Default Buy vip622 & change to compatable w/cable?

Hello, Brand new here with a question. I understand the rules disallowing any discussion of hacking, so trying to ask within the rules here and not asking for anything that would be illegal or unethical. If this is an off-limits topic, I apologize and will stand corrected.

I have Dish Network now with DVR vip622. I pick up local HD channels with this along with SD and HD package thru DishN. I am thinking of changing to a local cable company (a community-owned municipal utility!). I've inquired with both DishN and and this local Co., and I've done a bit of research here in this forum and elsewhere online. I know that the vip622 will work fine picking up just local HD stations OTA, but that it is not compatible to work with another cable or satellite company. So my question:

If I buy the vip622 outright, is it possible to change it to be compatible with another cable company? If so, where might I find how to do? I believe that this is legal and ethical to do as I have asked both DishN and my local cable Co. and they both say no problem as far as they're concerned as long as I own it outright. Incidentally, I talked with a tech dude at my local cable Co. and he's familiar with both their DVR and the DishN 622, and he says the vip 622 is far superior. Of course, he cannot offer any info or advice on my question posed here.

Thanks for any responses, and, again, if this question is not allowed, I'll understand.

In short the answer is no, the ViP will not work with or on any other system.
