    Why is Dish shutting down the 721?

    I got a letter that I need to call in for a free replacement receiver. They said my 721 needed to be replaced with a 522? But my 508 was fine. Is the 721 really that outdated?

    Guide not working on my 721

    I can't get the guide to display on my 721. I push the guide button on both my remotes.....nothing. I try to access it from the menu.......nothing. It looks like I can access everything else. I rebooted the machine twice. Still nothing. JC

    New feature on 721

    With this last firmware update, it no longer spins down the HD, it now shuts down the whole machine. I like this feature alot better. I also found out that with the machine off it will still record programmed events. JC

    921 hookup

    If you only hookup tuner, will it make it a pain to use? My in-laws have a 2 tuner DirecTivo. They only hooked one tuner and they always got messages telling themto hook up the other one. Very annoying. JC

    921 gamble

    I am so torn. I really want the 921. But, as a previous DishPlayer owner, and reading the 721 problems, I am afraid that I will get a unit that will never end up working as advertised. Even after months of updating software. What are the rest of you doing?

    The specs say the the Dish Wire is for select firewire products. Do we have any idea what that will be? (Like Mitsubishi TV's) JC

    921 price

    I've looked all over, what is the price on the 921? I might just go fot it. Also, why does the SuperDish need to be installed by Dish? Why can't I just get it installed by someone I trust that is more reliable to show up for the appointment on time?
