RandallA, if have you old logs with "???" instead of the same model ID as I pickup up from 61.5W yesterday, then you could post correct date when the L650 started.

I'll look into it. Right now I've been busy with a 622 that keeps freezing, just got it replaced last week so I'm thinking it's something on my end. :(

That's 4x10^9 = 4:mad:10^3)^3 ~ 4:mad:1024)^3 = 2^32
32-bit address, very simple.

And if so, then they have close to 295 million more above the 4billion.

And each model can (does?) start the SNs over, so they need 4.3 billion of the same model.
It'll never happen, and too easy to change the model to work around it.

L618 rolled out to a large percent of 622/722s, including one of mine. Any one see any changes or no of any fixes in it?

Actually no, since when you activate a receiver they only ever ask for R and S numbers, not model number, which means each number can only be used once. So it's maximum 4.3 billion total receivers in the system.

That's great news!! I'm looking forward to getting the FW update for that reason too...

Same here as far as supported formats (1080p60 and 1080p24). I tried playing a copy of the Beast I already had from a previous download and it was 1080i, so I deleted it and am downloading a new copy. One difference was that it didn't warn that my TV may not support the format - so that seems to be a good sign. With my DSL it will be at least a day until I can get a new copy downloaded though.
