Today the 722k is frozen in the Dish logo "Starting up..." screen. Resets with the button and the CSR "proper troubleshooting steps" of unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds twice did not prove effective. They're sending me a new receiver.
722 is on L725 firmware.
not sure about the 722k as it appears dead now.

As for me ... No "new" issues to report. My 722k downloaded L7.52 last week. The first thing I did that same morning was a power-down reboot - this follows the advice given on DBSTalk some months ago.
And, what was working with L7.50 then, is till working with L7.52 now.
What wasn't working, is still not working. For example,
1. The loss of aspect ratio when you come out of the interactive weather report still requires a graceful (come out of it using the Exit command button) termination.
2. And the Skip function arbitrarilly causes poor audio until you press the Pause button twice.
There are other "legacy" issues still unresolved but so far, I haven't seen any "new" problems arise due to L7.52.

This issue (lockouts of guide, etc) has been going on and off again since L7.50 on the 722k, and sill exists on L7.52 (but not as frequently in recent days).
If the problem is now on the 722 (not k), then DISH may have migrated some bad code to that model.
When posting, try to be specific on your DVR model.

Here's how it happened:
Watched a recorded show, then deleted it.
Went back to watching live TV. Went to PIP position button - have it in side by side mode. Swap button to swap channels - here's where it locked up. No buttons on remote would work. Had to reboot . Then it worked OK.
