There is certainly a huge discussion on this obnoxious fee somewhere around here.
The difference in this FEE is that you can REMOVE it if you want to . Unlike most DISH fees, where you can't escape them.
You lose recording in the Search.
You lose the ability to set a timer from Revue Menus
You can still search and set the DVR the same as with the original remote.
With integration you cannot customize the Dish commands on the controller when you un integrate it you regain this function.
I had it and played with it briefly I don't see that it is worth $4 a month
Hi, do we need to have a dish DVR service to use this? I ran through a few posts, saw some info, but wanted to be clear.
I have a VIP222K. any thoughts?
The last page of the promo brochure says "Available with compatible DISH Network receiver models only (VIP 622, 722 and 722k)", so it looks like it either can't be used, or isn't being offered by DISH with the discounted price for VIP222's.
The discount is almost irrelevant, with tigerdirect selling the same for 210 to 220$ and no monthly charge (4$ with dish). EVen costco sells it for 230$.
The product details says that it works with all settop boxes and satellite receivers, it might not be able to use the DVR features of dish, but would want to confirm that it will work fine with my 222k without dish's intervention or monthly charge (If i buy from amazon/costco/tigerdirect).
There's still a $30-$50 differential between those prices and the DISH discount offer at $179, and I was told in an earlier post on this thread that you can cancel the $4 monthly subscription with minimal loss of integration, so it could still be relevant for anyone on a budget. I don't doubt that it will actually work fine on your 222k, but will leave that to someone who actually knows. Good luck.
