    I thought the trick to prevent the 4K box from becoming unchecked was to leave the C61K on all the time?

    They changed a few minor parts like filters and inductors. Nothing that affected its operation.

    I’m using one of the original C61K’s that has the old DirecTV logo on it, and I haven’t had to recheck the 4K setting for a while now (maybe 6 months or so?). I have an extra C61K that has the ATT logo on it, but it’s on the shelf deactivated for a later date.

    The bug that I see now is with Audio/Dolby Audio setting. There are three options, and if I check the top selection with Dolby Atmos, it doesn’t stick. Only the second and third option stick. I noticed this last Sunday for the US Open. My 4K broadcast was only coming in at 2.0 audio, where the national FOX feed on my local channel came in at DD5.1.

    I also get a quick glitch/freeze and every 10 min or so, or if I speed back up to live programming from the buffer. I then hit instant replay once and that seems to help the glitch issue go away. At least, temporarily.

    Whatever. I'm just glad I don't have the problem anymore.

    I have a HR54 and c61k for 8 months. The first three or four months it kept happening and then it suddenly stopped and I have no idea why.
