    We have had L3.65 for a few days so I Figured It is time for the poll. Same poll as before so be sure to pipe in.

    This poll actually is three polls in one.

    Poll 1 (How is your 622 behaving after getting L3.65?)
    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 all 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.

    L365 has improved my receivers as compared to L363. Neither are better than L360. It seems that the software engineers brought back old bugs from L351 and before. I do like the addition of the episode information. I prefer that the bugs get squashed before adding enhancements.

    The only reason I voted that it is a step back is because I don't think many of us are getting consistent signal readings on 129 (on transpondor 7 in my case) for the digital (HD) locals. They seem to go from the lower 60s on one day to the lower 80s on another. No rhyme or reason for the inconsistency. I know about black outs or whatever they call them but this is not the case. I'm also not sure whether this is a software issue or not.

    Hard to tell any difference for me.

    The only good things added recently are the original air dates (which usually are accurate... although Nothing But Trailers is always dated something like 6/6/03).

    I still get the audio dropouts on HD Content which can usually be cured by jumping back 15 seconds.

    Also, is it just me or have they improved the overscan problem? Bringing up "normal" doesn't chop off the sides like it did (based on the fact that tickers and bugs aren't cut in half anymore)

    We've noticed that the Partial Zoom seems to 'squish' things more than when we had L3.60 - my husband hates to watch the flattened people and so is using the Zoom more often which I don't like because it cuts sooooo much off the top and bottom.

    L365 is some better then L363 because it fixes the major audio loss, however L365 is still not at good as L361 was for me. So, L363/365 is a step back from L361 because I still get some audio problems, mostly studder and a few drop outs that correct quickly without requiring any action. L361 was very solid for me.

    I've had my 622 since February and have only had about three reboots during that time... until L3.65. Now I've had four reboots in the past three days!

    If I'm watching a playback of a show that's still being recorded, everything locks up when the recording ends. I get a flash of LIVE TV on the screen in the upper right hand corner, then everything freezes. Nothing on the remote works. After a minute or two, the DVR reboots. I've missed the beginning of three shows as a result of this, because the new recordings don't start until after the reboot is complete.

    Everything was working great until this new software was downloaded. Give me back L3.61!

    I voted "improved" because it seems to have cleared the audio problem I had, where the audio would drop for a half second every three seconds and would last for thirty seconds and then clear. I only had this about once a day and I have not had it since 365. I don't have any other issues that I am aware of.

    I had 2 issues of no audio at all as well as minor audio sync isssues with L.3.63.

    L3.65 seems to have cleared them up.

    Just had a new problem last night. While watching a recording made on 10/03 it started making a rapid snapping or cracking sound. Tried skipping back with no cure then skipped forward a couple of times and it finally quit making the noise.
    With the above and the severe pixelation from time to time, I have to say that my 622 is definately much worse now than it was with the previous software version.

    Ron, I had to vote both “Working better than previous” – Because most of my audio drop-out issues that started with L3.63 were improved by L3.65. But I also had to vote “A step back” because the pause/jump-to-live bug that started in L3.63 and remains L3.65 is really a PITA. :)

    Well AVJohnnie.. if it was also in 3.63 then it was not a step back from the previous version. ;) :lol: Hopefully they will get that one address in the next update. It can be annoying for sure.

    Needed one more option "3.65 is still a step back from 3.60"! Then you would have had all your bases covered!!!!:lol:

    Thought about that one.. Maybe a seperate poll but I wanted to be consistent so when I update the charts it reflects the same question. Basically I see it as 3.63 took us off track, 3.65 got us back on track but for some we will might be a bit back from where 3.60 had us. HOpefully next release everyone one will leapfrog over 3.60 in terms of features and reliability.

    Voted a step back from previous version. No, I don't lose audio to a point where I have to reboot the receiver but since the update I've been getting audio and video drop outs. It was better to reboot the receiver once a day than having to deal with audio and video loss constantly while watching a program. The most annoying thing was decrease in PQ. I don't know if this is Dish's fault or the channel. but several HD channels don't look like HD most of the time.

    Absolutely correct Ron... But I have to get my digs in somehow... ;) After all, don’t want E* to keep this one on the back-burner for too long… :p

    If it’ll help any, I’ll keep my fingers crossed... :lol:

    I had no problems with the ViP622 until this latest update.

    The problems I've experienced have happened randomly and only once for each problem. All have required a reboot.

    1. Changing to an OTA channel - no audio or video on any channel.

    2. Changing from an OTA channel - no audio or video on any channel.

    3. Changing from an OTA channel - a frozen Point Dish screen pops up.

    4. Re-positioning OTA antennae - no audio or video on any channel when closing "Local Channels" screen.

    5. Hitting Stop when watching a DVR event and switching to an OTA channel - no audio or video on any channel. (This has actually happened several times.)

    :nono:

    Well, 3.65 helped with the major audio problems, and seems to have cleaned up a lot of the macroblocking on my 622 for whatever reason, but it's introduced a few new issues that are just as annoying, like the buffer bug.
