I'm not sure how you'd arrange that other than buying a 722k. Does Dish differentiate between the 622, 722, and 722k, when it comes to 'swaps' ?
No. They are all 622/722 family. That's how they label it. Unless the customer buys a sling adapter with it.

Yes, the 722k is available. For a NEW customer, I'm sure they'd get one if they refused a Hopper, but with existing customers, just "replacing" one, I don't know if it's guaranteed.

If you do it and they ship a 622 or 722, I'd put the return label on the "new" receiver and send it back.

Again, they can do a dish n up and request sling adapter at the same time, and they will get a 722 or k. Otherwise, there is no guarantee.

I'll log into my account and see what my upgrade options are or chat with a CSR if need be and see what they say if I can't figure it out myself and then post my findings here...after this afternoon's game. :)

Chatted tonight...seems I need to buy a receiver from a local retailer and Dish will then activate it on my account. That being the case, I'll talk with the retailer in town tomorrow that deals in Dish products and see what they charge for a 722k...

Pointed where ? You're probably set up fine but I suspect Dish's preference is (1) dish vs multiple.
One is pointed at 110/119 and the other at 129 (had the 2nd dish added when the old sat at 129 developed a wobble and would lose signal entirely on the low end of the cycle). I prefer this setup as I get an amazing signal from the current 129 sat...

Figured as much...been this way for quite some time...now if the local retailer would just return my call...if they don't, I'll find someplace else to get my 722k. My $$$ must be worth something to someone, somewhere?
