We have a fairly crappy signal from our CW station in the San Jose area - I've been trying to record it, but it's not really watchable. But, here's the annoying part. If I'm watching a recorded show, or some other channel, with the bad signal recording in the background, Various alerts pop up on the screen to tell me about it. These end up being very confusing because at first it's not clear that it's an alert about something happening in the background. There are also not enough choices to dismiss the dialog boxes (one of them just has a "help" button - not very useful). If Dish is going to pop these up, they need to be better worded, and have ways to quickly dismiss them...... Occasionally, after this happens, the 622 needs to be powered off and back on - it stops showing video of any kind (has happened twice now).
