"Engineering plans to spool the FULL PHASE of software version L4.01"
Yes, as tnsprin noted the word is plans. It is not yet an every receiver release.

Patience. Or read some of the complaints and be glad you don't have it! :D

Have not recieved it yet and not in a big hurry since I have been operating perfectly for a long time. Being patient is not a problem rather than gaining a headache. :)

See the report here as well:

That would make sense (L4.02) especially with the complaints about L4.01 here and elsewhere.

It seems odd to me that so many people seem to be upset about NOT getting L4.01 at the same time as so many people are upset about getting it. Is the grass always greener on the other side?

For those who want to fill this forum with "I don't have it" posts ...

If you did not get L4.01 last week (March 23rd or so) you will not be getting L4.01 until further report.

P Smith is kind enough to monitor E*'s software streams and most likely will provide that report when it happens (and not a day or week before).

It doesn't matter where you live or how many times you reboot your receiver. Until your receiver is targeted you won't get L4.01 - and the targeting has not changed in over a week.

So, as suggested before, relax. You will get a new software version eventually. Please be patient.

From everything I'm seeing, I'm happy to have 366 at this point. Like I said before, I would rather they take their time releasing a well-tested version. Oh, and thanks again for the volunteer testers (and testers who didn't volunteer but got it anyway) that let Dish know that 401 was not really ready! Your reports probably saved the rest of us a whole lot of grief!

Got up this morning, checked as I always do, still 366. Going back to DirecTV is starting to look better and better every day! :eek2:


No! Don't do that!
Granted I was only there for 9 months and with DISH for 9 years, but Directv and their equipment are both a complete mess.
If you think you've got any problems now, you'll see quadruple the problems with what they're offering now.
