    I have a 622 that is being replaced (shipped out today) after having issues the last 3 weeks with the receiver locking up every night during updates. I actually witnessed it last night. A message popped up saying that channel info was being updated and the progress bar never moved. Screen went to static on TV2 and blank on TV1 and the receiver's fans kicked into full gear. I normally just find it in that state in the morning, continuously rebooting itself. Power button has no response, so a power cycle is needed before the unit will function.

    I'm pretty ticked because I will have to re-program all of my timers and pay the EHD activation fee to keep the shows that I have recorded and move them over to the new unit. Of course I'm leaving on vacation tomorrow so it's a crapshoot whether the timers that I have set for next week will actually get recorded. At least now I can check it remotely on dish.sling.com to see if it's still online...

    Is there any way to transfer timers from one receiver to another? That would be awesome.

    I'm having a problem with creating Dish passes, which may be related to 6.22.

    Whenever I try to create a DP, during the setting up of options for the pass (but after the search string has been entered), the process freezes on the main DP screen. I can't move the cursor, and eventually the unit reboots.

    That sounds more like it sticking on a black screen and not every time.
    Mine is momentary everytime I swap tuners (one second of no audio or video)
    It never stays black.
    It first showed up when L6.22 loaded on my 622 then the same on my 722
    weeks later when L6.22 loaded on it.
    I has not hendered the operation of the DVR at all.
    That breif blanking is just very anoying when your used it being instantanious.

    I've seen two bugs.

    The first occurs when deleting a recording from a Group. It will now clear the item except for the column showing that it was an HD recording.

    The second is much more serious and concerns OTA. First, doing a search will not show results for OTA channels even though they show in the guide. Second, scheduled recordings for OTA recordings disappear. Third, timers for OTA recordings do not show all future recordings. Software version 622 is currently not usable for OTA recordings on both my 622 and 722.

    Thats odd...my 622 search results show OTA channels and I have several OTA timers that all fire on schedule. If I press DVR 3 times to see scheduled recordings the OTA channels show for the next 8 days....:confused:

    Do they show the mapped down OTA in the search results?

    [EDIT]
    Sorry, too early in the morning. I just double checked and a search for "House" and "Glee", two of my wife's shows, do not show 002-01 (KTVI in St. Louis) in the results for either search on either my 622 or 722. I also did a search for "Tennis" and it doesn't show 004-01 (St. Louis KMOV) though it shows 004-00. When I created a Timer for Glee yesterday the Timer still existed but it lost the single recording it was supposed to record. I had to record from Sat.

    What is "mapped down OTA"???

    OTA doesn't get mapped down. It is presented uniquely on the channel number of the broadcast with the appropriate dash for the subchannel. LIL get mapped down.

    We MUST NOT confuse LIL with OTA.

    That it why I said it was too early in the morning. It will show the mapped down SAT channels in the search results as well as the unmapped down channels, but it does not show the OTA channels -01, -02, etc. in the search results even though it shows in the guide.

    You didn't say so I'll ask. Have you unplugged since 6.22 downloaded?

    Also, a channel re-scan?

    Why would I do that? The system did not prompt me to do so. If it is known that doing so is necessary to complete the update process then inclusion of a prompt to do so should be part of the process itself.

    But, yes, I did. No difference on either my 622 or my 722.

    I did a channel re-scan on my 722 before I first posted on this issue. I also did a check switch afterwards.

    I just completed a search for "Paid Programming" and it showed entries for both LIL and OTA. I searched for "Daisy" and it gave me a single entry on a OTA PBS subchannel.

    I was not able to duplicate the issue.

    You have been a member of this forum since 2007 and you have to ask why you would do a reboot? And to my knowledge the system never prompts to do a reboot. But after having had a number of Dish DVRs and reading this forum for a while I along with many others know to do a reboot after new software is installed. And to mention a reboot was done when asking for help solving a problem.

    Now, all that being said, if a reboot did not solve the problem you have two options. Call Dish for help or live with it.

    If a reboot is required after receiving a software update and the system does not either automatically reboot or prompt the user to take that type of action then there is a bug. This is a bug thread. I am experiencing non-standard behaviour on two receivers after receiving a software update so I am posting a bug, not trying to resolve the problem. If I had thought anyone here could help to resolve the problem I am experiencing then I would have created a new thread to discuss the issue.

    I found another bug with 6.22: sometimes group recording counters (which are displayed at the right of the group name in the groups root menu) will not show the correct number of programs in the group folder. For example, I have one folder right now that is at the top of the groups root menu list with one recording in it, and yet the group counter shows zero recordings. Moving the file out and and back in the folder or deleting the folder and recreating it won't change the folder counter, it remains always at zero.

    My Dish locals come from Birmingham...I have my OTA coming from Montgomery, so I have no duplicate local channels to map down.

    Even if I did have my OTA locals the same as my Dish locals I would not want duplicate "hits" in my search function...as a matter of fact the search function does show both the "high" channels and the map-down channels in a search function for Dish channels that have map-down...

    An example, I did a search for "NFL Preseason" and get double hits for the NFL channels...I would prefer an option to limit this to just the "mapped" down channel....:rolleyes:

    I have the channels I don't want to see in searches or guides (I occasionally look at All Sub or All HD guides) locked out.
