Actually in the July Technical Chat someone said the 811 would be $299. Last night Charlie said the 811 (receiver alone) would be $399. That $399 price is the same price that was on last Friday's press release.
I talked to a Dish CSR this morning, he did some checking on the $199 deal and didn't see where it mentioned the 8VSB, he saw 8PSK but no 8VSB. He said it might be include but he couldn't see for sure it might say that. I've sent an e-mail to Dish to see if they can verify one way or the other. Maybe Scott can check through his sources.
