Looks like they finally allow multiple 622's via lease. I should get my second one installed this weekend.

Funny I would have signed up a month earlier had they allowed this. It took me a month to give up on it and just get the one DVR a month later they allow me to get a second. They're so odd sometimes. :)

How much per month?

Just a straight DVR fee?

We want to get a second HD TV for the bedroom but the costs of having HD piped in was the issue.

Hmm, where's your HD Enabling Fee for that second 622? I see you have the Platinum DishHD pak, which waives the DVR fee on the second 622. But, I was told by a Dish CSR (who sounded sharp/in the know as I threw several questions at him, so I trust him) that even owned receivers (622/211, etc.) beyond the initial first one would be charged the $5-6 'enabling fee', and that you had to have the phone line plugged into the 622 at all times or you'd get hit w/ that $5 fee as well...

see this thread for hd enabling fee http://www.satelliteguys.us/showthread.php?t=59552
sounds like your csr was confused, unless you were not getting a hd package.
the phone plugged in is a different fee too and he was correct about that.
BTW -- A good thread that explains all these thing is on the stickies on the dish network forum.

Perhaps it wasn't the enabling fee per se, but an 'extra receiver' fee that applied to lease or own alike. BTW, I'm currently on the PlatinumHD Pak. It didn't sound right to me, either...seems you own, you don't pay, right? But the rules seem to change daily...

Sweet, Saturday the second vip622 was installed. I'm loving it. Now both myself and the little woman have our own records to control. :)
