probably not just another one time 39.99 fee is my guess as 211 ehd didnt fall under previous ehd support(622 722)
That would be nice. Adding EHD to a 222k would essentially make it a ViP622 wouldn't it? I wonder why Dish would rather have us do that and charge $40 then have us get a 622 and charge $6 DVR Fee monthly for the rest of your contract?
To be competitive. Also, the EHD units will most likley almost NEVER (or at lease very many years) have to RMA'd. Right now, Dish spends a lot of $$$ replacing (often at no cost to the subscriber) DVR's mostly because the HDD has failed and the box is otherwise working perfectly (well, for Dish, that is). In fact they have huge plants that do nothing by RMA work and it costs big $$$. Now imagine a box that has no moving parts, will likely last the lifetime of the subscriber--or many years--and when the attached HDD fails, it's the customer's problem to go out and buy thier own replacement EHD, not Dish's.
Great points. I hope you're right.
Call me crazy, but I don't think the 222 is ever going to get EHD support. The 222k will, but not the silver 222.
