    I feel sorry for all those people waiting for the latest update so that they can get the additional storage. Here I am with the update and I don't intend on getting any additional storage or paying the $40.00 for the privaledge. I don't ever get close to filling the hard drive because I usually watch them soon after they're recorded.

    My 622 tuner 2 video is now garbled. This happened immeidately after L4.41 was downloaded last week. Any events that use tuner 2 are not recorded and the reason is logged as "SIGNAL" (problems with the signal). Hard power off/on reboots have not solved this problem. Tuner 1 and OTA is fine. This problem did not exist prior to L4.41. (There is a separate thread on this issue but I wanted to make sure it was mentioned in this L4.41 thread.)

    Actually the 622 has TWO USB ports, one in front and one in back.

    However, it seems you can only use one at a time. I had an external HDD plugged into the one on the back and wanted to connect my PocketDish. I plugged the PD USB cable in the front and got an error message indicating only one USB device can be used at a time. I had to unplug the USB HDD before it would allow the PD to be used from the front port. :confused:

    That would work too, good idea.

    One thing 441 hasn't fixed is the black screen of death. Happened again this morning. The last one was July 29. My notes show a BSOD event once or twice a month. My original 622 was replaced in the spring of 2006 due to BSOD problems. Whatever causes it seems immune to equipment replacement or software upgrades.

    Yeah that would be kind of dumb wouldn't it, two connections but only one actual port at a time, I guess so if you have something permanently plugged in the back like in a hard to reach cabinet you are just SOL. That is kind of dumb design IMO. Oh well, maybe the 722 is different. :)

    You do not have to unplug the 2nd device, you just have to power it down so the receiver does not see it (for now). They did say they were working on a way to have multiple USBs at the same time.

    Contact Dish again. Most current BSOD when just watching have been traced to hardware. I haven't seen one since they replaced mine.

    My 2 622's are still on 4.05 I want to call tomorrow morning to activate the external storage but it won't work without the L4.41 so this sucks, they said in the tech forum last night that it will be rolled out as a staggered release, tomorrow is D-Day and still only the first 200 seem to have the update, I bought two drives already hooked up, I emailed the tech forum last night and the ceo address and have had no reply. Here is a copy of my email.

    I have 2 622's on my account. I use to always be one of the first to get software updates but recently was asked to do a favor and exchange my receivers so they could be tested by DISH to isolate some tech issues they were having, since the exchange I seem to be the last to get updates.

    More importantly I have purchased 2 750GB external drives that I want to call and activate tomorrow on the launch of external storage, however I still have software version L4.05 on both receivers I need L4.41 for the external drives to work, please add my receivers to the list to get the new L4.41 update so I can activate and use the new external storage feature.

    Thank you,

    The same can be said for some of the HD channels received from Dish. Regardless of whether the programming content is in SD or HD, the digital OTA channels still take more hard drive space to record than the Dish SD channels. The Dish "HD" icon, really only tells you that you are receiving programming from a digital source. It is not indicative of HD programming.

    Over the air channels are included in the "All HD" group in the guide because they are digital (ATSC DTV) signals, that like the Dish HD channels, could potentially contain HD content. They should be treated the same way in the recordings list so that we could determine which programs are consuming the majority of our hard disk space.

    An indication of a recordings file size would be just swell too. :)

    Don't forget that your OTA recordings take as much disk space as a Dish HD recording, even if they are SD programs. Yes, those black bars on the sides of the SD picture on your OTA channels are being recorded with the rest of the programming.

    In case you guys are interested, the people over at Slickdeals.net found a decent deal on a 500GB USB 2.0 External HDD. It's through Buy.com. After rebate it comes to $97, shipped. Here's the link to the product discussion:

    They said last night that only one at a time right now, future updates will fix that.

    Also, right now USB hubs don't work.

    Typically software is released at night but Dish can release it at any time.
