MT2 is an OTA module that is installed with the 722k and a few other receivers. You'll be able to tell if the receiver is new or refurbished. Most new installations will use a new receiver.

Dish Pass is a timer where the receiver will record all matches for the timer created. For example, if you create a Dish Pass timer for Family Guy, all matches for Family Guy are recorded, which could fill your HD quickly.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Thanks.

newbie question, I read the whole thread.


I think that is the 722K with the OTA module installed.

Is that right? I have read other threads where the installer has given the person one who asked.

Also, how do you know if you get a new 722k or a refurb one? What is the easiest way to tell?

I have an install coming up from DTV for 11 years. This has been some fun reading about Dish.

We had the tivo and used season pass all the time. It appears "timers" are the new word to get used to? Or is Dish Pass, I have not gotten to that yet in my research, is the same thing?

I hope this switch goes well.

So Dish Pass timer for Family guy and you can probably choose new episodes only or all showings etc.

Looking forward to it, thanks for all the info.
