    Never a single problem with my 721 until the last s/w update. Then I had some minor nits, but was willing to put up with them. Now, all of a sudden, there's a serious issue.

    For instance, I have a timer set to record "The Daily Show" M-F from 11:00 to 11:30. For the last few nights, it has instead recorded from 11:30 to 12:00 (on the correct channel, at least). I've deleted all the timers and recreated them, which did not help. I doublechecked the timers, and the times are correct. It seems to do this with ALL of the timers, starting when they should stop.

    Has anyone else seen this? I've just done a "hold the power button" reboot, and will see if that helps.

    DISH, can you PLEASE REVERT BACK TO THE LAST SOFTWARE REVISION. version 1.75 is absolutely horrible!

    Disgusted,
    Ken

    There is something similar going on with the 921's. Also, I read elsewhere that 501/508's are resetting about 12:45 a.m. -- whether they're recording or not. Here's the link to the 921 forum: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=43767. I guess these anomolies all began with the latest update.

    I got one for you (on the 721). I noticed tonight right after midnight that my guide would not work. I wanted to set a timer for The 4400, so I did a search for 4400. The first one that came up was for Sunday at 12:00pm. I hit select to record it and the timer would not create! I looked closer and noticed that under 105 USA was 12/31/1969 07:59pm!!!! OMG! What is up with that? I unplugged, plugged in again after 2 minutes. It validated the drive, yada yada, still no guide and still thinks The 4400 comes on in 1969. Love my 721, but this is annoying!

    I noticed the Monay 12:00am timer is shows up right, but the Thurday 12:00am is showing 1969!

    A number of the 4400 were obviously abducted in 1969. That's the only logical explaination.

    I fixed it by unplugging for 5 minutes and plugging it back it. Did all of the boot up stuff, then everything finally worked right. Still don't know how it got 1969! What satellite would that be, Sputnik?

    FYI, a few programing languages base their internal time functions on the amount of time that has passed since Jan 1, 1970.
