Mine seems to have no set pattern when this happens. It will get back to normal by its self.
Well, I'm not alone. Two different 722's at L721 have experienced the problem in the past few days. I don't keep up with versions that often so I have no idea when I got L721.
Tonight the guide took exactly 8 seconds to appear. Scrolling through the grid was like pulling toe nails. A hard reset made it usable again.
L7.21 start spooling 9/29/2011.
I think this is related to the VOD stuff. I almost never used VOD in any form but have started to tinker with some of the free stuff under Networks. I noticed when I started a download last night that the guide delay began. Only 2-3 seconds compared to the 8 I was seeing earlier though.
There's no task manager that I know of on the 722 but I suspect some house cleaning or VOD program data (not video) is being downloaded during this slow down. Any thing of this nature should be done right after the complementary restart I get each day - because I can specify the best time for that.
Fortunately this problem has not yet become very persistent, just kindof random but very noticeable.
Having similar problem here with my 722 will do the reboot.
I also experience this issue. Resetting every evening is becoming a routine.
Same here. Having the slow guide issue for past two weeks. Only resetting helps for half hour. problem comes back. I have 722k with L866 software..
My 722K recently went bonkers on HD channels. Called Dish and got a replacement receiver (refurbished) about 10 days ago. Had no problems with the old receiver but now having the same problem as others with a very slow guide at times. Seems to come and go, works fast at times, at other times the guide is VERY slow. Very frustrating!!!!
new software for the 722k starting to roll out tonight. Hopefully this will fix it! I think the new 722 software started last night...
And your source is ?
Check this time official page here https://rweb.dishnetwork.com/departmental_content/techportal/content/tech/softwarelist.asp
As a DNS tech ive seen this problem alot here latley ...Alot of the new tv's these days have a "light sensor" which adjust the brightness of your tv depending on how much light is coming into the room....Turn this feature OFF ....It is known to have interference with our remotes.....Some cases turning the #1 remote into uhf is a fix too
I saw it over here: http://www.satelliteguys.us/dish-network-technical-discussions/268912-new-sw-vip722-l-721-a.html
In response to someone getting L.721 on their 722 last night and not seeing anything about it...
"Only 100K 722 units are getting the software today. The rest are scheduled for Thursday.
In addition to the 722 release today the following upgrades are also going out today and continuings on Thursday.
The 211/411 will get L564 on Friday but only for new installs (and this one is tentative)
No release notes as of yet for any of them."
Thanks. I see it as mixed bag - half of these mentioned FW spooling for days or weeks already.
Hmmm. My 722 has L7.21 and usually is near the end of the process. I guess I should do a hard reboot, but I'll wait until tomorrow.
According official page (see URL above) it's out from 9/29/2011.
or getting a harmony 1100 is the best!!!
I kind of doubt the issue we are experiencing is light based interference as its only persisting when using the guide. If it was IR interference the problem would also surface when using other functions on the remote, like using the menus, changing channels , ect.
This problem is also persisting when using the front panel to access the guide (menu>Program guide).
Great suggestion though, thats the first thing i checked when i noticed it on my set but really doubt that its the case now.
My guide was very slow, as well as the jump feature on the DVR. Well, I tried to figure out what was wrong and I might have screwed something up.
Now my VIP612's remote in the bedroom is changing channels on both televisions. The VIP722 remote still works, but when my wife changes channels in the bedroom, I get to ahve my channel changed in the living room as well.
I provided you instructions on readdressing your remote to your receiver on the other thread you created. Thanks.
