    If I move my 722 away from the phone/internet jack and hook up my smart tv to wireless/router, will the 722 transmit info through the hdmi cable to tv? Strange thought, eh? I don't know if the hdmi transmits data or just video/sound. Is the HDMI cable two way?

    So my 722 should be able to use the tv's wifi. Updates, PPV and ect. will transmit correctly to dish?

    Very easy to tell. Connect the HDMI cable and then go into your 722 setup menu and see if it has an IP address. I find it hard to believe this would work but I am not really familiar with the CEC connection and what all information can pass with it.

    Your chances using your TV's Internet connection for 722 via HDMI is zero. The DVR has no provision to utilize Ethernet via its HDMI connection.

    Hmm. Maybe I will check into one of those wireless adapters then.

    I connected a single wireless adapter to a hub to supply wired network connections to several bits of AV gear on my rack. No more worrying about whether a device has built-in wireless or not.

    I did the same thing -- I have my 622, Blu-Ray DVD and HDTV all plugged into the same linksys wireless router -- it saves $$ on having to purchase wireless adapters (each a bit different) for all my equipment. If you have the room you should go that way.
