    I apologize because this question was addressed for people with Directv but not for Dish Network. I would think that the answer would be the same for both but they are different companies. I need to know if this also applies to people that have Dish Network.

    I have a Dish VIP 622 in the family/kitchen area and one in the home entertainment area. Switching the receivers is a no brainer. It's simple and straightforward but like was mentioned in the Directv thread, I want to make sure there are no issues with Dish Network or in switching the receivers.

    Do I need to contact Dish Network after switching?

    Dish doesn't care if you switch receivers, but WILL care if you "break" your system by doing so. If you've had any type of service within the last 60 days, you will screw over the tech if you call, as he'll be charged with a Repeat Trouble Call.

    So, as long as you understand what you are doing, and/or come here for help instead of to Dish, move away.

    NOTE: unplug your receivers and let them spin down and cool off a bit before moving them, and be VERY careful with the HDMI connections, which are very weak on the 622.

    About the only exception to this would be IF you were configured to backfeed the RF modulated output from a 622 via the SAT line and then to another room in your home.

    In that scenario, IF you move your 622 to another room you would have to do some re-cabling possibly to make things work right.
