    Dish Installed my 622 today.:) I hav a DVI cable to my projector so I bought a monster DVI to HDMI connector and I am seeing "sparkles" when I use the dvi
    However when I switch to component they are gone. Any thoughts?

    I guess you're saying that the DVI cable was fine with your previous HD receiver?

    Sparklies usually mean insufficient quality cabling but in this case it could just be the adapter. You might try a different one. Or you could try an HDMI to DVI cable and see how that does.

    How long is the cable? If you do get a new cable, get it from a place you can return it.

    The 622 HDMI transmitter may not be outputting the same voltage as your DVI source. If you can't replace the DVI cable, try calling Ultralink to find out about their HDMI/DVI repeater. It can get you 1080p/60 HDMI/DVI to 100 feet without drop outs like you have.

    I hooked up my 622 the other day before the official installation just to see. Ran video via S-video cable and audio via the digital output. The signal had that same "sparkles" like you describe. It was the same cable I use with my "current" 510 receiver and there were no problems. I also tried swapping out the cable but that didn't help either. I used the Y, Pb, Pr (or whatever) and the sparkles disappeared. I got the sparkles on SD (DN FYI channel) and also on the HD showcase in HD (when using the s-video cable)... Let us know if you are able to isolate the source of the problem... Keep the receipts on those cables because they might not be the problem. My cables were top quality too and only 6 ft.

    The 622 doesn't have an Svideo output.

    There is even an S Video cable in the box (but no components or HDVI).

    Wondered what that cable was doing in the box. This is what happens when your old and gray. I had to dig up a composit video cable because I couldn't fing the hole. Ain't that life-- the holes you figured out how too find don't help and the ones that would help you can't find:D

    I went out and got a HDMI to HDMI 6' cable today. Man are they expensive. So expensive I can see why people are seeing sparkles.:)

    Order one from monoprice.com and then return the one you bought locally.

    SVideo doesn't carry HD-quality signals. Use the component cables.

    I have to ask...is the HDMI really that much better than component? I agree the HDMI cables are ~$70+ at Target and I'm hedging on paying that if there is no real difference...especially since its just for the video component as the audio goes to a different input for me...

    Depends who you ask. On my set, I would say HDMI is slightly sharper, but you have to really look close. Much better..NO. Slightly better..maybe.

    Why is everyone buying these cables? Doesn't the free install from E* include these cables?
