    Right now we have a VIP622 feeding our main TV (52" HDTV) and bedroom TV (40" HDTV) on the 2nd tuner. What I want is HD on the bedroom TV. Should I get an additional receiver, like a VIP 211k and hook it to the bedroom TV? The 2nd tuner output of the VIP622 could then be directed to the...

    622 and HDMI flicker problem....

    My 622 via HDMI has been fine for a year now. Last night our power went out. Now the picture flickers every 2 seconds. I have tried hard reboot, soft reboot, reset HDMI and everything else I can think of. The picture shows up fine, but flickers and will not stop. Any suggestions?

    Question about the $100 Back HD offer....

    I upgraded to HD Platinum recently. The form for the $100 rebate ($10 off your bill for 10 months) says to send a copy of your 1st month's billing statement. I have been checking online, and there is no statement since I have no balance (because of the 942 trade-in rebate). How will I...

    VIP622 remote question....

    I have a VIP622 and the remote is a 5.3 IR. I am having a problem with it controlling my new Harman/Kardon AVR240 receiver. The remote accepts the 3 codes in the Dish manual. But the remote will only turn the H/K receiver ON, it will not turn it OFF. Has anyone else had this problem and...

    "Original Air Date" in VIP622 guide info....

    Will Dish add the "Original Air Date" to the guide info of the VIP622? I just swapped out my 942 which had this feature. Surprised to see that the VIP622 doesn't have this.

    942 removed, 622 installed, now no OTA HD??

    I had a 942 and all my HD locals OTA were in the 90+ signal strength range (35-40 miles from Atlanta). I had ABC, FOX, CBS, NBC, TBS, WB and UPN. My 622 was just installed, and it will only pick up 3 HD channels OTA and they are in the 50-60 strength range. Is this a problem with the 622's...

    Question about upgrade from 942 to VIP622...

    I want to upgrade from the 942 (leased) to the 622, primarily for ESPN2 HD, UHD and any new HD channels that are added. I pick up the Atlanta locals OTA, so that is not as important (although it would allow me to record 2-3 HD locals simultaneously). I have a Dish 500 pointed at 110/119 and...

    What resolution will the HD locals be in?

    I see that Dish will have Atlanta HD locals in Jan. 2006. Does anyone know what resolution they will be? I can pick up the HD locals OTA, but would like to be antenna-free. Will the PQ be comparable with Dish or should I stay with the antenna?

    Buying an HDTV soon, what should I do re: E*?

    I have been an E* customer for 2.5 years. After my 1 year commitment, I extended for 2 years to obtain the 510 for free. Right now I have the 510 and a 301. I plan to purchase an HDTV early in 2005. I'm wondering what I should do for an HD E* receiver. The 921 is at a decent price now...
