    My 722 just got 6.72 software today and I was wondering if anyone knows what might have changed from 6.71? A glance through the menus and I did not see any new change but I could have missed something or it could just be an enhancement/ bug fix.

    I did a search but could not find any posts on 6.72.

    Well, it did not fix the tuner 2 ratio problem when using single mode pic & pic. How freakin hard is it to fix something you broke 3 updates ago??

    They also have not fixed trick play yet again.

    I had a program paused, restarted play, hit back twice in succession and jumped back over 45 minutes in the program. :(

    They are not going to fix that on the satellite delivered channels. It's a matter of compressing the signal. OTA channels handle the trick plays just fine, which is why I record/watch OTA channels whenever possible, especially on sporting events.

    45 minutes is excessive. It shouldn't jump back too far more than a few I-frames in the MPEG4 stream. I can understand it not being exactly 30 seconds since DISH guesses where that will be based on the bitrate of the stream instead of having a precise 30.0 seconds from an index file ... but there is no excuse for 45 minutes.

    Indexing based on offset/time-stamp of each I-frame as I'm aware.

    I believe DISH dropped that method years ago when creating an index was considered a violation of Tivo's patent. They moved to a system where the location of the position in the stream to jump to is guessed, not indexed.

    Since this is the "ViP612/622/722/722K DVR Support Forum" my reply was based on the software for this series of receivers.

    It has been a while since I used my 501. The software was changed on those models enough that I noticed a similar inaccuracy in the number of seconds jumped. DISH claims that they removed the indexing. My 622 made a similar change in behavior - losing precise 30/10 second jumps - at about the same time that DISH updated the 501 software.

    And this question is wrt the 722 specifically. Makes one wonder what the 501 has to do with anything. :confused:

    Because file system is the same - DFS. Better if we will not come into useless arguing with you as usual ...

    If you were talking to me read the rest of the post you trimmed out of your quote. :)

    And I had no question nor quarrel with what I trimmed out. You listed a bunch of receivers that I did quote and I pointed out that this thread dealt with the 722 only.

    Sorry to have tried to contribute. :nono:

    You questioned what the 501 had to do with anything, not what the 612, 622 or 722k had to do with anything?
    Perhaps we should just chalk it up to confusion? :confused:

    Actually, my entire post was, "And this question is wrt the 722 specifically. Makes one wonder what the 501 has to do with anything. :rolleyes: "

    I don't know where or what the confusion was. In any event, I'm done with it.

    And again, I wish that I had never posted.

    I was discussing software running on the 722. Sorry for the confusion.

    one of my 722's is L672 and tuner 2 ratio works normal, the other says X672 and tuner 2 is stuck in stretch.

    Those X672 are commercial receivers.
