Hawk spotted the newest HD DVR from Dish Network at CES last week and it looks pretty sweet. Like the ViP 221
, the ViP 622 is MPEG-4
compatible but adds a 250GB hard drive for your time-shifting pleasure. That sounds like a large capacity drive, but it
can only hold up to 25 hours of high-def. At this point in the hard-drive life cycle, we're a tad disappointed that Dish
didn't opt for more storage. The other barely adequate spec is dual tuner situation. The 622 only contains one HD and
one SD tuner; even the older Dish models like the 921 and 942
enabled three tuners.
