    - Keep at most limit doesn't appear to work. I have one timer set to 5, but it has gone well past that.

    - Weather Channel app is blank about half the time I use it. And when adding cities it will sometimes crash and go back to live tv.

    I'll list my bugs or missing items... I'm not sure if they are bugs or just something wrong with my setup.

    - Blockbuster icon when pressed does nothing but exit menu - Resolved - Sitting overnight resolved this issue
    - On Demand icon when pressed does nothing but exit menu - Resolved - Sitting overnight resolved this issue
    - DVR button only lists recordings in icons initially. I would prefer a listing rather or the option to show a list rather than troll through a bunch of icons.
    - Weather Channel app says "Data not available" every time. - Resolved - Sitting overnight resolved this issue
    - Apps icon says "Data not available" every time. - Resolved - Sitting overnight resolved this issue
    - My Account says "Data not available" every time. - Resolved - Sitting overnight resolved this issue
    - External Device doesn't always get recognized.
    - No option in settings to change time of day to do updates. The only thing in the updates option is to set inactivity reminder.
    - Guide doesn't list Sirius/XM Music Channels (6000 channel range) - Resolved - Sirius/XM is now channel 099-##
    - Search feature doesn't search the program guide, even when it's selected. Only searches DVR. - Resolved - Sitting overnight resolved this issue

    It's by design to view icons? I'd at least like to see an option to choose between either.... that way both sides are happy.

    You didn't say when your install was. Mine was yesterday and the BB, VOD, Weather, EHD and search did not work until after last night's update. Now they do. The search function finds every instance of a programon DVR, EHD and EPG when you search All Media,.

    The icons on DVR is like the 922. It took me a while but it grew on me and now I like it. Prefer it actually. But that's me. :p

    I would like to be able to reset the update time.

    My install was yesterday, but there was no software update for me this morning. I'm on the latest version anyways, S203.

    Even on All Media, search function only searches DVR/External HD and not the programming guide.

    The update I was referring to is the regular nightly update. That one updates the guide and some of the other bits but not the software. Have you tried a front panel reset or a power cord reset?

    I found a bug in the number of timers. As soon as I put in the 50th timer I reached the maximum. If I delete a timer, I still get the maximum message even with less than 50. I did a chat last night with tech support, but it still doesn't work today.

    T/S said we should be capable to 96 timers.

    Actually it's just reboot system to clean 'memory leak' because of bugs.
    No other purpose; guide data updating 4 times per day and working fine. No other "bits" require each day reboot, but bugs.

    Here's another weird maximum. A favorites list can only have 90 channels.

    That is weird.

    I know on my 922 I have a list with 200 channels in it.

    Correction, looks like I can go well past 90, but not exactly 91. Will reboot and try again.

    Most of my issues have been resolved by letting the receiver sit overnight. I'm guessing it needed to download some stuff over the internet initially.

    Another observation from letting the receiver sit overnight - Icons all look like they should (with a picture of the show or movie) rather than just a screensaver type swoop or something like that.

    My remaining issues are:

    - Unable to set update time manually.
    - External Device not always recognized on reset.
    - DVR Listing: Should have option to change from icon view to listing view.

    We're talking about the same thing. I was under the impression that software updates (if any) are done at the same time as guide updates.

    You're probably not going to get this one... They took the GUI design from the 922, and they never had an option to list rather than icon-view on that receiver either.

    They are. When there is a software update as you stated. Typically when someone says nightly update we are referring to the every night EPG update. If there is a software update it will be refereed to as such and usually by number.

    As I said in another post, it took a few days or so for me to get used to the iconsand now I prefer them. My 74 year old eyes can see what I'm looking for a lot quicker.:p

    Absolutely different things.
    EPG updating four times per day on regular basis.
    FW updating on own schedule - see EKB H2k FW page for example.
    Night reboot is doing because of bugs in FW what is a case for buildup system tables' corruption/ 'memory leak'/etc

    Yeah, I like them too. I wouldn't mind if there was an option to change to list format, though. It might make it easier to find/delete some things in list-mode.

    While you might be correct... do you have evidence beyond your own opinion to back this up? I'm not saying you are wrong, but you should probably provide proof and links to support this statement.
