Actually the USB port is used for PocketDish and will be used for External USB Drive Support.

As for downloading files off your DVR to a PC. Due to copyright issues, I doubt you will see this being offered by Dish in the near future.

As for #3. I removed it because of the no bash rule in the support forums. ;)

I received my first 622 on 5 Feb. and it worked flawless until 7 Mar. when turned on in AM and pressed guide which only showed about 1/3 of screen and froze up. I did a front panel reboot and it never came on so power cord reboot with same result 3 times. Called Dish and had replacement 9 Mar. took less than 20 mins. to activate and not a single problem since then, no dropouts, no missed or lost timers and I love it. The 211 I have is 14 months old and was only rebooted for audio sync about once a month and still going strong. Both are wired with component and optical, PQ both HD & SD is great.

As a test.. Check out HDNet and DiscoveryHD. If you are getting 5 to 10 issues an hour I would think something is wrong. On those channels I rarely see a glitch.

I did record an hour of HDNet on Monday night, and watched it last night. It exhibited the same major audio dropouts that the local CBS does. Audio goes away completely for a minute or so, during which all you hear is the occasional "bloop". Did that twice in an hour, and the video broke up 4 times in the hour. Forgot to check levels though, which I'll do before replacing it.

So I called Dish about getting the replacement; it took awhile, because now they told me they were aware of the Dallas local problems (last few times they told me they weren't, so maybe enough people have finally complained). No timeframe on resolution. They finally agreed to replace my receiver; 3-5 business days before it gets here, which was surprising. Seems like most people get them in 1-2 days.

I switch to dish network from time warner cable last week. I am also a former dtv sub(sd only). I can honestly say that the picture quality with the 622 both hd and sd r superior to both twc and dtv. I have a Sony grand wega Kdf-42we655.

I have also recently switched to Dish. We had Cox for our cable company. The picture quality of both SD and HD are far superior to what Cox provided. As for the 622, it has been working perfectly for just over 1 month now. It is also a far better DVR than the SA 8300 we had with the cable company.
