I hope the "Misc Under the Hood Fixes" for the 622 will correct the loss of video problem!

What exactly does "WiFi" mean for the 922? Also noticed that the 722 got Sling adapter support... What about Sling extender support for the 922?

Is the 612 a typo on the home page and tweet? I do not see it listed in the post.

Sorry... I corrected it above. :) I put 622 instead of 612.

The 612 software update is scheduled to start going out on Thursday.

Dang! I guess I'll have to live with the loss of video problem on the 622 for a while.

"Sling Adapter full support"

Does this mean the multi room extender and HD on TV2 may actually be in the near future as apposed to "coming soon" as it has been for the last year

No this is the device you plug into your ViP DVR's USB port and it gives that receiver Sling functionality. It turns you receiver into a Slingbox with one wire.

I received S109 on my 922. In the broadband setup there is an icon for "sync DB". Not sure what is for, when I select it, nothing happens. Hopefully this is for Googletv. There is also an icon for "USB wireless ". Transfer from 922 to external HDD is working. That is all that I have found new.
