DECISION MADE see below I'm about to make the jump from the SD Homezone to HD. I am VERY saddened to find out that the new HZ HD box is nothing more than a standard Dish HD 622 with Homezone software dumped onto it. In fact when the box is installed it comes with full Dish HD software and downloads the HZ software when it is connected to the satellite. So, in a nutshell, all of the software bugs that exist on the SD HZ box will be present on the HD HZ box. Plus the USB slave option is NOT available on the HZ HD box. To make matters worse, the HZ HD box can record less content because there is too much space being used for downloadable content that I have not even downloaded with the SD HZ box. It is a completely useless feature. I WILL NOT PAY $3 for a movie that can be seen on Encore!!! I WILL NOT pay $3 to download and watch The Breakfast Club (generic example). The downloadable movies is nothing more than an expanded PPV, which I don't even partake in anyway. I can always go rent it on Blue Ray. I get to enjoy the buggy HZ box with an extra fee of $10 every month! What do I use the Homezone for now? I like the screensaver feature. I don't use the music feature. Every song has a really horrible 'wall gap' between songs (songs do not play seamlessly on a seamless album). Launchcast radio is not all that great, not enough to justify the cost. I don't use Web Remote at all. There is no sort feature on the DVR. So, there is no way to arrange all episodes of "Good Eats" together. There is no way to arrange all of the shows by channel. Only by date. I've had the HZ box since December and they STILL HAVE NOT FIXED THESE FRIGGIN BUGS!!!!!!! And now they import these bugs to a perfectly fine working 622 and slap a Homezone sticker on it and then give me LESS SPACE. So, I have until around the middle of the week to decide if I'm going to get a Homezone HD or get out of the Homezone and into a Dish 622 or a 722 if possible for the same $149. That is, of course, providing I can get out of the Homezone. I know the HZ inside and out, but I know absolutely nothing about the "Award Winning" VIP622. Could you guys "sell" me on the 622 and tell me how much more of a joy TV viewing will be if I can get into a 622? Another thing that REALLY PISSES ME OFF is on the HZ (SD and HD) I cannot watch Charlie Chat!!!! I am NOT going to go and watch TV in the bedroom to see Charlie Chat and use the Dish Interactive features. Yeah, I love being an ATT/Dish customer. Having the X Games Interactive channels (how interactive were they really?) for the X Games was makin' me really proud to "one up" Direct and Concast I just don't have the confidence that the bugs that I have now will be fixed (anytime in the future) in the HD box. It will piss me off even more because I will be paying more to get screwed over the same way if I get the HD Homezone box. Please don't just point me to a PDF of the feature of the 622. Sell me on it. Why is the 622 so worthy of it's "Award Winning" status? Why do you really like your 622? The upstairs TVs are controlled by a 625 and I can't say that I'm impressed. In fact it's annoying that TV 1 can't simply record on TV 1 and TV 2 can't record on TV 2. From my ignorant understanding, (the way it is set up) recording for TV 1 are done on TV 2. So, when the wife is recording her show and watching something else, my daughter is forced to watch the recording show? Why can't the DVR be told in mid-recording to record in TV 1 and force TV 1 to watch that recording on TV 1, thus freeing TV 2 to be changed. (not all that important really, I don't have to put up with it). So, do you guys (and gals) understand my frustration on the Homezone HD vs. Dish 622?
