My 921 rebooted itself twice today and than locked up solid after the second time. I called advanced support and they logged the issue (possibly they were sending one of thier daily updates?) any way he told me 1.44 (not 1.43) would be released in a few days.

sgt940, if you can reproduce the steps that you went through before your 921 rebooted, please post them as a bug report in the 921 forum so the developers will see it.

Yes L1.45 has been released. Do a search for L1.45 and you'll find a number of threads about it already.

I would guess version 1.45 is solving a lot of problems. Does this foreshadow a mass release of 921s in the VERY near future?

Scott G reported that you have to reboot after download to get the OTA upgrade to work properly

So I asked back on page #1 of this thread if there was anything worth watching in HD. I stand by my belief that the HD package is completely overpriced at $9.99 for 4 channels. The price should be lowered to $4.99, or more channels should be added without a price increase.

ESPNHD is a joke; most of the time it runs SD programming horribly stretched to 16:9 as its "HD content". Considering how infrequently actual HD content is shown on the channel, and how poor the channel looks with the stretch applied, this channel really ought to be free if you already are getting ESPN.

The other channels? I would accept a few commercials here and there, particularly between programs, if we could get the price down a little. Right now one pays a premium in the hope that someday there will be additional HD content; there may be at some point, but sadly one may have to pay even more to get it. Shouldn't these be part of the Top 150 or America's Everything Package, besides?

... In any case, back to the topic at hand. Now that L145 is out, any thoughts on what Dish is planning for the next set of software fixes and next target date for a software release? There are certainly plenty more bugs to be squashed!
