Pros: Dual DVR function
Cons: UHF remote range, USB 1.1
Summary: I've been using a Dish 522 DVR for over two years. It's been a work horse in out house driving two TVs in to different areas of our house with two completely different viewing tastes.
Don't know how we lived without a DVR before.
The UHF remote does work a floor away, but not much further. It's possible that we've got some metal ducts blocking the signal.
The USB port is version 1.1 which makes it too slow for any real use. The software does not support file copying like the newer USB 2.0 DVRs from Echostar.
