Newbie here, I tried to search and read for a while but didn't see anyone else with this problem.

In the past few days my 622 that I have had for a while has started acting up. While we are watching a show from the DVR the playback will jump or skip ahead about 2-3 seconds. If we jump back it will sometimes skip at the same place and sometime not skip. It seems to happen more frequently with HD recordings but I am pretty sure we have seen it on SD shows also. I don't think it has happened when watching "live TV" but it definately has when watching buffered "live".

Heat was my first thought but it doesn't seem overly warm, going to check the actual temp tonight since I have found posts telling how to dig that info up.

Is there a way to defrag the HD? or to check for bad sectors?

How much am I looking at if I call Dish and they send someone out?
