Spool expanded (110W tp21) to four (actually one and three individual numbers) ranges of old DVRs:

Got my update this morning and right off the EPG locked up. Upon selecting a station it changed in the video window, but the guide portion did not go away. I could change stations but the guide would still stay up. I did a 10 sec "pulled plug" reset, that I usually do once I see an update has been installed, that fixed it and it hasn't happened again. I'm curious as to what other "surprises" are in store?

I had to do a front panel reset on my 722k again tonight. The 722k stopped responding to the remote and then the picture just went black. Last night the guide froze on screen. I was going weeks between a forced restart until this firmware arrived and now two days in a row.
You pick wrong thread.

There is two of them:

722k - L7.52

722 - L7.25

Working this problem? Really? I wish I could find the slightest evidence. Seems to me like they've been ignoring it for many months.
Well ... since the worlds are not crossing and they has own problem to solve ...

I had a separate thread about this problem, but since my software is L725 I'll mention it here:

I'm also having the problem that the DVR occasionally stops responding to buttons on the remote other than those used to directly change channels (channel up/down, numeric keypas). Pressing the Guide or DVR buttons does nothing, although I do not get a black screen as others have reported.

Forcing a reset or power cycle is the only way to get it working again.

Wow. This is really discouraging. As I say, I'm a newbie here and have only ever had one nasty problem with DISH, but on this one, they've proven pretty useless so far. When I found this place, I thought maybe this is where problems might get the attention they deserve.

I note that there seem to be folks from Dish tech services who pop their heads up here once in awhile.

But apparently I'm wrong to think / hope that they will get on top of these annoying problems. Seems really strange not to stay on top of these problems.

Basically the "trick play" functions of skipping backwards and forwards have been broken in one way or another for years; I don't expect they'll ever get it right.
Afraid that you are correct. When we first got a 622, "trick play" worked great. Then Dish had the problems with Tivo, and ever since then it has been impossible to stop the action and then step through frame by frame. The picture is liable to jump anywhere. This has been the case on a couple of 622's, our first 722, and now a replacement 722. And it is not the case that the receiver has to jump to a "key frame". No way that "key frames" are 15 minutes, or more, apart.

I have this happen very rarely, not even within the past 4 months can I remember it happening. If I do see it, it seems to happen on one program and that show only--so after it happens, I know to "skip" slowly--not my usual of 4 clicks at a time.

Sorry you are having problems, but if others have it happen only as often as I do, I doubt it's a high priority for the technical staff. Unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds is about the only advice I can offer, and it sounds like you've done that. Good luck!
