The Engineer at Dish with whom I was corresponding indicated that they believed it was a software issue with the 722k.
Interestingly, it has occurred twice since I upload my logs, etc, to Dish and I have saved those corrupted(?) files - but can not get the Dish Engineer to respond to my E-mails.
I just sent another E-mail to the contact, copy to the CEO contact that has always helped with "issues" in the past.
I have now heard from Dish Engineering again. They are certain it is a software issue and not an install or individual receiver issue.
They are sending me a replacement and an RMA lable via US Mail so that i can return my receiver to Colorado with three
recordings that all appear normal, yet skip to the end at some point. (Last night I recorded two one-hour episodes of TNT's "Leverage." Both recordings appeared to be complete. However, five minutes into the first episode the recording simply skipped to the end-screen.)
The three defective recordings on the receiver were recorded on TNT, DIY, and ENCORE. (I will include a note advising them that in the past the problem has also occurred on an OTA recording.)
It will be interesting to see if a 722k
replacement shows up... and also if it has the OTA module. (If not, I'll install mine in it.) Also, we'll see if I can successfully save the old 722k
's timers to my remote and transfer them to the new 722k
. (If not, I'll do what I've done in the past with my 622.... take photos of the TV screen listing my timers.)
