1. Is the ViP612 having the momentary audio dropout problems on ABC and Fox in many locations currently being experienced on the 622/722?
2. How does the ViP612 differ from the ViP722 other than the size of the drive and the 2nd TV output?
3. The thread for the latest software release on the ViP612 is incredibly quiet. Does the current software release (L6.01) have no significant glitches?
In a week I'll be eligible to upgrade my 508's to an HD DVR, which would be my second HD DVR. I added a ViP722 a year ago. I had put off going to HD because there were so many initial problems with the ViP622 and, more importantly, my equipment and home theater color scheme is black-on-black and until the ViP722 that wasn't available. Now both the ViP722 and the ViP612 are available.
Simple logic says that I should get a ViP612. I don't need a second TV output. I don't need the larger drive as I have 3 EHD's. And, as I understand it, with the ViP612 I'll be replacing the two extra receiver charges currently on my two 508's with one extra receiver charge and a lease fee while a second ViP722 would get me two extra receiver charges and a lease fee.
Additionally, I'm having the audio dropout problem on my ViP722. I see no mention of it on the ViP612 threads, so I could record Bay Area ABC and Fox shows on a ViP612.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
