Not upset? I could chew thru nails when I think about the whole mess.
To think they will make new channels available on 2/1, but I have to wait for April for the breadcrumb they threw at 942 owners...and if I even think about upgrading my 811 on 2/1 to a 211, then I even screw that possibility, and would have to shell out full price to get a 622. IMO the whole thing reeks for current HD subs.
I love the chance to HAVE new HD channels, but since they clearly have the capacity in the short term (since the channels will continue in MPEG2 for an as yet undetermined amount of time), and since they are creating an artificial demand for product they clearly dont have enough of, they should make the channels available in "preview" to the existing equipment, AT LEAST until supply of new receivers is substantial enough to meet demand, AND they are prepared to make the offcers to existing subs (not 2 months after launch)

But what bothers (and surprises) me the most is the apparent level of complacency of many here. For us to be put on the back burner for even a few weeks is an outrage and I'm willing to bet it's going to be a lot longer than that but there's such an "oh well, Dish did it again" attitude around here I could scream.

I feel very strongly that the department heads at dish are severely mentality challenged.
I mean come on surrender owned equipment for new mpeg4 leased equipment and pay a nominal upgrade fee
But apparently they might have followers dtv as well
seems to me their shooting themselves in the foot
id be happy to surrender my owned 942 for a owned 622, id even pay the bs nominal upgrade fee
i just don't think the above will happen

Looks to me like Dish has worked out the details on the Vip211.
