Did I miss something in the forums? I have L727 listed as the software version now (was L726).

I notice some weird things occurring in the last few days/week: switching channels suddenly between the tuners, volume starting out at 85% after having been off for awhile (still on standby of course).

So I checked the software version and found it at L727. Did the unplug thing and we will see what happens now.
VIP 722 DVR, Samsung LNT4671F HD TV, ROKU for Netflix, Panasonic Blu-Ray, Slingbox, and a HTC Rezound to watch all this stuff when my wife is shopping.

Got it the other morning. 722 seems a bit "snappier", but still have Timer issues and macro-blocking as before.

I just received it this morning. I still don't know what has changed or what is new. I did receive L726 about a week ago. That was a QUICK software change.

Since getting this I have had increased blackouts while watching programs that were recorded, not sure if it's doing it live; the beginning of programs start out black and sometimes it lasts for some time before the program makes an "appearance"; macro-blocking a lot more often now; when I pause or unpause there is a pop over the optical connection, that when I have it turned up "functionally" loud is a real jolt. I just got some timers working as they should, spending more time messing with timers than I do watching what they are set to record. I'd be very interested in seeing what this update is suppose to do. Cuz it's doing other things too.
