    Oops. Looks like my fingers got ahead of my brain. Again.:grin: I am curious though if the folks who have been able to view IAL see 1080p on the regular HDMI test.

    Anyway, I just checked and IAL is downloaded. Don't know if it was a result of the call to Dish yesterday in which the CSR told me it should download in 72 hours after getting 6.12 and then taking my receiver number and telling me to call them back if I didn't get it last night. Maybe it was because it's not on the other 622 that got 6.12 at the same time last week. I'll give it a try later today.

    I have two VIP 622's.
    'I Am Legend' showed up on one of them a few days ago.
    The other VIP 622 still has not seen it.

    So if you have more than one VIP check your other one and it might have the 501 PPV 'I Am Legend' on it.

    And no I did not try it...yet!

    I, like grog, have 2 622s with IAL on the one I called about yesterday but not the other. And we tried it today. It worked on my 622>Toshiba 65HM167. That being said, I can't say we were overly impressed. Don't know if that's because the regular HD movies are as good or if it's because we had cataract surgery a couple of months ago and our brains haven't fully reprogrammed to use these multi-focal length lenses yet. :grin: In any case, that may be the last 1080p I rent.

    I have two 622's also and when the software arrived IAL was there also, the same night. The TV display showed 1080p/24. Can't say anything about the quality of the movie since I didn't watch it. (Just spent $2.99 to see the 1080p/24 screen:) )

    I watched it yesterday on my Sony 60A-3000 using a 622. At first I thought something was terribly wrong because the picture was blinking on/off every 15 seconds or so during the "test". After that it started playing but the picture (and sound) froze on occasion. I was able to watch about 98% of the movie without any problems but an occasional freeze up prevented 100%. I could not figure out though how to see what the actual resolution was on my tv but it certainly was HD quality. It could have been 720p or 1080I for all I knew. I do not yet own a Blue Ray player so I couldn't compare the two.

    I saw no options for cancelling the movie after clicking rent.

    Press display on your remote and the incoming resolution will show up in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

    I doubt though that you were getting it in 1080p. More than likely, it was in 1080i.

    I ran the test on my Sony 55A2000, and it failed the test. I'm pretty sure it can handle 1080p/24, but it didn't work. It said "Unsupported Signal Detected".

    My Toshiba Info showed it to be 1080p.

    I have a 60A3000 as well, it is not compatable with the 622's current software, yes it can display all frame rates of 1080p, but for some reason it won't work witht he 622, and the best is calling the "tech support" or "advanced tech support" They are nothing more than CSR's with 2 more weeks of training, Don't believe me try for yourself, they'll blame it on the tv and keep trying to give you Sony's number.

    I tried every button I could think of and could'nt see the resolution. I use a universal remote and it's quite possible that I don't have display programmed into one of the buttons. I know I tried info but that didn't give the res.

    It's weird that some folks can't rent it at all while it is down rezzing and playing for others.

    As I posted above, my Toshiba Info showed 1080p. However, like a couple of other posters, when I ran the HDMI analysis while the movie was playing, the 622 showed 1250i_50hz. I called and the CSR had no explanation. I read rwalsh's posts above so I emailed and asked for a refund :D

    That's a bug in 622 FW enumeration - you should worried what your TV shows for Info command.
    It must support 1080p24 format. Period.

    That's because you don't have a Sony A3000 ;)

    Yes, your set CAN handle 1080p/24. Welcome to the unsupported club even though your set is supported.

    And I was able to watch IAL on my Tosh so it passed the Dish test and as stated above, my Tosh shows 1080p so I guess I have nothing to worry about :) But I am curious so if you can explain in plain English that an old coot can understand, what is 622 FW enumeration?

    It's SW process, what OS doing for PnP device during negotiation. Your PC doing this each time when you plug USB flash, for example.

    You are not alone.
    It did download to one of my 622's but the other 622 is still waiting for the download of IAL.

    I expect it will show up in a couple of weeks +- 72 hours. :D
