I'm just used to my receiver having an led for each signal type that lights up accordingly to wait the channel is broadcasting; letting you know whether it's 480, 720, 1080.

For example, if you set your output to 1080i then all 1080i channels are passed through as they come from the SAT... 720p and SD channels are "upconverted" to 1080i for output.
There is no "native passthrough" option for the Dish receivers.

and the DVR then takes whatever is coming in and converts it. I could be wrong so maybe someone of greater knowledge will correct me. Oh and my 722 and 612 do not show what is coming in.

Nope, not wrong. Have you ever been wrong? I don't remember it if you have.
What I understand is that you use the menus (922 on top, 622/722/612 on bottom) to set the output of the ViP DVR and the DVR then takes whatever is coming in and converts it. I could be wrong so maybe someone of greater knowledge will correct me. Oh and my 722 and 612 do not show what is coming in.
