Yep, found that the hard way!
You would think they'd test an update properly before rolling it out to you with no choice!
Also - how many people without the net are wondering why their recordings now have no sound...and go buy a new box? (Or pay someone to 'fix' it!)

yeah I found that a couple days back.  I checked all my connections and checked all tv settings thinking I must have accidently changed it. Then went through the settings on thedish unit and tried different settings. When sound came back after changing compression setting I left it alone. Thought must be a fault develloping in unit.

Left it on last night to do update and had no sound this morning. Followed your instructions and sound is back.

Why don't they just release another update with the correct setting for uncompressed sound?

Thanks again.
