The 922 is back with the same unreliable sling connection. Frustrating.

Are you getting an error message? Would you describe what happens when you attempt to sling? Would you provide your login information so I can test your account with my equipment here? Please let me know. Thanks.

Ray - I have had this unit for quite a while - very much appreciate you being so kind to assist. I get various error messages and can email you with the info if that is ok. The strange part of it seems to be that it will show a connection both on my laptop and the 922 simultaneously. Whether my preference is to try to watch live tv or something recorded on the dvr, it still times out with no success more so than not. Many times if I hit refresh on the browser 4-6 times I may have luck. Please let me know what you would like as far as info is concerned and if it is ok to email you. Thanks a million.

Please send me a PM so I can further assist you. I tried sending you a PM but you don't accept PMs at this time. Thanks.

Thanks for your dedication and expertise in trying to help me with this. I will review your PM. You deserve an award for all that you do for me and everyone else on Dish - we are so lucky to have you!

Does this mean that Dish is actually going to support this receiver finally?! I can't believe it still doesn't support Dish Pass or Manual Timers. I've also been having trouble with some of my shows not being recorded and I can't for the life of me figure out why they're being skipped. It appears to be extremely random.

I sure hope this receiver starts getting the love it deserves. I'm tired of my upgrade feeling like a downgrade.

On the 922, just like the 722k, the OTA is an extra cost option. But it is an internal one. You just take a small plate off the back of the unit and slide the tuner module into place.

On the others, OTA is built-in already.

With the Hopper, when OTA becomes available it will be a USB device.



Correct but the Tuner Module is a "Tuners Module" because the MT2 is a Dual Over The Air Tuners Module.;):D
