    Just noticed this morning. Don't see mentioned on the forum. Anyone else have this? I have been having dropouts and pixelation all morning think it might be related.

    The L6.56 start spooling a couple weeks before. Perhaps not too many changes to notice.

    We need to see if this fixes the issues with HDMI to many receivers out there with the audio skips...I'll check my version when I get home today.

    Mine's got it, but I had to check to see that it did as I can see nothing that changed either good or bad.

    One thing I have noticed is that I don't get the 'pauses' anymore. Maybe that what it was supposed to fix.

    6.56 fixed the guide button swapping between lists. It now retains the setting through power cycles. Anyone check on the HDMI sound issues with Onkyos yet??:biggthump Dish

    How do I know if my 722 k has the latest update? Where does one find the latest update available? I suppose it is here. Do the 722 and 722K models have different numbering for the latest versions?

    I assume so, because my 722 is operating great and the 722K has major audio problems 1) sync between TV1 video and TV1 analog audio, 2) garbling 3) major variations in the volume during programs 4) audio that sounds like people are talking into a 55 gallon steel drum. I hope they get all the bugs out... I just paid $100 for the upgrade plus $25 for the OTA module and irritation and frustration factor is WAY UP.

    ALSO, I just got off the phone with a very polite female tech from Dish Network who said in effect (not her words... my interpretation) that the software engineers have been working so much on new software versions that my request was ... well, not even on the radar screen; My request was...

    "Why is there no interaction features on TVG for the 722K as on the 722?" She said that she would put it on the list, but gave me the impresssion that the other problems that they were trying to solve are so much more important to many others which is taking all their time...I sure hope they fix all the audio bugs.... oh well... please put this on the list.

    Thanks for any help on my first set of Questions above and I'll keep my fingers crossed the 722k audio gets fixed.

    First, I've had a 722k for many months and do not have the audio problems you mention.

    You can press "menu" twice and see the version of firmware.

    the 722 and the 722k have different software.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the info. Is the latest 722k version L6.56? if so, how long has it been out?

    I also found out that the RF mode may be better than Line mode to keep the background noice from drowning out the voices, that I described earlier.

    Thanks again

    I've heard of 6.57 being out on some but I have still 6.56 and 6.56 is still listed as the current.

    I haven't noticed any fixes with 6.56, except that it hasn't crashed when reordering timers. The Dish Pass timers still record the same program on the listed channel it's mirror at the same time. You'd think that would be an easy fix, but I guess not.

    There is one new bug I've noticed. If the DVR turns itself off using the inactivity timer, the lights on the front of the DVR will remain on even though the DVR is in Standby. Maybe that is why 6.57 was released so soon after 6.56. Who knows.

    The list of bugs is long, so I don't think any new release will take care of all of them.

    I received L6.58 today. I have noticed that the guide preference remains now after a power cycle. Anyone else notice anything new?

    I seem to be noticing a couple seconds of audio drop-out after hitting skip-forward or -back on 6.56
