My old 508 was due for mandatory retirement soon so I opted to get a 612 to take its place in the back room and complement the 622 in the big room. I really like the OTA capabilities of both but worry that maybe the H/J combo would have been a better choice from both a feature and cost standpoint. Did I screw up too badly? After only one week the 612 has performed flawlessly. The phone helpers at DISH were clueless about a USB connected OTA dongle, and I wasn't in the mood to argue. Viewed through a very short lens I think I did the right thing. Gotta have that OTA out here in the country where no sub channels exist w/out it.
