Who knows? Maybe 5.1.07 is not an emergency patch. My thought is that it could be because of 5.1.06's many problems. Like on 5.1.06 we had this issue where the Info bar would sometimes freeze, and just about three weeks ago, we have our box set to "Show Channel when tuning." On two occasions, it got stuck on the channel and would not reshow the clock. One time I had to reboot.
Than, like last week, we went back to 5.1.04 and have not had any problems. Wisconsin normally does not do small incremental updates. We giant-leaped from 4.1.06 to 5.1.06, than back to 5.1.04. I think the Florence update, not sure, one of the ODN 4.x versions allows for version roll-back. At least my version roll back to 5.1.04 shows that my division cares and see the problems.
The next step is to find out if 5.1.07 is a pre-requisite for 5.2 or just a bug fix for 5.0.6's problems. If here in Wisconsin, 5.1.07 is just an emergency patch for 5.1.06's issues, and does not require installation before ODN 5.2, no reason to go from 5.1.04 to 5.1.07. Wisconsin might just wait for ODN 5.2 and the "Golden Black Guide."
