    I've got S222 on one Hopper, still on S221 on the other two. Available Joey software is still S271. So far not really noticing any differences. This must have been a stability update. That's fine with me! As long as there are no more S213's I'm alright.

    So who has S222, and if you do, notice anything different?

    S222 appeared on my Hopper yesterday (the 13th) and for the first time in quite a while the Hopper froze up requiring a reboot to get everything back. I sure hope this was just a fluke.

    Looks like all of my Hoppers have S222 now. Available Joey software is still S271.

    Not sure... Must be a stability update. Maybe that's why there's no update for the Joeys. Nothing significant, just Hopper stability updates.

    You know when they start using the words "a stability update" it was coverup of real changes what is underlying user interface, actually all real bugs is there, at that level.
    So using the phrase is say nothing, less meaning just then mention new version number. :(

    Since the update my braodband connection isn't recognized. The connection shows it's OK, but if I try to access any broadband option, I get a message that says I need a boradband connection.

    I noticed this last night. More troubleshooting today.

    Problem resolved itself the next morning. DOn't know if it was the nightly reboot or some outside network issue.

    BUG
    Adding a Pioneer A/V Receiver in Remote Manger requires you to select Audio Amp rather than Audio Receiver.

    Selecting Audio Receiver dunps you back to the Remote Manager main page.

    My Seek & Record timer set to HD Preference recorded the SD version of a show when there was also an HD version. Going to specify HD instead in the hope it works.

    It seems like with the latest software I have to turn my sound up from 20-22 to 26-28 depending on channel. Has anyone else noticed this?

    continuing bug / annoyances

    When all three tuners are in use recording and you are watching a prerecorded program, when you are finished with the program you are watching and press Stop then Delete, you cannot delete that program, because the hopper will not switch the picture to one of the tuners that are recording; instead, the picture remains on the stopped program you were watching and therefore won't delete the program because it thinks it's still being used.

    Using "My Recordings" with Folder view, when you delete a recording, the count for number of items in the folder sometimes updates correctly, but most times remains at the previous count.

    When watching a recorded program, selecting Pause, then Skip Fwd to advance a frame and then Play, causes sound to cut out for about 5 seconds and about the time the sound comes back the picture jumps ahead about 10 seconds.

    When Closed Captions are on and you Skip Back (and sometimes with other operations), captions cease working. To get the back on you have to Skip Back again. Seems to almost be a toggle, on/off/on/off...

    When looking at the Daily Schedule, if you change any entry (skip or restore) the list jumps backs to the beginning, causing you to have to scroll down to where you were before.

    Would be nice if the Timer limit was greater than 96.

    The Skip Fwd problem that showed up with S213, where the picture does not keep up with rapid presses of Skip Fwd.

    Dish Online can't read the timer list on the Hoper.
