    I have a 722K and aside from the problem that wbowery mentioned and incorrect EPG data for stations that are channel sharing, the OTA module works fine for me. I'm in Fallston, MD and get all of the stations from Baltimore, most of the stations from DC, WGAL from Lancaster, PA and occasionally some stations from Philadelphia with good sized VHF and UHF antennae in the attic pointed at Baltimore and DC with an amplifier.

    If multiple OTA adapters stopped working at the same time it's possible there was a nearby lightning strike which wiped them out. Even nearby lightning can be the problem, it doesn't have to hit the antenna directly.

    We can definately state that Dish has not disabled OTA tuners, so if you are having problems, the issue is more than likely local - lightening strikes or other electric shocks being the most likely cause.
