    Well guys Sears may have discontinued the 921, but strangely they are still selling the specialty stand for the 921 , I got mine and it's just sitting here waiting for the 921

    I'm going to look into one of the racks for my future 921. It's ashame that Sears won't sell the 921, yet they sell the rack and the 921 tool set. Yep, Sears sells also sells the "tune-up" and repair kit for the 921. Here's the url:

    On a side note, I expect that Sears will have the 921 again as soon as it is shipping from Dish in quantity (i.e. out of QA Hold)...

    This is the second time that Sears has offered the 921 package on its website and then withdrawn it. But the operative word here is "PACKAGE" - the 921 PACKAGE was bundled with the infamous SuperDish! I'll bet once the 921 IS released, it will be available at Sears, either as a stand-alone or bundled with the Dish 500.

    Mine died twice and had heart attacks so many times that I couldn't even count (and gave myself hypertension during the process). On the other hand, 501 performed flawlessly as it is supposed to be as a commercially available product for consumers to enjoy trouble free.
    I don't follow this forum as much as I did sometime ago but still I do not understand this personal bickering and bad mouthing each other or other's postings.
    I full heartidly agree on anyone's claim that 721 was/is/will be an ill fated peace of electronic equipment. In my personal experience, 721 was the worst ever purchase I made in terms of AV equipment concerned.
    Now, play nice and go watch some Free Speech TV. There are more important things happening around us and the World.

    I'm sure this Motorola receiver will make the 921 look like the gold standard of HD PVRs :lol:

    I believe the issue is that most poster really want E to be successful and they dont like being reminded of its shortcomings, espically when they are trying to shell out a $1000 for a 921.

    The 721 would of been a great receiver if it had gotten the promised features and a bit better software.

    It appears TO ME the mistakes of the 721 are being duplicated on the 921:(

    Release a very expensive box with unfinished software, then attemot to add features and fix bugs on the fly. Even the 721s lost tuners are being duplicated by hardware failures on the 921:(

    E failed at their peromise the 921 roll out would be better than the 721s......

    sad state of affairs.

    I just tried to answer his question. Are you disputing my statement?

    The bickering is sad. The situation is sad. The dalays and troubles are sad. friend of my wifes bought a high def tv and after waiting for months cancelled E and got comcast. I will let you know what he has to say about their new DVR.

    I hope things improve soon!

    That may be, but Comcast folks would have to shell out only $10 per month to find out vs. $1000. :grin:

    Yes, and it is getting EXTREMELY annoying. Bob, why do you feel you have to hi-jack just about every thread? We all know how much you hate DISH and more and more you show that you can no longer offer any semblance of rational well thought out balanced posts. Give it a rest, PLEASE!

    Hijack, no I merely pointed out what my sears friend had to say about how sears handles products that arent available or have problems.

    He and I agree sears wants to sell stuff thats as trouble free as possible. with their money back guarantee they dont need the hassles.

    Did you know Sears is now ONLY a retailer?

    They sold NTB the tire chain, their fiancial services charge card business, coldwell banker real estate and everythuing else not sears store directly.

    Their entire survival depends on success at those stores. This will make them highly focused on success, do a bad job they will be like montgomery ward, zayres, and wt grant.

    They are planning on getting away from malls, new stores will all be free standing ones CHEAPER and provide groceries. They might even buy K mart???

    They have lots of cash from selling all that stuff off.

    Bob,

    Ken and I were not talking about your input on Sears (that was useful). We were talking about your DISH bashing (see Ken's quote of your post). THAT is the stuff that we don't need to read AGAIN and AGAIN from you.

    Point is, you've singlehandedly transformed alt.dbs.echostar into alt.dbs.rantandrave.echostar as you manage to take most every Dish Network topic and invariably spin it into a "this will be echostars final death nell" kind of post regardless of what the subject matter entailed with a healthy overabundance of rampant speculation/unfounded rumors. I get kinda tired myself of reading the same exact complaints posted over and over ad nauseum on usenet with the feigned contention that you aren't trolling by saying "hey its my opinion!". Everyones entitled to complain and voice their displeasures by all means, but you seem to go about doing it all the time. In a nutshell, the signal to noise ratio is heavily skewed towards constant complaining and constantly forecasting the inevitable premature doom of Dish Network as a company. No one else takes it quite to the extreme you seem to do and yet you still remain as a customer of Dish Network for some god forseen reason. Why are you still with Dish if they cause you this much hardship???? Anytime someone posts of a problem on alt.dbs.echostar, you tend to jump in with how there are reports everywhere of it as if you work for Dish Network in the Q and A engineering department yourself. Why not just tone it down a bit? I mean seriously Bob. You made the biggest deal ever over the DVR fees and you constantly like to bring up the fact that its likely to change in the future on the 501's, 721's etc... despite having no evidence whatsoever to support such claims. Everything Charlie does is the end of them as we know it. We know already. We've heard it a thousand times over. Come up with some new material for the sake of peoples sanities everywhere please.

    Unthinkable, why complain about my actvties on the newsgroups HERE!

    Do you complain about the hackers and thieves that inhabit that place HERE?

    I have more responses but not enough time right now to put them up. My activities here have been mild. If you dont klike me ANYWHERE just killfile me and be done with it!!!

    Most of you fail to realize the fees, bugs, and things like not acvtivating 322s and 522s are going to come back and bite dish where it hurts the most, churn...

    REMEMBER Charlie said and I quote: NO FEES AT THIS TIME
