I just got off the phone with Dish technical support and asked what my options were on hardware upgrades to the 942. I am still a Dish customer with my account in idle mode. I asked if she had any information of what might happen with the Voom programming on 61.5 and she said there is a good possibility Dish will offer the Voom programming after May1. She also stated the encoding would be changed to be compatible with Dish hardware. She also added the 942 is compatible with MPEG 4 and the 942 purchase price to existing Dish customers is $299. Think I will do nothing until I hear what will happen to the Voom programming.
