    If it's anything like mine, when we try to add a channel, NOTHING shows up. No signal at all. It's as if there's no antenna attached, or something. But that's not the problem because my TV tuner still works...

    I am getting the exact same issue.

    It is as if the antenna is disconnected.

    It is very frustrating.

    When I first got the 4.03l update, all my OTA channels still appeared in my EPG. But every chan would give me a signal lost screen. I used to average about 85% signal strength before.

    After deleting and rebooting, a Scan All gives me nothing. Manually adding channels gives me nothing.

    I have tried deleting, rebooting (both ways), and rescanning several times with same result: NOTHING.

    Maybe the update disabled the OTA tuner?

    Yeah, it seems like it at least. I deleted all the channels, and then the satellite locals automatically mapped down to those numbers. But I'm missing the sub-channels of course, and it's not HD. How did we live without HD before? I can't remember either.

    I wonder if there was a bad batch of receivers made. I became a Dish customer mid-December of last year. My installation was postponed a couple of days because they had no 622s in stock, so I bet that it was manufactured in the last part of 2006.

    My 622 was installed 12/10/2006. Never had a problem receiving OTA with 3.65, 3.66, 4.01 or 4.03.

    In fact 4.01 fixed a problem with guide data on the local Orlando, FL Fox affiliate.
