WOW, that's scary. I think the reason I don't have too many issues with my HWSs is because I keep fans on them and hardly use any features. I don't use My Favorites and My Folders. Also don't have the new CUI yet.It is a firmware issue. This has been confirmed by Scott (the owner/operator of this site). Scott said that Dish is aware of the problem and that a fix is coming 'shortly' with a new software release.
The reason not all people see the issue is because not everyone uses their receiver exactly the same way. Some people record different channels/different shows. Some people might use a different sequence of button pushes that makes the problem occur. Some people might be recording a sequence of shows that makes the problem occur. Some people might use their receiver in a way that you never would. There are a lot of reasons why some see the issue and some don't. That is why when you file a report for a software issue, they ask what was the exact sequence of events that you did that triggered the issue.
