In the last 10 months we've had to have our 622 replaced 6 times, that's right 6 times. Each one has had a unique problem, never a repeat. From completely dead, to intermittent lock-ups (a tech came out to verify this), to the remote not working (a tech came out to verify this) and now the latest VIP 622 drags down our phone lines (At&t tech came out to discover this). Has anyone else had so many problems with VIP 622 replacements from Dish? Dish has offered to upgrade us to the 722 for free, but only if I sign up for another 2 years. If the 722s have as many problems as the 622s, NO thanks!!! Dish has also decided that we have suffered sufficiently to allow us to opt out of our current contract a year early. I would like to hear about people's experiences with Dish, DVRs and such before I make a decision to move on to Direct TV or cable.
