I think the HDD in my ViP622 may be crapping out. The symptom is that during playback of a program recorded to DVR, the picture will freeze and the receiver will hang until I reboot it manually or it reboots itself after something like 10 minutes. If I go back to the recording that caused it to freeze and watch it again, it will freeze in exactly the same spot as before. Seems to me the only explanation is a damaged sector (not something like overheating).
So.... If I have to get the unit replaced, what should I do? Swap it out for another 622, or upgrade to the 722 or 922? Note that I have absolutely no interest in the Sling capabilities of the 922, so the 722 is probably for me, but thought I'd just put this question out there to see what people think.
One more thing... I have an antenna up and use the 622 to tune ATSC locals. I absolutely cannot live without that. Do the 722 and/or 922 have that capability?
