    Hi all,
    Some1 i know who got 3900, was offered today the upgrade for his 3900 ( never 3800 ) - he took it - and immidiatly noticed on sys. info:
    p142 ( before was 140, so i guess he bypassed 141 :) )

    here is his txt below:

    Hehe - put my 3900 ( never 3800 :) - on today - and "There is upgrade,
    do you want it :), etc" - hehe - finally - so i said "yes"
    shut ird off - waited somewhat - put back on - sys info - hehe:
    version: p142 ( not p141 instead of p140, but 142 - hehe lucky me :)
    anyhow finally - it is all there..on menu : button for Home, and button for Customer Service..
    i noticed something else anyhow - on Install Menu - in addition
    to sat 129 ( at the right of other 4 birds ) - now 129 is also among
    all the 4 birds - so now on left is actually 5 birds..( i am pretty
    sure it wasn't like that in p140 )
    anyhow - i got it and IT - hehe - kinda Sux :(

    nothing special - but now the future guide is kinda screwed up..and
    the pic in guide - almost impossible to receive..there is one way
    i think to get it - cheap way - while waiting for it - to go ahead
    and try to dl future guide..about 1/2 way through download - it
    stops..and pic in guide pops in ( sometimes ) -but the guide is
    incomplete - lots of Info not available - it sux anyhow..
    oh well, i still take it - always like newest version - maybe they
    ll fix somehow somewhat - i say if you have friends , or know people
    who are with 3900 ( ex 3800 ) and took Upgrade- they should call
    Dish - and complain a lot about it - maybe they ll do something
    sooner or later..all i know that 142 doesn't look that it fixed
    anything of 141 ( if it ment to :)
    Some games, Horoscope, etc - you know :)

    oh well - that is life :)

    Later all,
    People with 3900 - maybe Do call and complain - mostly about the Guide and Pic in Guide ( those 2 are more important and usefull then Dish Home - i think so anyhow )

    I got the 3900 upgrade and played with it. IMO it is WAY TOO SLOW to be useful. I tried playing solitaire and the game timed out before I'd managed to move 3 cards. Remote response is too slow to play any game with any enjoyment.

    Maybe it'll be faster on the 501 but on the 3900 it's no good for me. Plus it totally messes up IR setup on a standalone TiVo.

    I still haven't gotten the Dish Home upgrade yet, what the heck is taking them so long to get to me?! I power off my reciever every night and I have it set to download without asking, so what's the hold-up?
