I plug my existing cable line in the back of the 622? Would I be able to get channels? I ask this because I can get 2 local HD channels through the cable, but they are on channels 88.1 and 114.1. I would love to have the ability to DVR off the cable signal. Thanks a bunch.

The answer is some of the time. It depends on the type of Cable. Most analog cable's will work. None of the digital cables. Note that you set your Cable type on the HDTV setup screen.

How can that be? The 622 doesn't have a NTSC (analog) tuner.

As Bill R notes, the 622 doesn't have an analog tuner. Furthermore, receivers which do have an analog tuner and/or external inputs, e.g. the 921, don't have the capability to record analog signals. The only things they can record are digital broadcasts, by simply saving the unmolested stream to disk.

Anyhow, no, this isn't going to work.

The only way it would work is if the cable company was passing through ATSC signals. Most opt for QAM.

That being said, I don't expect your ViP-622 to catch fire if you connect your cable service to the ATSC input on the 622 (but if it does I'm not taking responsibility).

622 couldn't find any cable HD channels, the TV could and the 622 tuner is working from an antenna so it has be the cable co I have is using QAM not ATSC.
