Ok on to hardware,

The 811 there was a problem with a component on the 811 so they needed to fix the problem, 811's should be available again by May.

The 921 is fixed and production should start going out in about 10 - 15 days.

SuperDISH's are still in short supply, but they say they are catching up.

DishPro adapters are in short supply but they hope to have a lot available soon.

Dish has a 510 upgrade available for Existing Customers. Existing customers can also get a remanufactured 501 now, however for a 501 they must pay an additional upgrade fee because the 501 does not have to pay DVR fees. Customer will pay $149 for a reman 501. (A 510 is $99)

That is it from News and New Promotions. Now they are taking questions.

The big news is NO YES network on Dish.

Both are crappy news. I am a diehard Yankee fan and I own an 811.

I'd like to know what we are seeing in the 811 that is caused by this bad chip. Is it memory and having effects on the guide? Is it a video processor giving us the bad SD conversion, or black picture?

Yeah I am going to go in later and capture the audio of Jim talking about the bad component and put it online.

Perhaps there will be a recall on the 811's. Its hard to know what Jim means....

(PEOPLE DON'T PANIC THERE IS NO RECALL YET!! NOR WAS THE WORD RECALL EVER SAID)
