I have 2 622 receivers but the main one on the Family room was installed in 2004 so is almost 5 years old. I am starting to see intermittent 1 second dropouts of audio on both live TV and on some recorded shows. Happens sporadic- maybe 1-2 times a night and I haven't seen a trend towards certain channels.

Could this be a sign that the 622 is starting to reach the end of it's life and should I start asking DISH for a new receiver or just wait and see if it worsens? It is a leased receiver so what would DISH offer me if replaced at some time?

Dish would probably replace your 622 with refurbished 622.

I'm almost sure the 622 wasn't even out in 2004. At that time the only DVR out from E* was the 921.

You're right. There were no ViP622 DVRs in 2004. According to Dish's own publication they weren't available until January 2006.

So what does the OP have and when did he get them?

Move programs you don't want to use to an EHD so you can minimize what you lose if it does fail.

I assume you mean two (sat) tuner DVRs. :)

Ok, if you say so. The 921 was the very first DVR I ever used.

How 'bout the 501, 508, 510? :rolleyes:

Many of us had these long before your 921. lol

Oh yeah, I remember now, I had a 510 and still do in a closet. I was referring to the first HD DVR (the 921). Didn't know I had to be so specific?

My 7 month old 622 started dying yesterday with constant attempts to reboot, some successful and some not, even after power-plug resets. When it does boot up, it's not long before it starts trying to reboot again. The counters menu shows high temp reading of 125 degrees, and average is less than 120, so I don't think this is a heat-related failure. To make matters worse, I just learned I'll be charged $15 shipping for a replacement :nono2:, which seems all wrong, but I have no choice since I have no desire to switch to D* after 12 years of very satisfactory service from E*.

He's not alone. I didn't know what the OP was talking about either as it sounded like he had no idea what he was talking about!

P.S.

Apologize to lujan, I thought I had looked back to see who the OP was, but obviously made a mistake.

The 1st one this year!

Your response to my post was the following:

"RELEASE DATE: January 21, 2006
You're right. There were no ViP622 DVRs in 2004. According to Dish's own publication they weren't available until January 2006.

So what does the OP have and when did he get them?"

How is that not understanding what I meant? I'm NOT the original poster.

Looks like we are derailing a bit here.. Lets wait for the OP to come back and provide some details as something is amiss.
