Update and favorite list problem?

In other words... IF they have fixed the bug, your current list might still be "broken" and you'd need to start over.
I could be wrong, though... but that is what I've seen that seems to have fixed a few people.

I would be fine with re doing it if it will stay.
Creating a second favorites list (in addition to the first) fixed that problem for me. I don't know if the channels still disappear from the first list, but not a single one has vanished from my second list since I created it a few weeks ago.

I tried that. It worked for a day and then same thing. It seems it wont keep 1 channel (as far as I can tell) Channel 50. I have to add it back every 1/2 hour and I can't add it by itself. I have to add 2 channels then go back and delete the 2nd. If I add just 50, it ignores it.
My sister is experiencing this as well. She created list 1 then I told her to use List 2 instead because of the problem but she is telling me that list 2 is dropping channels as well.
I'm assuming that if you do the 2 channel add at once it still drops your channel later, is this correct?

I have been trying for 15 minutes to add one #$#$ channel and I can't get it added to my favorites list. I attempt to make 2 or 3 changes at once yet it won't add the channel that originally disappeared.
Dish adds some "What's Hot" feature that is worthless yet they can't confirm and fix a broken feature that many people use.

Mine has been fine. You wont lose recordings or timers. Resore to factory settings, reboot, then redo your fav lists. After this backup to your remote. All is fine.
I followed your suggestion and so far so good. I guess time will tell!

You are not a beta tester because 230 is not the currect software version.
I realize I'm not a beta tester I was trying to be a smart A stating that the hopper was released way too soon with way too many problems and we have all havr become beta testers

Don't speak for me. I had precisely one problem with the 2H/3J setup I have. For the most part, the software has worked virtually flawlessly. Not a single recording has been missed - which is usually the hallmark of bad DVR programming. It works with my network, my EHD works fine... Like I said - *almost* flawless.
I misspoke when I said we are beta testers what I should have said is thousands of us who have the hopper are having problems such as external hard drives causing problems since this new update are favorites not saving correctly and many other things that the 722 K work perfectly but not the hopper

I got the 234 update a few days ago and it MAY have fixed the dropped channels problem. I keep all 4 lists populated, 1 for favs, 1 for movies, 1 for music and a short favs list. 3 of them have < 50 channels and have always been stable. The other one has ~ 160 channels and has always dropped channels - mostly locals, but recently numbers in the low 100s like USA and Comedy. After getting 234 I added 2 (still have to do this) channels and the list has been stable for 3 days. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Does anyone know if the Hopper update 230 fixes the favorite list forgetting channels problem? I've about had it with putting channels back everytime I look at the guide.
I found the Favorites list only allows a certain number of entries (I didn't count them). It allows you to "add and save" the next entry but it won't stick when you go to your list. I just removed a less desirable entry and added one I wanted more and it was fine.
A slight modification to the software needs to be made by Dish programmers to either warn or preferably block excessive entries.
