    I did get L6.15 last night so I'll try recording some Fox tonight to see if it fixed the audio problems.

    No 6.15 on either my 622 or 722, dangit. I don't have any problems really, but want the EHD folders bad.

    Still no L6.15 for me. Have they stopped rolling this out? I would sure love to get through a recorded KOMO newscast (Seattle ABC affiliate) without these awful audio dropouts! For what its worth, my zip code is 98001.

    With the new version the audio drop outs are worse for me and it randomly skips 10 seconds. I wish I had the old version back!

    vader22.. From the reports I am seeing it seems the St Louis is seeing more issue while the rest of the effected areas appear to be seeing an improvement. My guess is we are looking at two issues here and the fix as made the St. Louis issue worse. Just a guess of course, but the feedback seems to be indicating it.

    For info only, my 622 got L615 this AM. I'm in zip code 35xxx, so the rollout is continuing. BTW...I had no problems with 614 and now none with 615 (so far).

    Interesting. Older 622 before 722. I thought the reverse was the norm on earlier releases.

    I'm curious how you know this information about what is spooling to whom. Glad to have the information, though.

    See my post in the audio 6.15 thread - ABC is much much worse - you don't want 6.15.

    with L615 on my VIP622 the Broadband setup menu is changed, missing the setup for dish-online.

    I still have the same broadband problems of not staying connected, must be my receiver since I don't see anyone else with this problem. (I no longer get the "connect or pay $" at turn-on now, don't know why.

    I have no problems with audio or blocking on OTA or LIL here in San Antonio, of course we don't have NBC LIL.

    Got 615 yesterday or today. My autotune timer has not changed the channel to the proper channel during the past 2 days... Another member posted the same bug several days ago. It's not an isolated bug.

    No, it is not an isolated bug. I have three machines, two 622s and one 722 and all three do not autotune anymore.

    Today I rebooted by removing power to one 622 and the 722 to see if this cures it and will report back. On the other 622 I am going to delete the timer and set it up again without cold rebooting to see if this might fix it.

    My gut feeling is that none of the above will help.

    I've had a few other anomalies on one unit where some timers appeared out of nowhere including a dishpass with the criteria 'p which is quite strange. Could be a neighbor has a new receiver but will have to watch this closely for a while. I thought my cat might have walked over the remote enough to do it.:grin:

    In addition to experiencing audio dropout on a premium channel and a cable channel that I reported on the other thread, many of my timers set for "new" episodes of shows seem to be recording all episodes. I plan to do a power plug hard reboot Monday and delete and redo all the timers.

    I know I'm supposed to have patience, but I'm irked that we didn't get a L6.15 that only added the EHD folders upgrade followed by a trial run of L6.16 that only attempted to fix the audio dropout problem, so that it could be refixed with L6.17 without having to fix some glitch in timers.

    Tonight I stumbled into a set of problems I haven't seen before. I recorded "A Bridge Too Far" on MGM. I also recorded Cops from Fox OTA because it conflicted. Don't know if that matters.

    Watching Cops from recorded, I was trying to find the end of a commercial with skip forward/back buttons. As I was skipping back the back button suddenly seemed to change to the forward button function. Trying to skip back, I was actually skipping forward. I think I stopped the playback and restarted it to fix this. It happened more than once.

    Later watching the movie, I'm in about 45 min, when I wonder when this movie was made, so I hit Info. Nothing happens. The DVR is still playing but it is totally unresponsive to anything. I can't even get the DVR to power off. So I go to the the DVR front panel and start hitting buttons. Movie is playing but Menu or whatever does nothing. Eventually I hit power. No immediate action, but as I continue to press buttons, eventually it powers off then goes into the 5 minute power on cycle. After that finishes, I can restart the movie from where I pause it once earlier about 5 minutes in.

    Seems any new version is a crap shoot on what the latest set of problems will be. Does any of this sound like things that were happening in earlier versions? I never saw this but it sounds kind of familiar from earlier reports I read.

    Last night I was watching two channels using PIP (ESPNHD and NFLHD). After swapping between the two several times, the screen went black, but the audio continued uninterrupted. A power reset was required to restore normal operation. This happened frequently and was easily reproducible on 6.14, so it's not new to 6.15. It's only happened once so far with 6.15.

    I also noticed that the skip back sometimes skipped back and sometimes skipped forward - no rhyme or reason as to when, and not predictable.
