Had dish installed a few weeks ago. I have 722 and 222. On the 222, the video stutters pretty bad on the standard def channels. No sound problem just the video. I see it once in a while on the HD channels, but no where near as bad as on the standard def. It happens on T.V. 1 (HD), and T.V.2 (SD). I found an older thread on this, but the last thing posted was an update seemed to help a little, but then the thread went dead.
All of my connections are tight, and I even swapped the boxes out, and the 222 did the stuttering where the 722 is hooked up, and the 722 was fine where the 222 is hooked up, so I think the problem is with the box.
Any suggestions on a fix?

Gave Dish a call, and they are sending a tech out to take a look. Was hoping to have them just send a new receiver.

Got a new 222k box. It works fine now. The tech had one left on the truck. After he activated it, and called his office, he found out that he wasn't supposed to swap out a 222 for a 222k. He did say though that the 222k was what they are using for the eastern arc installs, which is what I have, so I made out great. Of course he left the 222k. His office is over an hour away.
The box is all black, and the remote is a little different. Other than that, I am not sure what the difference is.

2 OTA tuners in a removable module. Or ZERO if the module isn't there.

Great swap-out. The 222k is a lot better and more stable than the older 222 in my experience.
