    Got 6.67 couple days ago, from 6.64. Box was slow as molasses again, so I had to reboot it. So far so good though on 6.67.

    Received 6.67 overnight last night. Today I have had sluggish response to access my recordings, had the channel banner freeze on the screen, and when trying to access the guide the picture froze and then the receiver reset itself.

    Prior to 6.67 all was fine. Did a plug pull and still not sure if it's better yet. Will wait and see over the next day or so.

    When pressing the DVR button the interface has been modified. There are 5 choices as follows:

    1 - My Recordings
    2 - DISH Cinema
    3 - TV Shows
    4 - Midnight Lounge
    5 - My Media

    2,3, and 4 access the Dish on Demand categories. 5 accesses an external HD if available.

    Once you pick an option the follow up screens appear to be the same.

    I've had a few timers fire two minutes late. In all cases, exactly two minutes late. I've also seen the box reboot twice while viewing a recorded event, for no apparent reason. Will do a plug pull to see if that calms things down.

    Seems to have stabilized after the third of three hard resets. However, I have only recored one event since the upgrade but it did play back completely and successfully.

    Also talked to tech support and after two hangups before I got someone who I could actually understand.

    The first guy didn't seem to even know what I was talking about when I mentioned 6.67, and the last guy kept wanting to send me a new box when I told him recordings were causing reboots. After telling him several times that when I was on 6.62 I had no issues, I gave up and asked him to please verify that he was logging my issue and I would callback if I decided I needed a new box.

    I am 99% certain it's not the box but 6.67 being finicky.

    I've had a couple glitches with 6.67. I had gotten a VOD TV show and when I finished watching it, when I tried to delete it, it said I didn't have any, then locked up and shortly after, rebooted.

    On the boot, it was sluggish as hell and locked up again and rebooted itself.

    I pulled the power and after that things seem OK, but I haven't gone into the TV show 'rental' area to see if my one is there and if I can delete it now.

    Seems a bit twitchy to me.

    I certainly don't doubt anything you've said, but I have to wonder why some people, such as myself, have 722ks with 6.67 and have no issues? :confused:

    Dish doesn't always upgrade all units at once.

    I don't have Midnight Lounge on mine, perhaps i is because I locked the adult channels...

    That's why I'm posting full info of each spool. Anyone could get IDs from SysInfo screen and check if it's the time ... or not.

    You are correct, the locking masks its visibility.

    Got the L667 on both of my 722k's last night. Haven't really tried them out yet. Will do soon when I get back home.

    I have 667, and today it *FAILED* the most basic test of a DVR: pause and rewind live TV.

    What happened: I had something recording on UCTV. I thought it was a series; in fact, it was the same lecture repeated multiple times. I was 50 minutes into the recording, and deleted the timer (and all 6 future recordings).

    It asked me if I wanted to stop the recording in progress; I said yes.

    It was then showing the "live TV" of UCTV. This was an unlisted 10 minute show on the pacific coast garbage patch.

    But when I tried to rewind to catch a segment, it rewound into that last 50 minutes of show that had been recorded.

    To clarify what actually happened (this is odd):
    1. The "time from the end" stayed at zero.
    2. There was no white bar showing
    3. There was a jump from the end of the recorded show to "Live".
    4. There was no way to see anything that had happened between 9:50 and "now". Only 9:00-9:50 and now.

    Changing channel fixed this, but I wanted to see that update on the garbage patch.

    ===
    Why am I forced to alter the programming on my box, rendering some features unworking? Why am I forced to be their beta tester? Why do I not have the choice to say, "I want to see what people are saying on the internet before I upgrade"?

    Previous to this software update,I was able to access the midnight lounge section. 5000+ adult movies would appear and you could order individual movies. Now,i try to select midnight lounge and it says "ATTENTION 943, This feauture is not available for viewing in your area" Whats up with that, did dish require a subscription to this feature now?

    I've worked with L667 for the past couple of nights, no real complaints, no bugs yet, the new menu seems out-of-place and I personally like the old menu style better, however, if it's just that one section that's modified I'm not really bothered by it.

    Menu looks like they Frankensteined it in off the 922.
