    One question that no one seems to have addressed - does the Ethernet connection allow you to access digital photo and music files on your PC network?

    I would love to be able to view my extensive collection of jpg photos on my hi def TV and listen to my mp3 files on my stereo system.

    Any specs on the optical audio port? Particularly interested in the sampling rate for the 5.1 signal.

    The Fisrt Look broke good tradition to provide inside pictures with technical details, like chipset, HDD, etc. :(

    Well given the 942 or the 622 did not contain internal pictures and the 722 is based off those receivers I am not sure what tradition it broke, but thanks for the feedback.

    The purpose of the first look reviews is to give a look from the end users point of view what functionality the box provides not what chipsets and HDD drive model the box contains etc. Most end users don't care though perhaps in the future we can get someone with more hardware background to provide a more nuts and bolts look into the receiver.

    Any volunteers from the community?

    As to your question Dr. Don, I personally have not seen such a document and this is the first time I have heard of an issue you seem to be running into.

    Can anyone tell me, please, if the 722 runs any quieter than the 622? The high pitched 24/7 whine is driving me and the GF crazy...I would upgrade in a heartbeat to get rid of that noise--I think it's the HDD, and since they've changed that to a larger one, I'm hoping it isn't so loud?

    Anyone?

    Thanks

    As you get older the high pitch whine will go away.

    My 622 can be heard, but does not have a high pitched whine, so a different unit could be quieter. Doesn't even have to be a 722, another 622 with a different HD in it, may also resolve the problem.

    My 722 is very quiet. I never even think about it.

    Also in the spirit of helpfulness...

    Are you sure you've correctly idenitified the source of the whining? ;)

    It's not so much that it's loud, but the high frequency can be heard even when music or a show or movie is playing...guess I'll try a 722--I like black better than silver anyway...

    I have two ViP622, one version, "E" the other, "F." When I first got them they were very quiet. They both make a very high pitched squealing sound (whine), very high on the audio frequency range. It is like they are haunted. The "E" version is twice as loud as the "F" version. If they get any louder, they are going to get replaced. I have no idea what is making this noise. I've tried different A/C surge protectors, different outlets, swapped cables, etc. They continue to whine! Now they are making my wife whine! :)

    Does the 722 do QAM from cable?

    They now label it HDMI and call it such in their documentation. Probably HDMI 1.1.

    That's interesting. Is it on all their HD capable receivers or just the latest 722?
