    So we are at the mercy of Dish to send this later, to fix the HardDrive issues???

    It is by no means guaranteed that L4.43 would fix the EHD issues being reported here. Actually the only fix in the releases notes seems to be around recognizing you have a drive in so I would definitely have my doubts this fixes the Seagate and WD premium issue being reported. However, I don't have either so I guess we will have to await an update.

    And yes... You cannot force an update. They are targeted to a set of receivers so the software just comes when it comes. There is no way to make it appear faster aside from getting a new box.

    My new 722 with 443 works great with my WD Mybook 500GB PREMIUM edition. NO issues at all. FYI

    L443 didn't include the change for using same account ViP's with the EHDD. Mine wants to format on the third swap.

    I had L4.41, but I was updated to L4.43 on Tuesday morning.

    I only noticed it because the date/time banner stopped blinking.....

    Everything else seems to be working fine.

    Didn't fix the favorite-list editing problem or the HDMI aspect flag problem.
    OTOH, it didn't seem to break anything else.

    No. I just got 443 (had 441 before). My Seagate FreeAgent Pro 500 GB has the same problem with 443 as it had with 441 -- after falling asleep and waking up, trick mode has many problems. I posted more detail in the Seagate "chime in" thread.

    I'm having weird issues when "chase-viewing" a currently being recorded program where it will skill to "Live TV" all of a sudden. This is with 4.43.

    I received L4.43 yesterday on my ViP-622 (upgraded from L4.41). Last night I lost all audio output for TV1 (from RCA jacks) after using trick modes for a while. I had to do a hard reboot to get audio back. Then this morning, the receiver rebooted while I was using skip forward while viewing a recorded program.

    Received 443 this AM. Have lost all off air channels (previously all upgrades downloaded flawlessly). Contacted Dish and got the usual runaround - did ALL the tests at least twice.
    Anyhow, in the end I was told there will be a report written up, and in the mean time I SHOULD CONTACT A RETAILER AND HAVE MY ANTENNA CHECKED OUT.
    Even I could do that - just hooked the indoor antenna directly to the TV and naturally I get beautiful pic.
    What do I do?

    By tests.. what do you mean did all the test. Are you saying you sent through soft reboot, hard reboot? What do you get when you go to locals and try and manually scan the channel? do you get anything?

    Hard reset, soft reset, switch test. Tried auto scan to get channels - nothing. Tried to add them manually - nothing. Flat 0 strength. Everything was working fine yesterday.

    Got up this AM and found that I had no signal on all Off the Air channels. I normally get 39. Tried soft and hard reboot. No help. Then checked and found out that I received 4.43 overnight. Also lost HDMI input, the same problem I had last year when the receiver was first installed. The first update pushed to the receiver last year solved the HDMI problem till today.

    Called customer support and had already tried all suggestions. She said she would send out a new DVR. I tried to convince her that it was L4.43 that was the problem but she insistede that 4.43 was "GOOD".


    Now I wait without all the local Off the Air channels and cannot use HDMI..

    Please push me back to 4.41!!!!!:mad:

    Take a look at this thread.... Might be of some help. This appears to have happend with L4.03. Not sure if they are related but worth a try.

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=85243&highlight=Loss+of+OTA

    As for pushing back to L4.41, it is a rare thing that they back rev and it is never done on an individual basis.

    I tried the power cord reboot after deleting the channels. Still no result. 0 strength after both scan and manual attempts to add the channels.
    I guess I'll have to give Dish another try. Maybe they will offer a replacement?

    It appears to me that L443 has a code problem such as a missing lookup table that controls the Hi-VHF section of the on-board OTA tuner decoding a digital signal. This pertains to channels 7-13. I can't get any channels that transmit on channels 7-13. The OTA channels above and below 7-13 (Xmit) seem to be ok. Please confirm.
