think P. Smith already did. ;)

Sory, lujan. It made sense to those who are still waaiting for an official non-beta software release for the ViP-622. "We're waiting" should be read as "nothing in the stream yet".

Yep.. P. Smith's posts made perfect sense in the if the whole thread is read. Basically means no official 622 software spooling.

Software is spooled that was being loaded to the beta users. So its out there. It certainly can be released to any machine that actually gets delivered.

With E*s specific permission (based on P Smith's reports they are targeting a few hundred specific units).
Released receivers have all receivers addressed with software. The 622 does not.

We have new software today - ACX1 (194), ACY1 (145) and old one ACP1 (159) in stream now.

Look likes Dish hunting for three bugs.

From my understanding customer receivers requires production level code. Right now only Beta verisons are spooling so their currently is not version available if a customer receives his 622. I would be really suprised if Dish allowed customers to get Beta version. This is definitely not how Dish operates from what I have seen posted here.

The exception to that is the 921 owners. We have been beta testers for 2 years.

I am a 921 customer and though I understand you point I personally don't agree with it. I am definitely not going down the road of what Beta means.. ;) That was covered in another thread a few days back.

It is a "tongue in cheek" comment. As 921 owners We have had to endure a lot of bugs and I feel are the ones who have received the least consideration from Dish.

Well, same ACP1, ACX1 and ACY1.
We'll check tomorrow, but I'm doubt if it will happen on Friday - who will respond to all calls on Weekend ;).

I would rename the thread to "There will be new software for 622 !!!" :D :P
