I hope they did away with those partial and complete signal loss screens and the buggy code that makes them show up. What a PITA they are.

Uhhhhg, one day too late for this to roll out, 3 SC's yesterday for this reason. And the CSR's had no info on it. I asked when we could expect a fix to relay to the customer, they had none.

Communication: DishNetwork's strong suit. Buaahahaha.

Lol

CSR's are ALWAYS the last to know anything. If they told CSR's before hand then they would be telling customers and possibly giving them bad info... especially when a new software release or a new channel launch is delayed at the last moment, which is VERY common.

Lol, This is pretty true, yet in our office, i still think the techs find out last. I only know sooner due to being a member of this forum.

And thats why you should let your co workers know about this forum, as we can actually make them more informed and in some cases they can learn how to do their jobs better. :D

Well I wouldn't call it "commercial" unless he's also pumping Pub membership. ;) Scott, does the existence of L677 for my 722 mean that L720 is in the far distant future? That's been sitting there on the tech support (or is it retailer?) website for a month already, teasing us with it's big jump in version numbers.

I think this thread got the spotlight stolen from it by the 129 fiasco, but... Anyone else getting this software? Anything worth mentioning in it?

Probably the most important feature in this update. Seems like we now know what the name of Blockbuster's new streaming plan will be called.

Don't get too excited. It just means 678 thru 719 were used for something else. Ever notice, they never use the same number on more than one platform.

Not to thread-jack, but I just got L677 on my 722. There is now (?) a Platinum item in DishOnline, and it's much easier to find stuff, and it streams immediately without issue unlike the old "streaming" that sometimes took hours to download a single HD program. So far I'm pleasantly surprised.
