    I'm very surprised to read that. Usually in your situation where there is no line of sight at a new location, cancellation fees get waived.

    Also, its $10.00 per month remaining on the commitment, not $30.00

    There's something wrong here based on your description of what happened. I'm just as surprised as puckwithahalo.

    This is one of those cases that should get a response from if you send them a polite letter with a complete explanation of what happened to you and a request for any relief from the obligation that they might be able to provide. Be sure to include a phone number as the response, if it happens, will likely be by phone within a week to 10 days. I don't want to get your hopes up, but it's worth a try.

    So I am still trying to understand this.

    Multi room viewing

    • I have DVR RECEIVER #1 in my living room that has a HDTV connected to it.
    • I have NON-DVR RECEIVER #2 in my bedroom that also has a HDTV connected to it.

    On the DVR I record show XYZ which is in HIGH DEFINITION. With that receiver in DUAL mode, can I:

    • Watch show XYZ on my NON-DVR receiver in the other room??
    • If so, can I watch show XYZ in HD on my NON-DVR receiver in the other room??


    If I am watching a college football game on my receiver in SINGLE mode on channel X, can I switch to PIP mode and watch both a game on channel X and channel Y at the same time (traditional PIP), or is it DLB???

    Thanks for the help guys!

    No, because they are different receivers.

    Yes. And the receiver does 'traditional' PIP.

    Mulit Room Viewing is a little different than the Dual mode/Single Mode on the ViP622/722.
    Dual Mode on the ViP 622/722, allows you to watch, the 2nd tuner or Recorded shows, without having to have another reciever at the other TV. Just run a cable to it. Its only SD for the output, you can run HDMI if you want, but then the 2nd TV has to watch whatever is on TV1. If you do the HDMI you might as well leave the system in Single mode, as you can't get 2 live HD outputs at this time, and you get DLB and PiP on the main TV.

    Multi Room Viewing-MRV, allows you to access a recorded show on any DVR in the house, from any another reciever in the House.

    PiP on on the ViP622/722, is just like Standard PiP, but its also DLB, as you are watching both Tuners, one big one small, and you swap between the 2 live tuners. You also have 60min's of buffer on both of those tuners as well.

    No, backfeed into other TVs means exactly that; backfeed to a TV. There is no receiver-to-receiver functionality.

    Just to clarify, PIP is "one big, one small", "one big, one not so small" or "both the same size" (splitscreen). Can also use it to swap between tuners, even when only displaying one tuner. This is my favorite feature.

    On the 65" TV, Split SCREEN IS REALLY COOL:D
