Just received 222k version L5.96 last night at 2:30am, don't notice anything new but some text changes, still no guide fix to stay set on all channels guide, still no external HD dvr capability.

Also noticed smartcard went up to H09 from H08.

The 222k does not have DVR capability so you can't connect an EHD to this receiver. EHD only works with 211/211k/411, 612, 622, 722/722k, 922, and Hoppers. Thanks.

Just to remind you, if you did miss a word from Ergen's mouth - a couple years ago FW of 222 with a support of EHD was in process.

Ahhhh.

I don't think that'l ever be fixed.

Have you noticed any pixellation besides top of the hour?

I do, sporadically. After three receivers, [ and everything checked, somethings replaced] I'm convinced It's not on my end.

What's interesting is your location and mine. Extreme opposite....

No, but directv has lots of random audio dropouts, just not at predictable times like the dish pixelation problems every 30 minutes.

Have you noticed lately any random [ unexplained] pixellation besides the " every half hour issue?
