Well I'll tell ya this does not give me much hope....my first 622 worked for about 24 hours then into auto reboot madness. Replacement did slightly better, lasted about a week...then into slightly different reboot cycle saying something about a smart card in an error message on the screen. Tech is coming tomorrow and it sounds to me like he is already set to call it a problem with the wiring in my brand new house, which by the way is wired with the R6 that Dish recommends I believe. So, tell me this, how in the world can they tell me that it is my house when the previous DVR was working beautifully for 6 months, and the problem only develped with the new reveiver?? Has anyone had any luck getting out of their contract and going to a different provider??? Seems like a bunch of bunk that they can just say oh its your wiring when their other boxes work just fine...I know this is a stretch for Dish but common sense tells me its an issue with the box. I did have some cheap coax, I think it was R59U?? Would that cause a problem?? Also are these "grounding" issues easily resolved??? Lastly why would the 622 be more susceptible to these issues than the other DVR's?? thanks in advance!! '94
THe issue is Dish knows it happens but is clueless as to why it happens and so they only have a couple of options, pretend it doesn't exist and blame the customer by coming up with completely bogus "reasons" why its his fault. Or replace the box and hope it magically goes away.
Of course what they should do is take all the returned boxes and do a study of what is going on and patch the software or roll back to before 4.49 when it didn't happen (or not nearly as much).
Of course that would make sense, so its likely the blame and delay and replacement spiral will continue for the foreseeable future.
