I've been with Dish since 2002 and have had the following DVRs: 721, 622, 722, Hopper w/sling & Joey. It seems like it's a never-ending beta test with these things. Issues major/minor seem to hang around month after month or year after year -- they develop new features and bells & whistles while ignoring ongoing annoying issues. Fix one thing and introduce 2 more bugs, etc. I currently have v315 of the software, but the issues I am listing here have been present on my current setup since I had it installed in May 2013. Here we go (all Hopper issues unless otherwise noted): * Can't set update time, always kicks in at 1 am and I have to answer NO, then it will kick in a half hour to an hour later, etc. (Joey) * Search only holds 30 items, drops oldest searches off the list as limit is reached, can't erase single searches or entire list -- just the other day I had to soft reboot the Hopper and it erased the entire Search list for no apparent reason! * Joey loses sync when ff/rew SD programming -- it will randomly jump to whatever spot in the recorded program that it wants to! Never happens with HD progframming during playback. If I use skip ahead/back then I can avoid the issue with SD programming on the Joey. * Progress bar is not real time on Hopper or Joey. When I pause a show then the progress bar will jump to the correct position -- possile relationship to sync issue with Joey on SD recoredings? * Daily schedule of timers defaults to "show all" which is very annoying because you can't just jump up to the dropdown options at the top of the screen without scrolling up to the top of the list of timers which includes 2-5 days worth of expired timers! Dish, just set the default to "scheduled" to avoid this. * I can fairly regularly crash the menu system back to live TV by going into the Remore Manager, chaging a setting or two and then Saving or Exiting this screen. The entire screen except for the PIP will turn black for a few seconds and then the entire screen will go back to full-screen live TV. * Folder count in the My Recordings section are ridiculously inaccurate. They seem to count DELETED shows too! I can have a folder that says there are 5 recordings in it, but when I enter the folder there is nothing in there because I had deleted them at an earlier time or there are 3 recordings still there, etc. * PT Anytime can't handle deleting multiple instances of a show correctly, if I have Folders on. If I have 2-3 recordings of any show and I select that show's title, it goes into a sub-dir list of the show's individual episode titles and I delete them one at a time -- after all are deleted the PT Anytime folder seems to be empty, but it really isn't. I have to go back to My Recordings and then select PT Anytime folder again to see the remaining recordings. This doesn't always happen, but more often than not it does. The only way to avoid this issue seems to be to disable Folders in PT Anytime. * Allow collapsing of multiple episodes into a single icon (Folders) in all user-defined folders (just like PT Anytime can do)! If I have 10 episodes of a show I have to scroll past all 10 individual icons in order to see the next recording, etc. Just collapse them down into a single icon that shows me how many episodes are there and then let me expand that folder if I want to watch that particular show -- much less clutter involved in My Recordings that way. Just give me Folders like PT Anytime has!!! This isn't rocket science people. * Needs a user-defined screen saver to kick in. I have a plasma TV and the screen saver is nowhere to be found. Let me set it for 2 min. etc. for the user-defined activation time. * Try this exercise in frustration: Go to the list of timers and then select Edit Action/Priority. Scroll down off of the first screen of timers and select one on the second or third page of timers. Now select the timer and try to move its priority Up. LOL, are you kidding me? The screen defaults back to the very top after every move! You have to scroll down and find the timer you are editing and see where it is in relation to where you want it to be. I have to manually count how many times I want a timer to move up/down in the list and just press the corresponding button to move the timer that many times in order to avoid having to scroll every time to see where the timer is in the list. Editing Priorities from the Edit Timer screen is equally a joke, you can only see the timer just above and below the timer you are editing. How can Dish have this concept down on other receivers and then devolve into this mess on their flagship DVR? * When I edit my list of favorite channels, after saving the changes the system decides to randomly delete one of my local channels. This happens almost every time and I'm not adding or deleting the locals at all. The Joey always drops channel 29 (local FOX) and the Hopper always drops channel 5 (local MY TV). * Slider is not proportionate in the DVR listing of programs. The bar does not reach the bottom of the screen even though the shows are at the bottom and there are no more to display. Reminds me of Windows and how it used to have non-proportionate scroll bars. Does Dish pay beta testers? If so, sign me up and I will give constructive and concise reports on a regular basis -- I use these DVRs (past and present) to their fullest, most of the time, and often find minor and major bugs. I can see how a casual user would never see or be bothered by the aforementioned items, but as a self-proclaimed power user, I see them and am annoyed.
