I am interested to know how many people out there have had to replace there vip722 receiver.
Replaced once after 4 months. Ready to be replaced again 6 months later.
722K replaced (does that count?) after 4 months but not sure new one is any better - my thinking is leaning towards the reality that the 722K design is not very robust
1 722 replaced for failed hard drive after 9 months. On my second now. So far so good last few months
Have had mine since they initial release. No replacing (Knocking on wood).
I have 2 722's from the time that they first became available. No problems.
When I converted to HD in September 2007, the first 722 delivered failed in two days but the replacement worked fine. When I agreed to swap out for Echostar Engineering to solve the Bay Area audio drop problem in September 2008, Dish Quality told me to keep mine until I got a replacement that worked. Sure enough, the first replacement wouldn't even boot. The second replacement has worked fine since. The one delivered in 2007 was new, the other three were refurbs. I think they are manufacturing 722k's now, so I think all you can get is a refurb 722, but I could be wrong.
Had mine since Jan 2008, no problems.
Replaced 722 twice. Both would lose video when idle for a long time but audio would continue to work.
2 VIP 722's since they were released, no problems.
Have had my 722 since Aug 2008 no problems
May have to replace mine now. Keeps dropping local off air channels completely and pixalation and sound drop out getting worse on all channel recordings.
Yep, me too.
Bought a new 722 off Ebay last Christmas to replace numerous failing refurbed 622s and it's been running fine since. *knock on wood*
Mine had the exactly same symptoms (mines the off air problem) - most likely HD problem. I just swapped mine for a new one last night after about 15 months of usage.
The interesting observation is that the original (old) one was manufactured in Mexico, the new one is from India. I am not sure if that is an improvement.
I've never had to replace a dish network receiver because of failure. I wonder why others have had problems? Maybe I'm just lucky
2 years running,no replace ...
Over 2 years and working fine.
Two ViP 722's in the family, not a hiccup on either one.
