Beginning last evening the info banner on my 612 would not disappear after the normal 5 seconds or so. To get it to go away I now have to hit the info button. I have not performed a power button or plug pull reset to see if the problem goes away.
Anyone else having the same issue ?
I will do a reset soon, just checking to see if it's just my 612.

Mine is acting normally.
A reset should cure it. Do you leave your receiver in Stand-By overnight so it gets the nightly update?

Thanks Ken.
A reset has solved the problem.
I do leave my reciever in stand-by overnight for any updates.
Have a great Memorial Day all.

Nightly update wuill happen even without receiver in stand-by - it cannot be disabled- all you can do is adjust the time that it occurs.
