    Haven't signed up for Dish yet. I need two-TV functionality, with independent control. Some threads here seem to indicate that the latest update turned this feature on, but I just chatted with dish tech support, and he said no.

    What's the deal? Is TV2 really turned on for independent watching, like with the 722, or not?

    thanks-

    So they say, it's been along time coming....but TV2 functionality to my knowledge is a reality......:ringo:

    "And the 922 is scheduled to be updated to S110
    New Features and improvements include 3D Support, TV2 support enabled, WI-FI- Push Button, Dish Remote Access IP VOD Support and Misc Under the Hook Changes.

    Remember these release notes can be reposted on other sites, but to do so you must include a link back to DISHsupport.COM with your release notes."

    Just chatted with my THIRD tech support guy at dish, and he's the first one to confirm that yes, the 922 is now DUO, just like the 722.

    This just happened within the last week I think with S110 firmware. I have a 922 and S110, but I don't have a setup to test TV2 because I don't need it... so I honestly can't say anything about how it works, but based on the posts I've seen online it would seem the 922 now has what the other Duo receivers have already had finally.

    Does the 922 have a TV2 output? That is why I have not gotten one. Seemed useless if I had to keep waiting for the extender sling thing. Even then, I would be leery if it was good enough quality to ever consider it.

    If it has TV2 out, is it HDMI, or what?

    Looking at the back of the 922, TV2 is a single set of RCA plugs.

    Pulled from the 722K brochure, but the 722's back looks exactly like the back of the 922.
    "1 Agile modulated coaxial output to distribute programming to a remote TV location"
    "1 set RCA-type audio/video outputs"

    Also, TV2 out is a Sling streaming.

    TV two output should also be on the coax.

    TV2 output is the same as the 722, except it can also be HD via Sling.

    TV2 out via the home distribution coax does work after the update.

    Here is my question.

    I have two remotes. The one that came with the 922(uhf) and a 20.0 Infra Red remote. Both of these remotes currently work TV1.

    How do I switch my UHF remote to work TV2?

    flip the chip.

    Open the battery door, on the chip that says "1" in green, pull with your fingernail until it comes out. Flip it over. Plug it back in. It'll have a blue 2 on it now. Voila.

    Interesting! This really begs the question of why! Why not enable it from day one. They alienated a lot of customers who gave up on the 922 within the first month it came out based on the lack of TV2 capability. :nono2:

    Guess I should see how much it is again and put it back on my "maybe get someday" list. It was on my "gotta have" list just before it came out.

    Thanks Rasputin...

    jkane I really don't know what their angle was not releasing the 922 fully functional. Doesn't really make sense to me.

    I know that I thought there was no way that they would spend the money to have all those outs on the back of a receiver and just let them sit there. So I went ahead and went with the 922 in hopes that they would enable them.

    Seems to me dish made another buck [$30] by removing basic TV2 functionality from boxed 922 model intentionally;
    don't tell me they didn't has plans for TV2 from beginning !

    Now all customers forced to buy second remote at own expenses! :mad:

    I know it wouldn't be high def, but 16x9 on the TV2 modulated output would be nice for the guest room. Since 16x9 exists on the TV1 modulated output, seems like the same shouldn't be too difficult for TV2.

    Could you change a format/ratio by second remote ?

    I tried every combination I could find for TV2 and it looks like 16x9 is not an option.
