    Effective 02/21/08, L4.49 has begun spooling for the ViP622/ViP722. It looks like it will be a partial release initially. Please use this thread for documenting your experiences and/or bugs found.

    Release notes can be found here

    I have actually gained from the release since the Favorite "popup" solves a problem for this idiot who sometimes presses the guide button too many times ending up in the wrong guide.:grin:

    The DishONLINE has some option called TV Entertainment but it's a "coming soon." Hope that means access to online programming - something like Hulu? It also seemed that the listing for the 332 available movies loaded faster.

    I didn't experience problems to be fixed by the "fixes" so I don't know if they work or not.

    I have E* thru AT&T. We don't get DishONLINE. I am on L4.48. We have a TV Entertainment option under the DVR menu (item 3). In that area we have 3 programs available that include Explorer: Inside Sumo, House Hunters Tenn., Everyday Italian - Freeze. It appears they are from SOON channels 5828-30

    I like the favorites mode change. (Got to go into Favorites setup to turn it on.)
    My wife is constantly changing the guide to HER list ... to get back to mine is several presses of the guide button. The menu makes that a quicker selection (for me).

    I'm with AT&T also and I have dishOnline. You need to have your rcvr connected to a broadband network for this option to appear.

    Software updates are released in batches. E* usually starts with a small group of receivers and then works up adding larger groups until "everyone" is selected to receive the new software.

    You can't choose what group you are in ... just turn off your receiver at night and wait for your number to come up.

    I am also a AT&T customer. Dishonline is scheduling recording on your DVR online. I beleive that you are talking about Video on Demand. You need a Dish account number to set up dish online, can not use AT&T account #'s.

    DishOnline is a service where you can download movies to your DVR over the internet. If you hit the DVR button, it should be option 5 on that menu. I have no option 5.

    I hope it fixes my reboot problem. I thought I had it fixed after I put a chill mat underneath it but it rebooted today. But I think the chill mat has helped since it has only rebooted once in 5 days.

    Step 1 - Wait for L4.49 to be targeted to and downloaded by your receiver.

    Step 2 - Press MENU-8-3 to go to favorites
    You should have a "Guide Selection" option next to your favorite lists ... one saying Guide Button (selected by default) and one saying Guide Popup - If you don't have this selection you don't have L4.49 ... return to step 1.

    Step 3 - Select "Guide Popup" then select DONE

    Step 4 - Press the "GUIDE" button on your remote to enter the guide

    Now every time you press the GUIDE button instead of flipping through the guides sequentially you will be presented with a menu. You can still press GUIDE over and over until you get to the menu you want, then select (without going to the word FAVORITES) or arrow to the list you want.

    I was just wondering if it was going to be a PITA thing like pressing the TV button and getting a popup that told you that you just pressed the TV button. I don't have any Favorite LIsts so just pressing the guide will bring up All Sub as it currently does? That would be good. I really don't see the point in messing with this when there are other more important things they could be fixing. Frame-by-Frame for example.

    Yes ... this one is totally optional. Most users won't even know they have the option.

    One press of GUIDE from watching TV or pretty much anywhere except the guide will give you the last guide format viewed ... just like it does pre-L4.49 ... and subsequent presses will cycle through guides ... just like it does pre-L4.49 .

    Some of this PITA stuff for tech people is a godsend for CSRs that get the call when customers can't figure out how to work their receiver. Every minute that they don't have to spend on the phone explaining how to tune the TV back to the satellite box and how to get back to controlling the receiver instead of the TV is a minute they can be helping other customers and (potentially) add up to hours that DISH won't have to pay CSRs.

    Money that can be spent on better things than "how to use your remote" telephone tutorials.

    James, thanks for the instructions, I don't yet have this download on my 622 but your post caused me to go look at my new 612 and this feature IS in the L4.71 software for the VIP612. I just didn't look deep enough before :)
