Without the Channel Plus you could get both TV1 and TV2 off of the ViP722k using its internal agile modulators (this is still an option if you bypass the Channel Plus).
The Channel Plus gives me the option to watch the TV2 signal from the 722 on Channel 64, the 211 signal from the 211 on Channel 62 and I have my DVD player setup for Channel 60. Without the Channel Plus I wouldn't be able to have those options on five other TV's would I?
The Channel Plus is just to keep your ViP211 and the DVD playing together? For that money, I would have bought some more DVD players and gone ahead with the ViP211 on channel 3 (with an inexpensive DA if necessary).
