Dish Network ViP HD DVR review

 

Dish Network ViP722

High capacity; receives and records new MPEG-4 AVC programming, including local and other HD channels not available on older receivers; dual-output mode for secondary TV; can record up to three HD shows simultaneously while playing back a fourth;...

Generally lighter selection of local HD and sports channels than cable; annoying interstitial pay-per-view page; defaults to "all episodes" for EPG-initiated recordings; uglier EPG and menu system than TiVo HD and DirecTV; no built-in networking...

The Dish Network ViP622 and 722 are among the most fully featured and versatile high-def DVRs you can buy today.

Consumer review (cnet.com)

"easy user interface, dual tuner recording."

 

In my case, the warranty is worthwhile.

free set up and install, reluctantly I agreed to the $6/mo service warranty.

Without the service warranty, dish will send you a replacement at standard shipping only, expect a substantial downtime.

"Somewhat Okay, When It Works (which is rarely)..."

 

If you like replacing equipment, spending hours talking to tech support, paying $507 for a leased DVR you'll never own, watching TV in nothing better than 1080i and losing all of your recordings every so often then this and Dish are for you. I spent 10...

Can use external drive to supplement storage size.

On 3rd 722 in 3 months.

"622/722 can not record and watch another DISH channel."

 

DISH and the 722 are great. Just understand that the DVR recording part has a 20 year old design and cannot record one program while you watch another live program.

Other than the DVR recording gotcha, the 722 is a great device. Great for USB photos, VGA PC screen. Great for supporting HD and SD TV channels and TVs.

Cannot record one channel while watching another live DISH channel.
