I tried that. It said, "Download interrupted, please wait".
Power button flashing usually means a software download. You can check by going to Menu - 6 - 7 and seeing download progress.

Power button flashing usually means a software download. You can check by going to Menu - 6 - 7 and seeing download progress. If there is a download going on tonight, it may take twice as long as a normal download - up to 2 hours, so be aware of that.
Come on Mark you be the man , Tell us !!!
Ummm???? he thinks clutching at the "finally the new software download will mean the release of 100's of 921s" straw.......

I received a phone call from the 921 team at Dinner and was told that L1.45 was just signed off on and would be uplinked tonight.
Of course my 921 is dead so I can't see whats going on.

It is at the medalion stage now.
Fingers are crossed!!

I've had L145 for a few days, and haven't run into anything major (like the OTA bug, or the bug that was the reason you didn't see L144).

The only plus that I have noticed with 145 is the unit has not locked up on me.
This sounds like it would be a major improvement but it really isn't since I can not lock in any digital OTA stations. My signal strength meter now does not work and any digital channel picked up with the scan is unwatchable because of breakups. At least the last version provided a solid signal when it picked it up.
Blue lines are still present.
Stretch mode still over stretches.
Mark - What improvements were made that I can look for?

If you have the blue lines problem, send Dish an email to the address in the thread posted at the top of this forum - they will respond to you about getting your 921 swapped out for a new one.
Stretch is definitely still a bug, as is zoom (although not as bad).
