I noticed late last night that I was getting no sat found messages on some channels, and not subscribed on other channels. We were in the middle of a snow storm so I just figured it was snow on the dish and just switched to watching recorded programs.
This morning I see a new message waiting icon on the screen, read the message, and it said that I needed to recreate all my recording events. I checked the firmware, it is 0915. The messages last night about some channels not being subscribed leads me to think it got the update last night. Why would it erase all my recording events? I generally have over a hundred events set up. Given that there is a storage device within the receiver, why don't they backup the recording events onto the hard drive, and restore it after clearing the events off with the update? Even if they are altering the structure of the record events, they could just convert the existing data to the new format. The amount of data is very small in relation to a recorded half hour show. It would take a programmer less time to create a simple applet to do this than it takes for me to have recreate the list of record events.
I hope this update fixes the daily lockups I have been getting.
