    A Little help please!!!

    Ok, here it goes. June 6th had a tech come out and move my trusty vip622. In it's place I got a 722k. All worked perfect for about 5 days. Then the "Partial Signal Loss" blue screen would pop up about every 5 min. It didn't affect recording. We still got our shows on the dvr. Just the live...

    Happy Ending Final update... As mentioned by some of the wizards here... The EHD works on the 722K just as it did on the 622. Life is good. I did have to purchase the OTA module tho. But after I called and complained about the 3 different answers I got concerning the EHD, Dish is sending it...

    TonyS Thanks for the quick reply. I called back and hooked up with another tech that had it up and running in 30 sec. The kicker is that I was told I could watch ALL the archived data. I could also transfer that data back to the 722. However... if I want the 722 to archive anything, the drive...

    I just hung up with tech support and they said you lose all. I'm hesitant to plug in and watch 93 shows disappear

    That's what I thought. We plugged the hard drive into the 722k and it didn't recognize it. What did I overlook? I don't want this 722k to reformat or erase drive. I'll have to move out if that happens. I'm already catchin hell from the wife!!!!!!!!

    My big question if you guys know. Can I just plug my external hard drive from my old 622 into the 722k and see my archived shows? Installer says "no". I thought I read on here you could transfer between 622/722 on same account. We did plug it into 722k but it didn't recognize that it was...

    This was gone over in depth with this csr. It was not a quickie phone call. However...this particular csr stated that the 722 was THE ONLY leased rec. ALL 722Ks had to be purchased up front. I was told and I quote - "sir there is no way anybody can get a 722K without buying it up front". I have...

    Uh NO! I didn't misunderstand and there is no more to the story. He said the standard 722 was the dvr they leased and the 722K was a ALL UP FRONT PURCHASE ONLY. Not my first rodeo Tampa8!

    Yesterday I made an upgrade appt w/ Dish for this Monday. Thru chat I requested twice that I wanted a VIP722K (along with Sling Adapter). Not a standard 722. Chat took the order and my $$$. My email confirmation just came in showing 722. I just called them and csr says the 722 is a lease item...

    A little help please!

    Thanks Don That VIP722 dvr comes standard with the ability to record 1 OTA signal. The Vip722K has an additional OTA module so you can record 2 OTA channels at the same time as well as 2 Dish channels. I guess I'll just try a couple of cheapo splitters first.

    A little help please!

    Thanks Don_M Ok... So DON'T worry about splitting the cable outside? Just split prior to the 622 and fresh run to 722K. Now the 722K will have 2 OTA inputs. Use a splitter again there? Is there a difference in splitters?

    A little help please!

    I have a Antennacraft C290 hooked to a VIP 622. I would like to add a VIP722K in another room to my C290. Signal strength is very good on 2 of the network stations and "just ok" on the other 2 we care about. What do I need to: 1) split the C290 outside. 2) Amplify the signal (don't know if...
