625 - Skipped Timers Reappear and Other Anomalies

This may be the same issue discussed in the VIP thread (topic/thread 200382) but my Dish 625 began reinstating skipped timers and exhibiting other timer anomalies about 7-10 days ago.

I haven't had ANY problems (knock on wood) with this 625 until this problem popped up. Software version is L548 so this wouldn't appear to be a software related issue but ... ?


Normally, an occasional timer shows multiple record times for the same program when an 'Episode #' is not associated with the program. When this happens, I manually 'skip' each of the duplicates.

Now, each morning when I review my timers, those 'skipped' timers are reinstated as valid recording events. It's as if I never 'skipped' them in the first place.

Also, when I manually 'restore, record' an event initially shown as 'old episode, do not record', the very next day that manual request to record reverts back to 'old episode, do not record'. Once again, it's as if I had not changed the timer. Timers revert to their default recording state.

Dish Tech Support suggested power cycling the receiver, which I've done. Since the power down/up, a receiver reboot (power button hold 5 sec) and a 'Check switch' test do not cause the skipped timers to reappear.

Is this a software issue or the result of Dish updating the guide each night?
