    Well it looks like the 921 software is downloading. I'm looking for the EPG fix.

    Thanks for the update.

    Of course the $999 question is can they implement the EPG fix without breaking something else in the process?

    I've got my fingers crossed that it contains only fixes.

    Well the download just finished it took about 42 minutes.

    About 50 minutes to Up-and-Running. I checked the EPG and have the, "No Information" after the most current (now showing) program. PIP window said that OTA is unavailable for 7 minutes while the guide downloads.
    after the 7 minutes, I have a full 9 day EPG!

    No Dish Home.

    Don't see any changes yet.

    Download finished. 41 minutes 39 seconds.
    Waiting now to see what happens next. No automatic reboot so far.
    I was at the watching the download screen and when it finished it said to power the receiver off to install the software.

    I gave up waiting for the automatic reboot and did a reboot with the power switch.
    It went through its gyrations, installing the software and then did an automatic reboot and I am now running with 274.
    Guide is empty except for the current hour but expect it will take some time for it to get filled up.
    I guess so far, I am thankful that my 921 is still working.

    Downloaded and back up and running. My 9-day guide is back.
    The guide came up with the no-info @ 48 hours. I left it sitting there, and about 10 minutes later, the full guide, all 9 days was back.

    from boylehome:

    That's exactly what happened with mine - and actually it only took about one minute for the 9-day guide to repopulate.

    L274 may have fixed the guide issue; I have nine days of guide for the first time in two weeks.

    The announcement was yesterday - it spools today!

    I hope it also fixes the stuck aspect ratio bug.

    My 921 has a 9-day guide right now (it's got L2.74). I'm going to reserve judgment for a couple of days.

    Same here, however this is the longest I have had the 9 day for in a long time.
