I tried deleting it ... don't have that option ... perhaps because there are already replies? Sorry ... here is my post:

So last night I turned my 722 "off" around 9PM. Abound 20 minutes later it gets really loud for a minute and then gets quiet again. I thought that was odd ... never did that before ... did some sort of update get pushed? Off to SatelliteGuys and sure enough they report that L618 got pushed to more receivers.

So, I turn the receiver on, and sure enough L618.

I immediate go to my recordings of The Beast in 1080p that I have downloaded prior and play episode 107 that I had downloaded using L617 ... sadly 1080i :(

So I delete episode 106 that I still had and download it again ... hmmm ... it is different this time ... I am usually always prompted to the effect ... your TV might not work with 1080p, so you might be downloaded a version that will work for your TV ... again, no such prompt this time ...

My 722 is set to do its normal reboot at 5:30AM ... at 7AM I check to see if my download had completed ... surprise, surprise ... it was done! :eek:

I go to my download and hit play ...

... drum roll ...

IT WORKED!

:bounce

Another interesting thing I noticed ... I went to play episode 107 that I had downloaded using L617 as noted above ... it even played in 1080p! I am not sure why it did not work last night however when I tried it. The only thing that I can think of is that my 722 did its morning reboot thing ...

There were rumors that L618 fixed some 1080p issues ... I can confirm this. :up

L618 rolled out to a large percent of 622/722s, including one of mine. Any one see any changes or no of any fixes in it?

I just got L618 2 days ago for my 722 and it looks like it has fixed my recordings of sat locals. I watched a show recorded 2 weeks ago that has been having audio and video problems. 2 shows that normally have the problem did not have any problem at all. i hope this new software really has fixed this problem. I will find out soon.

I see that L603 on a VIP612 crashes 100% of the time when you hit the Info button when highlighting a receiver number in the DishCOMM diagnostic screen. Obviously not an important bug, but it would be nice to be able to get info e.g. to figure out which receivers have been detected.

Getting tired of L618 on ViP622/ViP722, any signs of something new on the way? I am still getting poked in the ribs every morning 'cause the autotune doesn't.

by the way, this thread DOES need to be a sticky, took forever to find it again.

I recall from couple weeks ago there was FW after-L618 version spooling.
