Not everyone complaining here is an "early adopter." There were people who were sold on the 942 by E* as recently as January, right before E* announced the new receivers. So someone who purchased something for $700 in January to be told in February that it needed to be upgraded, I think has enough of a base for a complaint in my book.
I lease an 811, and I can STILL see where some of the people with 942's have room to be upset.
