    I was so excited for the official announcement but then i saw the small print on dish's website. No support for the 922 receiver!!!! What gives dish? Why would you not support your top of the line receiver?

    You mean this fine print:

    Limit one per account. Additional monthly fee will apply. Requires broadband Internet. Available with compatible DISH Network receiver models only (ViP® 622, 722, 722k). Restrictions may apply for existing customers to upgrade. Subject to change without notice. Other restrictions may apply.

    Wonder what the additional monthly fee will finally be?

    Since the 622/722 just got the updated software that allows this my guess is the 922 will get it "soon". :p I'll probably go ahead and get one to use on my 622 and then move it to the 922 when it's time.

    The 924 models were ... 942 was the early model number on the 622 model. Odd it gets a mention.

    My 942s were forced out of service and can't be re-activated for service. I can still get OTA with it (but no guide data except Digital Service). I'd certainly make it out as a typo of 922.

    I wonder if it would make any difference to a Dish customer if they were to purchase the $299 unit with no monthly $4 fee compared to the $179 Dish purchase.

    If you anticipate having the unit more then about 30 months it will be cheaper to avoid the $4 monthly fee.

    I see Dish installing the hardware directly into their next receiver at some point.

    I'm sure there will be a contract extension, most likely 24 months, which equals $96 to get the Revue.

    But if you can get all of this content from the internet, you may want to dump Dish and just have GTV and OTA. So you would be better off buying the Revue so you there would be no contract to hold you back.

    I'm going to wait to see what the monthly fee is before I purchase. Sounds great though :up:

    I must be missing something, what does that $4 a month get me that I can't get by just buying the box for $299, it looks like it integrates just fine with no additional software from Dish.
