eBay. Other than that, I don't see many around. You might have better luck finding a 722 or 722k.

No particular reason. I am more familiar with the 622 and the price is usually much cheaper than 722. The 612 might be ok, but I would like to have an S-video out. When was the 612 first released?

The 612 was released Feb 2008.

It's cheaper because the HDMI port will either work for a couple of months or may not even work when you get it. I hope you want to use component cables on it.

Before buying any receiver from eBay or Craigslist contact Dish to see if it can be authorized.
