For the very few times I use the Sling Adapter, the front USB port works for me. If you want to keep the SA connected I can see not wanting to use the front port. As for switching out your 622 for a 722, that can be frustrating if you go through the 800-number CSR's. Check with one of the Dish IRT folks here to see if they can facilitate an upgrade such as that. If they can't help you, PM me.
