I've had the 922 for over a year and the only problem I ever had was when I "lost" all recordings from my external hard drive. A two minute call to tech support fixed it when they told me to go into the menu and re-schedule the nightly update, and all my recordings were back once the update was finished. My only complaint is that I'd really like to be able to stream BBMP on my 922, but I can't.
Wow, the same thing happened to me a few days ago, just over a year since I've had Dish. I re-scheduled the daily update for the Program Guide to a different time. Keeping my fingers crossed. I hope that the one recording I transferred over to the external hard drive since I "lost" all the recordings does not preclude your solution from working.
2/17/2012: Well, it didn't work. All of the recordings on the external drive, (except for the one I added afterwards) really are lost I guess. The drive still works and will accept additional recordings. Not good!
