FIRST LOOK: Dish 781 HD DVR Receiver
Today SatelliteGuys once again gives you another first look of another upcoming Dish Network receiver, the Dish Network 781.
Ok so maybe you have seen this receiver before...
ITS A DISH NETWORK 921 WHICH HAS BEEN REBRANDED THE 781.
While it will pick up Digital off air HD broadcasts it will not pick up HD signals from Dish Network.
This is the same thing they are doing with 811's in rebranding them 381 receivers. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE 381
So now we know what they are doing with all the 921's which are being traded in for 622's.
Still no word on what they are doing with the 942's.
More as we know it, and we also hope to have a spec sheet soon.
OMG ! Got it for $1000, give up to Dish for $199, now they will sell it back - how much ?!
No price yet.
I wonder if its legal for them to sell them as new, when they are not. Or will they be lease only? Only time will tell.
Ugh...These things were bad enough the first time around, now they want to offer them as a SD DVR with OTA.
I would still venture they 942s will be sold to Canada, everything from BEV is MPEG2 with no plans to change.
My god, it's the ATTACK of the UNDEAD Dish Receivers!
Just when we thought we were safe and that the old MPEG2 HD receivers had been safely buried, they coming up out of the ground!
How can they be stopped?
Perhaps we have to shoot them in their CPUs.
I wouldn't feel safe with one of these in my house. I just might wake up some morning to find a 781 or 381 munching on my brain.
Wow. I would have thought that E* would have wanted to put the 921 disaster to rest for good. Why revive a less than successful model? Wouldn't more money be spent on CSRs to support them than what its worth to reissue them?
