    And since L2.06 did not totally fix the audio sync issues (at least with mine) maybe this release won't fix those problems and fix the audio sync for me the last one was suppose to.

    I was still having audio sync (but not as bad) problems with 2.06. For example I fast forward through a 30 min show and then rewind a couple of mins and press play, audio was out of sync. Today I turn on the 522, hit menu and noticed the "customer service" link in the menu was now active so I checked and wow, I had 2.07. Didn't know it was coming. Haven't had time to try it since I had to head in to work but I did a quick "FF/RW" test like above and it kept audio sync the whole time. Don't know if they changed anything or I was just lucky this time. I'll play with it a lot more tonight. I really hope that and the audio drop outs and beeps that show up now and then are fixed.

    I received L2.07 last night. Sure hope I'm not jinxing myself by saying this but so far so good. I transferred two movies to tape from TV2 without the audio losing sync, one of them while TV2 was recording. This was the first time I've been able to get through this much continuous playback without sync issues.

    None of those (4) fixes mention the audio/video sync issue, do they ?? You can be sure that *if* they ever get it fixed, they'll make it known !

    The "Video Freeze" covers the audio out of sync

    Great... but...

    Had audio dropout every 4 to 5 seconds for about 1/2 second. Cycled power - no fix. Pulled plug for 1 minute.

    After unit came back up I tried to watch a recorded show - video but no audio. Every recorded show had video but no audio. Switched to live Channel 4 - audio but no video. Switched to recorded show - video but no audio. Switched to live Channel 2 - audio but no video. Switched to another recorded show - video but no audio. Pulled the plug again.

    It's worked since but confidence is NOT high!

    Can I have 2.05 back? PLEASE? No problems there as long as I didn't press "guide" during the last 15 minutes of a 1 hour show except for audio sync which has not yet been fixed (happened again tonight)

    I've transferred about 10 hours of movies to tape with L2.07 and the interesting thing is I haven't had the audio sync problem with TV2. However, the sync problem has occurred while watching on TV1. There has been a few brief instances of stuttering(more like skipped frames of a movie) but it seems to only occur while something else is recording on that particular TV.

    2.06 seemed to have less audio out of sync issues than 2.05 and 2.07 do. I'm getting out of sync all the time now w/ 2.07.

    I totally disagree, however, it is possible that the components vary enough from lot to lot that they can't optimize the software for all versions of the 522 and therefore, that explains why with each new version of the software you always have people complain of new errors while others state that their bugs have been fixed. Maybe for example, some 522s have two HDs while others have one. Maybe some have hardware striping of two HDs while others have software based striping. Maybe some have faster CPUs than others, or faster RAM.

    that applies to all the E boxes as far back as the 4000 where some suffered blinkouts caused by the specifuic chipset used.

    Years ago they should have picked a single basic platform with standaridzed parts and functions.
