As an installer you'll know that all of the good bargains happen when you first sign up. The HDTV stuff is supposed to hit the streets this month. So keep an eye out for their promotions. You should be able to get the 522/811 on DHP. not so sure about the 921 though.

Be a little patient and keep checking back throughout the month.

I read from a retail report that the 522 and 811 will both be available for new customers on the DHP. You could get either one on DHP or add a $100 upgrade fee to get both (2-year comitment). I'm anxious to see the promos for existing customers.

No mention of the 522 in Dish brochures received today

Local retailer gave me me the Dhp, regular offers and the brochure of the Superdish HD Receivers and HDTV monitors. No mention of the 522. Told him I was interested in the 811 and a 522. He said, " have not heard anything about a 522.

The DISH dual tuner DVR's are the 522, 721 & 921. The 522 is the only dual tuner DVR that will be offered to new customers on the DHP in the future. The 721 and 921 can be purchased through a retailer. The 721 is the only one currently in stock with retailers.
