Hello all. I'm hoping I can get some insight on my 'plan of action'. Ok, here it goes (hope it's not too confusing) : My Basic needs: 1) I want a dual tuner receiver (not a PVR/DVR) 2) I already have a PVR (single tuner - 501 PVR) 3) I am not interested (yet) in an HD receiver 4) I want to integrate my entertainment system into Windows XP Media Center (with dual tuners) - so that I can record 1 show and watch another simultaneoulsy (thus the dual tuner functionality) Here's my quandry (regarding Dish satelite receivers): The only receiver that Dish offers with dual tuners that's NOT a DVR is the Dish322. I want to know if I can hook this up myself (providing I can obtain one and that I have the correct switches, etc needed). If so, what do I need? I want to then hook this into my computer (dual tuner card). I called Dish to upgrade my older receiver(s) - 3000 & 2700. I was told that all I can upgrade to are 311s. I inquired about the 322 and they said it is no longer available so I'd have to go with a 522 (not interested, it's a DVR) AND that if I did so, I could only lease it (not interested in this either). The tech said that if I 'acquired' a 322 (for instance, from Ebay) that it would not work (I'm guessing they won't activate it :nono2: ) because it's only for promotional considerations. I can get a 322 on ebay for around $50.00 - should I take a chance and buy this, set it up and then call Dish to activate? Why would Dish care what receiver I want to activate as long as they make money? I do realize that they'd rather have me pay for a DVR...but, if I want the dual tuner functionality (of the 322), wouldn't I have to pay extra for the functionality anyway? -- I plan on moving my 501 to my bedroom and switching out my oldest (3000) with my other (2700). Any advice on this would be mucho appreciated.
