I have a Mitsubishi WS-65807 I am wanting to upgrade to Dish's HD reciever and start recieving HD. I have recieved several storys about what is needed. I have been told I just need to get DISH'S HD reciever and get it activated and my TV will play it others have told me I need a sepreate reciever for my TV to brodcast the signal (I have also recieved both answers from dish)
On the front of my TV it says HD 1080 on the back panel I have what they call a "High Resolution Input"

Labeled
DTV (YPrPb/GRGHV)
480i/480p/1080i

Does anyone know for sure the answer. I dont want to order the reciever and not be able to recieve the HD programing

Please help I feel real stupid

The 722/622 has a built-in TV tuner to get your local HD/Digital over the air channels with an antenna. This receiver also has two HD/SD satellite tuners which can be used to feed two TVs independently.

The outputs available on the 722/622 (all work simultaneously)

TV1
--------------------
HDMI/DVI (HD)

Component (Y-Pb-Pr -- Essentially "green, blue, red") (HD)

S-Video (SD, highest quality) --Anamorphic 4x3 available which stretches to standard 16x9

Composite (SD Good Quality) ("Yellow" cable connection) --Anamorphic 4x3 available which stretches to standard 16x9

*RF (SD, fair quality but easily distributable to the whole house) --Anamorphic 4x3 available which stretches to standard 16x9


TV 2 OUT
(4x3 with sides cut off or 4x3 letterbox on HD channels, no Anamorphic available... GRRRRRR)
------------------------
S-Video (SD Best quality)
Composite (SD Good quality)
*RF (SD reasonable quality, easily distributed to the whole house along with TV 1)


The RF out can be set to just about any UHF standard TV channel but TV1 and TV2 outputs cannot be on adjacent channel numbers.

See ya

Component cables Y-Pb-Pr cable and a red/white audio stereo cable. All are cheap at monoprice.com

And if the installer pushes it, you dont really need HDMI to get the best picture from a Dish DVR. Subjective opinion I know but alot of people say it.

I have heard otherwise about DVD players and that HDMI in that case does make a difference. But I dont have one that has that kind of output.

Yes, if it is an upscaling DVD player.

I wounder if the confusion in the responses revolves around HD locals. If you are in an area where no HD locals are provided over dish you will need an antenna feed going into a tuner that will handle this for you. If you are in an area wher HD locals are avaialble over the SAT then you will not.

my 622 came with component cables. the installer said they were better than HDMI. I had to laugh at him.
