I have a 622 and a 722 which have both been running fine for several months. On 8 Oct I started having recording problems with the 722. It would show correct time recorded, but when you start the program it jumps directly to "done".
Also, in this failure mode it would not record live TV (could not backspace live TV).
Running 6.14 software. Reboot seemed to fix it. Failed again next day.
So, I assumed a failing 722 and moved all my recordings to the 622 (also on 6.14 software) in the next room. Tonight, started to watch a program recorded last night and the 622 did exactly the same thing. Not actually recording, no live TV being recorded, jump directly to "done" when you start one of the recent recordings. Older programs play fine.
Since this problem is on two systems, it looks like a strange bug in the software rather than a dual hardware failure. Guess I will phone Dish and devote an hour to see if the CSR's have an idea about this.
Anyone having anything like this?
