First time I have heard of this happening. Does the receiver worked as expected?

Mister, no HD the 622 - it is still 622 !

Your pseudo-DVR have normal 222 config: by that "VAED" I can tell you it is 222 and "L307" been spooled to 222 only.

New step - open a cover and post a picture of PCB, at least that spots where are labels with HW config and SN placed.

I can't believe someone put 222's PCB inside the 622 case ! Could be.

More likely that someone put a 622 door on a 222 receiver. Silk-screening aside, they're the same part. Check the sticker on the back of the receiver.

Certainly he should check the sticker's. Really the question is did he order/pay for a 622 or a 222.

Note the number of lights on a 222 are different so its not just a 622 door.

If this is a lease (not one the original poster owns) then I hope he doesn't open it up and create a problem with Dish as a result.

Very weird situation though... I wonder if it is just a wrong door installed on a ViP222.

IF it were possible to somehow load ViP222 firmware onto a ViP622 and have it function, then he probably wouldn't have any recording options because that part of the code wouldn't be there even if he physically had a hard drive inside the covers.

I'd say if he is paying for a ViP622 DVR, then get this taken care of ASAP... if it is just supposed to be a ViP222, then at least he isn't being ripped off BUT I still recommend taking care of the inconsistencies because I'd be afraid if he ever turned it back in to Dish they might not believe he has returned the correct receiver.

The lights on the front are the same as a 622 also, Originally I received a 222 it had problems early on. They sent this one out instead and said not to worry about the additional costs. Now I see why lol.
The ones I see are different. Four vs six lights. And they look different on the back as well.
