    Yes, you can keep your current HD receiver, 622 will run you $299.

    Not if you want to keep the 942. The word at this time is that in order to get the rebate you must turn in your 921/942 - whether you lease it or own it.

    I broke down and ordered a 622 today. I was going to wait for the rebate but figured out my taxes and decided that I may soon need two HD receivers so I will just keep my 942 and use the 622 with my soon to be purchased living room HDTV (to go with the projector in the basement).

    I certainly hope that I can use both of these since I just paid $300 for the 942 a few months ago!

    I got my 622 last week, kept 921 with no problems having HD programing on both (at least all the programing E* will give to a 921.)

    I ordered my 622 today also. I will replace my 921 and keep the 942. She insisted that the 942 would get no HD programing. This is a supervisor. I said that it would get all current mpeg2 HD but no new HD, but she said it would receive none. This is not the case, right?

    CSR actually asked me if I wanted HD programing to stay on my 921. It's been a week since I activated the 622, HD still on both.

    She was wrong. The current Mpeg2 HD will be viewable on the 942 for some time. Probably not forever, though. 18-24 mos maybe?

    I ordered a 622 and plan on keeping my 942 for awhile. I am going to deactivate my 510 and sell it on Ebay. I figure a 942 even with just the MPEG2 programming is better than a 510.

    So with both the 622 and 921/942, what are all the fees you are charged besides
    the programming package?

    I have platinum HD package with locals for both my 921 and 622 plus a credit for partial AEP and HD package.
