While the latest 180 software fixed the stretch mode with SD channels (when output as 1080i), I just noticed that the stretch mode for HD channels doesn't stretch enough, leaving thin side bars. I guess I haven't watched any 4:3 material on an HD channel since 180, but I just did and found that once again, when Dish fixes one thing, they break another. This is just ridiculous. How in the world will Dish ever get the 921 into any reasonable shape when their quality control is sooooooooo.... poor that when they try to fix one thing they can't ensure that they don't break something else. Prior to the 180 software, the HD stretch worked perfectly, but no longer. How many software cycles will it take to fix this one and how many other items will break as a result! I've been patient with the 921 since I got it at the beginning of January. But my patience is wearing very thin by this time. I know about the HD Tivo problems, but I don't care. If Dish doesn't get the HD stretch fixed by the next software update and if I still can't add the two OTA channels in Los Angeles that so far can't be added to the 921, and if I can't use the DVR features for KCET, our PBS station by the next software update, it's all over. My 921 will be available for sale and I'll switch to DirecTV and get the HD Tivo. I suspect DirecTV will add more HD channels long before Dish does, and I'll also bet that the HD Tivo will have it's major problems fixed long before the 921 becomes a stable device. I really think Dish should abandon the 921 and buy back all 921s that have been sold. Dish is incapable of writing software for a DVR and I fear the next software update will prove that. I'd love for Dish to prove me wrong, but I doubt they will.
