They carry the same fees. Having a 922 raises the account-level DVR fee from $6 to $10.

BobaBird, isn't the time to expand EKB for new box [XiP813] info ? ;) Perhaps then OP reading it will wait for the model little longer ?

Indeed it is. The info seems to be exclusive to another site (when I was too busy to keep up with here and there). Maybe I can slap something together before I go to be in the morning.

I bet they don't know what the current status of testing it ;). Also some snapshots would be advantageous for EKB.

I suspect the former will lead to the latter. Expect pics on EKB about 1/10 unless someone can send some sooner.

Isn't this OT talk risking you getting shot or choked? I hear some people don't like it. ;)

I'm aiming to the OP - he is in process of make a decision and adding more info about the new model 813 could change his minds dramatically. :)

It took longer than I thought, but here's the new page: http://www.dishuser.org/xip813.php

Verrrrry interesting! Thanks for doing the work to bring together all the information in a clear concise format.

Oh, ah - that is the old discussed DP or ViP422 ....
Interesting the apparatus [XiP813 aka DP422] also certified for Canada by UL.

Now, it would be interesting to know under what name will materialized other device DP544 (Whole Home Media DVR ?), perhaps when it will come to life/exhibitions ?

I could never get a 722k out of Dish, despite things read here.
I did find one on CL locally and will attempt to replace my 622 with it one of these days.:grin:

I just got a 722k. I was thinking of getting the ota for the box. I have 2 questions, is there a fee for the ota function outside the normal fees? And where can I get the ota module cheap?:confused:

Can someone please help me with upgrade from 722 to 722k? I want the dual OTA tuner.

I am currently "leasing" the 722 based on 2 year committment, which ended over a year ago. When I called Dish and asked about an upgrade to the 722k, they say that there is no mechanism to do so, and the only alternative is for me to purchase a 722k.

Are there other options? Is it necessary for me to cancel and restart service, or should I be able to get them to agree to another "lease" and 2 year committment? It is hard to get a handle on the delays and costs involved, and Dish is not very forthcoming with such details. Also, what happens if my current 722 dies? Am I faced with the same options?

What language is needed to get a replacement? I do not participate in the protection plan.

Never settle for just one answer,escalate the question,in other words ask to speak to Dish's Loyalty Department.If their answer isn't satisfactory to you,then you would need to purchase the receiver,or sign up for DirecTV,and if you have to leave be sure to tell them why your leaving DISH.Good Luck!:)
