Updated both of my Hopper3 receivers to software version U547 and Joey3 to software version U574.

Dish finally fixed the MoCA Summary and MoCA Details screens under the Whole Home Diagnostics.

Dish also changed the appearance of the Dish On Demand screen.

After the software update Google Assistant stopped working on my Living Room Hopper3. I fixed this by unlinking Dish under Home Control on the Google Home app on my Iphone8. This removed all 3 Dish devices. I then used the Activation Code on my Living Room Hopper3. It then found all 3 Dish devices. I then assigned each of the Dish devices to the correct room. Everything is now working correctly and I can control all 15 lights.

Started the update 85 mins ago and it has been on this screen for 35 mins. Normally it doesn't take this long. Any ideas how long it takes for this newest update

The options button on the On-Demand menu no longer works. That's a bad thing.
What did the options button on the On-Demand menu used to do? I never used options with the On-Demand menu.

I must say that I kind of like the new On Demand layout and navigation. I think that this is what they should have done with the Gamefinder app, instead of making Gamefinder a banner. It is easy to use the Skip Forward and Skip Back buttons to scroll left and right through the On Demand screen, as well as using the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons to page up and down. Anyone trying to do either of these things with a 54 remote in the Gamefinder app will be sorely disappointed.

Hmmm the "self powered" requirement for an external HD seems to have disappeared from mydish
I don't think that has actually been a requirement for quite awhile now. I use Western Digital My Passport 1TB USB3.0 external hard drives, and they work quite well. It is nice to see support for larger drives finally being added, though.

That is odd. I updated three Wally receivers yesterday (my two plus my sister's) and on all three, this update went surprisingly quickly.
Finally moved to this just now. Going on 100 minutes.
For me, it actually took longer for that screen to go away (and for it to finish going through the necessary reboot) than it took for the progress bar to make it all the way across during the download.
