    I see ratings of "NR", not "NR/AO" on my local channels under both L224 and a newer beta. Is that what you're seeing, what ratings do you see for the same programming on your Dish local channels?

    Mark, what I'm seeing for my Digital Locals is "NR/AO".

    I've attached a few pictures to illustrate: The first is my EPG showing my Digital OTA stations. As you can see, it shows up as "NR/AO". The second picture shows the Info pop-up for 016-01 (which, interestingly enough, has an open lock!)

    The third picture shows my Rating Lock settings. 4th picture shows that the lock channels are not locked. The fifth photo is TNT-HD, which shows as "NR", but isn't locked. If I try to tune in 016-01, I get the lock challenge as seen in the last picture.
    As I mentioned, I don't subscribe to my Locals.

    Thanks for the pictures, Roland. Submitted as a bug report through beta channels.

    I'm unable to change the channel on my 942 (see my post #177) if I select the guide button on the remote, I'm able to display my favorite list. I then push the select botton and the receiver displays the last station and not the hi-lighted station in my favorite list. to change the channel, I need to scroll down or up to another station not highlighted in my favorite list. my 921 and 510 receivers work opposite of the 942

    I just got my 942 tonight and all hooked up.

    I'm sure hoping they get thie Dolby Digital issue fixed soon. I got into a state tonight where I had to turn off the receiver to get Dolby Digital to come back on the Voom channels (or any other channel).

    Also, maybe I'm not understanding how the Recall button works. Tonight I was recording the Pacers game from TNTHD and O'Reilly from FoxNews. Both tuners were humming away. I pressed recall and it went from the Pacer to O'Reilly. I pressed recall and all it would do is bring up the information band that comes up with you press View TV. I would manually switch back to the Pacers game from Fox and recall would take me back to Fox but then again it would not take me back to TNTHD.

    Am I missing something?

    If you were recording both, use the Swap button to switch between them.

    That'll work, but so should the recall button right?

    The recall button won't work if you're recording, because it switches channels on a single tuner, as opposed to the Swap, which switches tuners. If you weren't recording, the Recall button should work, if you specifically tune to both channels on the same tuner. You indicated in your post that one program was on one tuner, and the other was on the other tuner.

    Hmmm, guess I got too used to my dual tuner DirecTV UltimateTV DVR. When you pressed Recall on it, it was smart enough to switch tuners if you were recording on both tuners at the same time.

    I'll have to get used to the quirks and differences.

    Does the PIP window have to be activated for SWAP to switch tuners?

    Thanks

    No, Swap works whether you have PIP enabled or not. But, just keep in mind the DD bug that isn't fixed yet with Swap.

    Is the DD issue supposed to be fixed in L225?

    No, I don't believe so.

    My local CBS does not have guide data. I went to record RAYMOND finale and was setting up the manual timer setup time start and finish and then when I put it on DATE selection it locked up. I could still see and here the channel I was on in the window but remote would not function and nothing let me escape except holding down the power button. I think the error is it does not know how to record without guide data?

    Had trouble the last two days when I deleted a DISH Pass. It deleted the pass; however never updated the schedule. The shows continued to record. The pass was #1 in my priority list. When I went to my list and looked - the pass was gone; however the first pass listed was priority #2 (#1 was missing). I ended up holding down the power button on the front of the unit today and it appears to have fixed the problem.

    EDIT - Okay, I spoke too soon. When I re-added my pass now the only thing that my dvr is scheduled to record is this one show. I have roughly 22 other timers and none of them seem to be finding anything. Any ideas?

    EDIT EDIT - Fixed the problem by manually deleting and recreating my timers list... WHAT A PAIN IN THE #&$!! But at least it appears that it knows about my shows now. I do like this receiver; however I do have to admit that it seems to have way too many bugs.

    EDIT EDIT EDIT - :) Also ran into that, while readding my timers, a hard disk diagnostic popped up and ran. After the reboot I was missing most of what was recorded in the last 12 hours.

    EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT - Many of my recent recordings come up with an error code 07 when I attempt to play them. I have gone through and deleted all of these; however it makes me wonder if I am having some sort of harddrive or database corruption issue?

    In addition to the bug tracking list, what do you think about a 942 Feature Wish List thread?

    I'd vote for it - I have a whole list of small stuff that I would love to suggest. :)

    Me too... I had a DirecTV UltimateTV dual tuner DVR for almost 3 years and there were a lot of little things that it did that were nice.

    Examples

    If you were tuned to a channel at the beginning of a show and then decided to record halfway through, it would record the show from the beginning.

    When you setup a series to record, you could decide how many episodes to keep. It would then automatically delete the older one as it recorded a newer one.

    I'll save the rest for the list ;)

    For past three days all recordings have had pixilation when fast forwarding X4. x15 and faster is ok. I use x4 when watching recording of nascar races so i can follow positions and keep up with the race. checked other recordings and all have pixilation on x4.

    A coupla times a day screen pop-up will say "guide data Outdated' then drops down to download. I let it download, then all guide information is returned.The guide for the first hour or two, both local and satellite, will say "digital service".Extended past that will show guide information. This happens even though download is "enabled" for 3am.

    Mike D,
    My 942 will be installed 5/28. This is a new installation. I have no phone line where the 942 will be installed. You mentioned a wireless phone jack for your SBC DSL line. I also have SBC DSL. Is the wireless jack available retail, or do I have to call SBC? Thanks for your help.
    Joe
