Both of my 921's came back to 9 days some time today. This surprises me as they were both at 2 days or less this morning. Hopefully something was fixed but will have to see.

As of this morning, 9 day guide is back. Last night it was just two. But this has repeated several times.

This is sort of like being in an episode of LOST!:lol:

I had a new one for me with the guide last night. I had the 2 day guide, but after the first hour, every other channel listing line said "No Information Available". :confused: That lasted about 3 hours and I was back to the 2 day guide. Did not have time to check this morning.

When is Dish going to fix this??? There's no excuse for techs still telling customers to do a smartcard reboot to try to fix it.

Our 9 Day is back, 2nd day in a row. WOW! (I know, I'm setting the bar a tad low these days)

Did anyone have problems with CBS HD/East last night? We had all sorts of break-up, freezes and LOS for a couple of hours.

Is this opinion or have you heard something official? Inquiring minds want to know. :)

Very good. Just hope the fix isn't "upgrade your 921 to a 622". :D

I had the 9 day guide for a full 14 hours yesterday! How's that for setting the bar low? :nono: It was gone this morning of course.

I'm not holding my breath for a fix. Besides, once this problem is fixed something else will probably go wrong with the 921. I have accepted the fact that the 921 is the worst electronics equipment buy that I have made in 35 years.

With the long lead time for the 622, those who wait until April 1 probably won't get a 622 until May. Also, with the dropout problems on sat 129, the Voom channels are not available for us up here in Alaska. There's no telling when or even if 129 will ever work for me.

I stopped by the Direct TV installer yesterday after work, but they had already closed. I'll be out this afternoon, so I am going to see what they have to offer and also check the prices at the cable company. The cable company has a dual tuner HD box now.
