Switching Dish receivers within the home
Posted 28 September 2010 - 08:12 PM
I have a Dish VIP 622 in the family/kitchen area and one in the home entertainment area. Switching the receivers is a no brainer. It's simple and straightforward but like was mentioned in the Directv thread, I want to make sure there are no issues with Dish Network or in switching the receivers.
Do I need to contact Dish Network after switching?

So, as long as you understand what you are doing, and/or come here for help instead of to Dish, move away.
NOTE: unplug your receivers and let them spin down and cool off a bit before moving them, and be VERY careful with the HDMI connections, which are very weak on the 622.

In that scenario, IF you move your 622 to another room you would have to do some re-cabling possibly to make things work right.
