Is there a question here? Have you attempted to call Dish and ask them what they can offer you and what the cost will be?

Use of sentences and capitalization would make this easier to follow. I think your question is basic, but it's not totally clear what you want to end up with.

"analog receiver" All Dish channels are delivered in a digital stream. I'm guessing you have an SD receiver (322? 522?) that you wish to upgrade to HD.

The ViP222 is the HD equivalent of the 322. The DVR 622/722 is the HD upgrade of a 522/625 and adds the ability to record ATSC from local broadcast. All 3 can output TV2 over your choice of channel 21-69.
