You are right . I finally did some research...when the Ks first started showing up in warehouse inventory the FSM told us the Ks didn't have OTA modules, and I never heard they were returned to OEM
I have never had any customer request the OTA ant connected to a 722K, so there you are.
I looked and there sure enough is an ant in on the 722K.
I think the OTA module add on is cool, dual tuner OTA and 4-channel recording...since there are 2-4 different versions of all OTAs here, having multiple channels of Digital and HD locals is a plus.

The 722Ks don't have an OTA in unless the OTA module is installed. Maybe you are referring to the RF antenna in for the remote. I specifically ordered an 722K with the OTA module and the installer hooked it up, after calling the shop to bring it (OTA module) out because he didn't have it on his truck. Seemed surprised about me getting one like he hadn't installed many. Seems Dish doesn't make a point of it as a feature.

Just get the hopper and connect your ota directly to the back of your tv not to hard to switch inputs on your tv to view the ota then back to the dish. Not all 722k's are like this I've installed hundreds of these receivers and have seen 1 or 2 that have had freezing issues, have seen it with other VIPs as well 222's 612's and 211's there are many other issues that could cause your receiver to freeze as well bad cable, lnb, bad pwr outlets seen many hot/neutral/reverses cause that issue. Freezing with the on demand could also depend on how its connected to your internet whether its direct connected or via Sling Link (not to be confused with sling adapter) if sling link is plugged into a pwr strip or receiver is plugged into a pwr strip the connection will not work properly. I have seen know issues with the internet connection primarily on 722's utilizing the WI-FI adapters but have not heard anything as to why this may be.

And the hopper system by the way is like going from a VW to a Ferrari LOL. Like it already and we've only just started installing them.
