    DVR functions that could be disabled

    Dish filed their response on the stay today. That should be some interesting reading once it's available. The link I posted above should have it by tomorrow I would think. I read somewhere that Google would make sense as a possible buyer of Tivo. I believe Tivo has a poison pill which would...

    DVR functions that could be disabled

    The problem they have is they were found to be in contempt of a previous order. The judge found that their "work around" still infringed and he's not too happy about it. Damages are typically trebled (at least) for willful infringement. I don't think the boxes will be shut off, but I think $3...

    811 vs. 6000 Why is the 6000 so expensive?

    They must be able to hack the yellow cards too. I just sold mine for 560.

    Geez Scott, given E*'s track record lately, that's one huge if about the 922. Will it work? Will it be delayed for a year and a half? Will I still be a dish customer? Well, the answer to that is known, I had cable installed last week. Selling my equipment soon.

    SatelliteGuys 921 Review

    Does the 921 show locals (not ota locals, but the ones from dish) with their actual channel number like the 301 does? I'd much prefer to punch in channel 7 on my remote instead of 8772 like I have to with the 6000.

    Do I need to change my distant local to Atlanta for CBS?

    Thanks guys. I thought I had lost my cbs, but I guess since I signed up for CBS-hd I got the sd version on 243 too as a distant local. I guess that's what I pay 1.50 for. Can you sign up for CBS-HD with out signing up for the distant local?

    Is it better to wait?

    After this extended Q/A hold, which should be coming to an end soon I hope, it better work a whole lot better. I think you'll be ok, if you really want one. I wouldn't buy any of the ones off of ebay, since they were put out before the hold and may have all of the initial bugs.

    What will I need to upgrade to the 921

    I had the same setup except I had a 301 and a 6000. It took me a while to get the proper advice that is included above, but eventually I figured out that the best way to go is to go Dishpro. I am replacing my only legacy receiver, the 6000 with a 921 so I don't need the adapter. I got a dp...

    SW44 vs. SW64

    Well that just sucks eggs. Well, looking at ebay It looks like it won't cost me quite as much as I thought if might to go dishpro. There are no dp singles on there right now. I can pick up a dp twin for about $35 with shipping. The funny thing is that I currently have a dp34 in my...

    SW44 vs. SW64

    All these different switches are driving me nuts. OK, I have two legacy LNB dishes for 3 satellite locations. I currently have them going to two sw21's to feed two receivers (301 and 6000). I think I figured out that to add one more line for a third receiver (actually a second input to a 921...
