Has anyone noticed issues with the OpenTV functionality in the L162 software? I know a lot of the features haven't been activated yet, but I've noticed that some of the features that were working, such as the instant weather, seem to have stopped working. I've tried rebooting the box, but it hasn't helped.

things 522 customers pay for but aren't getting

You are right. When we upgraded to 162 software some of the open TV selections were deactivated.

Here is a complete list of things that 522 customers are paying for that don't work.

Remote control menus

1. Main menu/customer support(ironic isn't it)
2. Main menu/system setup/shared view We hope Dish eventually releases shared view PIP function don't we?

Open TV-Dish Home.

All functions for Dish Home work with 301 receivers.

Things that work
1.News and Weather/Reuters
2.New and Weather/Horoscope
3.Entertainment/TV magazine
4.Sports/My Scores
5.Sports/Soccer

Things that are inactive.
1.Dish home/customer support/paybill
2.Dish home/customer support/FAQs all kind of ironic huh!
3.Dish Home/customer support add programming
4."/News and Weather/instant weather
5."/News and Weather/Bloomberg
6."/Games/Playin
7."/Games/Kidwise
8."/Games/playjam
9."/Games/trivia
10."/entertainment/showtime
11."/entertainment/Zap2it
12."/Sports/college hoops
13."/pay per view

So--70% of Dish Home on a 522 doesn't work.

Maybe with the next software upgrade they can make more things not work. :rolleyes:
cheers.

To me, OpenTV is just window dressing anyway. I Rarely even check it out unless I can't find anything on the other 200 channels to watch.

If removing OpenTV would give me more PVR space on the hard drive.... Get rid of it in an instant. :D
