I was just wondering if someone could tell me if the dishnetwork vip 622 receiver had an analog off air tuner. It says ATSC/Cable on the description. I have seen two different things online. I figure someone here could tell me for sure.

Thanks

Yes. To set it up, Menue-6-8, analog type-off air

so I can get some NTSC off air channels. What I want to be able to do is play out some of my saved video clips from my 522 to a 622 when I upgrade. I figure if it has an NTSC off air tuner I can feed it from the second tv on the 522.

I have a young child who saves video clips, she basically expects them to be there, she has never experienced tv without a dvr.

Has Digital Tuner but no Analog Tuner

The 622 has a digital tuner which will tune any of the digital stations but it does not have an analog tuner.

You can't feed from receiver to receiver but you can from the 522 to your TV. Your TV should have an NTSC tuner.

I a m not sure why that is in the menu. Perhaps at one time they planned for an analog tuner.

Join the DishRip or Dishmod groups at Yahoo and you'll find all the info you need to get those recordings off the 522. I had to do the same thing for all of my daughter's recordings, so I know what you're going through.

I have been there, but the fact that my 522 is leased, is keeping me from opening it up. I dont really want to get stuck paying for the thing.
