I had alot of trouble today. Possibly weather related; but my "switch" was out and one of the sat's wasn't being received. I like this equipment better than my DTV, but I do think the software has a number of glitches in it; and I hope patches are forthcoming.


Did you try running a check switch? I've seen my connections go flakey a few times over the last year and I can recover it by running a check switch.

Yes I'm sure their hard at work on the software for the 942 with their top people considering it's now antiquated equipment. This is one of my biggest concerns about the 942, hardware is only as good as the software that runs it.

Rob, love that Firefox logo.

Thanks, though I can't take credit for creating it. I found it somewhere, can't remember where now though.

Check switch succeeded this morning with a clear sky. It failed three times last night on 110, during a rainstorm...

I disagree bunkers,

Look at the absence of posting in this 942 forum lately....its because the 942 is working very well for the majority of us. the last software update for the 942 was over two weeks ago, hardly a software problem if it shows up this long after an update.

It is likely a temporary guide glitch that should be taken care of shortly. Actually it sounds like you need a reboot. I would pull your power cord for a few seconds and then plug it back in. I bet that will solve your issue.

Believe it or not, dish actually cares about us users and does not appreciate statements like yours.

I'm glad it's working well for most. Apparently, I am in the minority. I've got missing OTA guide info for one of my channels and have complained about it for months without any resolution... :(
