    Apparently channels 5500-5510 are for Hawaii and Alaska??? For some reason my 622 DVR wants to attempt to record these channels when they score a hit for a DishPass. The software does not let me lockout these channels.

    FYI. Response from Dish Tech desk: "Our engineering department is aware of this issue. It has been determined the issue is software related and we are actively working on a resolution." And "They are currently working towards a resolution for this issue. Unfortunately, we do not have a status report for this situation at this time."

    It all depends on how you accessed the program. If you go to the program via the DVR button you should not experience the problem. If OTOH you just go to the tuner that is being used for the recording without using the DVR button and rewind to the beginning, you will get abruptly dumped to "live TV" at the end of the timer. This is normal! When you don't use the DVR button to access the program you are watching the live buffer, not the DVR recording.

    Noticed Taco Lovers problem only once -- not sure how I accessed it. OTOH, I watch sports delayed 30-45 minutes all the time. I access by using the DVR button, and can never remember a problem. So maybe Michael P has it right.

    OK, here's my sad story of woe:
    - had a 622 with top 200 + silver hd + setanta + locals
    - wanted to change to locals + sentanta + dish hd gold
    - dish changed it
    - no hd at all
    - many hours over several days on phone - no fix.
    - 3 technicians over several days at house - no fix.
    - 2 receivers later - now have a vip 722 - no fix.

    The receiver keeps saying 'not activated for hd'...and in system info page, says vipxxx-SD....they turned off all went back to vipxxx-HD...yay!..then, we unplugged to cause download of new program guide...receiver went back to vipxxx-SD...I am thinking the Dish system and the current SW are not compatible with regards to the provisioning of HD only packages...They are having engineering check so i guess i'll wait a week or so possibly with only SD locals to see what they do.

    Other issue is though that HDMI no longer works through my Denon 3808CI amp from the VIP722 whereas it used to be fine on the VIP622. Anyone know of this issue and a way to fix?

    I would first try to directly connect it to your TV and see if that works. That way you will rule out a possible Bad HDMI port.
