    ViP622/ViP722 - L6.22 Software Experiences/Bugs Discussion

    It appears that L6.22 for the ViP622/ViP722 has begun spooling to some customers. Please use this thread to post your experiences and bugs found with this release.

    Be sure when you report an issue or an experience be sure to include details and specify what receiver you saw it on. We definitely have seen some issues be receiver model specific so including the model is always good practice.

    After receiving an update, if your box does not appear to be operating properly first step should be, find a ten minute period where nothing is recording, and then pull out the AC plug for 20 seconds and then plug it back in.


    Reported Fixes or new Features:
    • Anamorphic output to RF is back!
    • Transfer button and the Playlist button have been removed.
    • Automatic group listing now updates after deleting a program.
    • DVR No longer freezes when accessing MyGroup while a event inside is recording

    Reported Possible New Issues:
    • Report of Guide's group pop up being reset after night update.
    • Report of excessive fan noise after nightly update

    Other Reported Highs and Lows:


    Moderator Note: Feel free to report getting it or not, but don't be surprised if we sweep through and delete those type of posts with an update at the top indicating the state of the roll out.

    and it seems to have messed with my pause feature. :( Now, when I pause a live program and come back 10 mins later (as an example), it restarts from the beginning of the buffer (59 mins) and I have to FF to get back to where I originally paused the show.

    Has anyone else noticed this? :confused:

    The version begin spooling a couple days ago.

    I did the pause for 10 min and got no problem to continue.

    Only thing I noticed so far is the Transfer button and the Playlist button seem to be gone. Since neither did anything useful, I have to assume they are futures that weren't suppose to be seen yet.

    Did l6.21 ever complete the rollout to all 722's? It did reach all 622's

    Last night my HDMI connection on my 622 went dead. This morning I noticed that my firmware was updated to 6.22. I don't know if they are related. I am calling tech support and expect to spend the next hour talking to morons.

    Mine is still 6.18 and I've been looking online for a prayer that keeps me there at least until it is determined (by others) that 6.22 works. Prayers for the selfish are hard to find.:sure:

    Now - who is going to volunteer to playback something in a user-created MyGroup while a program in the same user-created MyGroup is recording ? :D

    Automatic group listing now updates after deleting a program, like they did prior to 621. That's how I noticed the sw had been updated again. I don't use MyGroups so I haven't tested those.

    L6.22 is on one of my 622s this morning. No problem with pause. Haven't explored it otherwise. Did check to see if tuner 2 still had a format problem the first time it was used after nightly update. I think that problem is gone but will need to monitor it for a few days. (Problem I've had is SD channels, which are setup for Stretch format, would appear with wide black sidebars every day after nightly update. Cycling through the format options would fix this until the next update.)

    Hooray! It looks like anamorphic output to RF is back! Thanks Dish! I turned the TV on upstairs and it took me a few minutes to recognize what was going on. Thrilled to see a new software version on my 622.

    Got L6.22 last night. I've never gotten an update so quickly after a release. Don't know what it's doing to my 622 yet. So far so good.

    No, but last night was update night for my 622. I'll check it out in the morning - by default, since everything I do with the EPG uses the Favorites list.

    Dish must be pretty confident in L6.22. My older 622 is usually updated very early in the cycle and the newer 622 doesn't get updated until 3 to 5 weeks later. L6.22 was updated on both receivers within 3 days. In fact, it may have been on the same day but I didn't bother to check the newest receiver at first because I wasn't expecting it to updated so soon.

    There's still one problem with L622 that didn't get fixed. If you watch a program which is still being recorded on a delayed basis, the time remaining indicator in the banner at the top of the screen reflects the time remaining until the program is actually over (i.e. time until the recording ends) rather than the time remaining in your viewing of the recording. Example-if a one hour recording has five minutes until it's completed and you just begin watching it the time remaining indicator will reflect five minutes rather than sixty minutes. As soon as the recording ends the time remaining indicator will change to reflect the proper time left in the program. This bug began with L621.
