From my experience, the Yellow line is either 7ks or a mix of 2 and 3k series. Don't recall any 6ks for awhile now.

No GR is exclusively 7Ks with only a handful of the legacy consists. 6Ks have been moved to OR/SV/BL

Rode in car 7525 on the Green line a few days ago. Still had the new car smell too.

I was in DC last week, connecting from Union Station to Dulles, Red to Silver. Had the old 3000 series stuff on Red, but a nice spanking new 7000 series on the Silver. Very nice indeed.
Next stop, Willoughby

Regarding the LCD screens in the 7000-series trains, I noticed this morning that in the lower right corner the promotional video about Metro has been replaced with a video commemorating the Capitals' win. I wonder if that has rolled out to all 7ks already or if it's a work in progress.

The content on the 7K video displays are not "rolled out". The cars routinely connect to WMATA's WiFi network and automatically update themselves when changes are made to the content stored on the servers.
