    So two versions (6.30/6.70) are being released for the 722? What says that you get which one?

    Or am I seeing this wrong? :confused:

    I did change other post's topic, but it didn't appear in a list - L6.30 is for 622 when L6.70 for 722, sort of 'fork' in FW development.

    Could this be related to the "coming soon" Sling Adapter (Sling 700U)? Aren't I a dreamer....

    Oh my. My designs/renovation, that they did not use, years ago were/are far better. So much for 6 months of work. The checks cleared though.

    My 722 got 6.70 and there is a bug.

    When using folders to view recordings, If you hit info, and then cancel, it takes you all the way to the top level. Its horrible when you are looking for a specific recording. I hope they fix this ASAP.

    The new color scheme with 6.70 on my 722 is just terrible looking in my opinion. It looks so unprofessional, if that term can be applied to a color scheme.

    The appearance just does not look as crisp, clean, and well, polished as the previous ones did in the other versions.

    This one reminds me of some of the schemes I have seen in some of the smaller motels we have stayed in when traveling around the country.

    I really think Dish could have done a better job.

    Also, after all the versions, the Caller ID History still does not work. Granted, it is a small thing but it is an indication of the overall quality of their work.

    Go to Midnight Lounge and when prompted, enter a 4 digit numerical password. You will be requested to enter it a second time to confirm your selection.

    Select OK and from that point on, it will require the numerical password to get into the Midnight Lounge section. The section will still show up on the screen but you will need the password to make any selections.

    You had best write your password choice down as there is no way to recover the password that I can see if you forget it.

    You can also go into the Locks menu under Main Menu, Locks and select Hide Adult if you want to remove the adult channels from showing up at all. You can review the other lock selections on that menu and make your other selections as you wish as well.

    Hope this helps.

    The thing I hate most about this update is the removal of the Dish Online feature. I used this quite a bit to find free TV shows to download to my DVR. The new software has the TV Shows feature, but it doesn't let you sort by free shows only. The new Dish Online website lets you watch shows for free online only and not set them to download to the DVR. I've already sent feedback on the Dish Online website to allow scheduling downloads to the DVR through Dish Online, but I wouldn't hold my breath since they just introduced the new Google TV with Dish integration. Their not making any money with the Dish Online feature, but they have the potential to make money with Google TV.

    Pretty sure the online stuff is there. If anything they just brought it up to the front, not got rid of it. You are right though I see no way to sort by free, but most of them seem to be.

    I just got my update to L670 while I was actually watching the box and it happened in the background, about 2 hours before the nightly/daily update was due to fire off. I found out when I went to go to the Menu panel and the old way did not work and I got the new "graphics". This not only was I surprised that it was done in the background, but that it is so disoriented and juvenile in design and look. I do GUI's all the time (and did for DISH years ago that beats the hell out of this that they never used) and what they have done is something one would evolve from, not go to. Even my cheap cheezy clients would not go for this. If DISH thinks that this is an upgrade, I suggest that they stop thinking. I'll be far less painful on us. Including reprogramming my HOne remote.

    Throughout my years in the graphic and publishing industry (having published in 27 languages) I have learned how to tell what type of "professional" created the final product, what their professional expertise is, what country they're from and what language they speak just from reading the "instructions" that were created or looking at the pictures. And this was done by a set of lower level Engineers.

    I know that dish on demand screen doesn't look like the rest of the UI, but does anyone know for sure that Dish isn't planning on changing the rest of the UI to look like it? I don't really think it's any more ugly than the regular screens, but they should be consistent.

    What *does* annoy me though is the yellowish brown color on the guide now when I use HD Only list. I kind of understand why they did it as the blues were maybe too similar to each other, but they should at least let the user configure those built in list colors.

    I had a difficult time following your post, but what "reprogramming" did you find needed?

    It must have rolled out to most 722's as mine has it this morning. After doing a hard reboot I poked around a bit.

    The new graphics are just that, new graphics. The new menu structure is also just that, a new menu structure. None of it improves my experience.

    I don't know why they did it. Since there are many things I'd like to see done that are not included, I hope this money was spent to achieve some real improvement that we'll see "soon".:rolleyes:
