Anyone else noticing that their Dish receiver's system time of day is running slow? My 522 is running a minute and half behind. I've compared it against my PC's Internet Time which I keep regularly synchronized with an Internet time server. Is there any way to correct this?

I thought they kept updated with the atomic clock and that all the recievers have the same time.

Yeah, I did notice I wasn't getting quite as much of the preceeding show as in weeks past. I figured it was a station quirk, but I guess it could be the 522...

Mine is now running a full two minutes behind. I think I am going to send an e-mail to Dish Tech Support.
