Four year old vip722 is now freezing on dvr playback. Resetting, rebooting many times has not solved the problem. do not believe it is a overheating problem either, average temp is 129, in same original location with ventilation. Am I looking at equipment failure? Will Dish replace with no charge? Any charge for the 922? Any info is appreciated.

They will give you the same receiver for free and the shipping on the return is free also. The 922 is $200. Sounds like a harware failure though also, im sure its the hard drive.

With Service Plan you get free replacement with same receiver, without Service Plan it is $15 to replace the receiver, assuming the 4 year old box is out of warranty.:D
