Here's my sob sorry I've had my 622 since April 06' and been VERY happy with it hooked up to my 6 year old, now former, Mits 65" HDTV via component cables. Yesterday my new 65" 2008 Mits (65735) arrived and I tried to hook it up via HDMI with no success (tv wouldn't recognize the connection). So back to component for now and logged into my old trusted dbstalk site and quickly got up to speed on the 622 HDMI issues. My question is, how much better will the PQ look if I go through all the trouble (see below) of getting my HDMI connection to work? Is it really worth: 1. Calling Dish (and let's face it having to argue some), to either get a replacement 622 or more likely paying a bit to upgrade to a 722. 2A. Loosing all my DVR programing, much of which I can't rerecord given the SD channels (shows my kids watch over and over) I recorded them on are not part of my HD only package anymore. 2B. Saving all my DVR programing via EHD which I don't own so I'd have to buy new, on top of paying Dish the activation fee. At this point, I'm pretty happy with what I got and don't really want the hassle. However, given the great resources available here I thought it worth a post to get some thoughts. Who knows, maybe it'll help others out when the issue comes there way.
