Sorry ,I know this sounds dumb,but I don't know what "Open TV' is. I own a 811 and just heard it will have this feature in a month or so. Thanks :)

The correct term for it is "Dish Home", formerly "Dish Interactive". For some reason, many members here like to use the term "OpenTV". I guess it makes them feel like they're in-the-know or something. (It's the brand name of the underlying technology of Dish Home.)

Actually, Dish used to call it OpenTV. I still have the box from my old 4900 receiver that lists one of the features as "Supports OpenTV"
