Got S330 on my HwS's at 4:18pm of the 19th. I haven't seen any talk or topics about it. Unless I'm blind?

I have it too, but am still trying to find any bug fixes for issues I have reported.

I was just thinking this last night right before I got my massive SatGuys Daily Digest.

OK. Now for S335 . . .

 

Couple of things I have noticed is that overall response of the machine is slower. All programming on my EHD prior to S335 is titled correctly, but the episode name on ALL previous recordings is "Bentley Continental GT Speed", a program that I saved a long time ago. But why this one title? Also this morning, starting at about 1:23am, the nightly reboot which I allowed. Then it came up again at 2:38am, and 3:23am, and 4:38am. I finally went to bed before I could see the next occurrence. Am still getting the audio popping through HDMI when skipping, changing screens to anything that has the video up in the upper corner, coming out of deleting a finished program. Monday had to call TS, the kid was great, and he had to send a hit to the box to get it to recover from a snow outage. That is the first I have had in years, since I now have a single Black 1000.2, was told that the black dishes have a "teflon" coating, not by the amount of snow that piled up on it. Still had to go out with the Super Soaker. I had two 500's, but the DPP44 switch kept burning out the Duo Nodes. So it finally completed the update and populated all the channels. This was on one of two HwS only.

 

Other than that, it's been pretty boring.

 

UPDATE: 03/05/14

 

About the dishes being covered with Teflon. They are not. Today was in the 60's and tonight we had 3" of snow that only stuck in the grass. The street and sidewalks were clear and water was running in gutters. So the snow was melting. Matter of fact the weather is/was really nice. WOW! Talk about a snow magnet. The whole surface of the new Black 1000.2 was perfectly covered with 1-2 inches of snow. It looked like it was padded and my old sun beat 129 wing dish was barely covered. You could still see the faded logo on it in the dark. It took 3 SuperSoakers, never used more than 1 with the older dishes when rarely necessary. That's why I tried to stay with a two dish system for as long as I could. They made me change when the DPP44 switch kept burning out nodes. Never had snow issues with the dual dishes. But this WOW!, again. I have never seen snow pile up like that on a dish even when we had 12+ inches at one time. All my neighbors that have DTV, their dishes had very little on them. Instead of "snow repelling", this one is snow "attracting". AND "3" SuperSoakers, NEVER in 18 years. Not even after storms that left 3-4' on the ground.

 

In a thread someone asked about "Dish Skins". It was suggested that they use a trash bag. I use to. It worked perfectly, but that was with a 500 that had a "peak" to it. These 1k dishes are flatter on the tops and creates a plain that can aid in collecting snow right down the middle. I had to go up and take the one on our first 1k2 off in s storm because it was grabbing more than shedding. After that DISH switched me back to the two dishes.

 

SolidSignal has a spray for mobile dishes. Has anyone used it to any good?
