. You posted sw spool info and FCC info. I'm not sure why you asked me to follow the link.
The only reason I would upgrade to Hopper 2 is for the send to iPad functionality. The rest seems trivial compared to a Hopper with a Sling which I already have.
You know, I don't get how you positioning yourself here, at the forum; are you an employee ? or beta tester ? or just label's reader at CES ? Seems to ignoring anything what is not posted by you and pretending you are the one who knows everything related to echo equipment... I don't get.
Just in case to refresh your wondering/curiousity level, do search here when the "XiP913" model has been mention first time ...
Yes, and it wouldn't surprise me if that $50 fee was lowered soon as well.
So, is there a DIRT team member we can contact about upgrading one of our Hoppers to the new model?
i was just someone who noticed the info in your posts was inconsistent/incorrect and said something about it.
I would reserve my answer to that time when the Hopper 2 will hit shelves.
Reserve my answer about the official name of the new Hopper model? I give up going back and forth with you, waste of time.
OK, first, I could not care less about whether it's called a Hopper 2 or Hopper with Sling or Super Duper Hooper Hopper.
But - I was planning to upgrade from my 722 + 2 612s setup to a two Hopper/one Joey setup in later January. Seems silly to not go with the latest and greatest, but would it really cost me $200-300? And is that per Hopper????
just wait for first wave - there should be a promotion for such customers as you ... so it could be your for free;
question is: when the H2 will hit the shelves ?
I read the end of the this month.
stop squeezing that things ! or we will get H2 tomorrow
We can start activating H2's on the 17th. Pricing is $200 to $300 per
H2 for upgrades. For new customers subscribing to AT120 or higher 1st H2 is free, a 2nd H2 will be $199. Up to 3 free joeys will still be free for most.
I find it interesting on Dish's part to alienate the base by charging a blanket seemingly exorbitant rate. Trolling for new customers by giving the stuff away is one thing but pissing off the beta testers and faithful here and elsewhere is another. I'm hopeful this will even out on a case by case basis for upgrades.... as it has in the past.
Hmmm. I'm paying over $100 per month, AT250, HBO, etc. If Dish wants to charge me over $600 to upgrade from my 722 and 2 612s to their latest Hopper technology, they may as well email me DirectTV's phone number - I assume they'll give me their latest technology for a lot less.
$600 to move up to the new DVRs is a real "screw you, existing customer" from Dish. (Oh, I forgot, this is the company that "cares" so much for their customers.)
My suggestion would be to WAIT until the receivers are available then work with DIRT.
Despite the higher "list price" for current customers, DIRT has been able to work out better deals for customers in good standing.
Back when Dish was fighting with AMC wife called and complained to Dish she was missing her shows and Dish sent us a Free Roku HD plus credited our account $35 so she could buy her shows off Amazon.
you are and your wife not only one who get the free Roku small box
Now this is just a great line ...
Agreed, makes perfect sense as always. Especially from someone who seems to always need to have the final word/post. Going as far as telling someone to not disturb a thread when i was confirming a posters idea because he was the last poster,weird dude in my opinion. Or if someone posts something he isn't sure of or posts info he doesn't have, regardless of the fact he has no idea about the posters validity, he argues it or says the poster is in some imaginary world. But it's cool, he's boss so ill keep an eye on my posts and make sure I get the P Smith seal of approval before posting,
