When something is a "partial phase", what does that really mean? The last updates were "full phase".

I would assume the update is more detailed and provides complex software modifications with a much greater potential for introducing new bugs that cannot be fully texted in a lab environment. Thus, the update is pushed to a small sampling of receivers, and the results are carefully measured, before ordering a larger or a full phase roll-out. Hmmm. But perhaps Dish Network Labs just rolls a pair dice...:)

My guess is agile output for the first update and some other partial update bs for this one (maybe to get it ready for new HD channels?) it's funny to see how many updats they are trying to push out this week... isn't there a tech summit this week also? HRMMMMMM?

I think that's a better definition for Partial Phase. :devil:

I read a post on the other site stating the update will fix some local HD problems. Specifically an audio sync problem with the SF Bay area KGO/ABC HD feed. Since I live there, I hope it's correct.

It'll probably make the Dish Logo more robust, when the receiver is turned off. It used to float on the 625, it jumps from one spot to the other on the 622....:D :D :D

The audio sync issue is on the station's side and appears on all HD feeds, including OTA and cable. I've tested it myself.
