Just read over at SatGuys that S342 started rolling out yesterday. Anyone get it yet and what have you discovered Fixed or Broken?
You are mistaken in general approach. Not sure why ...Stewart Vernon said:One reason why most companies do not pre-announce things like new firmware, is because stuff happens... and dates are missed... and you set off all kinds of bad reactions from customers who had expectations based upon your announcements of things not yet ready.
I could be wrong, I sometimes am, but I do not believe Dish officially announces any upcoming firmware to the public. They might share info internally, and maybe some of this info leaks to other Web sites who "announce" it unofficially. Sometimes a CSR may also go rogue and talk to customers about upcoming firmware or features. I can guarantee, though, that corporate would not like this practice as all it does is set them up to fail in the eyes of customers. Companies are not always good at cracking down on internal and external leaks, though... so stuff gets out.
It has been a few years, but I do not recall announcements of FW versions or bug discussion in chats. We did get release notes in the past ... and a nice page of what software versions were current. But the release notes became vague and then basically disappeared. Current discussion seems to be leak based not release based.P Smith said:You are mistaken in general approach. Not sure why ...
Perhaps you missed charlie chats, but there they used a practice of announcement of future FW version(s) and its feature and bugs elimination.
