    Are there any rumours about a replacement for 3.69 which runs very badly on some 510's?
    Or a rumour about any receiver known to work properly?

    Looks like the testing on these versions isn't working too well.
    Customer service calls must be epic.

    I know it must be a major major task to test these on all the platforms out there, before release , but that's the game.

    Hope none of these guys get a new job working on rockets or airplanes.

    How does one get the betas?
    Random chance? Tech calls?

    The easiest way is to work for E* where the receiver being developed. E* has an established beta list. Rarely someone outside the list will get the software (members in our 622 forum helped test the last couple of releases) but generally speaking betas go to specific testers who give feedback direct to the designers - not to random receivers or "regular customers".

    Figures. That's not a good thing.
    Betas should be offered to "knowledgeable" customers, particularly those that have issues that the beta is meant to address.

    It's not like they don't have the infrastructure to support it. Register online with the receiver ID, and then the beta is offered. Add a "revert" option to the betas, so if it has too many issues the user can go back to the current released version.

    Probably a few hours of work, and the customer satisfaction level would improve. Whether one used the beta or not, just know that a beta exists implies problems are being worked on. Of course, a little "Release Notes" file on the web would help a lot too. Many 3.68 users would like to know what 3.69 was supposed to have fixed/added.

    Release notes are what they care to share when they can be talked into sharing at all. It usually comes down to users sharing their experiences on the forums. I try to condense those discussions on the EKB Dish Network Receiver Software history pages (click the version number).

    Better to add details to, or make, an L422 thread in the General Dish Discussion area.
