Dishplayer 5721 upgrade spooling now

I notice if I am on the DISH HOME screen (or listings or other full screen graphics generated by the Dishplayer) that the image is shifted over to the left about an inch (on my 27 in Bedroom TV)
However when I watch video it fills the screen fully.
It this happening to anyone else?

I did not check my second unit.

I, for one, am glad it's fixed. Having the hard drive running for no reason bugged the heck out of me.

Both of my DP's this morning were properly turned off after the 7-day download. Thanks Dish!

Do you have to turn the Dishplayer off to receive the upgrade? Usually mine is left on, but for the last couple of nights, I've turned it off overnight. Still no upgrade.

I haven't had a timed recording on that DP since before Christmas, so I know it didn't turn on by itself. I don't remember whether I turned it on this morning by the remote or by the front panel. I suspect I used the front panel.
I'll try again tonight and I'll keep track of how I turn it off and on. Do you recommend front panel or remote? Does/should it make a difference?

Scott, everthing looks normal on my 32" after the upgrade.
Mine did the same thing.

It's been a long time since I've used the DP to record anything. Last fall, I got one of the free 501's they were handing out for the Club Dish deal. I used it to replace my 4700, which had had a standalone TiVo attached. I hooked the TiVo up to the DP and have used it to record. It's amazing how non-problematic the DP is when you don't use it to record anything. The only problem I've had is if TiVo tries to record a suggestion during the nightly EPG download.
