    Got this from Dish, figured I'd pass it along here:

    Subject: Quad LNBF – Special Installation Instructions for the DishPVR 721
    Products Affected: DishPro Quad LNBF, DishPVR 721
    This bulletin provides special instructions for installing the DishPro Quad LNBF with the DishPVR 721 receiver.
    The DishPVR 721 receiver must take a software upgrade (L100 or later) from the satellite before it will work with the DishPro Quad LNBF.
    While there are instances when a DishPVR 721 receiver will take an initial software upgrade through a DishPro Quad LNBF, it is not consistent and therefore not the recommended method. The initial software should be upgraded through an LNBF other than a DishPro Quad LNBF using instructions from the DishPVR 721 User’s Guide. It is recommended that a software upgrade from the satellite be accomplished at the dealer’s shop to enable the DishPVR 721 to be installed at the customer’s location with a DishPro Quad LNBF.
    Software in DishPVR 721s from later production runs will be updated to include DishPro Quad LNBF installation support.

    It sounds to me like there has been a slew of problems with lnbf's and the issues with them. twin not working on 301, 501, dishpro not working with 721, now quad on 721, does anything work that do not have external switches with built in switch like twin and quads? Is there an issue with quad with 301, 501? Is there an issue with dishpro with 301, 501?

    It's important to point out that these problems are occuring with the DishPro Twins and Quads. As the owner of an older standard Twin, I've experienced none of these issues.

    I think there are still a few bugs to be worked out in the DishPro switches.

    Geez....technical innovation is nice and to be encouraged, but has Dish ever had a single, major, introduction that didn't have a fatal bug in it?

    So, is this the actual twin and the switch inside or is it the software like I have been told and thought it was?
