well 3.32 was a huge fubar to the HD picture alignment so dunno what this does. I think it's supposed to include 8psk turbo coding. Maybe we need this to fix voom, probably not related, but I still can't figure out how they'd let those erros go on this long
But where did you here about 33 anyways, it's not on their site

funny how you can only get the tech update link with a direct link now. I can't find the tech update link on any other pages.

This thing isn't getting near my 811 until hear some positive feedback. Any brave 811 owners out there? ;)

Just checked I now have P333 and it is listed on Dish networks web site. SO far I see every thing is ok. Hope it stays that way.

Since the OP chose not to even mention what receiver model he is referring to, P3.33 is now available for the 811. Perhaps a moderator can edit his title to something a little better than "P333 is here."

I've gotten the 3.33 update, and I was just watching an OTA HD broadcast ("My Name is Earl", NBC). There was a scene where the entire frame was full of VERY saturated reds. My picture turned disgusting. The scene was "posterized", meaning all of the subtle shades of red were turned into large blobs of flat red. And each blob was bordered by an obvious black outline. (It looked like a red camouflage pattern.) It's a symptom I've never seen before. There are plenty of potential things that could have gone wrong in the display chain (Bad picture on the network end, bad picture on the affiliate end, something bad with the CRT or it's settings...) But, like I said, I've never seen it before, and it's awfully coincidental that it's something that showed up after only a couple hours of viewing on the day the new software was loaded.
Oh, I guess I should mention, I'm using the DVI output on the 811, and I'm running to a well calibrated direct-view CRT.

Ok...I'm new to Dish...is the P333 a new update to work out some of the problems (or bring on more) with the 811. If so, what is this update supposed to accomplish.

Man, you are a brave soul. Maybe you don't know what happened to L3.32, they had to recall it and put back L3.30 to receivers affected.

I will wait a few more days until I hear more comments about it.

If the problem continues, you should call Dish. Unfortunately, we are their guinea pigs and need to report any issues we have with their software updates. If we don't call they will continue to roll out the update to everyone.
