Yea I got that notice of the lawsuit also. I sold my dishplayer/webtv along time ago though...I can't remember having any issues with it though other than trying to log on to my webtv interent account was a waste of time, as it was horribly slow.
I got one of those also. Does that mean if you had a 7100 and a 7200 you get $100 credit? I sold my two dishplayers a couple of weeks ago, right before getting a smartcard swapout for my 6000. It looks like i sold them in the nick of time.
I got my notice in the mail the other day (no claim form included). I did have a 7200 until this past Nov when I took the 510 upgrade offer for a free 510 for a two yr commitment. Don't know how I would use the benefits that are being offered in the class action. Just taking a wait and see attitude.
We also received one of these mailings, interesting how they were able to track us down.
When we moved two years ago, we had shutdown our E* service and I had boxed up the DishPlayer and put it away.
We've been running for almost a year now on a new account with a 301 and DP Dish500 setup. If we wanted to re-add our older DishPlayer 7200 back into our account, should we expect any problems?
Also what equipment, such as a dish pro adapter would we need to purchase? Has the software improved any since we used the DishPlayer several years ago? When we moved we used to have black out city with frequent hard resets of the 7200. Also would we be charged a monthly fee for the PTV features, or are all Displayer's now provided the PTV service for free?
We received a letter the other day with the claim form.We have a 7200 still in service,that is what
