    I use remote#2 in a different room from where the 622 and remote#1 are located. The 622 always has at least a 3 or 4 second delay when changing stations or using the program guide. I can't figure out why. This is very annoying. Remote #1 works normally. Anybody know the answer.

    How far away is the TV2 remote being used from the recevier? The delay could be caused by interference or the distance of the TV2.

    I had the issue when i first installed my 622 and i ran a coax from the back of the receiver connected to the light green remote antenna port to the room where my TV2 is and connected the antenna there and i have not had any problems since. Granted i dont think the average consumer is going to want to take these steps.

    Did you try switching your TV2 remote from A Band to B Band?

    Is your Remote 2 transmitter at the receiver or at TV2. When I got mine installed last year the installer put the Remote 2 transmitter at the DVR but could not get Remote 2 to work at TV2. He said it was too far/too much interference. He then took the transmitter down to TV and conneced it there and it works. Not sure exactly what he used but I do know that I do not have once cable coming into TV2 but rather the cable from the wall goes into some kind of splitter. One cable from the splitter goes into the TV and the other side has a small antenna looking thing attached which is what talks to Remote 2. You may want to call Dish and see how you can get this setup.

    I've had a similar problem.

    After not using the system for a few weeks, I found no signal. After a reset, I received a signal but the system responded to any and all remote buttons only after about a 7-second delay. I called DISH, and went through many reset steps, but with no change. They sent me a new remote ($6 shipping) and after coding it to the receiver, the delay dropped to about 4 seconds, but still very irritating. I have another receiver, with another remote, and clearly the problem is in the #2 receiver, not the remotes. (I swapped and recoded the remotes and used them with both receivers.)

    Resetting the box by the OFF button and the plug have helped not at all. Any suggestions?

    Is there any way to REALLY reset the receiver?
