CH 21-69 Out (TV2) tip
I just recently replaced my Directv with Dish. When the installer was trying to get my TV2 connected he couldn't get a clear picture and blamed it on the TV. He said the TV had to be tuned to ch.60 or ch.116 and my TV doesn't go up to 116. (it's an older TV). So he left with a wavy picture on ch.60 and left me thinking I'd have to replace my TV if I want it to work properly.
Upon doing some of my own research, I found that the channel you choose has to be display nothing but noise (snowy picture). My channel 60 was picking up a Spanish station even with NO antennae connected. I was able to get a clearer picture on almost every other channel between 21 and 69, but it still wasn't as good as I would have liked it. What I WAS able to do however is to use my VCR as the tuner (tune it to the channel you select in the the Setup RF Modulator menu)and tune the TV to ch.3. Now the picture comes in excellent. It's a little more of a pain because now I not only have to control the TV and Satellite receiver, but also the VCR power & tv/video. Fortunately the remote with the receiver is able to control all three and I was able to get rid of the TV remote. Better than having to go out and buy a new TV!!
Hopefully this is helpful to someone else as well.

Good tip TMaud. It sounds like your older TV's tuner just has seen its better days.

And I'll add that it's a shame the installer didn't want to (or worse, know how to) set the TV2 output to another channel. I'm not too surprised, but it's still a shame.
And I don't know if anyone else has extended a welcome to you here, but anyways, welcome to SatelliteGuys.us!

The 522 is a nice box too. I just hope that future updates can take care of those annoying a/v issues when using the DVR.
