    Does anyone know the cost of a new customer install for a 622? My wife and I are moving in two weeks and we are already going to put the new account in her name since the current one is in my name. What kind of deals do they have for new customers?

    Not worried about that on my end... I have my original 301 and a 510 currently. I've been holding off on HD the past year specifically due to the mpeg4 issues, etc.

    We did call DISH this morning. The first CSR we spoke with didn't speak English terribly well and after we told her what we were looking for she told us we could order it right now. A little suprised we said "um, ok" but after a couple minutes we discovered the CSR was attempting to order a 522 for us. "Thanks, but no thanks... we said 622. That's SIX - TWO - TWO." At that point the CSR told us she didn't know what receiver we were talking about.

    'hung up and called a second a time and got a CSR who immediately knew what we were talking about. Said yes they are definitely available for order starting tomorrow. She had no guarantee as to what time the 622 would show up in their systems but she said they're open 24-7 so we're free to call them at 12:01 CST to find out if we can order them then. She said there are some questions as to what qualifies for the rebate in April (she thought any receiver qualified) but I wasn't interested in all that as I don't have a 921 or 942 and I plan on getting my 622 ASAP. I've had an HDTV over a year without any HD satellite. I'm ready NOW!

    This is one of those odd situations where the new customer deal and the existing customer deal is the same: $299 to get a leased ViP-622. The only difference is that existing customers with 921s or 942s who wait until April 1st will get a rebate.

    You might save on programming by being a 'new customer'. Most of their offers are expiring today. New offers tomorrow?

    Thanks for the info James. I just got off the phone with a CSR and he confirmed that the recieved should be available for order tomorrow 2/1, He told me that he didn't see any problem with me getting one and having it installed when I move on 2/11. Since I couldn't order one today he took down my TN and said he would call me tomorrow as soon as the reciever becomes available.

    So what about someone like me that wants to view HD on both TV1 and TV2? The 622 will not work because only one TV input can output HD, right. My only choice would be to get two 622s?

    Because a 211 is not a DVR?

    Then two HD DVRs would be necessary. Dish does not have a dual HD TV output DVR.

    Just learned no 622s are supposed to ship yet due to this mentioned fault awaiting an upgrade.

    So no Dish for me.

    Anyone know if the receiver will come with an hdmi-dvi adapter?? My tv only has a DVI-D input. Just want to know if I should run to the store or not and pick one up.


    Thanks

    According to the Tech Portal it does come with the adapter, so you should be fine.

    Hey James,

    As I read it, the 622 OTA tuner only supports digital 8VSB stations not analog as the 942 did. Is this correct? :confused:

    Very correct. While sometimes errors creep into product descriptions, that has been constant - no OTA analog (just like the ViP-211).

    Thank You and another question. The back of the 622 shows the "Home Distrabution" output shows the Air Numbers (21-69) but the information page states the following:

    (1) Shared modulated TV Set stereo output (TV1, TV2) ch.21-69 Air, ch.73-125 Cable

    Do you know which is correct?

    Both.

    21-69 OTA frequencies match up to 73-125 CATV frequencies.

    Does anyone have a pointer to download the manual for the 622? Would the 942 manual be the same as the 622?
