The 722K, a dual satellite tuner model, is virtually identical to the 722 except for the following:

1. Noticeably better HD and SD picture quality than previous generation ViP's. (ViP 922 is also reported to have noticeable better PQ).

2. Different chip-set from previous generation ViP's are, among other things, supposed to make it easier to work with Sling functions and external devices yet to be released.

3. The optional MT2 OTA module allows for receiving and recording up to 2 ATSC OTA local broadcast channels at the same time in HD.

The interface of the 722K is exactly the same as the 722. Operationally, it is identical to previous ViP boxes. The most compelling reason to get a 722K and its greatest advantage is the capacity for it to record up to 4 HD channels at the same time.

First, the 722K does NOT come with an ATSC OTA (for your digital local broadcasts)demodulator installed--as is the case with previous ViP's, but those can only receive ONE ATSC OTA channel. For about $30, you can purchase the MT2 OTA demodulator directly from Dish Network (if you are having it installed, the installer can install the OTA demod), from an on-line Dish Network retailer (usually less expensive), or from your local Dish Network retailer in your neighborhood.

Since the 722K does not come with the MT2 pre-installed, you will need to install it yourself, but it is an extremely easy thing to do. Follow the directions that come with the MT2. All you have to do is unscrew a covering, then gently slip the MT2 module into place. DONE!

Now, you will need to connect the MT2 to an external antenna to receive your digital local broadcasters.

I installed and manage a number of these units for our Emergency Operations at work. I also have one at home. We struggled through some software issues with the earlier versions of this product and with the VIP 622. Most issues with the VIP 622 and 722 were resolved many months ago and are no longer a concern. Be aware that the hard disks last about 18 to 24 months. Then the unit needs repair. Dish sends out a replacement if you took the protection plan. If not, there is a nominal charge to replace a defective unit with a refurbished unit.

The units function as advertised and serve us well in the Emergency Centers. I give it a real workout at home. The units do like to be turned of for a couple of hours each day to reconstitute themselves. Otherwise they need periodic rebooting. They need plenty of ventilation as they put out as much heat as a 40 to 60 Watt lightbulb. With that type of energy useage, even when they are turned off, they cannot be Energy Star rated; and neither can their competitors' units. Keep them cool, as with all electronics, and they last longer.

The 722ks are great machines with the caveat that the hard drives will fail at some point; and you will usually lose all stored content. This is no different than a disk failure in your PC. When it happens, and it will, it is a real pain. You can connect a back-up portable disk if you have critical content. There is a small, one time fee to open the USB port for the external disk.

You will not be displeased with this product.

After digital over-the-air signals axed TVGOS programming downloads (and time signal) to our Panasonic DVR with hard drive, we finally broke down and signed up for Dish Network's offer for free HD upgrade with $6/mo DVR fee (with 2 yr commitment, etc.) -- specifying the 722k. I'm not a big fan of renting equipment, but for some reason (digital licensing issues?) we haven't able to find a DVR with digital tuner and hard drive for a reasonable price. Since the $6/mo fee applies whether you use your DVR or theirs, and since the hard drive seems to have a limited life (though the Dish rep said it depends on how much TV one watches (obviously) -- some hard drives might last 5 years), I figured renting is reasonable -- $72/yr for 2 to 5 yrs is $144 to $360 -- not far from the ~$350 Amazon is asking. And if your hard drive goes out after 2 years, you send it back to Dish and get another for a nominal shipping fee.

Ours worked fine right out of the box. Features have been well described in other reviews. Heat's not an issue with ours, and it's not overly noisy. It shuts "off" when not in use. What's really neat, though is that we can record (or select a recorded program to view) from the 2nd TV, making use of the UHF remote. Finally, it's so nice to be able once again to select what to record from the on-screen guide rather than having to set up a manual recording. And we can still use the Panasonic for watching DVDs. Incidentally, the "free" upgrade to HD gave us additional channels above the 120 pkg we'd been getting.

If your thinking of buying this DVR,call DISH NETWORK first,you can probably get it for free with 2 yr agreement.Ive had DN for 6 months now and I love it.Great price,15 dollar discount every month for 1 yr.This DVR works on 2 tvs (one HD and one SD).The DVR is only 6 dollars a month.I had Time Warner DVR and it cost me 17 dollars a month and was no where near as good as this one.The remotes that come with the Receiver are probably the best Ive ever had.You can point another remote at them and it will learn the commands of the remote.I highly recommend DISH NETWORk over cable.
