    Could they make those changes without the account number, SS, and/or PIN? If so, Dish needs to clamp down on their CSR security procedures.

    In the old days (blue card), having a good pair of R & S numbers would allow someone to effectively have a copy of the programming. AFAIK, that's not (yet) possible with a yellow card.

    If each receiver have own hidden registration number, then the trick could be done by such post, not in real life.

    According to my informal poll, most 50x users do not have it yet.

    I don't have it. I honestly could care less until the software is the NBR software, assuming that ever comes.

    The reason i want more of us to have it is becuse it seems like its close to NBR software and i want the bugs to get worked out sooner than later so we can have a smooth NR rollout for the 50X/510 boxes. It looks like were getting the look of the 522/625 no?

    3.01 arrived last night on my 501. I really like the improved menu. Didn't notice any other changes.

    I think they added the "Super Diagnostics" like the 311's have. I really like the diagnostics in the 311's, at least it tells you what kind of problems you may have.

    My 508 got the update this morning ("without my permission") and I like the new menu theme... but no 'Super Diagnostics'... They must have removed it from the code or something.

    As for my 510, however, no update. If they already sent it to the 501s and 508s, the 510s are probably next in line. ;)

    No you're not the only one. My 510 updated today, and though it looks fancy, there's just something I don't like about the DVR Events Menu. For example, if you go to DVR Events and "info" a program, it looks the same as before. But if you select it, and there's a long program description, part of the description is missing. I don't remember it being like that before. Was it?

    In any case, the lines of text and character spacing seem more condensed. And there's a lot of unused space on the screens. They could be displaying more events per screen, but instead the space is wasted. Just my opinion.

    My 501 got the update today. Lost all my recordings. The PVR screen showed only 8 of the about 2 dozen shows I had recorded - with the correct length this time - but said I had 34 hours and 59 minutes of record time left. Selecting any of the shows to play just put up the little play icon up on the screen for a bit but no other change on the screen whatsoever.

    When the previous update happened all my recorded shows were listed, but with zero length and again the 34 hours and 59 minutes of time left. They were also all toast.

    I am guessing the update occurred about 10:00am this morning as the detailed system information screen lists 91 signal losses starting at 10:02am on 6/9.

    I am not impressed by this "feature" of their software updates.

    Oh, all my timers stayed this time, in the previous update they all vanished.

    Ouch, 2 reports now of lost recordings. I'm a bit concerned now... 'cause there are programs on my hard disk I'd be sad to lose. :nono: Maybe it's time to backup.

    My 510 got the 3.01 update today, and I experienced my first glitch. I was recording a program that was set to 'Stop at end of event'. When the recording stopped, the picture froze. No matter which button I pressed, the "Stop Recording and Switch to Live Mode?" prompt would appear, but none of its options worked. Finally had to reset.

    Maybe I'm being punished for criticizing the new menus in my earlier post.

    Just the last few minutes got the upgrade on one of my 501s. Still waiting on the other 501 and 510.

    The receiver id was 35677XXX outside the range posted by P Smith on 4 Jun 2005.

    Pretty menus. No apparent loss of timers or recorded programs.

    It was on both of my 501s and 510 version 3.00 and prior. It seems only when there is to much description it got truncated on that particulat menu. But when you actually started the program and hit info, it was all there.
