    Hopper reverts back to "My Channels" every night now. Ugh.

    Word on the street is that everyone should have S238 by Friday morning.

    Mine was doing that after the update also. Yesterday I set the guide on the favorite list of choice and did a power cord reset. This morning it was still on the list of my choice.

    It looks like it always reverts to a specific channel list. I consider this a bug. It should always keep the last selected list, until changed. For me it's not the case.
    For example, if I wanted to browse my OTA channels with CH+ CH- and I select that list, after the first channel change it reverts to my list of choice automatically. Resets won't help.

    BTW, since the last update I've noticed several auto resets while watching. Never happened before.

    Be sure all your receivers (Hopper & Joeys) are on standby overnight. If any are on then that may block the software upgrade.

    I have been waiting to post this in case it jinxes me but with S238 on both Hoppers now I will say it appears to have fixed the problem with both Hoppers losing internet connection everyday: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=212175. When I go into Network setup for the Ethernet port on both Hoppers it still says DHCP Failed, but both have their legitimate IP Addresses, both show connected to the internet and I can access both via the remote app or website. :joy:

    And this morning the guide defaulted to My Channels again. No fix yet I suppose.

    I thought that was a feature, not a bug?

    I don't know if I would call it a "feature," but it's certainly intentional, and will not be "fixed."

    Ive noticed Dish is inserting (moving?) more of their channels into different places in the guide (my channels) where previously they didn't exist, its obvious you wouldn't see these if this "feature" didn't exist and their subscribers were only surfing on user generated "favorite" lists.

    My take is while it may not be convenient for the user it could potentially generate more revenue for Dish.

    FWIW the guide does seem to stay on My HD channels. I know that's not the same as a customized favorites list but it's better than going to My channels like my 922 did even when using My HD channels. Since I mostly watch HD anyway that guide does the job.

    My guide has remained on my selected favorite list for the last couple of days. Maybe the My Channel "feature" broke on mine. :lol: And the EHD has been visible continuously since this last update.

    I may have spoken too soon. The Hopper guide was switched to My Channels last night, not My HD. Also my Hopper still loses sight of one or both EHD's just about every day.

    So far the only thing S238 has done for me is add a couple of colorful buttons to my banner display:(

    Not that again. I actually did try to do it but the two WD drives that I have do not have the WD Smartware that gives a user control panel with one of the options being standby mode on/off. I don't know of any other way to turn it off.
