I'm about to move to Iowa, and I am switching from DirectTV to Dish. I have had DirectTV since 1995, but they do not carry the locals in my area (hour north of Sioux City) and, while I can get OTA, it's a bit spotty - and I just want the options of the locals via satellite. So - a couple of questions: Is the 722 the HDDVR to request as I negotiate with DISH on the switch/move? I'll be wanting the "best" HDDVR for my den and the same for my bedroom - perhaps eventually another for my basement. Is the 722 the HDDVR to ask for? I thought they had come out with a newer one? I've had the higher end Total Choice package from DirectTV - I'm looking at the Gold 250 plus HD and locals - anything else I should know as a Dish newbie when I call them and try to see what I can negotiate to get a 15 year DirectTV customer to switch to Dish? With DirectTV, whenever I moved, the trick was to call a certain phone number for a customer retention specialist and they would give me the world to stay with them. I had another question - but need more coffee and forgot it, LOL! - EDIT - Oh, remembered - do I have to have the receivers/DVRs connected to a phone? Thanks for the help.
