    We have had L3.60 for about a week. Figured it was poll time. Same polls as before with L3.59.

    This poll actually is two polls in one.

    Poll 1 (How is your 622 behaving after getting L3.59?)
    Pick one of the First three choices to indicate how your 622 is behaving after you received the update.

    Poll 2 (How is your 622 behaving compared to previous version?)
    Pick one of the 2nd group of choices to indicate how your 622 is behaving after you received the update.

    Couple of Tips:
    Be sure to vote in both polls if applicable. If you vote problem ridden, feel free to indicate why you voted that way (Remember we are in the support forum ). Same goes with why you voted it was a step back.

    For people experiencing HDMI issues:
    There is a lot of opinions out here dealing with HDMI. Here is my opinion in regards to this poll. If your HDMI failure occurred between software updates or was not a direct result of 3.60 software upgrade, I would take this out of the equation when evaluating your 3.60 experience. Why? Well my logic is that it points more towards a hardware related issue and this poll main goal is to get a finger in the wind reading on the software.

    Looks like a majority of us a doing just fine.

    I wonder if the others should just exchange their units and see what happens.

    This things has hardly any bugs. I couldn't say that about the SA8300HD that I had with Cox.

    I've noticed more jitters on sd channels now. L3.59 was better for me as I saw no jitter at all on either sd or hd with it. Other than that I haven't noticed any other improvements.

    Since the upgrade my HDMI and line out audio doesn't function.

    Tech support said it's a known issue and to wait for a maintenance fix.

    I'm hearing a lot of audio "jittering" ,not out of sync, more of a quiver or jitter. It has gotten to a point that NBC HD is not watchable.

    I need to change my answer. It is now rebooting just about every day. Annoying.

    Here are the charts as percentages. I know we are still seeing some issues base on the reports. Will be interesting to see the final verdict for 3.60.

    I usually do not turn on my Sound system since the sound from my TV is surround sound. But today I turned on my sound system (Bose Lifestyle Home-theater) using the digital connection and I do not have any sound since the new update.

    Does anyone else have this problem. I have heard from some people who had problems in the past with their 811 and 921 where some home-theaters are not working.

    What type of connection socceteer? Is it digital or RCA? if digital, First place I would check is make sure you are properly configured. I have an Pioneer Elite Receiver and if I loose power, My optical configuration that maps my optical inputs to a given selection on my receiver is lost. Also there I have a setting for analog/digital. If It is flipped to analog and I don't have RCA inputs I dont' get audio.

    As for being a 622 issue, I have not read posts about anyone loosing it on the optical. Have read one post saying they lost it on the HDMI.

    Thanks for the append...I do have optical cables connected to my system. Bose does not seam to have a setup option I can navigate easily. I was playing with it last night and I tried another HD receiver, and I was not getting any sound either, I a am not sure now if it is not the receiver. I was working fine, but with electronics, you never know. I will try a new cable tonight. It look like the cable was fine, I had a light on both sides.

    Oh well. Thanks again I will have to continue to debug it.

    SO it just uses RCA for input? Should be pretty straight forward. Not sure what part of CA you are in, but we did have some power issues during the heat wave. Could it possibly taken out your Bose?

    Hi Ron

    Thanks for the information. After playing with it for a while, I discovered a huge user error. The optical cable was connect on the wrong place. Output instead of Input..!

    Sorry and thanks

    Not sure what's going on but suddenly I've been getting jittering pictures as well as out of lip sync. I've had the 622 only about a month but just now started experiencing these problems. So I would have to say that the new firmware is a step backward. I've also started experiencing pixelation which wasn't present previously.

    My 622 was working fine until the last release. I am now getting jittery video, which I never had before - pressing the replay button seems to fix it for a while.

    My two 622s are performing flawlessly. I 've seen very little or no jitter any longer with this software. I just hope that no new software updates will screw this up.

    I agree, mine are working extremely well. If the courts smash E* for the TIVO copyright infringement in a fashion that the courts dealt him a blow concerning DNS, I have a feeling that my 622's will function very basically with lots of limitations.

    Ditto. My 622 was working perfectly when I went away on vacation a week ago. When I returned home last night, I noticed major lip sync issues and a lot of jitter. Thanks E*! :(

    For the record, my setup is HDMI -> Sony SXRD.
