I have been having problems with my component out connection through a Rotel receiver. The blue starts slowly fading away until completely off. The problem doesn't exist if the connection goes directly to the TV, at the same time the DVD and Xbox connected to the same receiver don't present any issue. I wasn't sure if the culprit was the 622 or the receiver, but then I posted questions on a Rotel forum and a member made me aware of a known issue with the 622 which may cause this problem: apparently the 622 (like some cable boxes) outputs some voltage on the component line. This doesn't usually present a problem with a direct connection to a TV set, but causes some issues on more "sensitive" equipment, like perhaps my Rotel receiver. I was also pointed to a device that clears the voltage from the signal.
I did a search here and couldn't find anything. Are you aware of this? Is there a fix from Dish?

Just remember that EVERY change in the line from the lnb or antenna to the sat receiver looses you signal.

This is every splitter or diplexer or barrel connection drops your signal strength just a little bit. I use solid cable every where i can, no splitters, no diplexers if possible.

Any marginal signals (especially OTA ATSC signals) may be degraded to the point where they are no longer available.
