    I have found a myriad amount of problems with this version (L750).
    I was wondering if anyone else has had major problems?

    I am also wondering why the Dish Network™ Software Release Notes forum is not being updated?

    Thanks!

    Sure there have been times when my remote control hangs up,if I wait my 722k will reboot by itself then everything will be OK until the next time.If I can't wait I reboot it myself.:(

    This did not happen with L690.

    I just got the update yesterday and I have not noticed anything out of the norm yet. What issues are you seeing so I can keep an eye out for them.

    Big time problems, it takes 4 seconds after you push any number on the remote for the receiver to show it. The guide is super slow and caller ID no longer work. :nono2: I'm sure their is a few things I left out but I'm tired of messing with it.

    How do you do a system reset with out losing all you're recordings?

    I don't have caller ID so I can't speak about that. But I am not having the guide problem like you are. It is working flawless for me so far.

    I don't know when the update happened but I've had problems with some timers that are set for "new" recording all.

    Been having that problem for a while...see thread about skipped timmers.

    Dish is sending me a new box...but i have my doubts as it seems it is tied to BLockbuster Movie Pass.

    My remote was very slow, as was the guide, so I didn't even look for the update, I just pulled the plug for 10 seconds. Everything seemed to be back to normal after that, though I had to wait a while for the guide to re-set. I could see what was in the guide for the full 9 days, but I got a message that the guide needed to download and I couldn't set a recording for 20 minutes or so.

    I haven't ever lost recordings by doing a cold boot like this, and it's often been said that after receiving a new software version that you should unplug your receiver, like you'd re-start a computer after updates.

    Yes, my wife has complained about skipped timers. I just had to do a re-boot again. I think we have been averaging about one re-boot per day.

    Hi Misty;

    L7.50 has the usual and predictable number of issues ... some of them already known to Dish.

    Reboot the receiver using the red button to fix the caller ID

    I'm only seeing it with timers on HGTV (112) & I'm certainly not having a problem with skipped timers, I'm getting too many recordings! I could manually go through the schedule & skip them, but it's a lot of trouble because most HGTV programs are shown twice in a day.

    That's my problem too, except with more channels than just HGTV. Every now and again my guide shows no guide information and when that happens and I get my guide back most of my timers are messed up and I get shows recording from last year even though the timer is set for NEW. So I have to go through and skip all the repeats. The last time it happened (last week) I had 12 of my 30 timers recording repeats.

    So how's this quirk? -

    Got a new box a few weeks ago, and one timer that I had before and redid was to tune into Today, Mon-Fri and have the tune-in on the OTA station. At first, it wouldn't do it all. Now, with 750, this morning I turned on the TV to find that it had tuned itself to a different OTA station, and I had set it correctly. Ideas anyone? Dish?

    Don't know if this will help.I set up all my timers by selecting the program from the guide(OTA or SAT).So far I have not had any problems with timers,but I do have an issue with the remote control commands freezing up the receiver,then I have to do a reboot to get it to start working right.But it's not constant I have some days it doesn't freeze up,other days it does.:confused:

    It did start with L750,had zero problems with L690.:confused:

    I've had problem with slow remote response and the remote not working at all until rebooting my 722k. Also, I've had problem where old programs are recorded when the timer is set for new episodes only. I set timers to record no more than 5 episodes and the timer where new was ignored, the 5 episode limit was also ignored. I haven't noticed any missed recordings as of yet.

    Los Gatos,...
    Had a weird one last night. From the recorded shows screen, I selected a show that was currently recording so we could watch it. In fact there were two shows recording. I selected the show and hit Select. A frozen picture popped up from a completely different channel (or recording). Hitting Stop killed it, but it was very odd nonetheless. I was then able to select the show I wanted.

    If it sits idle, like first thing in the morning or evening after work, it won't respond to the remote at all until I press the power button under the front trap door. Very irritating. Btw, our 922 started doing this too last week. :(

    It also has random slow remote response. But, that is not 100% new. Just a lot more often than what it used to be.

    I continue to have problems with the 722k. Should I even bother calling DISH with this? I assume that they know we are having problems, but I also know what happens when you ASS-U-ME!
