Poor 622 is dead
Posted 27 October 2008 - 06:04 PM
Called DISH today. Seems like it's a continouous reboot and the 'fan' noise is the drive trying to spin up. Good thing my CSR was knowledgeable. He even used words like 'flash memory' and 'hard drive'! WOW!
After trying a few obvious things, it becam clear the unit had died. The one time I did get it to reboot on Sunday, I managed to move about half my recordings to my hard drive. I guess I'll keep playing to see if I can get it to reboot once more.
So long old friend!

I don't have a power inserter. That went away when the 1000.2 antenna was installed. I will keep an eye on this though.

In my exprince if replacing recevers check the line all the way from dish to recever. Dont let you tech be lazy watch him. Went on an service call and customer showd me a stack of service calls all for the same 211 craping out.. Me bing the pro tec go under the house and find a old cable grond block inline that is only 1ghz . Reran the whole line and thus far 23 was his magic number for service calls never another problem. now any referals he has me install them.
