Best Viable Option--Replacing 722k for two DVR's?
I currently have a 722k in my front room and I have added another HDTV in the kids' room so now I want HD in their room which previously was shared wit the 722k as #2 (SD). I was looking at a pair of 612's but Dish wants too much for HD fees p/mo, yada, yada. What is the best and most economical option in this case?
Currently I am on W.A. with a 1000.2 (119, 110, 129) and have just two receivers-a 222k and a 722k.
Thanx for the help,

Keep the 722k

Fair warning, the 612 does not have a good reliability reputation.

Total monthly fees, 722 $6 (DVR fee), 211k $7.00. Up front costs should you need to record/view HD recording's on the 211k, $40 for 211k EHD activation plus whatever an external hard drive costs, probably around $60-80. You will not be able to transfer/watch HD recordings in HD between these receivers.

... you say "added another HDTV in the kids' room" which implies one DVR...
... and then you say " I was looking at a pair of 612's"... which implies two DVRs as does the title.
Are you saying you would get rid of the 722k ?
Note that if you replace a 722k with a 612, the monthly cost is the same, so there is no point to going to that trouble. This is because there is no charge for the first receiver on the account.
As mentioned above by others, the lowest monthly fee in the long run is to keep your 722k, and then get a 211k which supports one TV with HD, and adds DVR functions for no extra monthly cost with a one-time activation fee of $40 and the cost of a USB external hard drive (if you ever return the 211k, you can still keep the hard drive and use it for your PC, etc.).In San Francisco Bay ! - Louis Vuitton Cup: 04 July – 1 September 2013 ; America’s Cup Match (Finals): 7-22 September 2013

Please remember "Lose" implies 'Loss', "Loose" does not.
