    Checked this morning and L6.27 is now loaded on my 622...a quick check of the menu's did not show any changes...was hoping this release would have the audio-leveling option mentioned a few months back on one of the Chat's..

    Maybe someone can find and post what this update does...

    I got an email from my engineering source at E* this morning. It said to be on the lookout for L627 which is supposed to contain a fix for the unrequested deletions on the EHD. I don't have any other info.

    Me three :D

    Ever since I lost the oldest recording on my EHD, I have been afraid to view any more. (actually I did try one other playback of a program that I didn't care if it got deleted and it's still there).

    Your desire to keep a program is indirectly-proportional to its chances of being deleted. That's why I Restore everything to my 622 before watching it. It might be a habit I continue even if L6.27 fixes the problem.

    I have confirmed a repeatable bug in this release.

    My 622 setup, single mode with OTA connected.

    I have my 622 timer set to record the PBS news hour every M-F at 6-7pm from OTA (because Dish does not yet carry PBS HD). The two satellite tuners are always left on Dish channels and my TV and Dish receiver are "off"...(this allows me to finish dinner and then restart the news hour from the beginning.

    I turn on my TV and 622 (tried both power button and Select button, which is my normal method) and results are the same.

    When the 622 turns on while an OTA recording is in process I get a blank screen with no video or audio...pressing the "View" button displays the status bar at the top but still no video or audio.

    After trying several methods to restore video/audio, other than a soft reboot, I found that toggling the PIP controls (Position button will bring up split screen with both videos displayed from Dish tuners, but still no audio) then using the Swap button a couple of times will finally restore both the audio and video, then turn PIP off and everything is back to normal.

    I can then use my normal DVR controls and select the PBS news recording that's still in process and select the "Start over" option and everything works fine...no loss of content in the OTA recording...

    I have not tried turning the 622 on when a timer is recording a Dish channel to see if this minor bug also effects that, or if it's just associated with turning the 622 on when an OTA recording is in process.

    This bug just started with this new firmware release...

    I was recording Discovery thursday night and was watching OTA when the screen froze with no audio. I tried to change channels and the screen went black but the menu worked and the banner would display. It indicated that the dvr was still recording and only had 15 minutes to record. When I checked the recording the recording was 15 minutes short. I am wondering if L6.27 came down that day and needed to be reboted.

    No, It can do that all by itself. It can do it even if you are not watching the OTA channel, but the OTA tuner is tuned to a channel.

    I was just about to complain about the advertising added to the program guide, but I found that you can turn it off - Menu - 6 - 1 - 6.

    Whew ... for a minute there I thought there was one less reason not to switch to cable. :)

    L6.27 was on my 622 this morning and since I am usually one of the last to get software updates isn't it about time - mods - to sticky this thread?:sure:

    I got 6.27 on my 622 yesterday which surprised me since I'm usually at the tail end of the update window. My 722 is still on 6.25.
    I tried to loose a file on my EHD last night and never did. Fingers crossed:rolleyes:

    When I checked this morning, I also had 6.27 on my 722. I think I last checked two days ago.
