I was wondering if anybody has heard if the 921s are hitting dealer shelves, yet? I think I was reading someplace that they were, but I was in the middle of reading it and got called away for work and forget where I was reading it.

On a related note, my 811 was delivered and I can not wait to get home and play... I hope that it brings in two additional channels, which have have multipath interference from other channels.

No not hitting dealer shelves yet, however I understand they are being released to the warehouses from Packout.

Well, that is at least some good news. I thought that I had read that somebody had an install scheduled. So, if they are hitting the warehouses, it will probably be a week or two before they hit the shelves in some sort of limited quantities, based upon past rollouts.

Well I'm predicting the 19th. That's the date that Charlie gave for the move of the HD channels to 110 and obviously he was confused over another date in his head.

December 15?

I just got an e-mail in response to my message to ceo@echostar.com.

"Thank you for your email. We have set the release date for the model 921 receiver at December 15, 2003. It should be available to the public shortly there after. "


I sent the e-mail with a number of other questions the day after the chat.

I even proposed paying now for a 921 and agreeing to accept a loaner 811 or 6000 until they are available. (Hoping for HiDef by Christmas).

For some reason they didn't respond do my suggestion. :rolleyes:

My guess: Distributors get them Monday 12/15. Dealers get them 4 days later. FedEx starts delivering first batch to customers on 12/22.

Ho Ho Ho for maybe 100 eager beavers.......

I'm still hoping to be one of them.

Forget that... How is it being delivered? And what is the tracking number?
