    Did anyone see today's WSJ article (cover of B1 section, "Competition, Technology Enhance the DVR)? It notes that Dish has a multiroom setup. I have a 622 setup with the two outputs, but my understanding is that there isn't any true multi-box capability planned (e.g., watch content recorded on one DVR from another DVR or set top box)

    Has anyone heard of any enhancements planned by dish to do this?

    1. name based recording on the 500 series of dvrs.
    2. external hard drive support on the 622 .
    3. native pass through resolution.
    4. L4.01 software for the 622 which will give you side by side pip

    Like you said.. multi-room does not equal multi-box. As for a multi-box feature, no planned announcement has been made as far as I know. Mike pretty much laid out the road map. We have seen evidence of 4 & 2. We have not seen any evidence of 1 and 3.

    The other features on the radar for the 622 is DishOnline and DishComm. Both have been mentioned as being added to the 622.

    I am sure there are other feature missed, but I don't recall multi-box content sharing as being one of them.
