Why not scan it and post here ?
WHAT IS SLING?
Sling is the device that allows you to watch live TV and DVr recordings on any device that has a high speed internet connection. Computers, laptops, ipads and smartphones. http://www.dishnetwork.com/tveverywhere/whatistveverywhere/default.aspx
I was looking on web site for Dish and noticed that phone line must be connected to receiver. I do not have a phone line close to where the reciever would be located. Will this be a problem if I decide to switch to Dish? Is ther any way to hook up a line to it?
This is one solution.. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/setup-phone-line
Will I need a DSL filter for power line phone connector?
Hi, you do not need to have the receiver connected via a phone line. Our tech's will try to get you connected to internet if at all possible. You get more features with the broadband connection.
If your service has filters they will need to be installed on the reciever line as well.
Phone line connection is a moot point for the 922... Last I heard Dish would not install a 922 without a connection to broadband... And that satisfies the connection requirement better than the phone line.
For software reasons the vip922 is unavailable at this time for upgrades. The 722K is available at this time. The 922 has Sling capabilities built in, the 722K requires an adapter. Many here and elsewhere seem to prefer the 722K because it is more reliable, less buggy.
I have both, the 922 is more interesting, bigger hard drive, fancy graphics, user friendly menus, but not with out it's issues, catastrophic failures, lost data, (Sling was terrible for months but is much better now).
The 722 is a older generation, seemingly stable, most bugs seem to have been worked out but could be limited if the new XIP series materializes with full house functions...stay tuned for that....
I'm sure you'll here from others, both pro this and con. There are many post and threads here and elsewhere on this topic. My home theater receiver is the VIP922. The 722k we use for bedrooms and guest areas.
Thanks for the info.
I've had the 922 for over a year and the only problem I ever had was when I "lost" all recordings from my external hard drive. A two minute call to tech support fixed it when they told me to go into the menu and re-schedule the nightly update, and all my recordings were back once the update was finished. My only complaint is that I'd really like to be able to stream BBMP on my 922, but I can't.
I'm waiting for that feature too on my 922. I hope it occurs soon. Thanks.
After just going through the absolute worst customer service experience in my life trying to get D*TV installed with an HR34, which they can't seem to produce, I am again looking at going back to E* and was hoping to order new service with a 922.
Is my understanding correct that if I called today, I can't get anything larger than a 500GB DVR (722) from E*? If that's the case, I'll just wait for something else to release.
With Dish you have the option of moving content off to an external hard drive if you chose. So your available storage could be essentially limitless.
I see, so if I connect a 2TB external I could directly record/access shows from 2.5TB of space?
DO I actively have to "move" the files, or does it just extend the capacity seamlessly? Thanks!
you have to move them. it's not a big deal. once they're moved they can be played from the HDD.
Is the 922 going away?.It has been reported on the other site.The answer is Yes!.
The ViP922 Slingloaded DVR has been removed as an option for new and existing customers at this time. The Blockbuster Movie Pass Software has not been released yet for this receiver and it will not be available again until this has been completed. It is not gone but just temporarily unavailable at this time!
