"I wish I would have known about the HDMI problems"2.0 starson by nwmtrmouth
Pros: It was a great picture while it lasted. The DVR is easy to use and the over all features are great.
Cons: The HDMI connect was lost after one week. The picture switchs to zoom on its own. Runs hot
Summary: I had issues getting the 622 installed but that another story. I have been with DISH for 5 years and decided to upgrade to the 622. I had the receiver hooked up to our Sony 43" CRT rear pro. at first and the picture was ok. The tv was 4:3 and set up for 1080i but only had component cable hook ups. We purchased a Sammy HL 5687W 1080p and hooked it up via HDMI. The picture was out standing. The TV was everything the reviews said it would be. The picture in HD was amazing. WAS is the proper word here. The connection lasted 3 days and then went cows udder up. It didn't go all at once it would lose signal and a little shake of the wire would restore the picture. I called and ask waass up with this thing because I thought that it was an internal connetion of the cable. But the tech told me that it was a software problem.Now it does not work at all and we are back to component cables. Dish says that it will be a month or so before the can address that software poblem. But now I read that others have been waiting for months to have the same problem solved. I should have read the review and studied up like I do on all my other purchases. I am suprised that CNET rated the piece of equipment as high as they did, when this does not seem to be an isolated problem. This really sucks big time.
