Anyone have any info on the dual tuner receiver, to replace 322?
...and for the nine-day program guide, which still works even without DVR functionality. I am speaking from experience. Dish accidentally did this to my working ViP722k. Somehow, either they fixed the mistake, or I got the DVR functionality working again by re-setting the receiver. (short version. I posted the specific steps I took, in another thread.) I transferred all of the recordings to an external hard drive as soon as I could, and I just transferred them over to the internal hard drive of my Hopper Duo.The only way it would make sense is DISH leaving the hard drive in place so at some point in the future DISH could reactivate it..
As far as I know, Dish is no longer installing 222's, and existing subscribers with 222's would get one of the DVR-disabled 722's as a replacement if the old 222 dies. However, Dish may be calling the modified 722's "222's". I am not sure about that part.Last week, before we told Dish we were moving to the Hopper, they told us they wanted to replace our 322 with a 222.
Remember?? I installed a bunch of them. 512 was the worst. After it downloaded, it would reboot while acquiring signal 3 times, then the program guide took forever. I was never happier when they pulled those of our vans.
Remember them? I still have two of them! (deactivated) They are great for recording free preview channels in standard-def, plus they have PIP and a two-hour buffer!
Single output, not tuner. 512's are still dual-tuner.512 was 522 turned single tuner, 311k was a 322 turned single tuner
How about a 229, since the hard drive still works for the 9-day program guide?Is it called a 222z? Lol.
Yeah, but who calls it that?The numbers all mean something. The first is the series, the second is the number of TVs served and the third is the number of tuners. The first Hopper is the XiP 813.
