    iOS Apps now work, timers, schedule, rentals still no go on Dishonline, which in my view is very poor anyway, besides the pretty interface.
    It seems like they prioritized the online viewing, more than controlling your DVR remotely. I am still able to access dish.sling.com which mirrors the iOS App and works well.

    Got the 2.12 hopper update and now my timers are all screwed up. I noticed a Half hour show Lawman that I record each day was recording for 5 hours. Got it to stop and tried deleting it only to have it delete the other 9 lawmans I had recorded. Further checking shows all my timers for the next 8 days except for prime all show no info avail. even though my guide works plus the timers that are listed after the weeks schedule all are right. Every timer that says no info available all have at least double and some many hours to record even though 99% of them are for an hour. Any ideas on fixing this?

    Cold reboot could help.

    My technical observation: the h2k's CPU [BCM7420] is producing so much heat ! The small heat-sink is not adequate for the job, need to create constant airflow, but the small fan is not rotating !!!
    They make worst design what I've seen starting from 622 ... :( It's amuse to me how they don't learning from own mistakes for many years. :(
    It would major reason for malfunctioning software (reboots, hangups, not run timers, etc) of h2k.

    Measured - the temperature is 60C/140F with custom made heat-sink (4x bigger) with open cover during transition from idle to 2x HD programs..

    Because of nightly reboot.
    Same solution what I offered to you, but delayed to midnight (1am ?).

    too hot, I can't hold my finger on the heat-sink. :eek2:

    Measuring temps ... for now , just by the FW, what is reporting a drive's temperature, not a CPU's.

    Get some Unicode wrong symbol - degree. Look as Chinese web site with incorrect chars encoding.

    Can't find the original post ...

    To keep history of added features: the S2.12 does support connection between h2k and Js over Ethernet instead of coax.

    A tip from an installer: before switch to Ethernet cabling, be sure you did finish download S212 and S264 to all your devices.

    After installing on top of new CPU's heatsink a small 1" 12VDC fun connected to +5V (it's running very silently) - a temp of CPU dropped to 35C/96F.

    PTA method is revealed: h2k writing four separate transport streams into four files (inside of folder PTAT) as four hour segments (5-6-7 GB size) and has special files describing its segmentation [program] to show these in PTA list; when you store some programs, the DVR make a copy selected program(s) to user folder (AV_REQ_HD).
    So, no - it's not whole mux [tp] recorded. Just four separate streams ie programs.

    Joey crashed last night. Not exactly sure what I was doing, I think browsing with right arrow button. Froze on one channel (playing that channel fine), just lost all control (no guide, no channel changing, no off/on), no effect using buttons on the Joey itself. I left it on all night thinking it would be resolved this AM, not. Unplugged/reboot, works fine now.

    Get a fan or notebook cooler, put it upside down on the cooling mat. See if it will help.

    With the 212/264 software, 2 month old system, I have discovered the "Guide" will show 4 different episode of a series but the description for each episode is the same. And that description will be incorrect for all 4 episodes. This condition also occurs in "my recordings".

    My calls to Dish TV have gone unresolved, baffles the engineers.

    Please provide your receiver number to me in a PM so I can submit a trouble report to the engineers about this issue to determine if this is an isolated or a developing issue. Please let me know. Thanks.

    The word "reporting" is not applicable to rumors. :D
