Ditto. I have a UPS on each of my Vip622's. I also have all of my high end electronics on UPS. Brownout = No problemphrelin said:I know that not everyone has a backup power supply on their ViP system. But I really can't overstate what one can save in grief. This morning I was transferring about 5 hours of programming to my external hard drive when about half way through the process we had a 2 second power outage. I can't image what a mess I would have had if both the 722 and the EHD were not on a backup power supply.
