For some reason I woke up at 2:45 am and came on here to play a bit. At 3am the Dishplayer came on, I fell asleep around 3:30 and it was on when I woke up at 6am this morning.

Could this be the clue why the Dishplayer has so many bugs... because they test the fixes on a Panasonic VCR? Nah that cant be it.

Hi - I am a dish subscriber with a DP 7100 - every night I turn the DP off - every morning (since the 5720 upgrade) the DP is on. Is this a bug? Am doing something wrong?

It's got one. I used it all the time before the PVR software was released. After you set it up in the setup menu, when you set a timer (not using the record button, but by selecting the program then selecting the record button or creating a manual timer) you get a choice to either record to Personal TV or record to VCR.

I used it once a long time ago!
Thanks for knocking some sense into me!

I agree with that !!!! My 7100 and 7200 work just fine now , thank you. Here's a little note to any E* employee that may be lurking here.
Please do not construct, configure or conspire to develop any new upgrades to the Dishplayer. After four years of "now it works then now it doesn't" roulette, my DP's have been the most stable and reliable in the last two weeks that at any previous time I can remember. I will pay the supreme sacrifice of waking up every morning to a little green light being lit on the unit if you promise to LEAVE THE DP ALONE. I would respecfully suggest that if your technical support employees feel the need to meddle, to turn your attention and efforts to the 501. Let those owners share in the pain ! We DP owners have suffered long enough.
Again to reiterate, "PLEASE DON'T FIX THE AUTO TURN OFF BUG".
I like the green light, I really do !!
