Dish telling me conflicting info ViP612/ViP622 difference?

07-04-2008, 06:14 AM
Dish Network will be installing a ViP612 or ViP622 tomorrow. When I called DN to order the HD/DVR I got conflicting info. 1 person said the 612 will not record one channel as I watch another. This person said I have to get the 622 for that feature. When I called back I was told the 612 will record one channel as I watch another. When I go to the DN web site and access ViP622 info it shows me ViP612 info.

So, can someone tell me the difference between the ViP612 and ViP622. Can I watch 1 channel while recording another? Also, what kind of cable comes with these boxes?

Both 612 and 622 has two tuners allowing both to record one program while watching another (actually, if you hook up OTA you can record a program OTA while the two sat tuners are busy), the 612 does not nave independent outputs while the 622 does. The 622 can run two tv's with each watching a different program, with the 612 if you hook it up to two tv's: both will be watching the same program.
