    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    What difference would it make? I addition to me, slatterie, and cornstalkk, have seen the initial boot to the Dish setup screen that you seem to question the existence of.

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    Here is the initial Dish screen This is the screen I have seen on my two replacement 622HZs sent directly from Dish. For me the screen only showed three sats. After it found them it would go to a downloading software screen and eventually pop up the the Homezone disk repair screen above. From...

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    Disk Repair in Progress Found it. Here is the link to the Dish document about the message received as the 622HZ transitions from Dish to AT&T software. http://rweb.echostar.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/images/pdf/tech/20070716_v2_HZ622Update_DNS_DN.pdf

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    No Dish, so no pix. I thought I stated clearly above that the box now resets to the 2Wire Homezone initial screen. If you want the scoop, call 2Wire. They will tell you NEW boxes boot with Dish software and that the hard disk repair screen is normal while the box downloads and switches to...

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    Update. The process above stalls at the point of looking fo transponder to download software. As I no longer have a dish, that would be expected. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in while simultaneously pressing the I/O, ATT globe, and Back keys. The box came back with the initial...

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    Nope. Just said they wanted to do a factory reset and that would delete any recorded programs on the drive. I didn't think it would do any good, nor did he or the on site tech, and I wanted to watch the recordings so I declined. When I did disconnect, I called and asked how to erase the box...

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    Some people don't see the initial Dish interface as some installers pre-prep the boxes as it is time consuming. The found errors notification is normal during the process. There are no errors, it just re-formatting the drive and setting it up for the HZ software. Somewhere in the HZ support...

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    My replacement boxes would boot to Dish software. After they found the right satellite they would download and generate the repairing disk notice. They would then reboot and come up with Homezone software. Therefore, I think a factory reset would bring back up the Dish software followed by...

    AT&T moves ahead on Dish deal

    AT&T is SBC. SBC bought the remnants of AT&T and changed their name to AT&T. Like NationsBank bought Bank of America and took the name as theirs.

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    It sounds like 2Wire tried to have you force a factory reset. That would reload the Dish software and then the AT&T Homezone software. Erroneously, the message for that routine says it is repairing errors on your disk. It is just re-partitioning and formatting it to accept the AT&T 2Wire...

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    I ain't the heat. 48c is around 127f and not too hot for the equipment. The temperature issue is just a Homezone "blame the customer" cover up. I kept mine cooled to the high 30c's and it made no difference. As Dish ViP622/722's don't have the issue it has to be the 2Wire AT&T operating system.

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    I am happily back with D* As stated above, I abandoned you guys Tuesday and went back home to D*. I could take the pain but my honey couldn't. D* gave me an HR20-100S, an H20, and a Slimline dish for $99, free premiums for three months, and free HD for a year. And I am not a NEW customer...

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    It's Been Fun But.................... After my 622HZ rebooted while ending the recording NBC Nightly News and starting the recording of the local news last night and FF/RW going psycho with the new software, I gave up. I called D* this morning and finally got a good deal to come back...

    Funny thing D* Sales Rep said about E*

    With DirecTV You Get a Pig in a Poke After admitting yesterday, that my Homezone 622HZ problems were because of unresolved software problems, I called D* about the price to come back. The said $199 but said I would get an H20-100, H20-700, or H21. They would not guarantee a box but said it...

    AT&T 622HZ (Homezone)

    It might be a blessing in disguise. My 622HZ is pretty screwed up and AT&T admitted today it is due unresolved software issues. The Homezone added features are kind of lame and don't work well. Plus you won't have External Storage capability which is must if you want to save HD movies.

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    Bad News AT&T sent two Dish techs today to replace the LNBs. That was the most recent theory for the spontaneous reboots and FF/RW issues. The tech didn't buy it and called in. Bottom line is that it is known 2Wire software issue that has not been resolved. My copy of the service call...

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    Me too. Numbers changed to 4.0.2.24 and M304RHBA. Next question. Does the update fix anything?

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    I've never had a Kernel Reset, whatever that is, but have 4 Watchdogs and 2 App Resets in the last ten days since the #3 was put on line. My Software is M303 as yours. My temps are 36, 44, 40 which are low. I don't think temp has anything to do with the crashes.

    ATT Homezone 622HZ Defective?

    Interesting. I don't have a DD5.1 issue but I don't have an HDMI Receiver. The Toslink (optical) connection seems to work. At least the receiver says it's 5.1 and an indicator light comes on. I do lose audio after a FF and RW. Talked to 2Wire today. Seemed clueless. They are now going to...

    One show records/One show doesn't

    It is supposed to do two then. There must be something else amiss.
