On the H3, when you delete a single episode recording from the DVR screen, it then exits the DVR screen. Didn't it used to stay on the DVR screen, even if there were no episodes left for that show, or am I misremembering this?

Mine deletes the icon for the program I just deleted. But it goes back to the DVR menu these days.

My H3 has rebooted several times over the past few days. Is this a bug with the new software? I would be watching and the tv screen would go black and then up pops the H3 start up notice.

Were you watching or recording any OTA channels at the time? This has happened to some other members here with OTA on their Hoppers.

So i was watching Netflix threw my 4k joey, which normal dont do but cause Roku 9.4.0 is causing issue with picture setting reseting, among other thing I just watch threw joey, upon exited Netflix I was greated by Scrambled image sound pop and random. Thought it was nother issue with 9.4.0 roku update so i switch input to see what happen came back dish input and screen was still scrambled and pop at random, I pulled the power on joey and restarted it picture came back.

Is this something new with netflix with joey or always been an issue?

IIRC Netflix software is written by Netflix and supplied to Dish. Not much reason for Netflix to fix the software when it potentially can reduce their direct income.

It doesn’t affect their direct income at all. I don’t sub to Netflix through DISH. My payment goes directly to Netflix. I can just access that sub on my Hopper if I choose.

Uh, but the issue being discussed here is how the Dish receiver acts immediately after exiting the Netflix app. That is entirely on Dish to fix.

Here's an event I haven't seen before. My H3, which has been running reasonably well since getting U936, suddenly crashed (~9:30AM) while I was watching a 3-hr recording from the internal disk. First it did a system check, then it did an EHD check which warned me of lasting up to 100 minutes :eeek but only took about 1 minute, and then it rebooted and appears to be fine again. :confused:

Same here, about 5 minutes ago. Was watching a 4K Joey, got broadband connection lost msg. Went to the Hopper and it said it was doing an EHD check, and it then rebooted. Back now. Maybe Dish is clandestinely running DRM checks on our EHDs, in case somebody has an extra hidden partition of LImewired movies on there. :cool:

I used to see that EHD check every night on my Wally (when I was still using a Wally) at the scheduled time for the nightly reset. The funny thing was that it always warned me of lasting "up to 0 minutes" which never did make any sense to me. How could it possibly take less than zero minutes?
