Bought the 922 to replace my 722 because of updated menu and larger hard drive. I should of read the reviews. The 922 has been discontinued by Dish TV. They won't say why but many have complained about the unit freezing up,screen shrinks to a PIP size often, takes 20-30 min. to reboot after freezing up or resetting after another problem. Dish TV replaced the one I bought under warranty... and 3 more times in 4 weeks! I am going to sell it and buy the 722 instead of leasing. If it wern't for that it would be a good DVR as the menu and guide are very smooth operating and much easier to use. I had my leased 722 for almost 6 years and never had a problem. Bottom line is that the 922 was a good idea but Dish TV never bothered to resolve it's software issues. All they want to push now is the Hopper probably because the monthly user fees they charge are much higher than the 722.
very good reciever. the dvr is excellent also the building sling took the reciever to another level. i was surprised how easy the sling to set up to my dish anywhere app.
Receiver works as advertised. But wait until you(in the living room) and your wife(in the bedroom) are watching both TV1 and TV2, and one of you tries to record a third show. I called Dish for help, and was told Sorry, we can't help you.
I was grateful for them giving me the 922 when I signed up for Dish, but now I'm not so sure.
The DVR VIP922 with Slingbox loaded is the best invention going for watching your own TV on any computer, iphone or ipad anywhere, anytime.
Awesome e receiver. Works grat, could not get second receiver from dish withou paying full price. Totallynridiculous!
Improved menu visuals and plus the great feature of dish remote access. More elegant than previous models.
This is by far the best DVR on the market today. I love it. Not only can I Record up to two shows at the same time or watch one recorded show while recording two others. I can also watch live or recorded TV on my PC, iPone or iPad Anywhere with the Slingloaded feature. I just hooked the VIP922 to an available port on my router. I can even watch live TV through the 3G network on my iPhone so if your somewhere where where there's no wireless you can still watch.
Did I also mention that it has 1TB of hard disk space. Also the new UI makes it a breeze navigating through the the VIP922.
This thing was well worth the investment so if you have a Dish Network account and a Broadband Connection get the VIP922. It's amazing.
