    You're counting my words, while I did try to count the company's.... ;) Actually we got no one word about the S2.13 and such 'Easter Egg' as MRV or whatever named as such.

    I have two hoppers and two joeys. One pair, hopper and joey is working perfectly. The good hopper can see the second and play its recordings, etc.

    The second pair will not link. The joey just keeps searching for it's hopper. The hopper only sees the Hopper Internet Connector. The DVR Menu does not have the hopper selector menu, that space is just blank.

    It can't see any other devices, but functions as a standalone system. Can't say this software is working very well for me. I've tried reseting both hopper and joey, I've disconnected the joey, then pulled the power on the hopper. Waited 5 minutes powered on the hopper and after it was fully up powered up the joey. They just won't connect so I've lost use of one TV. I've done the power off / on 4 times with no success.

    Hopper 1 received S213 on 6/26 at 4:05am.

    Hopper 2 received S213 on 6/28 at 2:22am.

    During the time the versions didn't match, Hopper 2 and both Joeys were acting very erratically. If I had to guess I'd say something in the updated network protocol for S213/S265 wasn't fully backwards-compatible with the earlier versions, causing a confused system until everyone spoke the same language.

    I don't see any new spool for the models.

    Only new test for ViP722: L7.25.

    What happens if you pair that Joey to the working Hopper? Since you say the working Hopper can see the "bad" one's recordings, pairing that Joey to the working Hopper should at least give you the ability to view recordings, which would get you your lost TV back...

    I got the updates on both H/J on 6-28. Everything is working OK as far as MRV functions. The Joeys now have DHCP assigned IP addresses from my router.

    One of my Hoppers has a problem dropping local channels from custom favs lists, This problem was not corrected by S213 and in fact seems to have gotten worse.

    With the 213/265 update can anyone see a EHD on the "integrated" Hopper?

    Got the update Wed on one hopper but other one and both joeys still on old software. Kind of makes it a pain when you can't watch recordings using all equipment.

    I got one Hopper and two Joey's updated. One Joey linked to unupdated Hopper. Had to power off and restart the Joey to get it to work.

    I can see the EHD on the host Hopper and linked Joeys but not on the other (integrated?) Hopper.

    I have been complaining about this for weeks (even to a DIRT member) and it has yet to be acknowledged as a bug. :mad::mad::mad:

    I too drop local channels from my fav lists. Also my default fav list resets ever night usually. Always resets back to My Channels, change it back to my fav list, says for a night or maybe two and then resets. :mad:

    BTW, this issue occurs on both of my Hoppers!

    How long does it take for Dish to push the update to ALL hoppers/joeys? I got one hopper updated Wed. and here it is Sat. and 2nd hopper and two joeys still have 2.12/2.64 software. This makes it a pain to get full use out of your equipment. We should get credited for putting up with this.

    My second Hopper was updated to 213 last night. I am cautiously optomistic that my system is now operating according to spec.

    Thanks again, Elves!

    Ridiculous! Maybe you should look at guide format options before you go complaining to everyone.

    At least a couple of weeks. Updates are normally done with expanding ranges of receivers. A few hundred at first, then a few thousand working up to everybody. That way if there is a serious issue DISH can back off before bricking everybody's receivers.

    This is one of those updates where it works best when ALL receivers are updated the same night. Not easy to do when DISH is doing ranges and receiver numbers may not be in the same range.

    It would help if something that was off didn't turn on when an update was received. :)
