Forget the HDMI cable. If you had a bad one you wouldn't see anything.

About resetting the 622. You can either push the button or unplug it. You won't lose any of your settings. If that fails, I'd call Dish and let them work you through it.

I was having this issue as well:
UN60ES7100F Dolby Is Not Available (Grayed Out) Even Though I Have A Dolby Digital Source

That's another conversation. I am only trying to get the video working. I want to watch TV!! Banshee, Cosmos, Shameless, etc. frown.gif
I can handle the TV speakers for now.

Since your AVR is not HDMI, then connect an optical cable between the DVR and the AVR to get sound from the DVR. Connect HDMI between DVR and the Display/TV.

Which TV do you have?

I unplugged the 622 several times yesterday. Had two 20 minute advanced tech support conversations.

When I was jiggling the Dish satellite-in wires yesterday the video feed went in and out. Almost like those cables are going dead. Lose wires within the cable. The connections were all snugged tight so I don't think that's the issue.

Wish I could just stay home from work and trouble shoot all day. Have to exercise after work too. Maybe watching TV takes priority over exercising? LOL biggrin.gif

That's what I did. Must be a setting on the TV because I could not get Dolby Digital 5.1 to come through. I did get audio between my 5.1 system, it just wasn't DD 5.1

I have the Samsung UN55F7100AF. 55" LED 1080p 3DTV

I haven't tried going back to the component video route. I guess that's a process of elimination, if that works it must be an HDMI port issue. Either on the 622 or my TV.

I just read this statement from here http://www.highdefforum.com/dish-network-forum/115545-problem-622-receiver-hdmi-output.html

The 622 is notorious for having HDMI connections go bad.

You want to take one optical cable directly from the DVR to the AVR. No need to go to the TV at all. You will need to turn the TV sound all the way down if you are hooked up HDMI from the DVR to the TV. Just for jeepers, I'd replace the HDMI cable from the DVR to the TV. BTW, I had a Denon AVR a few years back that didn't have HDMI, only component. When I bought a new HDTV that had HDMI, I went HDMI from the DVR to the TV and optical to the AVR. I had audio sync issues. I actually bought a new Denon AVR that had HDMI in and out along with Auto Audio sync (AVR 2312CI)... It has worked flawlessly..... The Denon becomes the switch between the DVR, BD player, and ROKU....

Interesting. I should have known that tongue.gif

Good deal. Thanks for the input!

Don't know if this is correct forum for this question -

Is there a comparison anywhere of the following. [Concerning DISH, DTV, Comcast cable,ATT Uverse etc.]

1. Cost for comparable packages. I know everyone's pkg. offerings are diff., so this is hard. Also, have to use cable if only for internet since, like most locations, the cable company is the only provider of service fast enuf to watch video streaming.
2. Quality - All I've seen is that ATT Uverse has worse quality than the others.
3. I would rather buy equipment then be forced to rent - which is the only option for cable.

Personally, a low end channel offering would suffice for us.

My problem is solved (sort of.) Connected component video cables and I get a picture! So.. my ViP622's HDMI port is busted. I'll test out another box in a few days.
Read a lot of forums on the subject matter today. Numerous people complain that the HDMI ports are faulty and sensitive on the 622s. Hoping mine just was faulty and all will be fixed on the new box.

I haven't, but ESPNU showed up in HD last night, so I'm hopeful that the ball is rolling.

Elsewhere on the Interwebs, someone posted screenshots of Dish authentication working with the WatchESPN app on an Android device a few days ago, so it indeed looks like it's very close.

Disney on 172 is now in HD following an agreement with Disney. This deal may also result in losing the ability to Hop commercials on ABC owned channels.

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet, I am gonna be rich. Class action lawsuit being filed over FSN/FX. Just got the email.


You received this Notice because records indicate you were a customer of DISH Network L.L.C. (“DISH”) who 1) paid for a programming package for all or part of October, 2010 that included Fox Sports Net (“FSN”) programming and/or FX programming; and 2) did not receive a monetary credit equal to the value of such programming, which DISH failed to provide from October 1, 2010 to October 29, 2010. If you meet these criteria, you are a member of the class certified by the Court unless you choose to exclude yourself.

A class action lawsuit has been filed by Plaintiff Mike Padberg against DISH alleging that DISH breached its subscriber contracts and/or the duty of good faith and fair dealing by failing to provide subscribers with a monetary credit equal to the value of the FSN and/or FX programming that was not provided by DISH from October 1, 2010 until October 29, 2010. DISH denies these claims and has asserted numerous defenses to this action. The Court has not ruled on the merits of the claims or DISH's denial of the claims. To obtain additional information about the case, including the full class action notice, please visit www.PadbergDISHClassAction.com or call 1-888-968-7008 to request a copy of the full class action notice if you do not have internet access.

On July 11, 2013, the Court ruled that this lawsuit may be maintained as a class action, meaning that the case can proceed on behalf of all DISH customers who meet the criteria to be in the class. You have the choice to stay in the class or exclude yourself from the class. If you wish to remain in the class, you do not need to do anything. The Court has appointed lawyers to represent the class, so you do not need to hire your own lawyer if you wish to remain in the class. However, you may hire a lawyer at your own expense who can enter an appearance for you in the case if you so choose.

If you want to be excluded from the class, you must send a written notice including your name, address and a statement that you wish to be excluded from the class to: DISH Class Administrator; c/o Dahl Administration, P.O. Box 3614, Minneapolis, MN 55403-0614 or mail@PadbergDISHClassAction.com. To be effective, your exclusion notice must be received by the class administrator on or before July 2, 2014. If you do not exclude yourself from the class, the final outcome of the lawsuit, whether favorable to the class or favorable to DISH, will apply to you. If you exclude yourself, you will not participate in any favorable result from the litigation, but will retain all rights you have related to any individual claims you may have.

**Pursuant to 47 U.S.C. § 338(i)(4)(B)(ii), you are hereby notified that the Court has ordered DISH to disclose to counsel for the class on May 28, 2014 certain personally identifiable information of class members, including each class member's name, mailing address, e-mail address, DISH programming package, and the price of the DISH programming package, in connection with class counsel's further administration of the class and representation of the claims of the class members.

Yep, if you are an attorney. Otherwise, if this goes through, we may get a dollar. And that is being generous. biggrin.gif
