Well that is good.. :D in the picture it was hard to tell... Did you try plugging your USB fan in both USB ports?

Sure sounds like you have a flaky box. I would start pushing towards a 722 given you are on your fourth 622.

I only tried the back USB port.

I should get a 722 for sure, but the CSR decided to leave the chat and I'm starting over with another one :bang

I would give the front one a try.. Shouldn't make a difference but it might. I still am not a fan of the receiver on the bottom.. but given it is a open cabnet I doubt you are running into a heat build up problem.

Another thing you can do is get a fan and blow it at your cabinet for a few days and see if the problem goes away. That might rule out heat but since it is a open cabinet I am leaning away now from heat has being an issue..

I would if the receiver ever boots up :rolleyes:. It shows the sat acquisition screen and it goes blank again.

Could be grounding of the Dish installation or an issue with the outlet or surge protector in that room. I'm not saying it is, you may very well have bad luck, but those are other issues that can cause the types of problems that you are having.

I had my 722 in a similar enclosure and the only way I was able to solve the problem was to move the receiver to the top of my console. It has faithfully served as a pedestal for my Toshi for many months without fail.

Based on my experience, and a lot of info on this board, the 622/722 models are uber-sensitive to even the slightest air circulation disturbances.

The Dish Network technician just left the house. Pretty much he installed a new ViP722 :hurah:, he didn't want to mess with the house installation or wiring.

The regional DN (he was checking on the technician work) said that if this one takes a dump, I should call an electrician to check for "floating grounds" or ground installation in the house.

I'm keeping fingers crossed, this one will be the one.

If you can update the thread after a month of use that would be helpful.

I went through all your gyrations with DN also. They kept saying bad receiver, bad receiver, bad receiver. Long story short... Tried everything, including having Georgia Power come out and check for voltage fluctuations... Turns out it all my problems was due to a bad power inserter for the DPP44 switch. ...it took over a month of sending/receiving receivers. Some units worked for days, others just hours. It made no sense. But anyways.... Sometimes it's not always the most obvious.
