I'll take that to mean the FF & skip buttons will now behave. I can hope, can't I?

Alright!!

The 512 upgrade came thru last night and my DVR keys are functioning properly again.

Hopes this also took care of the other problem where the channel would go to "acquiring signal" but as soon as you pushed the program guide key, it would come right back on. That was really beginning to piss me off. So far so good.

Same here, got it last nite and it fixed the dvr keys. Will have to see if it fixed the
"acquiring signal" problem also.

Does anyone know yet if it fixes the FF problem (not stopping the FF where you want)? Don't know what the references to fixing the DVR keys (?) in the posts above means.

I'm at Wallops Island VA (4hrs away from home) - so don't know if I've got the update yet, or if it fixes this problem.

I also have the acquiring signal problem but thought I had a cable or LNB or receiver problem. Maybe it was the new 512 software. Both of my 622s now have 512 so maybe the second one will also start to fail.
At first I thought it might be 129 providing too low a signal till I discovered it was also 119 failing which has a nice strong signal. Will 513 be out soon?:eek:

The details section has a lot more information including signal strengths of various transponders. It is interesting it only listed 110/119/129 and did not show 61.5.

Just did a quick test. My fwd now seems to be a 10 second or under skip. 3 and 5 seconds are by far the most common. Looks like it stops at the exact spot. Works for me now for time compression.

One thing that I noticed for the first time last night, was that when I did an "info" on a program. That if I pressed twice and rececived the opaque window, that there is a icon indicating which slot I'm receiving the channel from. So for HDnet it said 110. For my local HD it had a 61.5 icon.

Is this new?
