I think the high numbers are just that, anew scale but the same signal quality. I don't use the sat much but when I did the xku lnb did nothing for our pixellation/glitching.

I still have problems

1) SPONTANEOUS REBOOTS- sometimes several in 1 hour. 2)VERY SLOW TO RESPOND TO COMMANDS-sometimes 20 to 30 or more seconds to respond. 3)PIXELATING- usually happens when recording something. 4) LOOSE VIDEO AND AUDIO- does not happen very often, but when it does I can get it back by changing off the channel and the back on. 5)SOMETIMES CAN NOT STOP RECORDING-sometimes it will stop at the end of the recording, sometimes not. Have to do FP reboot to fix. 6) SOMETIMES RECORD LIGHT ON BUT NOTHING BEING SHOWN AS BEING RECORDED ON LIST. Light stays on forever until I do a FP reboot. 7)SOMETIMES SAYS MANUAL RECORDING INSTEAD OF THE PROGRAM NAME FOR RECORDED PROGRAMS- FP reboot usually fixes it. 8) SOMETIMES GUIDE SHOWS NO DATA FOR ALL CHANNELS- FP reboot usually fixes it. 9)SOMETIMES CAN NOT PAUSE, BACKUP, FF, ON LIVE AND RECORDED PROGRAMS- FP reboot usually fixes it. 2 and a half years and still these 630s not right. Spending over $130 a month now on programming. Maybe it is time to call telus.

All the signs of the 630 death spiral, call to get the box replaced.

Even if you cancel and go to Telus, you'll want a working box so you can sell it.

09.22 was downloaded onto one of my 600's last night (took over 35 minutes). I've not checked the other 600, but the 630 has not yet been downloaded or targeted. Anyone know what this version is supposed to fix? It can't be much as it's only a point release. I checked the guide and menu options and the only new items were the move notices for the audio / radio channels. Everything else is the same.

I was told last week or so that staff were testing the new HD guide, but that seems not to be part of this.

Found this information on another site:

Starting on May 16th (for HDPVR 630 units) and May 18 (for HDDSR 600/605 units), Shaw Direct will be deploying software version 09.22. Once targeted (as seen on line I in OPTIONS 4-7), your receiver will automatically update at around 2:10AM local time. It is not possible to force the update if you have not been targeted.

The overall look and feel is unchanged with this download.

This release provides increased VOD speeds, significant PPV enhancements, and improved stability. Prior to 09.22, the last software download was 9.1512.

Sometime yesterday something happened and my 630 lost all timers.
I dont know what happened but they were wiped.
Granted I probably had too many (over 100) and needed a cleanup but this is very inconvenient.

My other 600 was targeted for Tuesday night but I did a manual download on Monday evening (not sure of the length of it as I was doing other things and didn't pay attention). My 630 hasn't been targeted as of this morning. I do hope the HD guide arrives sooner rather than later though!

One thing I have noticed is that since the download I am getting re-boots constantly! Had the tech out and the signal is great. He indicated that I should call for a new receiver again!
Reading this thread tells me that it is not the receiver as many are having this re-boot problem. I am on my last leg with SD and will soon be pulling the plug and going back to BEV. They are offering me a free HD PVR as well as a second HD receiver that I can make a PVR by adding an external HD. Also free installation and they have more HD channels than SD by far. Also programming is cheaper for what I am currently getting.

One more month will tell the tale.
