So, I am going through a slight Dish hell right now. My vip722 is having overheating issues, there is no way its running at the temps it says, but it makes it give the 355 warning. They sent me a replacement today. It came with a bad digital audio out socket, the cable wont stay in. I called them and they said they would overnight me another. I said tomorrow is Saturday and the guy said they deliver Saturday.
Of course that's not true in this case and tracking says Monday. So I spoke with them again and got $60 credit for 12 months, $5 bucks a month off. This isn't the 1st time I have had to replace my 722. I am running it with the cover off just so it wont overheat. I have a feeling the temp sensor is screwed up, cause its not very hot to the touch at all.
Has anyone ever taken the hard drive out of their old one and put it in the new one just to save all the recordings? I am planning on doing that. Its not hard to do, just hoping it will work, which I think it will.
