    I had to reset all my OTA timers as they converted to the satellite lil's. No Dish Home. What is new? No additional satellite locations in Point Dish. Can see the transponders for Rainbow on 61.5.

    This download is only going to 10,000 921 users initially, marking the first 921 software download that is not going widespread yet. This is due to the fact that there are now enough 921s in service to break the release cycle as it's done with the other receivers. If no serious problems occur, it should go widespread to all here in the next couple of weeks.

    So, if you don't get it today, it will be a couple of weeks before you do get it. I'm very interested myself to see how much of what's been fixed in this release makes it into the release notes. This one's the biggest one that I've ever seen for this receiver.

    One of the really nice things for me, in addition to having seen no ZSRs or hard drive wipes in some time, is that they gray bars mode is fixed now so that there are no longer the black strips between the video image and the gray bars.

    Also, you can now check signal strengths on the voom transponders on 61.5 - 1,3,5 and 7.

    The screen movement controls in the preferences move the video image now, in addition to moving the overlay graphics.

    Ton of other things as well that don't immediately come to mind. I really hope that this release treats you all well - it's been very good for me.

    Mark,
    Do you know if any OTA tuner issues have been addressed by this release?

    ME TOO. Also, I tested the manual recording functions and they worked properly!

    I also see this with one channel. WZZM (8710) has program information but WZZM-DT (13-1) says "No Information Available" all of the time. L215 apparently has not fixed this problem. The rest of my OTA locals show program information just fine.

    Mark/Allen, is there any OTA guide fixes? I remember with L212, or was it L211, it took a while for the program guide to actually display guide data for OTA... maybe after an EPG download that night or something?

    Doesn't a "checkswitch" force the EPG download?

    Yes, there were a group of OTA fixes. Yes, there was at least 1 OTA guide data fix that I know of. Yes, I know how many 921s are in operation, but that's NDA material, so I can't comment on it. More than you'd guess, though.

    My quick observations...
    1) CC issue with some OTA's is fixed.
    2) OTA tuner lock seems faster.
    3) Machine performance (EPG movement, moving through menu options, etc) is snappier.
    4) Search shows matches as they're found during the search, rather than waiting until search is complete before showing anything.

    It's by receiver CAID number, Eagles, but I don't know how they were chosen. Oh, 720p CC is fixed in this release as well, btw (or at least it looks fixed to me).

    I hope length of 921 ownership has something to do with it. I'll find out in a couple of hours. I'll be one unhappy camper if I didn't get it.

    Mark, are you on 216 or a future version of software now? If not, when do you expect the next software to be released after this one WITH the new features in them?
