    For those of us that hope to continue using the DISH 722k receiver, will DISH continue to support it for quite a while yet or is an end of life anticipated any time soon?

    The 622/722/722K still meets all the requirements needed to receive DISH signals. It doesn't have the glamorous advertising campaign the Hopper is experiencing but it still does everything it did when you bought it. Enjoy it and save your upgrade money.

    I am a big fan of the 722K and its ability to provide two independent RF modulated outputs to your whole home without STB fees. I also like being able to record up to 4 programs at once (2 satellite and 2 OTA) with the OTA module and watch from a computer or iPhone with the Sling adapter. I pay for my programming plus the DVR fee of $7/mo. If I had a Hopper and 3 Joeys, I would be paying a $12 DVR fee plus $21 for the Joeys.

    This makes a lot of sense if you are a two person household with multiple TVs around your house and don't mind SD for the remote TVs.

    I assume they are still manufacturing the 722K and I hope they continue to offer it for the foreseeable future.

    I mirror both RF channels on my 722 and love the reliability of the RF remote (only works tuner 2, but still handy having tuner 1 at all TVs in house).

    Wish my D* RF remote worked as well.

    You can get your RF remote to work the TV1 output by removing the battery cover, pull out the blue and green tab at the bottom of the remote and flip it around so the green TV1 side is showing. Some of my remotes are set to TV1 and some are TV2. If I want to watch the other output from one of my TVs, I just borrow a remote from another room and change the channel on the TV.
