    I too have it. I hope it contains a fix for the guide download problem.

    Hmmmm. It appears to me that the release notes threads are started by the Community Manager. So how do I ask?

    One thing it didn't fix is the problem with the guide update. After discovering my guide only had two days left on it, I did a hard reboot. Darned.

    Ditto! My 722 will reboot itself automatically at random times, but not always download the guide leaving me with recordings going on for hours until I manually stop them. Have had to perform 3 hard reboots in the past week just to get the guide info to download. When is this fix coming??

    Thanks for the update, Ray. I will check tonight to see what software version my 722 is running.

    When mine updates it changes my timers. I look ahead to see what is going to be recorded and skip the ones I don't want to record. The next day all my user skips are gone. Or if I restore a program that was being skipped because it was not a new episode that gets reset after the update.

    About the time that this update appears to have been applied, my 722 started randomly crashing. Blank TV1 and TV2 outputs, no response to remote including power button. No lights on the front panel. Holding down the power button to force a reboot resets the receiver. It always seems to crash when I'm playing back a recorded program from my DVR.

    If this fixed stability issues, it induced new, annoying ones that I'm falling victim to.

    Have you tried unplugging the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plugging back in to have the receiver perform a hard reboot? This clears all RAM and loads everything like a computer. Please let me know. Thanks.

    Did a full power unplug reset last night. I was watching a DVR program just now and after about ten minutes, WHUMP. This time the TV1 output went dead, and DVR playback stopped. After about a minute, TV1 came back.
