Here is a summary of the symptoms of an ailing ViP622 (L6.14) and 750 GB WD MyBook (Home Edition): (1) No particular issue viewing either OTA or satellite programming. (2) Pausing live programming appears to work, but striking "Play" reverts to "Live TV." (3) Playback of any DVR programs recorded prior to mid-July (date not certain) plays without any problem --- both on internal DVR or from programming previously transferred to EHD. (4) Recordings after above date up to about one month ago exhibit extreme audio drop outs --- appearing only upon playback (frequently reported by others). (5) Commencing about 6 weeks ago, recordings of undistorted live programming show the same drop-outs (4) plus severe video break-ups when played back. (6) Presently, I am unable to transfer any programming to EHD (including programs recorded before mid-July). Transfer appears to start, but after 5-10 minutes the transfer(?) ceases with Error 855. Nothing from this aborted attempt is seen on EHD and the program on the DVR appears intact. (7) I suspect that the audio dropouts and the distorted video recorded on internal DVR are separate issues --- as these two problems did not commence concurrently. Most of these issues have been reported to Dish. I'm patiently (but not for much longer) awaiting a software update that techs say (hopefully) may correct these problems.
