I starting having a problem with my VIP722K today. If you hit the DVR button, the DVR menu never appears and no other buttons respond at that point. You can continue watching the channel you were on. If you reboot the DVR, it'll respond to other buttons until you hit the DVR button. I've tried rebooting several times now, and on 2 of those times when it booted it said an error about a hard drive failure. But it doesn't say that every time. I started a chat w/ Dish tech support, fearful that my HDD in my fairly-new DVR was dying. Instead, I got some interesting info: "This is a known issue that our engineering team is currently looking into." "We've had numerous reports so they are working on a fix." "They usually take place through software update." "This has been happening since 9/21/14. no report at this time as to what caused it." I'd take that as good news... except, if it were really a known problem since 9/21 I'd expect to see SOME mention of it on here (or another particular forum). But I search and... nothing. So now I'm suspicious. Am I missing a thread somewhere? What do others think?
