I've got the 1.04.00 firmware on my SAT-520 ( purchased August 2003 ) - however there are still a couple of 'bugs' -
Occasionally the box will not receive any DirectTV channels until I physically unplug the power to reset it. This happens quite often to be very annoying.
If I toggle digital Input between Cable or HD, the slots available on the SURF for OTA channels gets cleared and will not accept any new OTA assigments until the box is cold reset via the power plug.
Occasionaly I lose the audio on channel (esp on Discovery HD Theater), and I can get it back by flipping to another channel and back.
The box has cold-reset itself once in the middle of a movie. You have to wait for it to scan channels etc.
The box continues to forget all deleted channels when you cold reset it ( the surf assigments, however, are ok )
Any idea if these are firmware related and can be fixed?
