    Nice!! Given I have a learning remote having the ability to discrete on and off is a nice thing to have.

    I did not notice this in any of the previous 622 threads....They are showing a s-video output on TV1. There are no s-video outputs on the 942.

    I suspect this is an error, I don't see why they would change this for the 622 if the 942 already does this.

    There are extra outputs, they maybe refering to the S-Video or other outputs..

    Here are my questions....about the 642. I have an 811 in the living room with the HD TV and a 522 in the bedroom. This is where I get confused. :confused:

    Can I use the 642 in the living room (TV 1) and bedroom (TV 2)?

    Would I be able to get the HD channels on TV 2?

    How on earth do I run RCA cables from the 642 to the bedroom?....which probably answers my first question! :nono2:

    Thanks!

    If you look at other receivers, i.e. 942 and 921, it says the same thing. I'm guessing it's a common bit of text that is shared and probably just out of date. I know it does HD channels on the 942, I use it regularly. I'm sure it will be the same on the 622.

    Did the 921 at one time only support PIP for SD? If so that might be where it originated from. I only had a 921 for a couple months last spring before the 942 came out, I can't remember if that was the case or not.

    At CES I was told that the 622 will do PIP with HD channels but the "non-active" (i.e. smaller pic) will be displayed in a 4:3 ratio NOT a 16:9 ratio. But when you do a swap they will reverse (i.e. main screen 16:9 and smaller pip 4:3).

    921 does NOT do PIP in HD.

    That could be the source of the SD comment in that section then.

    Many companies do not proofread their manuals before releasing them... and often the writers of the manuals are not supplied correct information. It is amazing sometimes how writers of technical manuals will be asked to write manuals sometimes before the product is even completed its design... then the engineers will sign-off on the manual content... and it may or not reflect what the hardware actually does!

    I didn't see it in the specs, but does anybody know if the 622 does name based recording (Dish Pass?)?

    Yes the 622 will do NBR just like the 942.

    I have a friend with E*. Will he have to get a new dish in order to receive MPEG4 HD channels? Thanks.

    Yes depending on were you live. Most people will need the Dish 1000, unless you live in the northeast. Then you would need a second Dish aimed at 61.5.

    Well, that sucks! This is one of my favorite features of the 942 when I'm watching on gameday. Grrr. I really hope this is incorrect. Can anyone else verify this?

    Dish 1000 gets 110/119/129 sat. If you live in Phoenix, Arizona then a dish 1000 is all you will need for both hd and sd programming. The 61.5 sat will be for parts of the country in the North east and Southern Texas and most of Florida as the 129 sat can't be seen from those areas.
