    My 622 went into a constant reboot situation. Sometimes when I pulled the plug for 10 sec and reconnect, it would be corrected. Othertimes it would not be. I called DISH and they sent me a quick replacement receiver. However, this one does the same thing! I did find out that if I disconnect the HDMI cable (which goes into a Lumagen video processor), it would boot up fine and then I could plug the cable back in. Sometimes I have no issues at all, but this all started about a month ago. None of the other equipment has been firmware updated except the 622 which does it automatically. I've never had any issues with this setup. Any ideas?

    It seems that when I power down the Video Processor (remove AC), the 622 no longer likes that when I power back on. If I leave the VP in standby mode, it is OK. Must be it doesn't like the HDMI connection going away for whatever reason. Never had this issue before. SJ

    I'm working with Lumagen to see what they think. Seems like the 622 is no longer dropping the HDMI connection when power is removed and goes crazy into a reboot once it starts back up. Wonder if DISH changed something on the last software update. SJ

    I don't have those cables and it has always worked fine until the software update that came in March. The engineers at Lumagen are having me update my unit, but they think it is likely a Dish software bug.... SJ

    I found a couple of DVI/HDMI adaptors and will try it out... Thanks for the suggestion. SJ

    Update: Did not help. Issue still exists.
