Does anyone know when the VOD feature will be available for the 510? I thought it was due by now, but as of Sunday, I don't have it yet. TIA!

When and how can I disable it on my ViP622 or 625? seems to be the more popular question.

Yep, it is crap. Too bad you can't disable it.

it doesn't take up alloted space on your hard-drive for recording, Dish had space built-in for things such as VOD. you have the same amount of HD space to record on whether VOD is there or not.

Yeah - but the physical drive space is reserved for VOD and we can't use it for real recording. :(

The ONLY reason for that is E*s greed.

I have 3 movies downloaded and ready for showing. Too bad as I would never use this service, i would prefer to use the space for recordings i want.

But on the 510, since no space was alloted for it from the beginning (that I know of) then I want the "VOD designated" space back on my 510 till they start using it. I am just speaking hypothetically here as I know alot of people have swapped drives in the 510's and have never reported having less disk space then they put in.

I do realize on the VOD enabled receivers we never lost any space, but on earlier receivers did they set aside space for this? That would be forward thinking and I have never seen them do that.
