The unit [...] was very easy to install. However I had a professional installation of my receiver into a motorhome and the installer chose another way to integrate the over-the-air receiver so I did not need this unit. I was able to return it for refund [...]
It Has Its Limitations
The module is very easy to install and configure. It is a shame that Dish requires a separate unit unlike the Vip622 which had an OTA built in. I live in a fringe area. The outside antenna is pointed toward towers 42 miles away. I use a deep fringe directional antenna with preamp and amplified distribution system to power four TVs including the primary one attached to my Vip722 box. I have used
Great product at a great price.
Installed in a Dish Network VIP722K receiver. Integrates well into the system. Programming is simple and intuitive. Seems able to decode the off air program guide of some stations while not others.Seems prone to interference more so than other stand alone off-air digital converters. Specifically I have a ham radio packet station when transmitting caused blocking on RF ch8 while other converters

Just what I needed
This is a great product that is easy to install. Wonderful because Dish does not have HD local channels and this gives the HD and ability to record 4 channels.Sets up quick and easy.[...]
Easy Installation and Set-up
I put up a HD antenna some time ago had the signal feed in the house but not in use.After getting the Dish figured Id add local HD channels not supplied via satellite.Works perfectly after simple quick set up.When the Dish signal occasionally goes down my OTA signal still comes through - a plus.I have a dual channel (2 TV) Dish DVR but the second channel is limited to standard definiti
OTA Receive additional local stations
Local channels off air remain in native video format unlike satellite. Receive additional local stations and local sub-channels not sent to satellite. Turns a ViP222K & ViP 722k in to dual plus one tuner. Any combination of 2 record and 1 live source simultaneously.

[...] plug and play product.Thanks Solid Signal!
Excellent way to combine antenna + DISH receiver as all the DISH recording / programming / remote TV features are extended to the OTA channels.Would like more tuner sensitivity as compared with a stand alone digital tuner I also use which brings in a few more stations.
It works but....
It works and is convenient but does not pull in as strong a signal as the tuner in the tv itself so some channels are not tunable.Also since installing it the 722k receiver has started to randomly but periodically reboot itself.I presume this is due to the extra heat created by the additional tuner.On-line discussion boards indicate this is a common problem.
