Check out the Dish tech portal. Looks like they are planning a partial release of L4.01 on Thursday. It's still hidden. View page source to see.

They just activated that page. I checked it not 15 minutes earlier and 4.01 was not there. You must be camped out on that page! Maybe it will come at last. Some of us should have it by Friday morning then.

Sometimes future updates appear in the HTML source as comments until Dish is ready to make them public.

Even when made public, it's not guaranteed. I've seen announced updates just continue to get pushed back. It's not for sure until it's loaded onto your machine.

The tidbits are it until the update is pushed and release notes are provided and even then those only capture the highlights.

And as Eagle said.. Just because it shows up on a HTML comment or even uncommented on the tech portal does not make it so. (See sig for my take on software releases. ;))

You guys crack me up.


I just get a metal picture of that scene from "The Matrix" where the guy is staring at the binary code and can understand what it is


Bring on 4.01 . . . . . . . .

I think "metal picture" is a reference to the tintype process once popular in photography.

I think he meant 'mental' not metal. And we geeks had a hard time enjoying matrix because were too busy deciphering the binary that we kept seeing!:lol:

There are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't. :D

I swear these threads can be more satisfying/amusing than any non-forced maintenance release...

ok, I hate to ask this again but I can't find the answer with a search...

is there any way to force the 622 to get the download (like, if it's not "targeted" for a download)?

And when they say it comes out Thursday March 15, do they mean at 3:00 am Thursday, or at 3:00 am Friday (also known as real late Thursday night)?

No.. It must be targeted for you to receive it. To receive it just make sure you have nothing recording and your 622 is in standby.

Oh.. and remember "A release is not a release until it is released." - Me. ;) ... Just because Tech Portal indicates it does not guarantee that it will release. Tech Portal has been wrong in the past.
