    Ok I got L4.41 on both my 622's last night at 3am, I had done a factory reset on both my receivers, and went to rebuild my favorites lists, the problem was, when adding new channels to the list they would not stick after saving the settings and going back to the guide also new channels which I did not select would show up on the favorites list, I had to go back over it numerous times to get them to stick, I never had this problem before, L4.41 it was reproducible on both my 622'2.

    Maybe it is me but...

    I have several movies saved on the 622. If I edit the title of the movies from the original title to "Movie -- Name of Movie," shouldn't they all be grouped in a folder called "Movie?" I tried this and they are not grouped. I also tried to edit the title of the movies from the original title to "Movie Name of Movie." Same result.

    Am I wrong that they should group? Do I need to do something different?

    I called the 888-241-2205 this morning and pressed 0 as I didn't have my account number memorized and they picked up right away. I had to pay with credit card on the spot - they wouldn't add it to my bill. It activated within seconds. I already copied some recordings over. Some were from OTA channels - others were from premium channels. I tried connecting the drive back to my computer and of course Windows XP says it is an "unknown partition" and it doesn't list the file system. But it does say it is 100% free even though I know my files are on there that I copied over.

    I am kinda hoping they make the OTA recordings available away from my vip 622 as these shouldn't need to have DRM.

    Group by title will only group recordings together that have exactly the same title.

    I called the 888-241-2205 number, gave them my phone number, and the external drive was activated. They said that the $39.95 "processing fee" would show up on my next bill.

    They need to be the EXACT same name, i.e., Jeopardy!, Wheel of Fortune, Masters of Science Fiction. etc. Naming them: Movie - Jaws, Movie - Ali G in da house, etc. is not the same thing. You could name them all Movie, but that would be kind of silly. :)

    Haven't had much time to play with 441 yet, but I've found the new signal meter is horrible! (I never got 406/409.) Of course, Sat 129 TP 27 gives me a SS of 16, in the yellow. And I think it's that TP that give me a yellow box on the System Info screen. Ugh. Most people can identify with a 1-100 scale, at least make it proportionate to that.

    It's also case sensitive, as in:

    Just For Laughs

    is not the same as

    Just for Laughs

    and episodes will show up in two different groups (same show on the same channel, except some weeks they capitalized the F in For, and some weeks they didn't).

    I attached an AcomData 500gb USB drive to the rear USB port on my 622.

    First I got a message saying that I had attached an unsupported device. When I clicked O.K. it said that the device needed to be formatted. Formatting appeard to proceed normally and took about 3 minutes after which the receiver rebooted itself. When it started up again it said that I had too many USB devices attached, but when I went to the "manage USB devices" menu, the drive showed up with 467GB free. I then selected about 40GB of programming to transfer and got a message saying the transfer would take 2 hours, 41 minutes. About 20 minutes later I went to check on the progress and found the receiver hung on downloading a program guide update. I did a hard reboot (power disconnect) and the receiver hung saying that I had an unsupported USB device attached. When I clicked O.K. it hung again at the acquiring satellite signal 0 of 5 stage.

    It appears that not all external disk drives will work. Has anyone else tried this drive?

    The second time I tried to manage the device I got a message saying I was trying to view a device formated for another receiver. It then erase my stored program and reformated the drive. I am now afraid to send any more shows to the Seagate Freeagent 500gb. Anyone else have this problem??

    Agreed - very annoying...especially since when you go to "All Channels" it then prompts you to ""Press GUIDE for All Sub", when you get to "All Sub" it prompts you to "Press GUIDE for ALL HD" and...

    ...you get the idea...:nono:

    They made the same change on the 211 :mad:

    +1 from me. That's one of the first things I noticed too. blinking/flashing = very annoying. But then, I suppose it's annoying because I already know that, but it keeps blinking away at me. Ah well.

    What you say does make sense, BUT... I just got off the phone and is was told I would have to pay the $40 for each receiver. I pushed and elevated and a second rep. confirmed it. I still think you are correct, but I cannot get DISH to corroborate your story.

    I should point out the scenario I presented. I asked if I paid the $40 now for my 622 and some time in the near future I upgraded to the 722, would I have to pay the $40 again to activate it - and they said absolutely YES. This would be in addition to the $149 upgrade charge.

    They should've put this as a tip in the new screen saver. Why anyone at Dish thought having the blinking going on in the guide would be a good thing is beyond me. I'm certain they get a lot of calls asking how to rotate through the favorites, but come on. There has to be a better way than the way they implemented it.

    I have this problem also. I basically can't edit my favorites lists any more... selections don't stick, random things I didn't select show up in the list, etc. It's unusable now. This REALLY sucks.:mad:

    I see they fixed the Closed Caption. You can now use your TV closed caption instead of the Recievers Closed Caption. I like the TV's better then the Recievers...
