    Since the latest Dish software upgrade my 921 has locked up each day. I have to reset the box. Anyone else have this problem?

    Yeah, I had this problem last night also.

    I also had a problem where my 921 couldn't see any of my local digital channels. I had to readd each one to get them back.

    This has happened two or three times since L215. Sometime overnight the unit locks up, and in the morning neither the power button on the remote or the front panel will turn the 921 on. A power button re-boot is required.

    My guess is that it is locking up during the overnight auto re-boot or during overnight EPG update.

    This has happened to me too. The last time I had to do a power cord reboot, as neither the remote or the front panel power button responded. This happens the first time I tried to watch TV for the day, so I suspect something happened during the overnight reboot that locked-up the unit.

    Today, when I got up, the front panel and remote Power Buttons would not work. I turned the TV on and Attention 680 was up, "Receiver is in standby-- Rebooting". After 45 minutes, I called Tech Service. They had me do a Power Button Re-boot. It came back.
