Both of my 622's have the same household key.

Thanks. Sorry I didn't check for a response sooner. I really appreciate the answer- one step closer to replacing my two 508's with a second 722 or 612.

Sorry, yes, it says it is "currently configured for use with another DISH network receiver..." In order for me to use it It must delete all archived events... (And oh yes, Tech support was useless in assisting...


I'm curious to know if any of the posters in this thread who have received the "EHD content obliteration warning" message have also experienced either of the L4.49 induced "channel lock-out" or "corrupted favorites lists" issues as well?

That's good news. Maybe Dish has implemented the unlimited swap feature. I've received no firmware upgrade; still L4.49. I wonder how they did that. :confused:


I asked this question to Dish and got a confirmation. Customers should now be able to move EHD between receivers on the same account and there is no longer a limit to the number of moves one can make as long as the receivers are on the same account. So it appears Tulas that you are correct in your unlimited swap feature analysis.

Cool! Thanks for the confirmation.
Too bad for the folks who suddenly had to reformat their EHD's even though they had only had it connected to one receiver. :mad:

I was kind of waiting to see if anyone came up with a fix on this but got sick of waiting (I needed my external hard drive...) SO, I clicked yes and as I feared the format did kill all my programming from the drive. I hope this don't happen again or I am going to lose it... :grin: :eek2: :nono2: :nono: :mad:

My 722 and 622 have sightly different Household keys (one digit different). Has anyone had any luck getting Dish to make them the same ?

I would give Tech Support a call and ask them to "hit" your receivers. Not sure what that means, but others have posted that a "hit" solved their receiver thinking the EHD was assigned to another one.

That did it - the CSR had no idea what a Household key was but she knew how
to "hit" my receivers and they now have the same key.

Thanks, Ray
