Got 4.01 also!

One Quick Tip concerning HD Mapdown. At first I thought it wasn't working on mine as it didn't show up on my Guide (one of my custom favoite lists). After checking "all sub" it was indeed working. I guess I expected it to automatically update my Favorites lists, it does not. You have to manually add the new mapdown channels to your Favorites List. They do make it easy as all HD channels have an HD logo even in the favorites modify list.

Everything else seems OK so far.

I just looked at the tester list that I sent over, and saw that you didn't send me an email address. Perhaps one of the other testers who did get the email will forward it to you. I don't want it posted here in this thread.

I told you that I needed complete information...



I also verified with Mark that I'm on the tester list, but didn't receive an email from Dish. Could someone please forward me one of their emails so I can hae the instructions? Thanks!

There was a deadline BTW.

If you didn't get into the initial group you will likely have to wait for the full public release.

I sent in my data but have received no email from Dish yet. :confused:

Did they send the emails all at once or are they sending the test info email in batches?



In my rush to get it in on time yesterday morning I sent Mark everything but the email address. Maybe I will get 4.01 anyway.

According to rkafoury, Mark verified that he is on the list but he just never received an email from Dish.

I am sure not all the fixes and features added to L4.01 will be in those notes.

That list appears to be features only. There's really no mention of any bug fixes.

Regarding features, there's no mention of The Weather Channel "on the 8s" feature. Scott's "source" said that was the reason for one of the holdups.

Does the non Side by side PIP use the whole landscape or is it still in the 4:3 landscape?

While I am told the interactive update is in L4.01 I am also told that they do not expect the "local on the 8's" to be working until May.

I got it last night (no email). The PIP side by side shows full 4:3 for SD, no matter what zoom setting you are using, and shrinks the windows vertically to show 16:9 for HD channels.

Ditto on editing favorites to show map down.

To avoid splintering.. I have close this thread. As P. Smith suggested above, follow the link to L4.01 discussions.
