Do I share the same receiver with two TVs.
All current Dish Network DVRs support two TVs. The second TV gets an SD (HD is down-converted) picture with MTS stereo sound.
Originally I was under the impression that my install would include a VIP622 and a standard DVR?
If you want a system like that, you need to tell them that you want a four-room system.

Other caveats:

o You need to make sure you have a phone line connected or you will be charged for an extra receiver
o A cable will be installed between the receiver and TV2, but it does not carry OTA signals. If you want OTA at TV2, you'll need to make additional provisions.
o Dish Network charges the $5.98 DVR fee for each DVR.

As I understood it, you don't get stereo sound through the coax cable with the standard install. Is that correct?
No. The TV2 output of the ViP622 is MTS stereo. The same is true of the 625.

Right but then would I be commited to four receivers with a monthly charge on each?
No. A four room system would be a ViP622 and a 625.

Fees would be on the order of $16.96/month for the two receivers.
