I've searched for the force procedure, but can't find it on here. My 625 is still at L298, and I turn my tuner off every night. Don't understand why it hasn't moved up to the newest software....

Thanx!!!

What happens if you run check switch and then let it sit for 15 minutes? Have you guys tried that?
Thanks for the information but it didn't do anything for me.:(
 
until they push it for "all" receivers, if your R00 number isn't in the list you won't get it period.
 
Well, it was going Full Phase when I checked on Wednesday. I just checked now and it's Partial Phase so that explains it why the OP is not getting it.

Dial out Error

Neutron said:
Mine has it.

According to my diag screen the last dial out was on Sept 18th.

I have a DVR625 with a Voice over IP System (A company called Lingo). When I test my phone connection, it states that the phone connection is good. When I try dial out option it gives me a Dial out error. I was told by dish that there may be a prefix code I need to enter. Any inputs?
 
1. checkswitch screen
2. set sat to 119
3. set transponder to 19
4. Using remote turn power off
5. Within (if not immediately) 5-10 minutes receiver will turn back on and download new software (if available).
