good post...just want to add a couple of things to the list...I used both these
1. manual timers have been removed
2. 1/4 slow play speed has been removed
Sorry to see that so many others are in the same predicament. Been with Dish a long time...but strongly considering swithcing after this fiasco!
To do a partial reset, press the Sys Info button on the front of the box and go to Tools > Reset To Factory Defaults > Partial Reset. This will reset all files except for the DVR/Timer settings. Please be sure not to do a Master Reset accidentally -- this will clear your DVR and timers!
I experience the same issues, and the DVR recordings no longer have names on them, and the now have a thin blue line to indicate your selection... you can't see it.
kfagan42, I hate to hear you are having this issues. I just have a few clarification questions. Have you tried to reset the Hopper from the power outlet for 15 seconds and plug back in?
I'm having the same problems, ever since their big upgrade! Also the text labels are gone from the recordings in the Hopper, and now there's a imperceptible blue line around the selection! Maybe time to upgrade the box.

I looked but haven't found a thread on this so here are my concerns/questions.
Ever since the big update with the different menus, screens, etc. everything is very slow.
For example: when I go into recordings, it takes forever for all the recordings to load. It didn't do this before the update. There are several things that take too long to load but by far the biggest thing is when you first turn on the TV and the Hopper is in standby, it takes a while to "resume session". I used to just hit select (or any button) and the programming would come on. Now I have to wait several seconds to even a minute.
Another problem I found was when trying to watch a recorded show. Sometimes the screen will just go black when I hit either start over or resume. I then have to exit DVR, then go back into it, then try the recording again. Usually it will play the second time, although it has taken multiple attempts to get a recording to play.
Is there a known problem with the update or do I need to change some settings?
BTW, I have 2 Hoppers and 2 Joeys and they all are slow after the update.
