I've been using a 322 for the past few years and recently received a 222k. I'm not worried about the HD programming yet. My 322 was connected to Dish Pro Plus Twin LNB. I disconnected the 322 and connected the 222k. Started it up did the check switch, found 119, 110. It actually received some sort of download and then it told me to contact dish to activate. Spoke with dish, they advised me that it could not be activated because it needed to be connected to a dish 1000. I haven't yet acquired one of those yet. Is it really necessary? Is 129 really needed to activate? Is there a way to get around this for now so I can activate it and worry about the dish 1000 later?
