I've never seen an E* receiver at work.....I'm going down to my brother's this weekend. He has the HD model that can work 2 TV's at once. I'm interested to see how it compares to my HR20 & HR21.Ron Barry said:You can only wish Krock.. Sorry guys.. Thats what happens when you cut and past and are at work preparing for a production push yourself. Thanks for the heads up and it has been corrected.
Yes it can do that... It has the Manual Timer, Daily, Weekly timers and the Named Based Recording.MGoBlue said:How do you guys like your 612's? I'm getting Dish (Turbo HD Gold) with a 612 installed on Saturday morning, can't wait!
Can it set manual recordings? Like if I wanted to cap the Big Ten network from 12-9PM straight?
This is the comment I've been waiting for. My 722 is great, but I don't use TV2 and have 3 EHD's. So to replace my two 508's, a 612 seemed like a logical choice as soon as I was sure most of the bugs were worked out. Thank's for saying that!Polardog said:I'm now running L6.00.
The VIP612 is perfect for my 1 TV home. I've no interest in PIP. Theres plenty of space on the hard drive for both SD and HD recordings.
I've had a love/hate relationship with my 612.
Didn't like the 612 when it was first installed in Feb '08. Too many glitches.
I'm happy to say I love the damn thing now. Each software update has improved performance.
I'd say it's a good box, an excellent DVR and very user friendly.
I heard it was called offfredp said:Ron, better correct the headline.. Dish Network / DirecTV - VIP-612.....
Last time I looked they hadn't merged yet!
