    I just came across another nice fix. I had paused a show during dinner. After dinner, I watched the rest of it and changed to another channel. This time the 921 warned me that I would switch to live mode and lose the material I've recorded. Very good!

    Count me in as one of the lucky ones. L215 arrived and so far, everything looks solid. Of course, we're not the most demanding consumers, at least as far as our viewing habits go.

    Not that I care all that much but I thought the Dish Home Interactive app was going to be a part of this release? That's been the one thing mentioned many times over the last couple months. Was that the reason for the last minute waveoff and change to L2.15?

    I noticed there's no 129 sat location unless it's just something that needs to be unlocked later.

    Guide info for OTA with no subscription (I don't subscribe to locals) is GREAT!!

    The gray bar alignment has also been fixed.

    Looks good to me so far :)

    Closed Captioning does not work correctly for the FX channel when I'm using the 720p 16:9 format. I was watching Rescue Me. It used to work just fine. What the CC did was freeze showing a block of words.

    I live about 40 to 50 miles from the towers but a hill between me and them.My dad can get FOX at 60% but he lives on a hill about a mile from me.

    Still no guide data after about 12 hours, this really stinks.

    Well my HECD was working great and out of the blue the normal picture on an SD program stretched and filled the screen. The Format button does not functrion. A program is recording so I can't do a reboot.

    I had the same thing. I just posted a bug report.

    A soft reboot fixed it for me.

    I got OTA guide info for every channel now!!! even PBS!!! sweet finally......

    Seems like 215 is good, cant find any problems so far and like i meentioned the interactive tv has games and a cool weather feature, pretty cool stuff.

    I wonder what took so long for the update, I wonder if they had problems with soletaire??? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Something strange i noticed about the 921 (not sure if its new to 215 or not) if the 921 is on and you are in grey bar mode, if you send a discrete on command to the 921 it changes back to normal mode. BUT if you turn it off and then back on with the same discrete on its fine it stays in grey bar mode. Just kinda weird no big deal and not a problem, just weird.....

    Search results now show channel number instead of channel name. Not sure yet if I like this but at least it makes it easier to identify the super station channel number from the mirrored LIL number. I had blocked all the duplicate channel numbers hoping to keep them out of the results list but they're still included.

    Maximum number of search results has been increased. Don't know what the new max is but I just got 498 matches on "perform". Now I only have to do that once a week instead of every 2-3 days.

    When deleting search history entries (yeah!) the list become a mess. I would almost say scrambled mess but it's still in order. At least 2 entries have the yellow outline highlight, sometimes you see 5 lines, sometimes all 6 as you arrow down through the list.

    In addition to guide info for digital locals (great for when I'm at my service address) the LIL channels I don't subscribe to now show in the All Channels guide which is a first for any of my receivers.

    Slow motion still jumps ahead four seconds when it starts.

    I noticed that now if a recording goes all the way to the end and stops, the option now defaults to "Erase" instead of "Start Over" and if the recording is stopped before the end, the option defaults to "Resume" instead of "Start Over". Small items, but I like them.

    What I discovered after 215 is guide info from dishnetwork (not the PSIP from digital stations) apeared at 7634 -7637 which are the Rochester NY locals for ABC, NBC, CBS & Fox (superdish 121 required). They show up as red because I don't subscribe but at least I can read the the guide info if the guide mode is set to All-Chan. I don't have the info mirrored to any of the actual analog or digital channel slots. Also no PBS in the 7634-7637 range.

    Thanks to all who have posted descriptions of the changes brought with L215. Any idea when we can expect "official" release notes? Apologies if this has already been answered.

    I live in the Oklahoma City area and recieved 215 yesterday. I have waited for the guide to populate and I still do not have Local guide information for NBC, CBS and PBS. I had that information with 212 lost it with 213.

    Set a timer on OTA local guide and recorded an OTA HD one hour program for the first
    time ever last night. 921 worked perfectly. Replayed the program and picture and
    sound quality is excellent.

    Can I cancel my Dish Locals and still get OTA guide information?

    Same here in Salt Lake...I get guide info for fox sd on 13-1 but no info on hd 13-02 as well as nbc...guide info on 5-1 but no info on 5-2. What is annoying is with 211 I had all the guide data but since I do not. I sub to locals. I really wanted this fixed just for the ease of setting a timer for hd on nbc or fox...I still have to do manual and of course after record there is no show info in pvr list :nono2:

    Still waiting for release notes like everyone else. Here is the little info that I got from my contact at E*

    "L2.15 incorporated 193 primary fixes & changes, no less than 18 addressing PIP and 35 addressing video or video + graphics. Some video, graphic and PIP items will require a two step / multi release approach as we don't want to cause a problem with a fix where one didn't exist before."

    Mark; is it time to start posting bug reports?

    It seems that my unit (215 SW) has lost the ability to get one of the local channels; KHWB Houston (broadcasting on 38, shows as 39-000(A) and 39-001(D)).

    I can get the 39-000 channel (looks like it might really be analog, has noise in the picture), but 39-001 says "channel not found...".

    I have a recording of this channel from the day before (under 213 sw) so it used to work.

    Tried rescan everything and rescan of only 38, made no difference. Plenty of signal strength on the scan. Did not have time to do a reboot yet, or check the channel on an alternate HD tuner. Seems someone wanted to watch TV...
