    L4.47 for the ViP622/ViP722 began spooling to some customers last night. Please use this thread to discuss your experiences and any bugs found.

    This release is only spooling to customers that were on L4.46. Release notes can be found here

    I got 4.47 last night. The audio problem that existed on certain OTA sub channels seems to be fixed, but now my Nashville NBC affiliate doesn't come in AT ALL. Previously I had a signal strength in the low-to-mid 80's. The signal strength on all the others seems unchanged. Here we go again...

    4.47 last night and all seems to be well with Fox the only OTA I had problems with. Did not have any recorded Fox to see if audio was restored or not. PBS here in Colo. Springs is so sporadic (on air/off air/no audio) that I could not tell if OTA was out or not.

    Did you try deleting and adding this channel manually? I had to do this for a couple of channels post-4.47 update which were being reported as having great signal strength but were not showing anything.

    I also received L 4.47 last night for my 722. It fixed OTA audio loss on 31-1, a CW station out of Sacramento.

    I still experience 2-5 second occasional video blackouts on live OTA and Sat. channels as well as on the play back of recordings.

    Got 4.47 last night. EXT timers are working normally now that i have restored the power connection to the docking station. :grin: Must have pulled loose somehow. All is well with EXT recording.

    My Atlanta NBC channel has all but disappeared. When I check it the signal strength is OK but there are a ton of errors. My other channels are fine. I'm going to try to adjust the antenna to see if that works. Hopefully, it's not related to 4.46/4.47 since that's when it started.

    4.47 fixed my audio problems.
    Not had much time to look for other problems but I can say that I am getting all OTA channels unlike others are reporting.

    Did a soft-reset (hold down power button) and I hard reset (unplugging) and no dice. My CBS OTA channel is still gone, but my ABC could be detected, but the signal is very spotty. It won't stay locked in. It blinks between a black screen and the yellow Error 739 box. PBS still comes in loud and clear. Just verified that media center PC attached to same antenna can still see those channels. So this update didn't help me. :-(

    I didn't even know I had received L4.46 (the 622 was always recording, so I didn't ever check), but I didn't experience any problems. Checked last night just for the heck of it and had L4.47. No problems with either version here.

    Not all is good. I'm still loosing audio on the 2 FOX sttions un central NY, Rochester and Syracuse. However, if I do the Menu, 6,9 and then get a lock on any digital channel and then "View TV" I get the sound back. Put a call into Dish and they are making a report.

    The one OTA local that I lost with 4.47 is restored.

    As others suggested, re-adding that digital channel in the Locals Menu brought it back. It was already showing up in the locals list (in the Local Channels Menu: MENU-6-9) from previously being added, but apparently got "broke" in the update somehow.

    Some suggested to merely highlight that channel in the list until it showed green (which it did), but that was not enough to get it back. I had to select "Add Locals" and enter the digital channel, select Done, and back the rest of the way out of the menus.

    I only get a signal strength of 70 now, where I had one in the mid-80's before 4.47, but it's working, at least for now. ALL OTA channels and subs are working properly now.

    WSMV (NBC, Channel 4) actually broadcasts on VHF channel 10. The other Nashville stations use UHF channels. I get a signal strength of 100 on the CBS, ABC, and FOX affiliates from Nashville, but only 90 from the NBC affiliate. I did not notice any change from L446 to L447 in that regard, but L447 did fix all my OTA audio problems.

    I had recorded 3 OTA programs under 446, and there was no audio at all. I copied those to an external hard drive, and tried playing them from there, but still no audio. Next day, I got 447. All 3 programs had their audio again! This was a wierd bug, and I'm glad they got a fix for it quick!
