722 w/o an external smart card?
Posted 25 May 2011 - 03:50 PM
By the way I have no clue what the problem is with the old 722. When I plugged it back in for the smart card issue I decided just for fun to view my DVR recordings on the drive and for some reason the hard drive wasn't failing anymore and I was able to view my recordings/watch my recordings. So when it makes it back to DISH's warehouse in Spartansburg, SC they could have a DVR that works. About a week before the failure messages I noticed the receiver was running a little hot at a high temp of 138, and an average temp of a 125 and it was almost impossible for my cousin and I to use TV1 & TV2 simultaneously without freeze ups, crashes, etc.
Sorry about the length of the post.

It does vary by receiver model whether or not it has/can have the internal/external smart card (we have a list)
Sorry that your receiver went out (temporarily I guess ), if you need anything let us know
