To get WF going again, load 624 bin and update WF and you are good to go. Enjoy TV with WF.....

MAXHD is down as of yesterday. Charlie up to his old tricks with an ECM. I've read that all the VS weather forecasters are totally down. Will need a new o/s higher than 616 to get channels back.

Thanks for the advice lroy, but 624 "bin" is not for the VS MAXHD. Many others reporting all other VS's are down. I've been searching several other sites and that what I'm getting. What mod. rec. are you using?

If having trouble, do 616, 624 and then update WF

Yeah, did all the procedures, exactly as recomended by many other sites too and nothing. Seems other rec. are working just not the VS MAXHD looking at 119 and 110. I don't care to try for bev programming. Will have to wait on new PEG file from VS. Thanks for the suggestions though.

leroy tipit and/or nydas. I have stopped trying for a working VS MAXHD pointed at 110 and 119 (dn only) with any of PEG files 100614, 100616 and 100624 until anyone can tell me, with these particulars, your getting normal channels at this time. (The other 3 VS rec.'s may work.) Do you?
I am convinced VS will need to release another updated working PEG file after 100624 to fix the ECM of friday.
Thanks.

YOU MAY HAVE A DEFECTIVE WF, IF THAT IS THE CASE, LOAD THE 614, UPDATE WF THEN LOAD 624 AND REMEMBER TO UPDATE WF AGAIN, AND YOU SHOULD BE WATCHING TV. TRY THAT AND GIVE A FEEDBACK. I PREVIOUSLY HAD A PROBLEM WITH WF AND THAT WAS HOW SAME WAS FIXED.

My general impression is that a lot of people have had and are having trouble with 624 and VS MAXHD. However, by patiently working in a precise sequence of loads (see post above) most seem to have got going.

There is a new file (6/27) for the weatherforcaster. Try that one.

Hi guys,

I'm interested in the VS WF for my Ultra. I'd like to get some feedback from those of you who have been using it. How reliable, downtime, freezing, ECM, etc..Also are both Bev & DN open except PPV ?
