Dish Network Vip 722 HD DVR HD  Receiver (Dual-Tuner)

awarded by: C|NetPC Mag Editors Choice


The Dish Network Vip222 satellite receiver contains 2 individual HDTV tuners in one box. These Tuners are designated TV1 and TV2. TV1 is intended for use at a HDTV or Standard TV in the same room as the Vip222. The 222 has modulated outputs for both the TV1 and TV2 tuners. This allows for the easy distribution of TV1 and TV2 pictures throughout a house. The modulators operate on either UHF or CATV channels and are not HDTV signals. It is important to note that ViP222 cannot provide two HD TV outputs for two TV's the cable run and type of cable is the issue. TV1 must connect to the ViP222 using the analog HD RCA jacks or the HDMI port. TV2 connects only via a standard composite video jack (yellow) or the modulated output. All HD channels are down converted to standard definition before outputting to TV2.

Anyone considering the Dish Vip222 DVR receiver should give some consideration for the effective range of a UHF remote control. UHF remotes do have range limitations.  Unless you extend the range of the uhf antenna by using a diplexer this makes it unlimited reach,  Dish Network advertises a UHF remote range of 200 feet. However, that is though open air, and does not take into account the reduction in UHF remote range caused by walls and floors. Usually 1 normal wood framed floor or 2 walls is a safe assumption for effective UHF remote operation. UHF remote usable range is greatly reduced if passing through masonry or concrete walls or floors.
