    Would be interesting to hear from you - what is new ? Why a size of the SW increased up to 50 % ?
    Perhaps Sling support ?

    Hopefully they FINALLY fixed the laggy guide, and perhaps even fixed the System Wizard glitches.

    Received it last night I noticed today. I went through all the menus and did not see any noticeable differences at all.

    Last week my normally rock solid 722k started freezing then after
    a while it would reboot. This was happening alot then I noticed the
    L680 software, called Dish and the rep sent out a replacement.
    She seemed to think the unit was dying ....

    I swapped the unit and seen it also had the L680 software as
    well, the replacement looks like a new unit not a refurb.

    Long story short 6 hours after I installed it this new unit froze
    as well but by turning it off it and back on the problem was gone
    so it seems......... BTW it froze when I had it paused and the remote
    does nothing but allow me to turn it off..

    Not a happy customer with this new software if this keeps up
    I might have to give Direct a call :mad:

    :Note to Dish don't fix what isn't broken !!!

    Every time I consider upgrading to a 722k someone, like yourself, posts another issue and I change my mind. Hopefully, they'll get this straightened out. I'll wait.

    Just tried it and it did not work. Tries to find a slingbox on my network and can't. I'm running Win 7, and I can see my 722k in my network browser.

    Uncle Buck and others,
    I just had the identical situation happen with my 722k.
    A few days after taking the new software update the picture would freeze, then it would reboot. This was happening for the last several days every few hours. Then tonight I turn it on and I get an Error 720 messege..."Your hard drive has become corrupt.You must delete your entire hard drive or you will have problems with your receiver..Sorry for the inconvience". I'm thinking.... you must be kidding? I have all my favorite stuff recorded that is important to me and my family! Tried everything and had no choice...Had to hit delete!
    System reboots and starts the same crap again. I have yet to call Dish but was just about to. Any advice before I call? My 722k has been a flawless machine untill this software update. I just love that they added "Sorry for the inconvience" in the error messege.
    Thanks for listening.

    I was lucky that I had the EHD hooked up to mine and was able
    to get everything moved over, I never got that 720 message but
    who knows if I would have.

    My replacement 722k so far has only froze badly the day I installed
    it but since then the remote stops working every now and then taking
    repeated pressing of the buttons but it seems to come back without
    rebooting.

    Wish I could go back to any of the other software releases but
    this beta L6.80 ! :nono2:

    I've had this firmware for about a week now and I have no problems with it.

    So far I haven't had any lag issues like the ones that were introduced since L662. So far it's a winner for me :) .


    So far no System Wizard glitches either, but we'll see.

    Sorry to say, I have had one slow guide issue again with 680, pulled power and restarted and haven't had it since, that was about 4 days ago. Again, I just don't think this will be fixed unless they remove those banners under on demand. Seems like this is when it all started when they added those.

    Have you tried disabling the banners in the guide? I have banners disabled and have not had an issue.

    Yeah, they are disabled, but the 4 PPV banners when you go into the DVR menu you can't hide...it's those that are screwing everything up I believe.
