Mine came through at 2:41 AM central.
Soon as I hit the home button it was obviously sharper, more pop, everything is definitely at a higher resolution.

It may be my imagination but the guide seems crisper?

When I checked the diagnostics to see which version I had it was also much clearer.

Got mine at 3:17am today. Definitely more crisp look in guide. Didn’t get 527 so not sure of differences.

Did a forced update this morning after seeing U528 available. I usually don’t watch the process all the way through but did this time. Never noticed a external hard drive test. Is this new?

Try doing a Hopper 3 pull the chord reboot and see if the the Hopper 3 Netflix app Ultra HD 4K category list shows up. That is what I have to do sometimes when the Netflix 4K listing is not there.

Did a bunch of times dish needs to look into this has to be software related to the Netflix app I think so

Yesterday I forced 527 and then 528 appeared this morning. Interesting - I didn’t see any guide difference with 527, but do now. Seems to be greater contrast, rather than actually sharper

I updated both of my Hopper3 receivers to U528. I tested Netflix and I am able to watch UHD content (3840x2160).

A glitch found already - watching a program from Saturday, paused at roughly 1:40 of 2:00. Went back 10 seconds while paused, then hit pause to unpause. Needed two presses and then it suddenly jumped to the :51 point, which is where I had started watching from. This was on a Joey.
