Guess what the #1 hardware failure is with computers? Hard Drives. Always will be.
BuddyBoy said:Also consider 1) the duty cycle as well as 2) the operating temperature assumed when coming up with that MTBF figure.
The reality is, those of us with multiple TB arrays (20+ hard drives) for archiving HDTV experience regular drive failures unless you take steps to address the two items I listed above.
If you assume a symmetric bell-shaped curve so that the mean and median are approx. the same, a five year MTBF and twenty hard drives means that you'd expect ten hard drive failures in five years. That's significant.
Kaydigi said:Can the 622 do 2 SAT HD feeds in?
Example recording HD Game on ESPN, and recording something on HD Starz at the same time?
Or is it just 1 HD Sat Tuner, 1 SD Tuner, and 1 OTA Tuner?
EvilEuro said:Yes, the 622 can do 2 HD recordings at once. Actually, the 622 can do THREE HD feeds at once, which I've done on several occasions, using both of the 622's satellite tuners while also recording an OTA hi-def feed.
So yes, your example above is definitely doable.
I don't understand the hype over the 612 if the 622 does the same thing in single mode.
I read through the first 10 pages and didn't see an answer to this so...Scott Greczkowski said:So are you saying I'd be smart to wait to sign up for DishHD on July 1st?
Only if you are a new Dish Network customer
I thought on the Charlie Chat it was shown that you can upgrade your 942 to a 622 for $200 less ten months credit at $10/month less $100 when they get the 942 back.RobertsD said:I read through the first 10 pages and didn't see an answer to this so...
So new customers get these great deals on the DishHD packs, but if I were to upgrade from my 942 to a leased 622, and sign up for one of the DishHD packs I wouldn't get the same deal? ...
