NO. Don't look for it to be free till a newer receiver is released. Maybe when the vaporware "923" receiver,that Charlie talked about on the chat, comes out.

DEFINITELY , the 922 has been the biggest let down receiver that DISH has come out with since the 921 pvr : A $1000.00 bricked receiver. I have decided to avoid all receivers with a 9 or 92 at the beginning of their model number from now on, just to be safe.

5, 6 and 7 haven't been all that lucky either if my memory serves, I have owned several pieces of junk beginning with those numbers, along with some keepers. :)

Frank not only do you make me laugh every morning now I get it on our days off! You know you dont want a 922 cause you want that stupid Google TV. But I do agree it should be free cause it has not been that popular and it wont be for $200 bucks! So I am with you all I want a 922 but not for $200 bucks and only for the Guide screen cause it looks way better!

Google TV works with the 922. Read through the forums. I figured if it was finally free, it would save me the $100 for the sling adapter.

Glad to see you got your signature figured out. You need a OTA mod.

What do they mean when they say "free" when there is a monthly fee? I understand the $200 but is there a monthly fee for the 922?

There is a $10/month 922 DVR fee (vs $6 for other DVRs)

Free as in not paying the $200 fee. Which, BTW...I spoke to loyalty about one. She tried to tell me "Sir, the $200 is an employee only pricing. Its $400 for anyone else" My reply...you really dont wanna take that information on with me. lol. I'll prove you wrong. I'm a DNS tech and a Dish nerd.

I'm holding out until 1 Feb, then i'll make the decision to add a sling to my 722 or buy the 922. Reason for feb...
1) maybe something will happen at the CES (highly unlikely)
2) I wont have the extra money until 1 feb. lol!

Nope, still $200, but I manage to get them to give me $10 off a month for 12 months, and a waived tech visit fee (since they require a tech install for the 922). That at least brings the cost to only $80.

Installed 1 for a guy who got the 200 dollar credit! He got the free HD upgrade letter inthe mail and already had all hd and they waived the $200 bucks. He came to the door and I asked the million dollar question how did you get them to waive the $$$$$?Haha it wont happen again I bet
