Can someone tell me the difference between the new Dish 922 and 722-S DVR? I plan on coming home to Dish and want to get the best DVR. I would like to know a list of differences between the two or maybe there is a site I could go to that would explain the differences.....Thanks, Mark.

The 922 will have
Bigger HDD
SlingBox Built-in
Completely new GUI
Full internet browser
Overall way better than the 722 with all its new features IMHO.

The 922 won't be coming out for a while though. The 722 is great. I currently have one and couldn't be happier. If your switching to Dish now get a 722 and when the 922 comes out upgrade.

I don't believe I heard of a 722-S. There is a 722k coming out with an OTA module that gives you 2 OTA tuners. Is that what you're thinking about?

There is not a 722-S. Yes, there is a 722K with an OTA module

The 922 doesn't have a monitor and its to big to me to call it portable.

No big deal. I just didn't want man215 to get confused. Don't worry about it though I make mistakes all the time.

"722s" was an early concept name for the receiver now known as the ViP922. It is based on the ViP722k.

If the 722S was the early concept for the 922, then how is anyone supposed to elaborate on the differences since neither are actually in anyone's hands for comparison?
