Rotrykt- Hopefully, you know the drill on the 622 HDMI- You need to contact Dish and get a 622 tech on line and request a replacement. Yopu have one of the 622's with a bad HDMI connection. It's a hardware flaw in the solder joints.
Yes, I know the procedure. Since I bought it from a local retailer, I am tempted to try a solder repair myself and if that doesn't work, take it back to them for a replacement. I need to be totally sure before I try such a drastic step. I used to build Heathkits back in the '70s, so I have done a few circuit boards in my time, but none of the new surface mount stuff. The HDMI on mine is a very poor connector. It was loose when I first plugged a cable into it and it moves around very easily. There must be a better quality socket on the market since the one on my Vizio TV is rock solid and grips the connector firmly. I think Dish just spec'd a cheap piece of hardware.

I returned my last one after repeated "smart card is not authorized" messages, which would go away after about 2 minutes, but would kill any recordings taking place.
My 921 now periodically irks me when it stops responding and won't power off (power lights go off, but still continues to show a picture) and requires a cold boot.
