    The TV2 output for coax quit working tonight. It is the wife's TV! She was watching a program and suddenly, the tv displays random snow and a message from the tv saying "weak or no signal". It is not a message from the STB. There is no Dish logo on the screen. I brought the TV to the receiver in the other bedroom and hooked it direct to the STB with coax and still no joy. I connected the TV with component cables and I got a picture and sound. I am guessing that the circuitry to the coax output went bad. This 622 is pretty old IIRC. We both work during the day. She is home about 5:30 pm most days. My job is totally unpredictible. I have no idea from day to day what time we start and how long we will work. For instance, I started work at 4:30 am today and was sent home due to rain at 6:30 am. Tomorrow, I start at 5:30 am and will probably have to work in excess of 12 hours.

    Did you use the same cable that is normally connected to that TV? If so, try a different cable. I just want to rule out the possibility of it being the cable.

    If you did use a different cable, then it looks like you need a new receiver.

    I did try another coax. I was also thinking it is time for a replacement.
    I have accumulated three HD TV's, so I am considering a Hopper / Joey setup, but they won't allow me to keep my 211 receiver with that setup. I have a 1tb hard drive that has about 3 years of recordings which can't be transferred.

    You can have a 211 on a Hopper account it must be an owned 211 if you are leasing the one you have now you will need to buy one. As a workaround for the bedroom you can connect a modulator to the composite outputs and connect the modulator to the coax going to that room. The TV will be on CH3 or 4 and can cost less than $10 if you are a good shopper.
