    From the Tech Depot:

    6/4/2008: 1000 Software Version L5.10 for ViP 622 DVR

    Effective Thursday, June 5th, Engineering plans to spool a PARTIAL PHASE of software version L5.10 for the ViP 622 DVR receiver. This is primarily a non-forced maintenance release available at ALL satellite locations.
    At this time L4.49 and L5.10 will be the valid software versions for the ViP 622 DVR.


    6/4/2008: 1001 Software Version L5.10 for ViP 722 DVR

    Effective Thursday, June 5th, Engineering plans to spool a PARTIAL PHASE of software version L5.10 for the ViP 722 DVR receiver. This is primarily a non-forced maintenance release available at ALL satellite locations.
    At this time L4.49 and L5.10 will be the valid software versions for the ViP 722 DVR.

    Is this the long-awaited "spring software release?" I'm trying to remember what they said back in February (tech chat) about this. Seems to me one of the things was enhanced folder support in the DVR menus (including the EHD). Maybe also something about web scheduling? Help me out.....

    I recall the reference time given in that chat as being summer, not spring, but who knows, perhaps they're ahead of schedule.
    Guess we'll find out tomorrow. :)

    Remember when we looked forward to new releases to see what new and exciting things they have given us?
    I must admit, I got a knot in the pit of my stomach when I read about this.

    Got about half a notion to disable the auto power down on my 722, and leave it powered up for a few days. Just to wait and see if others start having problems.

    Was thinking the same thing.

    Let someone else be the guinea pigs.

    agreed, last time they "updated" my machine, it took 3 622s and a 722 to finally get a working one again.

    So, although the roll out has started, it's not yet official? I noticed we don't have a headline on it, nor program notes.

    Nope, still running L4.49. But my 622 is way down on E*s list and usually takes two or three days to get the download.

    Rumor has it this is only going out (now) to those with L448 or earlier - in other words, new installs. No confirmation so far.

    From what I recall, a roll-out date is indicative of the overnight following the specified date.

    How many are going to block this download?

    I don't think you can block unless you are present at the receiver when it tries to download.

    There may be some problems, but I don't think it is reasonable to expect that we're going to have to endure the difficulties that quite a few D* HD DVR users seem to be subject to.

    I'm hoping that it is rather benign with maybe some fixes to EHD stability. Perhaps it has something to do with shifting satellites or transponders around that couldn't be handled by table changes.

    That's not a rumor, but pure fact. Better if you cite your source.

    True you can't really block it, but you can post pone it by setting your receiver to never powerdown. Then never turn it off. The catch is the guide data won't update either. Besides the first time the power goes out it'll update when it comes back on.

    You can set the Inactivity Standby to Disable but the only way to defeat the Updates is to schedule it at the same time as an Auto-Tune or Recording. If you want to get a guide update, perform a check switch. I don't think it checks for firmware downloads at that time. My receiver is never turned off. As for power outages, you should have UPS protection anyway.
