    Did you check all parameters of your 722 and the last spool selection criteria ?

    Anyone else notice any improvements attributable to L6.29?

    I guess it isn't in the list (I think). 1430RJQD, R0087760*.

    Oh well, it isn't that important. I seem to be running ok for now. :)

    Wait for a day or two and your DVR will be 'fixed' by new spool of the FW :).

    Found it under the Favorites preferences.

    Now if only I can find a way to get rid of that bloody advertisement that's started to appear at the bottom of the guide screen!

    I hadn't actually expected there to be a menu option to turn that off. But I'm quite happy to find that I was wrong!

    Wireless is on the Broadband menus, but grayed out

    Anyone have any info on that?

    The receiver's operating system seems to be working more quickly after L629.

    Specifically, due to Dish's interpretation that "NEW" must include un-dated episodes, and Tribune's method of classifying repeat episodes with unspecified original airdates as un-dated, I then have to manually SKIP repeat episodes of programs that go on "vacation" for a few weeks.

    This requires going to the Timer's list of upcoming episodes, and selecting each one individually and then clicking on "SKIP" and then waiting for the software to do its thing.

    Since L629, this wait has been somewhat shorter.

    It seems like they have eliminated some sort of overhead...

    Looks like L629 does not cure the black screen problem. Today I turned on my VIP722 while it was recording and got a black screen. The PIP/SWAP workaround still works. I was hoping that this bug was gone.:nono2:

    It's been almost two weeks since I got L629 on my 622 and no repeats of this problem have occurred....

    I'm sure you did, but just in case, power-cycle your 722 and see if a fresh boot kick-starts the new code...prior to L629 my receiver repeated this problem every day...since L629 it's been perfect...

    I finally got my update last night. I can't tell yet if it has "fixed" anything.

    Northern...
    My 722 got hit last night. As usual, I have no idea what changes it made except I did verify that greyed-out "Wireless" on the Broadband menu which doesn't do anything, of course.

    Nothing personal about him, but I would hesitate to trust the report of someone with one post.

    For example, such a person might assume that they have L629 without actually checking the info screen...

    Not sure when L629 arrived, however turned mt 722 on this evening to find the notice that my hard drive was corrupted and would need to be erased. Tried a soft reboot in hopes that might cure it....didn't...wiped out EVERYTHING I had on the drive...plus all my timers. Not sure of this is L629 related or not....but was enough to to get me to take a rare poke around on here to see if there was a new software rollout...and wadda ya know....there is. :mad:

    Ryan - sorry for your loss ! It has happened to me.

    It usually happens during a software update. I think that the software update process checks the hard drive before installing. This makes people think "Update L6xx killed my hard drive", when it is just the usual update process.
