Did you lose your OTAs with L4.01

I have two 622s.
I have 119,110,148 and 129 going through a DPP44 switch.
Dish 1000 and a dish 500
No OTA loss on either box.

I lost OTA Friday evening, but a front-panel restart brought them back and I have not lost them again since.
I have a Dish1000+ installation.
No noticable improvement in OTA signal, as I was pretty much already getting 100s Except my local PBS which I get about 73 usually. In order to get better PBS I'd have to sacrifice and point my antenna differently. Unless and until I get a better antenna situation (no real motivation to do so) I am fine with the 73 on PBS because it locks solidly at that level.

I also lost OTA Saturday Morning shortly after re-scanning locals. I was able to get them back only after a hard (power cord) reboot.
No problems since. In fact my signal strength has dramatically increased. I am able to pick up all but one of the local Detroit stations (good stable signal). Also, my Flint locals which used to range from 70-90 have increase from 80-100.

I lost my OTA on Friday night. A soft reboot brought them back and I have not lost them since.
OTA signal has improved with 4.01. The big four networks are all in the 90's with a couple right at 99-100.

Hmmm. So far we have one person who has lost their OTA and has not been able to restore them... Don't see a post of that person.. Would be great if you can't get them back that you can indicate your DMA and all the info you can so we can try and see if there is any correlation.
I think sbturner is one who has never regained OTA's.

As I reported I lost all my OTA once Sunday evening, but got it back with a reboot. Already had two round of emails with bug support describing. Its great to actually know someone is investigating.
My second just received L401, so twice as much change to be hit with any new bugs.

DMAs: Nashville, TN 65 miles
Huntsville, AL 50 miles
No change in OTAs for either DMA - all are still fine.
All SAT channels were black (no picture or sound) following L4.01 download. A power switch reboot corrected the problem.
