    Well Tylast.. we know your hot List.

    Forgot a few.

    1) USB Hard Drive Support
    2) USB Keyboard Support.
    3) Expanded Timer Events and Timers maximums
    4) DishComm Support.

    And I am sure there are more I forgot that I would consider popular requests. So out of the ones listed. I would place Native Resolution passthrough on the top of my list. DishComm would be second.

    Also added external USB drive support as a write in. Problem is that once a poll is created, you cannot add entries to it.

    Also rather confused on the Ethernet entry. Enabling ethernet in itself does nothing unless you also add some services on top of the ethernet. Each one of those services I could see as a seperate desired feature. Top of my list would be the ability to view content from another box streamed. I am not saying copying content, I am saying viewing content. Copying content between two 622s also would be welcomed specially if it was through DishComm.

    I didn't add USB hard drive support because it appears that the feature is almost there. I plugged up my USB stick and the 622 recognized it & asked to manage it. Then it said that the feature is not supported. Seems like quite a bit of trouble to go through if they weren't going to enable it soon. Yeah, too bad I can't edit a poll....because I would.

    As far as the Ethernet ~ the intent would be to map networked drives that had other content to play via the 622.

    I think everyone has some uses they would like to see for the ethernet port and I am sure they are all different as we just demonstrated. ;) If you are talking about a USB Stick. It should work today for pictures. I believe there was some mention of an issue with 3.58, but it does work with 3.57. At least it my USB stick worked. ;)

    Yes, external HD support by whatever way they want. I have it since day one with the HDTIVO and that is a real treat with that DVR. I have 5 drives now.

    My point is the poll does not indicate what use you are voting for. There are lots of things that can be done via Ethernet support but no specific features are included.

    Apparently, I missed this announcement, and a search of this forum didn't turn anything up. What use for the ethernet port has been announced?

    What does "faster playback" mean? Fewer keystrokes to access playback?

    A few have wanted a high speed playback with normal audio. I expect that is what they are refering to.

    From my understanding, Dishcomm is not not on top of ethernet. Dishcomm uses the electrical lines for its communication pipe.

    Apparently lots of things were shown at team summit. Since I only have third hand info from other postings from those who attended, I will let someone who actually have details post. Ethernet use was one thing, Dishcomm another.

    RonBarry, is Native Resolution passthrough one of the desired features for potentially using an external proce$$or with Dish?

    Can't imagine you're not happy with internal scaler or need to aggressively process Dish signals in first place :)

    The main use I see is passing an the SD signal and letting the TV scaler do the scalling to possible maximize your SD PQ. From what I have read here, there area also other uses. Will PQ be better, well my guess would be a YMMV scenario. However, without it is not convient to have the option. Native Passthrough in my eyes just provides more options to the user. Once feature I wanted in my 811, 921 and now hope it appears on the 622.

    Not sure what you are getting at with your second line, I just have a 622 hooked up to a Sony GWII and a 622 hooked up to a CRT HD set so I don't have anything processing the signal inbetween.
