Has anyone returned a 942 for warranty replacement? If so, did Dish sent you a 942 or something else in return?

I'm not having any issues with my 942 now, but eventually will want to replace it with a 622.

Don't know whether to buy the 622 now and sell the old one on E-Bay or to wait until the 942 breaks and hope for a 622 replacement.

Note: The 942 is what they sent me when my $1000 921 died.

Yeah, you will get a 942 for the forseeable future. Or you can upgrade to the 622 with the DIU program.

Dish replacement 942

What ever you do make sure they give you the 622 to keep and not lease.
I have had 4 921 hd boxes in the last 3 months and still have software problems new sw 331hecd is junk in a box!!! They wanted to give me a 622 upgrade and have to purchase a dish 1000 plus 10.00 a month HD Fee and 18 month commitment. What a crock dish is I have had them for over 12 years and all they want to do is screw you. I just got my 7th ra for a 921 they just dont care.

Me thinks I will reconfirm that the 942 is mine and sell it on E-Bay. It works fine and now is probably a good time to sell.

I'll buy a 622 from www.dishstore.net. They are having a sale this weekend. (Scott/ Claude: Notice shameless plug).

It would be my luck that I'd send it back to Dish sometime in the future and end-up with my old 921 back!

DISH won't upgrade older equipment with the newest available like that. Your options are to purchase an upgrade or stick with the 942.

I sold mine on Ebay. It went for $280/buy it now the first day. After Ebay fees and thieving PayPal I netted around $250.................. $.02
