yes I have an appointment for thurs ahternoon for an 811 and 522!!My retailer did say that they were told by e* to let the customers know there is some bugs with the 522 but they will be fixed.He didnt know what the bugs were yet thuogh.I am so excited to see hdtv on my tv finally!!!Ill have to go pick up an antenna,maybee an amplified rabbit ear,seeing that I cant afford a big roof mount right now plus I dont live to far away from the towers.The installer is gonna laugh when he sees I'm a directv installer.I just dont have 400 in cash for a d* receiver and dont want to wait,so the dhp is perfect.Thanx to scott and everyone else for all the info I've been reading here for the last 2 months!!!!!I'll let everyone know how the install went and how the receivers work and what bugs are evident.

Lurch that is a loaded question LoL. That is what the 522 is designed to do and hopefully the software guys have it working right. You should go look at the 522 review under the Dish Network PVR/DVR forum in here it will give you more information.

If you go to 148 you'll get the HD-PPV channel but loose the demo (I'd rather have the PPV). If you qualify for the CBS HD feed 148 has only the LA feed, 61.5 has the NYC feed.

As to future programming, at this point I think any answer to that question is just a guess based on what Dish has done lately (assuming that there is any new HD programming until the new AMC-15 satellite goes up late 2004).

HERE TO HELP YOU!
If you have an extra dish 300 or direct tv dish, you can get them both (61.5 and 148) just use an a-b switch before the sw21. You will have to do a switch check every time you switch but 4 minutes is not a long time to wait if you missed a program on cbshd east and want to go to west, or checking for hd football.

Actually with an SW64 and an SW21 you can have 61.5/110/119/148 hooked up and get everything at same time.

The switchtest will show X X for the fourth sat (148) on mine, But it will work. You may get an ocassional switch error but still will work.

This works on the 6000 and 5xx models. Hopefully it will work on the 811 & 921. (I don't have either to test)

will I have any problem recording 2 shows at once on the 522?

What is your definition of "two shows at once"? Read down through this topic. It currently can only function like two separate single-tuner DVRs.
