Dish called me today (I was on the waiting list as of 1/16) and said 811's are now available. I was scheduled for 3/7, and it cost me $199. The guy was actually pretty polite, and even explained why they must send out an installer instead of sending me the box. He claimed Dish doesn't want to be sending a bunch of these $400+ receivers through the mail, fearing they would be stolen since they are in short supply. I don't know if that is true or not, but at least he was up front about it. Here's to hoping they hold to my 3/7 date and that a new version of software is out soon.
