    Pretty easy to figure out James...

    Couple of ways actually (unless they are somewhat behind on their notes of course) .. - Firstly you go here:

    http://www.dishnetwork.com/content/customer_service/software_versions/index.asp

    and see which one (includiing the one above) is most current or the ONLY ONE listed there...

    It's NOT .. not as i type anyhow..

    Then to double-check / check some more ... - you go here:

    http://rweb.echostar.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/TechDepo.shtml .. - and press "Tech Update" (on the left there) .. or directly there would be - just press here:

    http://rweb.echostar.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/TechUpdates.shtml

    And look for MOST CURRENT notes about "your" particular one, in this case L3.66 .... - Aha! - and Here it is there!

    ---
    "2/26/2007: ... Software Version L3.66 for ViP 622 DVR

    Effective Tuesday, February 27th, Engineering plans to spool a PARTIAL PHASE of software version L3.66 for the ViP 622 DVR receiver. This is primarily a non-forced maintenance release available at ALL satellite locations.

    At this time L3.65 and L3.66 will be the valid software versions for the ViP 622 DVR"

    ---
    and from this you make an obvious conclusion - Nope .. it's NOT / won't be a "wide-spread" S/W.. Not just yet! (..unless NOT everything is kosher (so to speak) with those Notes of theirs))

    ---

    P.S. ... LOL, I just looked more careful at what you were asking above .. and it's NOT even what i am answering you about, ahaha :rolleyes: :(

    Sorry ....

    Oh well.. let the above stand - someone might find that info useful at some future point ;)

    Good thing i double-checked in time what you were asking aboout, James... :D

    Otherwise ..i was going to conclude my above post with something like:

    .. and FINALLY you check with your receiver ... - if the S/W is REALLY "wide-spread", your receiver should be getting it FOR SURE (.. or at the very LEAST .. telling you about it (if it's set to "ask permission before downloading new s/w version")) :)

    I have 366, anyone know what changes are included. Series "B" receiver with very few problems.

    EDIT: Looks like it is the Daylight Savings Time update.

    I got it on my B & E, F's are still at 365. I think it is only for DST. Nothing has changed, as far as I can detect.

    I don't expect that. Based on the release of L3.66 (DST only) instead of the expected (but never promised) L4.01, the best bet would be that was just another beta leading to the announced L4.01.

    An external HD (of any size) is not one of the improvements listed for L4.01 . :)

    I was speculating as to the content of BHM1 ... which I expect is leading to L401 and would not have features in it that won't be in L401.
