Last night, my VIP622 DVR got a "Hard Drive Error". After unplugging the DVR and plugged it again, it re-booted and re-acquired the satellites. The DVR seemed to be working OK but all of my recorded programs had been erased but the timers were still intact. My current monthly bill includes: America's Top 200 (for $77.99) Local Channels (for $12.00) Equipment (Loyal Customer leased DVR) (for $7.00) Dish Movie Pack (for $10.00) DISH Protect Silver (for $8.99) Total $117.41 Doesn't the lease on the DVR cover replacement? What does DISH Protect do? ==================================== I chatted with a DISH agent. He said the VIP622 was an "old" model so he suggested getting a newer model (i.e., Hopper which would (keeping my current programming) increase my monthly bill to over $133.00 (!) and I'd have to commit to a 2-year contract). Does anyone have any better suggestions?
