Someone just got "smart" and figured out a way to spearhead the upgrade cycle while giving them time to work out the encoding kinks and stop losing anymore HD ground to D* as they roll out more HD LIL markets.

volfan615 said:Maybe you missed the chat where Charlie stated that Mpeg4 was going to be further off and that Turbo 8psk (or what ever it is) was going to be the solution for the near term. He stated that there just wasn't that much gain right now with MPEG4. If I remember correctly that was only a couple of months ago.
While I respect your position, and tend to agree in general, customers who chose to lease from Dish Network certainly appear to be getting to best deal in this instance.stone phillips420 said:LEASES JUST SUCK IMHO

Maybe this is one case where a lease doesn't "suck," and a better alternative may be to return your purchased 942 (still within the 30-day period) and opting for a lease.
Easy for me to say as a happy leaser.

BTW, why do you guys want to own your boxes so bad? It's not like you've got bigger HDD's in them or spongebob stickers on them or anything...What's the big reason for not wanting to have to send it back?
