    Charlie promised nothing. He may have said it should be out by some date or they were planning on releasing it by some date, but no promise.

    Once Dish works out the issue with sub-channel guide data, it will populate for ANY channel you pick up OTA (not including low-power stations). That may or may not remain tied to paying for the satellite-provided locals though. If your DMA doesn't have locals, you may be screwed.

    I just noticed I have 3.66. Was that a piracy update or was there fixes? I've not been in the loop for a while because work has gotten in the way of my off time :)

    Also, a comment with regard to missed software release dates. I've been acceptance testing and buying software for DOD for about 20 years and I know the exact number of times a software release came out on time with the functionality promised...Zero. I also know exactly the number of times that software was released with a reliability of at least 50% of the specified requirements....Zero.
    I'm not making excuses because there is no excuse IMO, I'm just saying that nobody should be surprised and Echostar definitely does not have a corner on the market with missed promises.

    3.66 was released this week. It only contains a DST date change fix. Nothing more.

    Get over it. You whiners need to get a life or at least get reality. You make it sound like you're the only one out there to sink $$ in a 921, 942 or whatever. Think software development is perfect?? For anybody?? Well, it ain't. So if you don't like E*, try D* or your local cable guys. Don't like that either? Go buy a big roll of tin foil, wrap your arms in it, connect it to your TV and make like a basketball ref signalling a made 3 pointer. Oh, yeah. One more thing. Salesmen and CEOs are always bullish on their products. Always.

    I used to live and MS land and knew some of the developers there. There comment was that anyone that gets any of our new S/W in the 1st 6 mnts is gonna get the bugs that go with it. It takes time to work out the bugs. So IMHO give them the time to work out as many before release as possible. There are problems w/ the present version but I sure don't want something that is gonna be any worse.

    Has anyone heard if the side by side PIP will use the whole 16:9 landscape? I sure hope so.

    I don't see why not. In fact, if it's not 16X9, then I don't want the side by side PIP.

    Cool!
    Because now the PIP window is only in the 4:3 landscape even when your watching a 16:9 broadcast.
    This leads me to believe there may be hardware limits and software won't fix that.

    I hope the next release will move the current PIP into the corners instead of the way it is now in the 4:3 landscape. Side by side will probably be nice for some things but not all things.

    What do you mean? My pip window is 16x9 when showing 16x9 and 4x3 when showing 4x3 content. Works like I would espect it. I don't recall it working any other way with my 622? I would expect the PIP side by side to work in a similar fashion.

    Yeah... The position of the PIP window on 16x9 has always bothered me. Needs to be closer to the outer edge.

    I think he basically meant the same thing you said in your post after this one.

    That the PiP window (regardless of it's shape) is located in the 4x3 safe area or "landscape".

    Sorta like how certain Networks' logos are done as well. Placed in an area thats not far out as one might like on the 16x9 broadcast because they put it in a position that can be used for the 4x3 version as well.

    I am having the problem of my receiver freezing. This happens only when I watch NBC. I got my receiver replaced and still this freeze happens.

    Receiver freeze happens in the following two cases:-

    1. If I watch NBC Programs live, suddenly the receiver freezes.

    2. If I watch recorded NBC programs, suddenly the receiver freezes. The freeze happens at the same place any number of times I watch the recorded program. The freeze can be avoided if I skip recorded program past the freeze location. This kind of freeze happens at random locations of the program. Once happened, the freeze happens always at the same location in the recorded program.

    The only way to come out of the freeze situation is to do reset of the receiver.

    Any hope that this problem will be fixed in the new release.

    My signal strength is good on specific transponders for a given Satellite i.e. 119 or 110. So to check the signal strength what Satellite and transponders should I check?

    Thanks

    Are you watching NBC OTA or satellite feed? If it's OTA, the station is probably putting out some garbage in its ATSC signal or their PSIP computer is in need of a reboot. Call them and tell them the problems you are having.
