Would you be willing to swap receivers with me? I just downloaded the newest update, but hate the fact that I have to switch the stretch mode every time I watch an HD channel. Mine is in mint condition.
I have not downloaded the new s/w. Currently, whenever I change OTA channels between 1080i & 720p, it looks as if I'm looking through a screen door where the screen has been painted a bright green. This effect covers from 1/3 to all of the screen and may last one or 2 seconds. I have been eager to see whether a new download fixes it, but unwilling to go ahead until I see more feedback from others. Did you have this particular symptom? Did the d/l fix it?
I have a 6000 and noticed the green tiling/blocking before and after the new S/W download. This does happen mostly when tuning onto or away from my ABC station so it sounds like the same problem to me.
I don't think mine has taken the update. I will have to check when I get home to be sure that the family didn't try to watch something and hit anything to take the update. I may be willing to swap. BTW, what kind of additional receiver are you talking about? I will let you know what I find out when I get home.
Paul, ok you know how to check your software version, right? Under "System Info". If you have the old software version, could you please enable the option that reads something like "Do NOT allow upgrades without my permission". Then, with that option checked, manually turn the reciever off to make sure it doesn't automatically download the upgrade. Also, I'd like to know if anything happens if it indeed does NOT download the upgrade, like notify you that there is an upgrade available. Basically, I want to be sure it doesn't force the upgrade. Thanks a bunch, Paul!
