Yes - my 4000 took new upgrade last night - 761 now..
lets, please share our thoughts, findings, expertise about it here..
cuz this one is internesting/weird upgrade - or so it seems so far...
maybe someone knows more details on it - please share!
But i noticed one Major , strange thing though - when making Switch Check - it goes now through 34 checks instead of 26...
i thought 4000 and such receivers were not capable of 34 switch check Period ...
any more findings, thoughts...please
maybe not all of you got it yet..- i think i got it last night or maybe day or 2 earlier..
usually i keep at "Ask Permission before downloading" - to know when they are coming.. - but i had it on "autodownload" somehow this time
I put it back as it was though...lol
Darkman e-mailed me earlier and that is exactly what is happening. He's getting the additional side slot channels (call to get a dish) message when he tunes to it. I have a 4000 also, but since I already have a second (third) dish, I didn't see the new software when it came down.
But on top of that, the 4000 may now be capable of cascading swiches. I don't know about this, but with 34 switch checks it sounds like it has the capability.
i agree with you...
agree about locals in the EPG w/out 2nd dish...
and agree with Tony about 34 switch checks and the capability of that..
anyone noticed 4000 being a bit faster all around after this latest (761) upgrade? or is that just my imagination....
Cascading switches - allows you to use an SW21 going to a TWIN, QUAD, SW44, (and maybe SW64), SW42 to get 3 slots (typically 119, 110 and either 61.5 or 148). Would be interesting to see if the 4000 can now use the TWIN or QUAD or SW44.
I have 2 SW21 1 SW44 Switches, 1 Dish 500 with dual LNBF (each output carries 110 and 119 satelites) and 2 receivers. I'm projecting to expand to 4 receivers. what i need to do have to see dish 61.5, 110 and 119 in all 4 receivers.
You answer will be very appreciated.
