    The quality of HD channels?

    wcnghj, you will notice the biggest difference between 720p and 1080i during live sporting events. Outside of that, not so much. Has your 722 been upgraded to mpeg4? Quickest way to check is, does it have a card in the left panel? If not, call dish and get one. Mpeg4 PQ is outstanding.

    Set DVR to record New Episodes, but still records old epsisodes sometimes.

    Garbage in, garbage out. If you have a habitual offender, you may want to manually delete (skip) programming from the Timers menu.

    If you have a modem you can use one of the many free call blocking programs available. Used to use one named PhoneTray. When telemarketers called, they were greeted with the three tones of a disconnected phone. Many VOIPs have call blockers, too.

    The answer is maybe. Some USB sticks work, some don't. Had an RJ45 WAP that was flaky. Replaced it with a TrendNet 642 gaming adapter. After upgrading the firmware it has been bullet proof, while the new software is flaky. You can find them online for $30 delivered. Maybe not today, but at...

    besides red zone, what is the point of the sports pack?

    You might be able to catch post game shows that are often scheduled before the games conclusion. Other than that, Redzone is the only saving grace. For Hockey fans, Sports Pack is $120 a year - Center Ice is only about $20 more.
