well i'm trying to avoid the issue where it downloads, then locks up the box for a day or two while I can't get back to it. I'd prefer to trigger a download and be able to monitor it while it's happening rather than having to set my alarm for 3 am every morning until it arrives.

Hopefully this is not the same 4.01 that was delayed because of an issue found in testing :)

Well since no one knows exactly when it releases and who will be targeted, it will be hard to do what you are trying to do. My suggestion is once you see reports here of people getting it do the procedure I indicated and you should see a download dialog shortly after you place the unit in standby.

Who said L4.01 was delayed because of an issue found in testing? I dont' recall a reason being given for L4.01 being delay. Just that it was delayed and given it has been a few weeks, I would guess the code base has changed since then.

Wouldn't you know it... We're heading on vacation for a week starting Saturday. Fingers crossed for a clean install and re-boot if/when it occurs. :rolleyes:

maybe the auto-tune-timer trick will save you some headache?

If I was you, I'd turn off auto update. Last thing I'd want would be a stuck DVR when you get back from vacation, and all your shows didn't record.

When does Dish usually spool their software? I seem to remember it happening in the early morning hours. Did they cancel the release? Any thoughts.

I thought it was always very late in the day of release, like in the early hours of the following day (i.e. Friday) when I received them in the past.

I waited for this release for months. Got sick of audio breakups and no HDMI. I just sent my 2 back and went over to the dark side. D* forever. Too late Dish!

When my "wake-up" auto timer didn't fire this morning, I thought that it was because I had gotten the new update. This has screwed my auto tune timers in the past. But, when I pressed select, all I had was the warning screen offering the sole option of deleting everything on my hard drive. Naturally, since I read DBStalk often, I knew that this was not going to happen in reality, so I did the only option available and hit select. It rebooted with the 3.66 firmware, no recorded shows lost that I can see.

Glad to see that things have not changed, DISH. :nono2:

What must the usual 622 owner think when they are presented with that warning screen and just one option of deleteing everything???? :eek2:

Who said L4.01 was delayed because of an issue found in testing? I dont' recall a reason being given for L4.01 being delay.

There's been various reasons thrown around and it depends on who you believe (or maybe they're all right). Mark Lamutt implied something related to closed-captioning that may have been to blame. Scott G said they held it in order to finalize things so that "Weather on the 8's" would work first on the 622s.

I'm curious what you think you can do that will "help" it download and update properly. What are you going to "monitor" ?? The progress bar ??

So what's the consensus now? Has Dish changed their web page? Is 4.01 on hold for now or might we get it tonight?
