I got 4.06 the other day. Since then, I've noticed an increase in audio/video sync issues with HD movies. I recorded Talledega Nights and the first third of the movie was out of sync, the second third was fine and the last third was out of sync again.

This movie was out of sync for a large portion of the broadcast on the night it premiered on Starz HD. I don't know if the problem was specific to the 622, but it's certainly not specific to 4.06, since I believe the movie premier took place before this software update rolled out.

Release notes for L4.06 have been posted and can be found here

Thanks


I've watched 4.06 for 4 days and am convinced the SD picture quality has been improved. At least for me, on my 622 and my RCA 52" via HDMI/DVI. The SD pictures seem to have more resolution and clarity. My standard view for SD channels is in streached mode so this seems like a hugh improvement to me. Anyone else notice this?

HD quality seems the same as L405 to me, on SD improvements.

Still no folders. :( Which in my opinion would make this the PERFECT HD sat receiver. Maybe the next round of updates before the fall TV season begins. :)

Definitely provide CC feedback Eagles. We need to keep on it for the people that use it. Hopefully you will see some level of CC improvement for L4.06.


I've been reporting CC issues to Tech Support for over three months and finally threatened to move to D* and tell Charlie why. My biggest gripe was DISC HD and TNT did not have CCing. Yesterday, DISC HD started CC and I was -still- at 4.05. Today I am at 4.09 and TNT HD has CCing. Make of this what you will.<g>

I'm pretty sure they know how bad the CC situation is over at D*.
