    Don't know if I ever got 4.06 or not on my 622, but this morning I seem to have 4.09, and nothing's working. Well, OTA is working, but the receiver keeps going through endless rounds of "acquiring satellite signal" with 0 progress made.

    What a fun upgrade!

    Anyone else having problems?

    I have L4.09 as well but it seems to be working just fine. I would do a hard reset and see if that corrects the problem for you.

    I've tried soft reset, hard reset, check switch, cleared the switch matrix - everything. Can't get a satellite signal on any sat/transponder in Point Dish. All sat channels are black with no audio. Looks like I have some sort of outside issue, even though I've inspected the antenna, switch, and cables as best I can (antenna is on the roof) and the weather is okay. And of course Dish can't send somebody out until Monday.

    I still think it's somewhat suspicious that I wasn't having a problem until I got this 4.09 update. Oh well.

    Flasshe,

    Here is something to try: Go to menu, 6, 1, 1 and choose transponder 13 on the 119 satellite. If you do get a signal run a switch test from THAT menu and see if that fixes the problem.

    Nope, I don't get a signal on that or any sat/transponder. Not even on 61.5, which is a different antenna, so I know it's not an alignment issue. Something's really hosed.

    Flasshe,

    Here is something that I always suggest when all else fails: do a factory reset (menu, 6, 6). If that does not help try a "power reset" (remove power for 5 minutes, then plug it back in).

    Same problem here twice with 4.09.
    I have to disconnect both RG-6 cables to regain signal.
    Reboot does not work.

    Does any of that wipe out the hard disk? I have a lot of unwatched recorded programs...

    SteveRS, I tried disconnecting the cables from the back of the unit, and that didn't help. I even did the procedure to clear the DPP44 switch matrix, since the first check switch didn't work. (Disconnect cables, do a hard reset, run check switch with cables disconnected, connect cables, hard reset, check switch again.) That has worked before for me in similar situations. That worked and it said the switch was okay, but I still got 0 signal strength on all sats/transponders, and the endless "acquiring satellite signal" loop (which even occasionally displayed nothing under "satellite" and transponder 0).

    I won't be able to try anything new until I get back home tonight, but thanks for the suggestions, guys!

    Apparently l4.09 tried to go to a lot of receivers. One of mine tried to take it but hung up. When I checked it this morning it was "on" with a 303 message, but it stayed on that for over an hour. I finally gave up and pulled the plug. It then went into boot recovery (first time I've seen that). Came back up as l4.05, but I then turned it "off" and it eventually rebooted itself and l409 showed up. Other then the announced l4.06 features (some of which will take awhile to test), the only thing I see of interested some unusual new counters on the diagnosis screen.

    Does anyone know exactly when L4.09 spooled. I checked both of my 622's this morning before I left for work at 5:00 AM eastern time and I still had L4.05 on both. I'm hoping it spooled after that and I possibly received it.
