    Hello all,

    A few weeks ago I posted a question about whether or not the 622 would come with an HDMI to DVI adapter. I was told it would but it arrived today without the adapter. Called Dish and they said the installer will bring it. Should I go out and buy one or wait for the installer to get here next Saturday and hope for the best?

    Thanks as usual.
    Craig

    FYI-I was also told the installer would be bringing the box out with them and the local installer told me it would be shipped to me. It's a good thing my wife was home to sign for it. :)

    I would NOT expect the installer to have it. If/when the installer calls to confirm the appointment you can ask.

    thanks, James. I think I will go out and buy one just in case. I can always return it. :)

    The 622 that I received via UPS from dish
    did NOT have any HDTV cable.
    It came with a seperator, a short rg-59 cable, a UHF antenna and attenuator, a phone cord, and an a/v cable (composite/audioleft/audioright)

    but NO HDMI or HDMI/DVI or HDMI DVI Converter! :(

    I would buy a cable to have for installation day

    The installer was kind enough to supply a set of component cables (which are now in storage for future use)

    I ordered one at monoprice.com for about 5 bucks. Works great.

    At DNSC, we are now being issued HD cables (both component and HDMI/DVI) to stock our vans. If you didn't get HD cables with your reciever, the installer should have them in his van.

    My installer did not have HDMI-->DVI convertor and installed using the composite connection. I callled Dish CS for another issue, mentioned the DVI concern, and they promised to send a convertor to me.
