If you press Themes, which brings up the Themes and Search window, is the last search you performed listed in the Search Criteria forcing you to select Clear Entry before making another search?

Same thing happened to me. Recreated them (7 total). Shouldn't of had to in the first place.

Does E* even "test & debug" a new release on a test server BEFORE implementing it to the civilized world? I'd be looking for a new job if a new software release I installed wiped out historical/archived information on a Live system. :(


Why they need to spend money for QA ? You and all customers will do that for free !

All other subscribers does QA tests for privilege to pay for it to the providers. I.e. for free for those.

I think this is the best you can hope for, epokopac. I'm sure they have some in-house QA procedures they run, but my guess is that they are minimal and only check for errors causing catastrophic failures. It's not the first time that they've released an update only to replace it a few days later.

In their defense, I imagine that the software we get must be monstrously complicated. The cause and effect are multiplied by the many receiver models they must have in the field, what features have been activated, and the sheer amount of time and in-house software it would take to cover all features and conditions.

If you stop and think about it, Dish would probably release fewer software updates if it didn't rely on us to give them feedback. I think that replacing a few search histories is a small price to pay for the software updates.

Don't forget that these machines are just computers whose expanding features and capabilities have yet to be exhausted.

Of course that doesn't address the fact that the Search feature is now messed up given the fact that Clear Entry must be selected prior to performing a new search. Is it too much to ask that the functions that WERE WORKING prior to the update STILL WORK?
If Dish wants happy users, don't force the user to recreate things because of an update. I see no reason the search history should have been deleted.

I don't use the search feature that often, so this change doesn't bother me. It's a good thing that Dish has its representatives on DBSTalk.com.
You should be able to express your displeasure to them.

Got 6.35 last night. Seems to have solved the long-standing HDMI audio dropout problems so far.

That's where DBSTalk can help. The "TV Shows" tab up top will take you to the calendar of season premieres where you can request an e-mail reminder be sent up to 3 days in advance. Also watch the TV Show Reminders thread for new additions.


Thanks, BobaBird, I didn't even know about that option! Always learning at DBSTalk!:)

I have two 622s - One is connected via HDMI the other via Component/R-L Audio. Both have the audio dropout problem. Both have now updated to L6.35 - both still have the dropout issue. Just thought I'd mention it...

Well, as it turns out, you're right after all. However my dropouts occur only with the HDMI audio output, and with the 622 set for PCM AND Dolby. Optical is fine. As a matter of fact, when it gets really bad, I mute the TV (HDMI) and use the stereo/surround system. Switching the 622 to PCM results in no dropouts, but then there is no surround sound, either. "Audio Leveling" has no effect, just locks it in RF mode. Usually I can restore full HDMI audio by pausing and resuming (or some other action), sometimes not. Sometimes resuming from an unrelated pause results in no HDMI audio, or intermittent audio..
